Another day, another teaser. Epic have posted a new teaser for Fortnite: Battle Royale's upcoming Avengers: Endgame crossover, and this time it's not Captain America's shield but Thor's Stormbreaker axe, but the hand holding it is peculiar.

As you're probably well aware by now, Thor: Ragnarok saw good ol' Mjolnir busted into pieces, prompting him to go and forge the Stormbreaker, which should be the meanest weapon in the history of Asgard.

As you can see from the teaser image, there's only one person that is worthy of carrying the mighty Stormbreaker. No, it's not Thor you peasants, it's the mighty Fishstick, whose power far exceeds puny Thor's magic tricks.

Jokes aside though, Fortnite's Avengers: Endgame crossover kicks off on Thursday, 25 April 2019, so one more day until we see what Epic and Marvel have in store. 

Much like the earlier tease, Epic's tweet only lists the date and the phrase "whatever it takes", so Fortnite's maker is obviously sticking to their secretive ways until the last moment.

If we had to speculate though, and we do, we'd say that the new Fortnite crossover will be similar to the Thanos one, except it will feature more weapons.

After all, the first tease had Captain America's vibranium shield in the spotlight, while the second one is about Stormbreaker - both wielded by Fortnite characters. 

Whether any of Avengers: Endgame characters end up in Fortnite is anyone's guess at the moment, but their arsenal sure seems to be heading our way.

Hopefully, this crossover ends up with fewer bugs as the Thanos one had a few genuinely scary ones, especially the one where he could construct and use weapons, in addition to his deadly arsenal of superpowers.

Following the reports of relentless crunch in Telltale and Rockstar, some Epic's employees came out with claims of a constant crunch caused by Fortnite's success, which is quite ironic considering the lengths they take to help other developers.
