Fortnite’s newest game mode, Infinity Gauntlet, has only been live for a few hours, but developer Epic Games is already making a few changes, thanks to player feedback.

The Avengers: Infinity War-themed mode, which lets players take control of Thanos, the film’s antagonist, has proven popular with players, but a few complaint threads on Reddit convinced Epic to go back and reevaluate just how strong the Mad Titan is in Fortnite. Turns out, Thanos is just a little too strong, and they are going to tone him down a bit.

According to a post on Reddit from Epic, a hotfix has gone live that reduces Thanos’ shield and health by 100 each, and takes the damage of his laser down from 15 to 12.
