Unfortunately, the Fortnite community hasn’t yet discovered a way to lift Thor’s hammer (Mjolnir). Although it appears to be impossible at the moment — even playing as Captain America won’t help — it seems likely that Epic Games will release an update allowing players to use Mjolnir as a mythic melee weapon in the future.

The arrival of Mjolnir, which can be found southwest of Salty Springs in a crater, most likely isn’t the end of this story. Not only would that be disappointing for everyone involved, but Fortnite itself has retweeted fans’ efforts to lift Thor’s hammer. That’s caused more hype around the Fortnite Mjolnir situation, which @FortniteGame wouldn’t likely have stirred up if there weren’t further plans for Thor’s hammer.
