Fortnite has introduced a new god tier weapon that well, literally makes you a god. The Infinity Blade is a one-location-only sword you can pull out of the ground at Polar Peak, and it turns you into a superpowered death tornado. It is similar to when Thanos arrived in Fortnite, but the big difference is that this is not a separate LTM in the game, but a part of all the standard modes.
The result of this is some crazy games not just for millions of Fortniteplayers, but also in the pro scene where players were forced to adapt to the new insanity of the sword just hours after it had arrived in the game, and the matches were as chaotic and absurd as you might expect, throwing all traditional strategy and practice out the window as soon as someone leaped 60 feet through the air at you with a sword the size of their body.
Players and pros alike have been calling for Epic to remove the sword from competitive, or even to remove it entirely from standard Fortnite modes and to make it its own LTM instead as we had with Thanos. But the only response from Epic about the issue from Epic was buried so far in a downvoted Reddit thread I could barely find it:
“We've fixed an issue that was causing the Infinity Blade to grant +100 HP on elimination in Explorer Pop-Up Cup, rather than +50 HP. Eliminations with the Infinity Blade in the Explorer Pop-Up Cup will now only grant +50 HP.”
That’s correct, Epic’s only comment on all this is saying that they’ve fixed a bug that was granting 100 health on kill instead of 50 health on kill.
