Fortnite just got its first update of Season 7, and there’s only one item that people want to talk about: The Infinity Blade. This is a brand new mythic weapon capable of taking out players as well as structures. At the moment players are complaining that the Infinity Blade may be too overpowered, which means if you’re looking forward to destroying everything in sight with that sword, you better do it now before it’s nerfed. Find it at Polar Peak.
That’s not the only new weapon, though. A new rifle called “Ralphie’s Revenge” has also been added to Fortnite. For those of you who watch A Christmas Story ever year as a holiday tradition, you’ll appreciate the fact that Ralphie’s Revenge grants devastating head-shots. Go put some eyes out, kid.
The full patch notes can be found here, but here are the main highlights:
- This Mythic melee weapon can be found on Polar Peak.
- Primary Fire delivers a powerful sword slash. It deals big damage to enemies and destroys structures in one blow (75 damage to players).
- Alternate Fire allows the player to leap great distances, destroying objects in its path. Upon landing, it delivers damage and a knock-up to nearby players (25 damage).
- The wielder of the sword is also granted additional abilities:
- An increased pool of max Health and Shields (200 Health/200 Shields).
- Regeneration of effective Health over time up to max Health and Shields (1 HP per second).
- An instant burst of effective Health upon elimination of an enemy (50 HP).
- Increased movement speed (130%).
- The first player to pull the Infinity Blade from its pedestal will be instantly healed to full Health and Shields.
- If a player picks up the Infinity Blade, all other inventory items aside from building materials will be dropped.
- When the wielder of the Infinity Blade picks up an item (aside from building materials), the Infinity Blade will be dropped.
- The Infinity Blade will be dropped when the wielder is knocked out or eliminated.
- Only one Infinity Blade will appear per match.
- When a plane is shot down, the driver and all passengers of that plane will now take 25 damage from the explosion.
We’ll see you all on the battle bus!
