Fortnite’s Infinity Blade is back in the Sword Fight LTM

The previously vaulted blade is back, and hopefully it’s been re-balanced.

Epic first rolled out the Infinity Blade in December’s v7.01 update, but it was quickly vaulted after it was decided that it was too overpowered.

But now, the blade is back in a new Sword Fight LTM, and can be found in treasure chests throughout the map.

“Treasure chests contain Epic or better weapons, as well as the occasional Infinity Blade,” reads the LTM’s description. “Fight your opponents to find out who is worthy of the Blade… and who is not.”

The sword was an homage to Epic’s Infinity Blade series, after all three games were removed from the App store.

At the time the Fortnite sword was vaulted, the dev said it “messed up and rolled out the Infinity Blade overpowered,” but it was still being found by some players after it was removed. This was later addressed in a hotfix.

Since it’s back in business, Epic has presumably ironed out the kinks.

As we barrel towards Season 8, Fortnite’s map is cracking up, as players prepare for tremors and an earthquake of epic proportions.
