Despite Epic Games pledging to nerf the new and controversial Infinity Blade item in Fortnite Battle Royale, some of the game’s biggest content creators and pro players are still not satisfied.

The Infinity Blade is a powerful sword added to Fortnite on December 11, and after a contentious couple of days of seemingly endless complaints, Epic Games announced that they would be adjusting the item in the next game update.

However, upon reading the details of the announcement, many prominent content creators and pros remain unhappy about the Infinity Blade.

One of the more consistently seen complaints, which was ringing around before and after news of the nerfs was announced, is that the sword throws off the competitive/casual balance that exists within Fortnite.

Many are contending that the Infinity Blade should either be vaulted or be moved to its own Limited Time Mode, which would essentially be a blanket solution for all of the issues.

However, Epic Games do not seem to be inclined to go down that route, and have instead opted to introduce changes to the item and continue to have it in the game.

All that being said, it’s worth looking at some of the latest reactions of big-name content creators and pro players about the sword and the nerfs that Epic will be applying to it.

Included in these reactions are tweets from CouRage, DrLupo, 100 Thieves’ Parallax, I_AM_WILDCAT, CLG’s Wish, FaZe’s Cloak and Thiefs, and more.

Just days ahead of Fortnite’s Galactus live event on December 1, data-miners have leaked a highly anticipated Galactus skin without spoiling event details. 

Galactus, the “Devourer of Worlds,” has been approaching Fortnite’s island and his unavoidable arrival is finally nigh. In a one-time-only, live Season 4 “Nexus War” finale on December 1, Marvel’s world-eater and Epic Games’ player base will collide. 

While fans currently know that the gigantic, cosmic entity is making his way to the Island and that something will be happening on the aforementioned date at 4 p.m. ET, few details are available.

Fortunately for impatient aficionados of the battle royale, dataminers have leaked a Galactus skin that should be coming to the game’s shop with a bundle at some point.

The Galactus skin doesn’t seem massive, but it’s definitely spooky.

While it’s unclear exactly how similar this skin will be to the teased images of a gargantuan, shadowy Galactus shared by Epic themselves, the skin most certainly presents an imposing figure. 

Dressed in glistening jet black and red, the skin features regal, villainous armor bookended by chunky boots and a massive helmet. Eagle-eyed fans might even notice a particularly smug smile sitting across the infamous villain’s purple face.

It remains uncertain if this skin will be available for purchase and, if so, when it will be. But leakers like ‘ximton’ have discovered files indicating it could be part of a bundle. Still, in order to save fans from leaks, dataminers have remained largely quiet about specific event details.

Fortnite Galactus event – what we know so far

A variety of leaks have already surfaced, showing a gigantic Galactus and teasing the possibilities of a major battle between Marvel’s heroes and the cosmic world-eater. But Epic Games have tried to keep things on the low, only confirming that “the fate of all Reality lies in the balance.”

As mentioned earlier, the finale event begins on Tuesday, December 1 at 4 p.m. ET (1 p.m. PT, 9 p.m. GMT) and its exact duration is unknown. Epic have advised players to download the latest update (14.60) and Houseparty (which is integrated with Fortnite to allow for live video chat).
