Fortnite’s Infinity Blade should return – On one condition

The overpowered Infinity Blade was removed from Fortnite because of its devastating effects, but bringing it back inside a limited time mode could be its pathway back into battle royale in the future. 

The sword was introduced with the v7.01 patch at the beginning of Season,  but lasted just eight days before it became so irritating for both casual and competitive gamers that Epic Games decided to vault the weapon on December 14 of last year.

Now, though, one Fortnite fan has proposed an idea that could allow the Infinity Blade to make a much more balanced appearance in the battle royale game – by making it available to everybody in a LTM. 

The Infinity Blade would destroy structures with one hit and proved too powerful for Epic to keep in Fortnite.

This idea would trap the overpowered blade in one specific game mode, much like the Battle Royale Infinity Gauntlet LTM, which allowed one player per session to pick up a mythic item and transform into Thanos, a fictional supervillain from Marvel Comics.

However, this concept would have a slight twist. TheMewZe posted their newest ClosER Encounters LTM concept to the FortniteBR subreddit and revealed that they would like to see not just one, but potentially up to one hundred of them in one game!

“Everyone spawns with the Infinity Blade! It will be fair because will be on a perfectly equal playing field, with an awesome item” the Reddit user posted, laying out the rules of the proposed mode. 

Due to the huge support of my last idea for an LTM, I thought I would try ‘ClosER Encounters!’ (featuring The Infinity Blade) from r/FortNiteBR

They also stated that it would be a good idea – if the concept was ever added to the game – to have the speed and damage of the storm doubled as players can move around quicker while wielding the sword.

It proved to be very polarizing when it was first added to the game, as it would give whoever held it 200 health and shield automatically, with that replenishing every time they eliminated another playing. This led to many professional gamers and streamers calling for the Infinity Blade to be removed even after nerfs were applied. 

But, could this LTM concept be a way that it returns in the future?

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.

Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
