This whole new announcement holds water regarding the recent data mining. Apparently, not only Fortnite will receive a Limited Time Mode based on cold weapons such as Swords and elevate the fight into a melee range but may also stay persistent for the current season.
The sword, however, reminds on a very similar version included in Epic Games’ video game, Infinity Blade.
Well, if introduced in the current and stable version of the Battle Royale mode, it will probably serve the bearer with particular powers.
However, if the weapon is being added only because of the coming LTM (according to recent leaks), then we may not see it in the standalone BR version.
Entitled as a weapon fit for a King, the Infinity Blade is yet to become a part of the current weapon arsenal.
