Leak

Infinity ‘Blade in Stone’ prefab coming to Fortnite Creative

Published

on

The Infinity Blade was returned to Creative Fortnite in v8.20, but the ‘Blade in Stone’ was only teased in the patch notes. New leaks have revealed additional information.

The Infinity Blade initial launch was a poor decision by Epic Games to say the least. The weapon gave the player an ability to essentially fly and one-shot enemies with sword swipes.

To boot, the radius of the swings was iffy at best and the weapon simply out-classes every strategy to counter it. It destroyed builds, deleted players, and imbalanced the game in a way that was unacceptable.

It was recently added back into Fortnite, but only for Creative mode. It lacked the unique ‘Blade in Stone’ model that allowed players to play an unique animation of pulling the sword from the stone.

‘Blade in Stone’ Coming to Creative

The Blade in Stone will essentially allow Creative mode developers to actual create game modes that are reminiscent of the Infinity Blade’s launch days.

Currently, the Infinity Blade in Creative can only be placed into the world on the typical weapon spawn pads or simply spawned into the world. This doesn’t exactly do the weapon justice as it is a reference to King Arthur’s sword.

The Infinity Blade was leaked through the v8.30 files on Reddit by ‘kspaar’ with an image as well as a kill feed message.

This will allow creators to use the unique mechanics of the Infinity Blade along with the animations and location changes of the ‘Stone’. The stone seems to be a slab of icy rock plucked from region around Polar Peak and Frost Flights.

We’re happy to see the Blade in Stone be added to the Creative mode as it should make for some interesting creations. Epic Games tweets out daily Creative Islands with unique ideas and we’re sure to see one or two with the Blade in Stone soon enough.

Initial Infinity Blade Release

Broken, imbalanced, and overpowered – via Epic Games

If you were not around for the initial release of the Infinity Blade, you should be glad. The Blade was so over-powering that it literally threatened to destroy the game.

The Blade was pulled from ground/ice and gave the player who found it full shields and health…200 health and shields. It was essentially the Thano LTM, but inside the core experience.

The Blade has a long range jumping strike that allowed players to jump insane distances without fall damage. The weapons strikes do 75 damage per swing and can hit several players at once.

Yeah…it was a hard time for Fortnite players, but has already proven to be a lot of fun in Creative mode. We hope to see the ‘Blade in Stone’ bring even more cool designs to Fortnite Creative.

How to unlock the Armored Kratos style in Fortnite

Kratos from God of War has made it to Fortnite. Find out how to unlock the Armored Kratos style for free in Season 5.

Kratos has landed on the Fortnite island, but his single style isn’t his only form. Here’s how to unlock his Armored outfit.

After a full season worth of crossovers, Epic slowed things down with Fortnite Season 5. The new season was released with only one crossover character in the roster: The Mandalorian.

It only took a couple of days for Epic to add to their Season 5 crossover roster. On December 3, Kratos from God of War came to the Item Shop. This preceeds the rumored addition of Master Chief from the Halo franchise.

Although God of War is a Playstation exclusive video game, players on all platforms could grab Kratos and his skin pack. You know that Sony had to do something for their console owners, however.

PlayStation players who play a single game with the Kratos skin will unlock the Armored Kratos style for their skin – it’s as simple as that.

Unfortunately, Android, Xbox, PC, and Nintendo Switch players will need to stick to the standard Kratos outfit – unless you have a PS5 lying around.

If you don’t have a PlayStation on-hand, the only option you have is to ask a trustworthy friend to log onto your account and play a game for you. Giving out your account information is risky and usually a bad idea, so proceed with caution.

Hopefully for Xbox players, Microsoft will have the same deal with Epic Games when Master Chief comes to the Item Shop. He’s one of the most iconic characters in all of gaming and will probably be a popular pick on all platforms.

All Fortnite Season 5 Exotic Weapon locations

Fortnite Season 5 brought Exotic weapons to the game to replace Mythics. Here’s where to find all of them.

Fortnite Season 5 introduced Exotic weapons to the game instead of Mythics, giving more players access to them. Here’s where you can find them.

There’s no shortage of new mechanics in Fortnite Season 5, with the addition of NPCs, quests, and a whole lot more.

Mythics have returned to the game in Season 5 but in a limited capacity. The only classic Mythic items in Fortnite Season 5 include The Mandalorian’s Jetpack and sniper rifle, both available from the bounty hunter himself.

The other items in the game are classified as Exotics. There’s only one of each Mythic item in each game, but can be multiple Exotic weapons.

You can purchase these Exotic weapons from specific NPCs across the map. Of course, this means you’ll need to save up your Gold Bars to afford them.

Twitter user @MikeDulaimi created an easy-to-follow guide on how to locate all of the Exotic weapons in Fortnite. You can purchase them from NPCs in the areas surrounding Hunter’s Haven, The Zero Point, Dirty Docks, Craggy Cliffs, and Stealthy Stronghold

Mythic items were relatively controversial for the past few seasons of Fortnite – especially in competitive modes. Doom’s Mystical Bomb and Kit’s Shockwave Launcher dominated tournament play for the past two seasons, and the competitive community largely called for them to be removed.

We’re curious to see how this community treats Exotic weapons. They’re more widely available and aren’t as powerful as Mythics, making them more balanced than the latter – that is, until a player eliminates the NPC selling them.

Glitches

Game-breaking bug causing invisibility/God Mode in Fortnite Season 5

Players have already found a game-breaking glitch in Fortnite Season 5, causing players to go invisible and become invulnerable to damage.

Published

Fortnite Season 5 wasn’t released bug-free. In fact, there’s already a game-breaking bug causing players to become invisible and invulnerable to damage.

Every major update in almost every video game brings a few bugs with it, and Fortnite is no different. This is almost always the case when video games add new mechanics, as Fortnite did with Season 5.

This game-breaking bug has to do with the new sand mechanic. For those who don’t know, the center of the Fortnite island is now covered with quicksand. If you stand on the sand for too long, it sinks you in.

The quicksand isn’t a bad thing. It can actually benefit players, offering a hiding spot and increased movement speed, as seen below.

However, on the flip side, it’s also causing a bug that makes players invisible and invulnerable to damage. This isn’t the first invisibility glitch we’ve seen in Fortnite. Older patches had the same issue with Port-A-Potties.

This glitch appears to be more prevalent than the previous ones, however. We’ve seen several reports of this happening to players – sometimes even multiple times in a single play session. The Port-A-Potty glitch required more intention on the part of the players involved.

Hopefully, Epic get this sorted sooner rather than later. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the sand-sinking mechanic disabled ahead of the next update if Epic can’t push a hotfix to address the problem.

We don’t know whether this glitch is intentional on the part of infracting players or if there’s a method to trigger the issue. We’ll let you know when we find out more about the problem.
