Fortnite players thought they were finally free of the game’s overpowered Infinity Blade when it was removed three days ago – but they were wrong. Despite being encased in an ice block, the sword’s mystical powers live on.
Multiple Reddit and Twitter users have reported a bug where the Infinity Blade’s smashing effect mysteriously reappears and follows them around wherever they go. It’s like a guardian angel – except one which destroys anything you build, preventing you from protecting yourself from incoming fire.
It’s unclear if anything in particular triggers the bug, but it seems to have come about after the game’s latest update, which rolled out this morning. Although most of the reported cases show this bug appearing on the PC version, a couple have also displayed it on PS4.
