Epic Games have announced they have vaulted the Infinity Blade found in Fortnite Battle Royale.

Since the weapon was introduced in v7.01 early this week, players have been complaning about how overpowered the weapon is. Epic addressed this in a Reddit post yesterday, stating they will be make a change in the v7.10 update.

However, Epic have just tweeted out stating they have vaulted the Infinity Blade as they feel it was overpowered without any good counters to it, especially in the end game. The Blade has been vaulted and Epic will re-evaluate their apporach with Mythic Items.

“Heya folks, We messed up and rolled out the Infinity Blade overpowered / without good counters, especially in the end game. The Infinity Blade has been Vaulted and we are re-evaluating our approach to Mythic items. Thanks for calling us out on this!”

I’m sorry for Epic games, they should not eliminate the sword, every new item the Fortnite community complains about. The problem is not the items but the community that does not accept changes in the game. I miss the various items that were removed for her claims, I think Epic should re-evaluate your audience and keep up with the news without removing the game.

the sword was shit. anyone saying we needed to adjust to the changes can fuckoff. why do you think they vaulted so many weapons already? either they were not being used or they were way to strong. drum gun for example. most of u tards are fcking kids anyway and do not understand the concept of ballancing a game so you dont need 1 specific weapon to win the goddamn game.
