Prior to this announcement, Epic took to Reddit in an attempt to address concerns the community had. Initially, they had planned to roll out some adjustments with the 7.10 update, but that appears to no longer be the case. This alteration would have removed the player’s ability to harvest resources and build while carrying the Infinity Sword.
For the unfamiliar, the Infinity Sword was an absurdly rare weapon that allowed the wielder to vault towards foes and cleave enemies for 75 base damage. The blade also increased the user’s shields and health making them very difficult to kill. Since users could just cut through any structure and was not restricted to a LTM (Limited Time Mode), the blade made its way into the competitive scene. This created a wave of anger as the weapon took over entire matches and require very little skill to effectively wield.
With the blade now retired for an unknown amount of time, it will be interesting to see if Epic decides to ever add a Mythic weapon back into the core game.
