Fortnite: How The Kinetic Blade Works

The Kinetic Blade is quite powerful and has already become a favorite in Fortnite. With the Kinetic Blade's basic attack "Knockback Slash", you can inflict damage on other players and send them spinning through the air for quite a bit. The attack consists of two quick blows that both deal 35 damage. This can be especially useful for confusing enemies or knocking someone off a ledge to their death.

The other ability, "Dash Attack", allows you to charge up a dash that will propel you forward and deal 60 damage to an enemy you've targeted. This attack is also useful to move quickly, as you can perform the attack several times in a row in the air, for example to escape the storm, or to push an enemy. This attack has 3 charges and a cooldown of 10 seconds.

And that's all you need to know about the Kinetic Blade in Fortnite. We wish you a lot of fun with the new weapon!
