Infinity Blade Bug Explained After Winter Royale Finals


Reddit user gives excellent explanation and video showing the infinity blade bug and how to avoid it

High profiled Fortnite streamers have been very vocal against the Infinity Blade. Most notable, Liquid’s 72hrs, who lost his potential first place standing because of fall damage, wielding the blade. It was not just 72hrs who encountered bugs. More players below.
If you have not seen the clip, look at the kill feed, you can see 72hrs eliminating himself. He immediately took to twitter to voice his frustration. I am sure you have either seen the clip or read the tweet by now.

Casters mentioned that the 72hrs incident was not a bug, instead had to do with the animation of the sword. Reddit user, tinyfred, then posted a detailed video, of himself reenacting, high falls wielding the sword. The video confirms and shows you that that, indeed, it is an Infinity Blade Bug. The Bug occurs when your sword clips a wall or floor. Here is the video:
