Acquire one of these katanas and perform the artful Knockback Slash. Not holding back? Show no mercy and perform the devastating Dash Attack. The Dash Attack has three charges that enter a cooldown upon use.

Kinetic Blade is a Melee Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Chapter 4: Season 2. Its Mythic version is Thorne's Vampiric Blade.

Functionality[]

Kinetic Blade is a sword melee weapon. Its basic attack is the Knockback Slash, which consists of two quick slashes, both dealing 35 damage. The second slash knocks opponents back a distance. Opponents hit by this attack are not given a shockwave effect, and will take fall damage if knocked back from a considerable height.

Its second attack, the Dash Attack, has you charge forward to deal 60 damage to opponents. This attack has 3 charges and a cooldown time of 10 seconds.

Strategy Guide[]

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite
This section outlines a strategy.
Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • Unlike the Shockwave Hammer, you cannot have more than one Kinetic Blade in your inventory.
  • Kinetic Blades have separate cooldowns, meaning you can drop you current blade and pick up another to refresh your charges.
  • The Dash Attack can be used for quick mobility or gaining access to higher ground, if its charges are managed appropriately.
  • The Dash Attack has a startup lag, which leaves you vulnerable to enemy fire.
  • Using the Dash Attack negates fall damage, which means it can be used to descend heights easily.

History[]

Chapter 4: Season 2[]

  • Update v24.00: Added the Kinetic Blade in Epic rarity to both Battle Royale and Creative.
  • Update v24.10: Changed the Kinetic Blade's icon to the Save the World Founder's Masamune (bug).
  • Update v24.20: Added a Rare rarity that has identical damage but only two Kinetic Dash charges.
    • Also added the Rare version to Creative.
  • Update v24.30: Fixed the bug where the Kinetic Blade's icon depicted the Founder's Masamune.
  • Update v24.40: Approx. 5:40 PM est: The Kinetic Blade was vaulted for the rest of the season, due to a bannable exploit.
    • The exploit being where disconnecting one's wifi would cause the match to bug out whilst using it, allowing people to eliminate others unfairly.

Chapter 4: Season 4[]

  • Update v26.10: Updated the visual effects of the Kinetic Blade. Remains vaulted.
