Kenjutsu Crossing is the best area to find a Kinetic Blade in Fortnite. This new POI has nine Kinetic Blades within the main building, so you should have no trouble getting your hands on one.
Alternatively, you can buy a Kinetic Blade from Mizuki, an NPC. She can be located within the eastern watchtower to the right of The Citadel in the map’s northern section.
Kinetic Blades, on the other hand, spawn all throughout the futuristic biome in the map’s southeast region, so as long as you’re in that area, anyone should really be able to find it without paying any Gold Bars.
How to use a Kinetic Blade to knock back opponents in Fortnite
The Kinetic Blade serves two purposes: The first is a basic attack that can be launched by pressing the aim button (L2 on PS5). If you land three consecutive hits, you will knock your opponent backward.
The second is a charged attack which can be activated by pressing the fire button (R2 on PS5). Hold it for a few seconds, then leap forward in a straight line before unleashing a strong katana swipe.
This charged attack can be used three times before it needs to be recharged. You can also utilize this charged assault to quickly cross the distance, which is useful for making a quick escape or avoiding the storm.
