There has been a ginormous amount of new content that was added to Fortnite Season 7. We’ve seen the addition of new transportation methods, weapon wraps and vehicles, new map locations and much more. In the Season 7 trailer, we can see Sgt. Winter using and also The Ice King in the loading screen. We were unsure of how this sword would be brought to the game and assumed that it would most likely be some sort of pickaxe. A smaller data miner by the name of Fort Troy had a look in the files and discovered some interesting stuff.
Stg. Winters’ sword
Fortnite Season 7 Plane Loading Screen
From what we can see, it looks like Sgt. Winter and The Ice King are holding the same sword, however, that’s not the case. The Ice King is holding a sword that is glowing blue, the sword that Sgt. Winter is holding has a dim blue light down the middle of the sword. This might hint at the sword being reactive and could start glowing when players survive for a certain duration of time or get when players get kills. The sound files can be seen below.
These files were discovered the gameplay sound folder, these folders are not very specific to Battle Royale or Save The World, but the skins you see in the loading screen are the skins that can be unlocked from the Battle Pass. The sound files begin with “BR_Sword”, the files can be seen below.
As for now, this is all the information we have regarding the sword, but we’ll update you as soon as we know more!
