Fortnite has introduced four new weapons in the game and one of them is the Kinetic Blade. This powerful Katana weapon glows with a purple hue. Knocking back players using the Kinetic Blade is part of the weekly challenge in Fortnite. The Katana weapon has two major attacks: one of them is a Knockback Slash and the other is a Dash Attack. First, you need to find this weapon and then proceed with the challenge. To knockback players, use the Kinetic Blade's Knockback Slash on three different enemies which will complete the challenge. It will knock your enemies far away each time you use the Knockback Slash.

Since, this weapon works best in close range combat, it's better to use other weapons in combination to attack and defend. Kinetic Blade can be found as part of the floor loot, or from chests. You can even get this weapon after defeating enemies who already acquired it. You will be able to find it in the newer areas of the map such as Knotty Nets, Steamy Springs, Kenjutsu Crossing and East of Mega City.
