SypherPK, one of the biggest content creators in Fortnite, is always on top of the latest changes and additions in the game. He believes that Epic Games might have buffed the mythic superpowers secretly.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 4 has been overrun with Marvel heroes and villains. Whether that has been through cosmetics, POIs on the map, or Marvel-related challenges. The biggest, and sometimes most controversial, addition has been with the mythical superpowers.
These mythic powers are captured by eliminating the hero or villain that contains them. While they are definitely the strongest weapons in the game, they haven't guaranteed a victory royale, until now.
Fortnite Content Creator SypherPK Reveals Buff to Superpower Abilities
In a YouTube video on SypherPK's channel, Sypher was playing Siphon Squads when he began to notice that the mythic powers were stronger than ever.
According to Sypher, the Doctor Doom bomb will do 90 damage instead of its typical 60. The Doctor Doom gauntlets do 45 damage instead of 35. That is a significant boost for the gauntlets because they don't need any reload time and can fire nonstop at opponents.
Iron Man's Unibeam ability has become absolutely unbeatable in Siphon Squads, now dealing out 150 damage. Sypher regarded the buff for the Unibeam as "insane" and it will be interesting to see what other players think.
While Epic Games has not publicly came out and addressed the buff, it is possible that the boost in powers is to prepare for the battle with Galactus at the end of the season where every damage point matters on the battlefield.
