Dragon Ball x Fortnite Makes Fortnite Worth Playing… For Now

Yes, you read the title of this piece right, the Dragon Ball x Fortnite crossover event has really made Fortnite worth playing.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of Fortnite. I tried to play it in the early days when the game started to gain popularity, and since I can’t build (or macro) the Empire State Building with the sound of a gunshot 500m away, or turn the mouse 180 degrees and shoot a player in the face, or yell like a 12-year-old into an open mic. I find that the combination of building and shooting is not to my liking. However, he was playing a lot of Player Unknown Battlegrounds (PUBG) before he got killed thanks to unlimited hackers and Chinese players filling every lobby in every game.

However, if there’s one thing that’s going to interest me in giving Fortnite another go, it’s a crossover with something fun, like Dragon Ball, and also being asked to test the game by the PR company that represents the Fortnite brand.

Now the Dragon Ball event won’t last long, which sucks because it’s the most fun you could have in Fortnite. What Dragon Ball brings to the Fortnite gameplay are two elements: the Nimbus cloud, an element that sends you back up into the air and slides you down as a quick escape or as a setup for the other element… wave Kamehameha from the show. Using the Kamehameha, charge up the show attack and deal an OVERPOWERED amount of damage to buildings and players alike. Seriously, this attack is so OP that it can kill a player with full health and shields in one go. Hearing Goku’s voice clip in sync with the attack will make you more nervous than any gunshot.

So outside of the in-game stuff, what else can you do in the Fortnite x Dragon Ball event? Well, I’m glad you asked.

One of the best things I would recommend you do is go to the exclusive Dragon Ball Adventure Island: a series of Dragon Ball related areas where you can do PvP battles using only Kamehameha attacks, collect capsules in all areas, and much more. I’ll drop the PR spiel about this area below, as it may show you more than I can tell you here:

Explore inspired by iconic locations from Dragon Ball. Fly through a circular course on a Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) in kami’s palaceprepare food in goku’s houseand go through an obstacle course in the Room of spirit and time. These are just some of the challenges you will face on your quest to collect the Dragon Balls.

When you’re ready, test your might in an open player-versus-player battlefield “Tenkaichi Budokai”, or simply continue exploring!

Believe me, this is one of those things that I highly recommend to any Dragon Ball fan to go and spend some time, as the areas you visit look so good you’ll think they’re ripped straight from the anime… And those of you who go and collect all 7 Dragon Balls in this mode you will see one of the most AWESOME scenes in Dragon Ball in such amazing detail you will never want to go back to the starting area.

Speaking of the 7 Dragon Balls, it wouldn’t be a crossover if you weren’t doing something related to getting those wonderful orbs in Fortnite too. By completing a series of missions through normal gameplay, you will obtain a Dragon Ball from one of the seven series of challenges. When you collect them all, your wish will be granted and you will get the Shenron Glider to use in the game. The challenges are not too difficult and you only need to do 3 per category to earn your Dragon Ball. At the time of writing, I’ve played for 3 days and managed to get 6 of the 7 Dragon Balls for myself, leaving me one step away from getting the Shenron Glider.

And that’s not all!

From August 16 to September 17, 2022, fans of the Dragon Ball Super series, as well as those discovering it for the first time, can board a cruise ship (created by the team at Vysena Studios) to relax watching select dragon ball super episodes!

you can find the Dragon Ball Super Episode Festival on Discover, or you can watch a specific episode using one of the following island codes:

See, like I said at the beginning, I’m not a Fortnite fan or a hardcore gamer, but this Dragon Ball crossover event has me playing almost every night with one of my friends (See a recent broadcast here) who hasn’t touched Fortnite in a long time either. The event seems to have brought a lot of people back into the game, and since there’s now a no-compile game mode, it might be enough to keep people playing for a long time… And it also gives me a chance to shout. WIN FOR VEGETA!!” when we get that Victory Royale.

While the event is going on, jump into a game, try to get the Nimbus and Kamehameha attack from random capsules that land in the game, or buy them from Bulma on Kame’s Island (Yes, Kame House is in the main game mode of Battle Royale now) for some gold, blow up some people and get that golden win for yourself. Maybe if you do, then we might get lucky and get the items to stick around like Vader does in the game.
