The Fortnite Dragon Ball Collaboration Is as Crazy as You Expected

Gameplay trailer: Epic Games reveals the Fortnite x Dragon Ball Super collaboration characters (Goku with guns), items, events, & emotes Beerus Vegeta Bulma

Epic Games has officially unveiled the Fortnite x Dragon Ball collaboration and gameplay trailer, revealing playable Son Goku, Vegeta, Bulma, and Beerus, along with seven sets of Quests (available through August 30) you can complete to earn seven Dragon Balls, which unlocks a Shenron Glider. Completing Quests also raises your new “Power Level” to unlock Dragon Radar Back Bling, Emotes, Sprays, and Battle Pass levels. There are additionally new “Versus Boards,” which temporarily replace Bounty Boards, where you will have just five minutes to defeat a single opponent in a one-on-one battle.

There is still way more content where that came from for the Fortnite x Dragon Ball collaboration, as there are new Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) items available in Battle Royale, courtesy of Capsule Corp. There are also multiple Dragon Ball locations available to visit in the Fortnite world, such as the Kame house, where you can buy powerful items from Bulma; the cruise ship from Dragon Ball Super, where you will be able to use codes to watch six different Dragon Ball Super episodes from August 16 until September 17; and Dragon Ball Adventure Island, where, among other things, you can “Soar through a ring course on a Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) at Kami’s Palace, prepare food at Goku’s House, and traverse an obstacle course at the Room of Spirit & Time.”

There are even more Dragon Ball items and events where that came from, including a Tournament of Power on August 18 for Battle Royale Duos. Check out the Fortnite info page for nitty-gritty details. But the bottom line is — yes, Goku uses guns now.
