The Fortnite X Dragon Ball event is here at last and with it comes some amazing features and items. The event brings quests to complete to gain Dragon Ball themed rewards, including a Shenron glider! The quests all involve using some of the new weapons, features, and items in the game including the Nimbus Cloud. Find out below how to find and use the Nimbus Cloud in Fortnite.
Finding and Using the Nimbus Cloud in Fortnite
The Nimbus Cloud (also known as Kintoun) was originally Son Goku’s item in Dragon Ball and is now available in Fortnite. The item is used much like the Witch Broom from Chapter 2 Season 4, or Silver Surfer’s Board from Chapter 2 Season 4. Players use it as a temporary glider, meaning they can travel about the island or escape trouble a little easier.
The Nimbus Cloud launches the player up and they fly on the cloud for a few seconds before landing. The Nimbus then has a 20 second cooldown before it can be use again. The Nimbus Cloud also destroys any structures in the way as it launches the player upward.
To obtain the Nimbus Cloud, players can either purchase one from a Dragon Ball Vending Machine, or an NPC such as Bulma for 250 Gold Bars, or they can unlock a Capsule Corps capsule and find one inside.
Unlike the Kamehameha, the Nimbus Cloud can be used over and over again in one match. The only restriction to it is the 20 second cooldown. It makes a whooshing sound as it is being used so it is easy to spot enemies who have one- or be spotted yourself!
That is all that you need to know about the new Nimbus Cloud item in Fortnite. Why not find one in a match and use it to try and find the familiar training ground somewhere in the map? Good luck!
