The Fortnite Kamehameha is an incredibly powerful weapon lifted directly from the Dragon Ball series, and even though the crossover event has now concluded you can still currently find and use it in the battle royale. Once you charge up and unleash the Kamehameha beam it will travel over a massive distance, and any enemies or structures that get in its way will receive huge damage. This makes the Fortnite Kamehameha a priority item to get hold of, as your opponents have nowhere to hide from its searing energy blast.

Furthermore, this weapon is required to beat several of the Fortnite quests, which include eliminating players and destroying structures with Kamehameha attacks. That makes them even more sought after in Fortnite, and their scarcity means you're unlikely to stumble upon one by accident. That's why we're here to help, with everything you need to know about where to find the Fortnite Kamehameha and how to use it.

There is now only one location where you can guarantee finding a Fortnite Kamehameha, thanks to the removal of the three Dragon Ball Vending Machines at the end of the Dragon Ball event. The Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud can still be purchased with gold bars from one of the Fortnite characters, Bulma, who is found by visiting the familiar training location on a small island in the bay to the east of Sanctuary.

Alternatively, you can track down Fortnite Capsule Corp capsules by observing their trails in the sky then closing in on one of their glowing locations, which are also indicated by icons on the map. When you find a capsule, interact and open it like a chest to receive both Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud items.

Each Fortnite Kamehameha you collect is capable of firing three times, with a cooldown between each blast to stop players spamming this incredibly powerful attack. You can only carry one at a time, so if you try to pick up a second Kamehameha it will automatically swap out with the one you currently hold in your inventory. When you pull the trigger, you'll chant and float up into the air for a couple of seconds before unleashing a beam that cuts through anything in its path – while charging up you can freely aim the reticule, but once the blast starts you can only make small tweaks to the direction you're firing in, so use those initial seconds wisely to line up with your target if you want to destroy structures and eliminate players with the Kamehameha in Fortnite.
