Balloons allow you to get some tactical advantages in combat, and here is how you can get them in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2!
Epic Games is constantly trying to mix up the formula for Fortnite. The recent attempt to keep the game fresh includes the return of the famous Balloons.
Recently, the developer added the Shield Bubbles, a throwable grenade-like item that attaches to any object but not to players.
The force has also been strong on Fortnite, with some Star Wars content featured for the May 4 celebration. Also, rumors hint the Star Wars frenzy could continue with upcoming Obi-Wan and Darth Vader collaborations!
Fortnite: What Do Balloons Do & How to Use Them?
Balloons are a returning item in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. Using this item reduces gravity and negates fall damage. Players can stack up to 10 Balloons.
You can use Balloons by equipping them and pressing the fire button. To release a balloon, you simply need to press the crouch button.
Balloons can be collected and then used up to three at a time, granting different effects depending on how many you use.
Furthermore, these are the effects you can get by using Balloons in Fortnite:
- One Balloon – Reduce gravity, negates fall damage
- Two Balloons – Greatly reduces gravity
- Three Balloons – Player gets lifted upwards
Keep in mind that Balloons only last a short period of time, so use them wisely!
These are some great tactical uses for Balloons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2:
- Spam them quickly while falling to avoid fall damage
- Traverse longer distances faster by equipping one Balloon, reducing gravity, and jumping longer distances
Where to Find Balloons in Fortnite?
You can find Balloons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 in Chests, Rare Chests, Floor Loot, and Supply Drops.
Nevertheless, remember that Balloons are considered Rare loot, so it might take a while before you can find one.
These are some excellent locations to find Balloons in Fortnite due to the number of chests present in the area:
- Tilted Towers
- The Daily Bugle
Currently, Balloons are unvaulted for the Donation Station trial period. They will be vaulted on May 16 once the voting trial period ends at 11:59 PM ET.
If you want this item to remain on the game, make sure to vote for it! Aside from these returning items, Fornite is also getting the Creative 2.0 editor later this year.
As well, if you used to play on your iPhone, you can do so once again for free! Fortnite was recently added to Xbox Cloud Gaming as its first free-to-play title, working on iOS and other devices.
Lastly, if you are a Jurassic Park fan, there might be some good news! A leaker recently suggested a Jurassic World x Fortnite collaboration could come in Season 3.
