One For All comes to Fortnite in the new My Hero Academia crossover event – here’s how to get your hands on Deku’s Smash.
Just like the Kamehameha in the Dragon Ball crossover, there’s a new Mythic item to discover in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1’s new collaboration.
This time around the Battle Royale title has partnered with My Hero Academia, a long-running manga and anime series that takes place in a school for heroes-in-training.
You won’t want to miss out on using Deku’s Smash while you have the chance, so here’s where to find the Quirk in Fortnite:
How to Get Deku’s Smash in Fortnite
To get the Deku’s Smash Mythic, players will need to find and search special All Might-themed Supply Drops that appear mid-game around the island.
Alternatively, you can purchase Deku’s Smash for 250 Gold Bars at a My Hero Academia vending machine.
Of course, you can always eliminate another player and take Deku’s Smash from their loot, if they had the Mythic themselves!
Super-Functioning Vending Machine Locations
The special My Hero Academia-themed vending machines can be found in Frenzy Fields, north of The Citadel, and in Crude Harbor at the very northeast tip of the island.
Each of these Super-Functioning Vending Machines will sell Deku’s Smash for 250 Gold Bars.
My Hero Academia Vending Machines also reportedly have an 18% chance of spawning instead of a Weapon-O-Matic Vending Machine at POIs around the island.
Supply Drops with balloons in the form of All Might will also be visible when they’re dropping in, and you won’t miss them – thanks to a large balloon resembling the number one hero himself.
Although these Supply Drops have no set locations, they’ll be dropping around the island during your Fortnite Battle Royale games.

How to Use Deku’s Smash
To use the Deku’s Smash Mythic, simply equip it in your weapon list and press RT/R2/Left Click to fire. This will cause you to leap into the air and charge up a smash before unleashing it in an aimed direction.
Any structure in the vicinity will be blown to bits from the force of One For All’s power, and enemy players won’t want to take the attack head-on.
Be careful though, Deku’s Smash’s charge time does leave you exposed, so try activating it when an enemy is hiding inside a building, rather than in a 1-on-1 shootout.
What Is Deku’s Smash in Fortnite?
Deku’s Smash is an attack stemming from One For All – the name of a special Quirk (or superpower) in the My Hero Academia franchise, currently in the possession of Izuku Midoriya (Deku). Using it grants the user immense strength, so long as their body can handle it.
Unlike other Quirks that a large percentage of the population is simply born with, One For All is passed down from person to person, allowing new heroes to cultivate and expand its power.
At the start of My Hero Academia, Quirk-less protagonist Izuku Midoriya receives One For All from All Might, the number one hero. And with it, he takes on the responsibility to become the next Symbol of Peace.
Later on in the story, we learn there’s a little more to One For All than initially believed. But we won’t spoil what happens next here!
