Versus Boards & Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud

Fortnite’s 21.40 update also brings new items to Battle Royale: Versus Boards and the Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) items.

Versus Boards have replaced Bounty Boards where once activated, an opponent will be marked on your map and you’ll be marked on theirs. You’ll then have five minutes to defeat your opponent.

The Kamehameha and Nimbus Cloud (Kintoun) are set to be powerful additions, allowing players to “wield the powers of Son Goku.” The Kamehameha allows players to “launch a devastating energy beam,” and the Nimbus Cloud grants the power of flight.
