The v17.21 update has arrived in Fortnite Season 7, and among the new changes is a brand-new Plasma Cannon. This neat pistol is part of the alien invasion, and here’s how you can get it.
It’s only been a week since Fortnite’s last major patch, but the 17.21 update is set to bring some new changes to Season 7. This includes Rift Zones, as well as an Ariana Grande concert and ICON Series skin.
The update also brings a brand-new mythical weapon known as the Plasma Cannon, which is capable of destroying alien structures almost instantly. You can now get your hands on this gun.
How to get the Fortnite Plasma Cannon
Epic Games revealed more details regarding this cool weapon in an official post on their website. The Plasma Cannon can be crafted in addition to being found on the Island.

You can collect it from IO Chests, as well as normal ones. Since the IO used Alien technology to invent it, the weapon can also be crafted by combining a Legendary Pistol with an Alien Nanite.
The IO were worried that the invading aliens might prove to be superior architects, so they invented the Plasma Cannon for the purpose of annihilating alien structures.
This weapon can fire plasma balls surrounded by an electrical dome that will trap enemies and deal repeated heavy damage to them before being impulsed back. Vehicles will be affected in the same way.
However, only one or two plasma balls can be deployed at the same time, so you’ll need to get multiple Plasma Cannons and cycle through them in order to find multiple plasma balls at once.

Fortnite leakers think Eminem skin could be coming soon
Fortnite leakers think that an Eminem collaboration could be on the way after the rapper took over the in-game Icon radio station.
Fortnite is no stranger to collaboration with real-life superstars, and players think that legendary rapper Eminem could be the next familiar face to make their way to the island in Chapter 3.
Crossovers have become a major part of Fortnite’s ongoing success. In the past, we’ve seen the likes of Spider-Man and Naruto arrive in the game, while Chapter 3 Season 3 introduced Indiana Jones and the upcoming Dragon Ball Z collaboration.
Aside from TV shows and movies, Fortnite has also made its name by working with some of the biggest music artists on the planet. Both Ariana Grande and Marshmello have held concerts in-game, with their skins available through the Icon Series.
Now, Fortnite leakers think they may have discovered which global superstar could be dropping into the game next.
On August 13, well-known Fortnite leaker Hyper discovered that 15-time Grammy award-winning rapper Eminem is currently the only artist playing on the Icon radio station played when driving vehicles.
The station was first added to promote the Silk Sonic collab back in February 2022, and usually features songs from the likes of Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Big Sean, and more.
However, for now, the radio has been taken over by Marshal Mathers himself, spinning the same 12 tracks on repeat:
- Godzilla (ft. Juice WRLD)
- Headlights (ft. Nate Russ)
- Not Afraid
- Venom – Lighters (ft. Bruno Mars)
- The Monster (ft. Rihanna)
- Walk on Water (ft. Beyoncé)
Fans of the rapper will notice that all of the tracks featured also appear on Curtain Call 2, his latest greatest hits album that was released on August 5.
If Eminem is set to come to Fortnite as a skin, it’s highly likely that it will serve as a promotion for the compilation, in the same way that movie crossovers usually take place around the film’s release, such as Uncharted or Avengers Infinity War.
While there’s no official word that an Eminem skin is on the way, all signs are pointing towards Slim Shady making an appearance in Fortnite very soon. We’ll be sure to update this page with more details as and when they are announced.

Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover event: Release date, skins, leaks & rumors
A Dragon Ball Z crossover is coming to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about it, including the annouced release date.
Epic Games are bringing cosmetic items and outfits from the Dragon Ball Z series to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this crossover, including the release date and leaks.
The recent Naruto crossover added new anime skins to the battle royale title, and Epic Games now have plans to bring even more fan-favorite anime characters. We’ll go over everything we know about the Fortnite and Dragon Ball Z crossover.
- Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover release date
- Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z leaked skins
- Leaked Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z Kamehameha Mythic
Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover release date
Epic have confirmed that the Fortnite and Dragon Ball Z crossover is set to release on Tuesday, August 16, just 3 days before the release of the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie.
This makes sense as Epic Games have previously released cosmetic sets for Uncharted and Doctor Strange around the times their respective movies were released in theaters.
Well-known Fortnite leaker Shiina has also claimed that we could see a Dragon Ball Battle Bus similar to the one in the Naruto crossover.
Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z crossover leaked skins
Although we know that the Dragon Ball crossover is arriving on August 16, there is still no word yet on what new cosmetics will be on offer.
On July 18, HYPEX tweeted that the Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z collaboration will feature 4 different skins, claiming that Goku, Vegeta & Beerus are confirmed to arrive in the battle royale title.
The leaker then added that while the fourth skin is currently unknown, it will most likely be a female character like Bulma. Players might be able to unlock these outfits by completing tasks similar to the Nindo challenges in the Naruto Rivals event.
Leaked Fortnite x Dragon Ball Z Kamehameha Mythic
A few leaks also suggest that the Dragon Ball Z collaboration will bring a brand-new Kamehameha Mythic weapon to Fortnite. While it’s unclear how this will function, it will most likely let you fire power blasts at your enemies.
It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, and this information has not been confirmed by the developers themselves. We’ll keep checking for any official announcements on what will be included in the DBZ crossover in Fortnite.
