On 16th November, Epic Games finally unleashed the long-awaited Naruto x Fortnite collaboration featuring a tonne of cosmetics (via Item Shop bundles) and bringing beloved characters from the Naruto Shippuden anime series/manga to the island. With the Fortnite v18.40 update, expected to be the last major patch before the end of Chapter 2 Season 8 (6th December) also comes a new weapon for players to use, in the form of the Paper Bomb Kunai!
As the battle against the Cube Queen rages on, and The Convergence has turned into a pyramid, you might want to get your hands on the Paper Bomb Kunai. We've got you covered with a step-by-step guide, which includes the throwable weapon's stats, and where to find the important Kakashi Hatake NPC.
How to get Paper Bomb Kunai and stats
The Paper Bomb Kunai is a Mythic rarity throwing weapon released with the Fortnite v18.40 update.
It explodes on impact and homes in on enemies, not to mention it can also stick to walls, making this new weapon quite powerful.
As you can see from the stats above, the Paper Bomb Kunai can stack up to six times. This means you can only have three in your inventory at a time.
Players can get a Paper Bomb Kunai by opening chests in Fortnite and trying their luck.
If you don't feel that luck is on your side, or you are just tired of opening chests without finding a Paper Bomb Kunai to use, then you can also purchase one from a brand-new NPC.
Kakashi Hatake NPC location in Fortnite
Kakashi Hatake is a new NPC on the Fortnite island which players can visit to purchase a Paper Bomb Kunai (stack of three) for 150 Gold Bars.
For those who don't follow the anime, Kakashi Hatake is the leader of Team 7 (later team Kakashi), a beloved and recurring character.
In any case, check out the location marked on the map below to find Kakashi Hatake with ease.
As you can see, the Kakashi Hatake NPC is located on a hill west of Lazy Lake in Fortnite. We do expect players to run into resistance at the start of Fortnite v18.40 since everyone will want to get their hands on the Paper Bomb Kunai weapon.
Hopefully, this step-by-step guide will help players not only understand the Paper Bomb Kunai in Fortnite, but also make it easy to get their hands on one, be it via opening chests, or heading towards Kakashi Hatake's location on the map to spend some gold bars.
