Banana of the Gods in Fortnite: Where to find and what it does

Here is everything you need to know about Fortnite’s newest banana item!

The Fortnite v29.10 update dropped early this morning after an overnight downtime period. Upon release, players learned of a new Fortnite item called "Banana of the Gods." This new healing resource plays into a running gag in Chapter 5 Season 2, explaining that the "Gods" of this season prefer bananas over other food items. Today, we will explain what this golden banana does and where you can find it.

Where is the Banana of the Gods in Fortnite?

This item comes in only the "Legendary" rarity, and it took us quite some time to find it. After loading into a Team Rumble match, we navigated to the Snooty Steppes location. There are plenty of Chests and Produce Boxes at this point of interest (POI), so it was a reasonable place to start. We looted most of Snooty Steppes before ultimately finding the Banana of the Gods in regular Fortnite Chest.

The drop rate is unclear, considering it just entered the loot pool, but it took us eight to ten minutes to find it. The Banana of the Gods drops in stacks of one, and you can only consume it once.

What does the new consumable item do in Fortnite?

Upon consuming the Banana of the Gods in a Fortnite match, you will experience quicker sprint speed and low-gravity jumps. This aspect is helpful when trying to evade or push an enemy to eliminate them. Additionally, this consumable will restore your Health over time, so it's perfect for situations where you are stuck in the Storm or just low on HP.

Overall, it's a fun addition to Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, and plays into the season's ongoing storyline. Although you may have trouble finding it, as it seems rare, the Banana of the Gods is worth carrying in your inventory.
