Balloons can be found from ground loot as well as in chests easily around the Battle Royale map, where they look just like a small packet of balloons. Moreover, you can activate the Jump Balloon Reality Augment to gain Balloons every time you jump, until you reach the max number of Balloons.

Firstly, choose your Balloon in your inventory and then hold your right trigger or left mouse click to attach and use your Balloon. You can also repeat this step to add up to three balloons at one time, with each balloon being added increasing your jump height and duration as you float in the air.

However, worth noting is that Balloons aren’t invincible and will therefore pop if the player floats too high or if they are shot by another player.

Alternatively, to simply detach your balloons and stop using them, you would just need to press and hold down your right stick on your controller, or press Ctrl key on your keyboard.
