Fortnite concepts can be found a dime a dozen all over Reddit and social media, but sometimes one emerges that stands out above all others.

This is referring to the recent project completed by the artist known online as ‘Ryai,’ who has created a series of Fortnite concept skins themed after the popular Japanese anime television series Dragon Ball Z.

The concept Ryai has presented, called Universe Warrior, features three Dragon Ball Z themed outfit skins, all of which have their own unique properties. 

While the skill with which they’ve been drawn is commendable in its own right, the more impressive aspect of this concept is the fact that these skins are dynamic and change shape after a player using them gets a certain number of eliminations in-game.

According to the image, once a player gets four eliminations, their in-game character goes into a mode called ‘Super Saiyan,’ which involves a considerable change in its appearance.

For those who are unfamiliar with DBZ terminology, Super Saiyan refers to an advanced transformation that certain characters in the series assumed to achieve great power.

The different Super Saiyan forms shown in the concept reflects the fact that characters in DBZ could reach different levels of the form, some stronger than others.

While some of the forms in the image theoretically outweigh the others, these changes are purely cosmetic and would simply depend on which character skin the player chooses to equip.

Not to be forgotten, the Nimbus Axe pickaxe is also very symbolic, since it combines the legendary Flying Nimbus cloud with the equally iconic Power Pole, both staples within the DBZ lore.

This Dragon Ball Z concept caught the eye of prominent Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, who expressed strong admiration for the work in his tweet.

He even tagged the official English and Japanese Fortnite Twitter pages, and remarked that he “would pay $100 for these skins MINIMUM,” should the concept become reality.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.

To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.
