What Are Klombos in Fortnite?
By Jack O'Dwyer
Fortnite players have discovered a new, large, reptilian friend wandering Fortnite Island: Klombos!
Epic Games has thrown players yet another wild curveball in the form of new wildlife gracing the flipped Fortnite Island in Chapter 3, Season 1. These familiar-looking, friend-shaped beasts have been spotted roaming the wild where players have the choice to present themselves as friend or foe.
Below, we've explained everything we've been able to glean from studying these majestic animals in their natural habitat.
Klombos in Fortnite Explained
Klombos are unique, reptilian-dinosaur creatures with wide skulls, broad, flat faces, round eyes, and a severe underbite that shows off a row of sharp shark-like fangs. They sport sections of large, multicolored scales that point backward from where their heads meet their necks. Their bodies are stout with six short legs with three clawed toes on each one. Their tails come to a point at the end but do not have any sort of additional features. Two small rows of spikes run down their backs on either side of their dorsal line—much like a standard crocodile.
Color-wise, Klombos have deeply saturated jewel-toned scales with lighter pigmentation along their jaws, underbellies, and tails. They have been known to change color when presented with food—similar to a chameleon. Additionally, some have recalled the creatures displaying canine behavior characteristics.
Upon being fed, Klombos will violently sneeze and propel a piece of loot up into the air from a blowhole located directly on the top of their heads. Players will have to climb up onto the head to get the loot.
Klomobos become enraged when attacked and are extremely difficult to take down. Their scales are thick and most weapons will only slightly injure them—doing one damage per hit. When angered, they turn a deep crimson red, and their head scales, eyes, and back spikes glow a fiery orange. They will relentlessly charge the target of their aggression until the threat has been neutralized.
For your safety, we definitely don't recommend firing on the otherwise friendly wildlife.
