UFOs are the latest vehicles to be added to Fortnite, and they way players find them are a bit different than cars and boats. Here is how to find UFOs in Fortnite.
At the end of Season 6, players randomly started to get abducted by unseen UFOs. A quick beam of light detached from any visible spaceship would teleport players to a different location. These instances, paired with various ARG puzzles, confirmed that aliens would be invading Season 7.
When the trailers for Fortnite Season 7 dropped, one of the first things that players noticed were the drivable UFOs. The mysterious flying saucers that had ben abducting players could now be seen flying around the map. Not only were the visible, but players could hijack them and start abducting players themselves.
Fortnite Season 7 UFO locations
To find UFOs in Fortnite, players will have to use their maps to locate invaded POIs. Unlike cars and boats, UFOs don’t spawn in the same place every round. Instead, aliens will invade three random POIs that will change every time a player drops in to a round of Fortnite.
Players will need to open their maps to see which POIs have been invaded. As seen on the map below, the invaded POIs will have purple names instead of white. This means three UFOs will be circling this location in search of players to abduct. This also means, players won’t find any UFOs lying on the ground waiting to be taken.
To pilot a UFO, players will need to shoot one out of the sky, or kill the alien piloting it. Each UFO has three lives, and shooting one out of the sky will take one of them. When a UFO runs out of health, it will need to land and recharge. While it is recharging, players can make their way to the crash site, eliminate the alien, and steal the UFO.
UFOs can boost, shoot lasers, and pick up objects with a tractor beam. It also has a battery that will need to be recharged if used for an extended period of time. However, UFOs have a very small amount of health which makes them easy to take down. Even with three lives, UFOs are glass canons.
