Now then Fortnite Chapter 2, season 7 is here, players will have tons of new things to do, thanks to a series of additional content added by Epic Games. This section is alien-themed, and coincidentally with that, you’ll need to purchase Alien Artifacts, which act as a form of currency that can be used to customize Kymera aliens your. These Alien Artifacts are not easy to find, although there are several methods you can use to obtain them.
What are Alien Artifacts?
The newly added Alien Artifacts is a new form of currency used to purchase cosmetics for the Kymera alien skin. After purchasing battle cards, players gain access to the customizable Kymera aliens, but the only way to get more style is to purchase them with Alien Artifacts. Most of the lower end options are inexpensive at around two or three Alien Artifacts, but if you take a quick look at the options you’ll notice it can cost a lot to get all the styles you want.
Higher tier styles cost around 17 Alien Artifacts, so if those are the ones you want, you’ll need to start working to earn more. Below, we will learn some methods to earn Alien Artifacts in Fortnite.
Alien Artifacts Map
There are two ways for you to get Alien Artifacts. The simplest way is to go to specific, fixed locations around the map to collect them. Using the map above (thanks, Fortnite.gg) you can see all five locations around the map. Each grants you four, so if you collect them all, you’ll have 20 in total. Remember that once you collect one, it will scorn, so you can only take one of each. times. Possibly more will appear periodically to keep players in reserve.
Here’s where to look specifically for each.
First Alien Artifact Location: Northeast of Believer . Beach
You can collect them in any order, but start with the Alien Artifact location northeast of Believer Beach. You can find this on the steps of the spire, about halfway up. The tower is close to the shore.
Second Alien Artifact Location: West Weeping Woods
Next, go to the restaurant on the west side of Weeping Woods. The Alien artifact is under the roof outside with stacks of wood.
Location of Third Alien Artifact: Map Center
This is the easiest one to find. It’s right in the middle of the map, floating on the water. This is the purple area that used to be The Spire in season 6.
Fourth Alien Artifact Location: North of the Corny . Complex
Next, you can head to the northern area of the Corny Complex near a clump of trees. Alien artifact was found near a house.
Fifth Alien Artifact Location: Catty Corner
Finally, the final point is at Catty Corner, on the west side on a platform. It’s north of the gas station.
There is another way for you to get the Alien Artifact, although it is less reliable. You can collect Alien’s Artifacts from the Universe Chest, which randomly appear all over his map and only appear in Duos, Trios, and Squads (they don’t appear in Solos) . When the Cosmic Chest appears, you and your party must attack the weak points with your harvesting tools to open it. Currently, there doesn’t seem to be much rhyme or reason to get them to spawn.
For this reason, we recommend landing on the small island south of Catty Corner to get the UFO and use it to fly around the area until you find the UFO. Notice a glowing purple orb with a chest inside. Since Space Chests are very small and difficult to detect, we recommend staying closer to the ground, which will make them easier to spot. When you find one, land next to it and hit the weak points until it explodes. Please note that it takes several hits to explode, so try to do this with the whole team if possible.
You have a chance to get a random number of Alien Artifacts using this method, from two to nine. The cool thing about this method is that you can continuously use it to collect Alien Artifacts, assuming you can find a Cosmic Chest.
