Fans of the hit battle royale game Fortnite are used to some pretty wild updates and changes, but the recently unveiled Season 7 has shaken things up more than ever with the introduction of aliens. Indeed, this new variable on the battleground sees players navigating all-new challenges and obstacles and nabbing some pretty cool achievements at the end of it all.
One of these in-game achievements is the ability to find alien artifacts, which have been strewn all over the map ever since the season began. So, where exactly are the artifacts, and how do you go about collecting them? Keep reading to find out!
Here is where you can find the alien artifacts in 'Fortnite.'
It may seem a bit daunting to navigate the entire Fortnite map searching for a series of small artifacts, but luckily we have a comprehensive list of where they can be found. The first thing a prospective artifact hunter needs to know is that the artifact itself is a small purple vial that floats.
Collecting one vial will award a player four alien artifact points, and once a vial is picked up from a location, it will no longer spawn there. During the coming weeks, while the challenge is going on, the vials will likely shift locations, so watch this space while we update this piece with changes. Remember, you only have one week to collect them all before the locations change.
For week three, all of the rumored locations have been shared by data miners, though it's possible these aren't the confirmed final locations. The first place you can find a vial is at Craggy Cliffs, located on the east side of the beach.
Next, you'll want to go to Boney Burbs, where you'll find it in the upper left corner, in the main complex. The third alien artifact is inside the factory in the Slurpy Swamp, below the bridge.
The last alien artifact for week three will take you all the way to Coral Castle. You'll want to venture into the largest building in the center of this area and make your way up to the second floor of the building. There, you'll find the last alien artifact for the week's challenges.
These should be fairly straightforward to find when they launch on Thursday, June 24, though note the locations might shift slightly depending on what the developers officially roll out.
If you're considering passing on this week's challenges, we recommend you reconsider. These weekly challenges, while sometimes a bit tedious, are a crucial way to earn more XP and quickly — which is the key if you're looking to hit Level 100 before the end of the season. Those who advance to the maximum level this season will win an exclusive Rick and Morty outfit, only available for a limited time.
Watch this space for the latest Fortnite updates, including more locations of the alien artifacts.
