After making a trip to the Primal era, Fortnite has headed towards a more futuristic theme in the ongoing season, with the alien-themed storyline. There have been tons of new elements in the game ranging from UFOs to aliens and whatnot. There is still a while to go for the season to end, so it will be interesting to see what else Epic Games has in store.

Fortnite Update Hotfix v17.10 – Patch Notes (Today, July 6)


With the latest Alien invention to be discovered — Alien Nanites — you can recreate the atmosphere of their home planet. Throw one down to create a low-gravity biome that you can exit and enter. It’s as thick as gelatin (their planet’s probably super humid), so you’ll practically start swimming when you jump. To descend faster in the biome, try crouching. Also: you won’t get hurt if you jump out of one from a high place.

Even if you don’t throw one down, Alien Nanites still have a purpose. Like Nuts and Bolts, they can be used as a crafting ingredient: combine one with a Rare+ Submachine Gun to create a Kymera Ray Gun. In a blow to the IO, it can be used to craft their weapons as well: combine one with a Rare+ Assault Rifle to create a Pulse Rifle and with a Rare+ Sniper to create a Rail Gun. Alien Nanites can be found on the ground, on top of Abductors, and in the Mothership.


An Alien named Choppy and a robot called Zyg have begun wandering the Island, planting what seems to be Parasite eggs. (Benefit of the doubt: we think the robot’s just doing the bidding of the Alien). They’ve made their first stop towards the south of the Island. If you decide to hinder their plans, you can get their special Ray Gun, a more powerful version of the standard Kymera one.

What else is new in Battle Royale in v17.10 – July 6 Hotfix:


The Aliens have moved in and put up their three-toed feet at the once quiet Holly Hedges. Alien biomes have started forming around houses, new flora is sprouting to match their homeworld, and the IO’s investigation team is curious what’s going on. It’s a good location for getting your hands on Alien tech, if you don’t mind the change in ambience.
