Fortnite Alien Artifacts

When Season 7 of Fortnite Chapter 2 arrived at the beginning of June, there was plenty of new content for players to discover. One of the most important changes in the season was the introduction of a new gameplay feature known as Alien Artifacts.


These are collectable items that can be found scattered around the Fortnite Battle Royale island. A total of 5 Artifacts arrive on the island each week for players to locate and collect.

These Alien Artifacts can then be used as a form of alien currency to unlock new styles and variations for the Kymera Outfit. This is a brand new skin introduced in the Season 7 Battle Pass.
