Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 went live earlier today with unidentified flying objects, new weapons, and a new battle pass with recognizable characters from other franchises.
The alien-themed season adds UFOs, or Saucers called in-game, that will fly over the island and abduct players to bring to a random place on the island. The Saucers can be controlled by players when shot down, and comes with and abduction beam and energy cannon.
Some of the new weapons introduced in season 7 are the Kymera Ray Gun, a pulse rifle, a grenade launcher that highlights players and chests within a certain area, a rail gun that can shoot through surfaces, and more planned to come.
Additionally, players will be able to craft weapons from Fortnite’s past with the new Nuts and Bolts ingredient. For example, any assault rifle can become a burst assault rifle or any shotgun can become a lever action shotgun after crafting.
The new season also brings a new battle pass with characters such as Superman, Rick Sanchez of Rick and Morty, and a highly customizable alien. This season’s pass receives a few changes with the return of Battle Stars and the way items are unlocked. Groups of rewards are now separated by pages and each item requires a certain number of Battle Stars to unlock, which the player can receive five Battle Stars for each level up.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is now live on all platforms.
