Every week Fortnite is dropping a batch of alien artifacts. In Chapter 2, Season 7 players will be able to collect all the artifacts with the guide below.
What Are Alien Artifacts in Fortnite?
Fortnite’s alien artifacts are floating canisters that allow players to customize the new Battle Pass Kymera skin. They’ll unlock various facial features, skin colors, and more. Up to five artifacts spawn in different places on the island each week, hence these guides.
Note that only one person can pick up each artifact per match. Because of this, each location is usually heavily contested.
The good news is that you don’t have to collect them all right away. Apparently, alien artifacts don’t disappear once the week is up. We were able to find a few we missed a few weeks back just recently.
Fortnite Week 9 Alien Artifact Locations
Week 9 adds five more artifacts to Fortnite’s map. They all seem harder to find this go around. One is hidden behind large stones under a shack while another is perched atop an IO base satellite. Thankfully, all you have to do is touch an artifact to collect them. Just make sure you get to each location before any rival players show up.
- Alien Artifact 1 – located just northwest of Craggy Cliffs on an island
- Alien Artifact 2 – located west of Holly Hedges on a tiny island
- Alien Artifact 3 – located just east of Weeping Woods and west of Lazy Lake
- Alien Artifact 4 – located north Lazy Lake and east of Aftermath
- Alien Artifact 5 – located in a shack in Weeping Woods
Alien Artifact 1
The first alien artifact can be found on an island just northwest of Craggy Cliffs. It’s located under a raised shack with an entrance that will be blocked off by large stones. Destroy the stones to snag the artifact.
Alien Artifact 2
The second artifact is located on a tiny island exactly west of Holly Hedges. It’s in a yellow shack (the only thing on the island) in front of a TV.
Alien Artifact 3
The third artifact is a little tricky to get to. Located at an IO Base east of Weeping Woods and west of Lazy Lake, it can be found sitting on the satellite with the glowing red light. You need to either build up to it or land there after exiting the Battle Bus.
Alien Artifact 4
The fourth artifact is north of Lazy Lake inside a gas station just east of Aftermath (the giant purple spot on the map). If you follow the road heading north of the lake, turn left when coming to a dead end and you’ll run right into the station.
Alien Artifact 5
The last artifact is in a shack near the spiral staircase on the westside of Weeping Woods. Mark the staircase on your map before jumping from the Battle Bus. Land there and then search for the shack at its base. The artifact will be sitting inside.
And that’s it for Week 9’s alien artifacts. Be sure to check back here for more Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 guides!
