UFOs are the newest drivable vehicle to arrive in Fortnite Chapter 2. The aliens that invaded the island in Season 7 brought the spaceships with them and players can now ride around the map in a hovering saucer. Additionally, these UFOs also give players the ability to beam others up, and shoot lasers at them as well.

As they’re one of the newest additions in Fortnite, almost every player wants to get their hands on a UFO. However, their location isn’t easily outlined on the map. Luckily, there’s one surefire way to ensure that players head to a spot that holds one of these flying saucers.

Where to find UFOs in Fortnite Season 7

To drive the new vehicles, players must first find them. While this may seem difficult, there’s a foolproof method in which to find a UFO. Players must look at the map while still flying on the battle bus. If a POI’s name glows purple, that location holds one of the vehicles.

At these locations, there will be three UFOs flying around in the sky. Players must target one and shoot at it. A rifle of some kind is the best option, as the vehicle is high in the sky. However, any medium-range weapon will work.

After some damage, the UFO will fall to the ground and players can then approach and interact with it. They must be warned, though, that the alien who had been commanding the vehicle will attempt to attack.

Once players are in control of the UFO, they are free to fly around the map as they please. The controls are outlined depending on the player’s system. When it comes to abducting, players can pick up pretty much anything on the map, with the exception of buildings. This includes players, vehicles and other small objects.

Along with abducting, players can shoot at other players or UFOs with a laser beam. This deals damage but has a cooldown, as does the abducting beam. Of course, players need to be accurate if they want to be successful with either command.

The UFOs are one of the biggest additions in Fortnite Season 7 and should provide a ton of enjoyment moving forward.
