The weekly reset in Fortnite Season 7 now always introduces new Alien Artifacts in addition to the expected weekly Epic and Legendary Quests. Alien Artifacts are a new collectible in Fortnite Season 7 and operate as a sort of currency. As players collect these futuristic, glowing canisters, they can use their contents to purchase customizable features, like head shapes and armor designs, for the Kymera Tier 1 Battle Pass skin. There are a finite number of Alien Artifacts, and once players collect the new ones each week, they can only find more after the reset.
For the last few weeks, most of the Alien Artifacts in Fortnite Season 7 have appeared at named locations around the island. During Week 6, most of the Alien Artifacts can be found at Landmarks, which are not named on the map. The Week 6 Alien Artifacts are even farther from one another than they have been in previous weeks, so unless players hijack a UFO to get around more quickly, they are unlikely to grab more than one or two per match. Here’s where to find all five new Alien Artifacts during Week 6 of Fortnite Season 7.
Every Week 6 Alien Artifact Location In Fortnite Season 7
The Fortnite Season 7 Week 6 Alien Artifacts are primarily located on islands or at coastal POIs, with the exception of the one near Corny Complex. Unlike last week, where most of the Alien Artifacts were located high off the ground and only accessible by building, only one of the Artifacts in Week 6 requires players to build structures to reach it.
Collecting Alien Artifacts, like completing weekly quests, may be easiest in Fortnite‘s Team Rumble Mode. Many players use this mode to complete challenges before starting to compete in the match, and eliminated players are often able to respawn and continue working on their quests or collections.
Players will find the Fortnite Season 7 Week 6 Alien Artifacts in the following locations:
- Under the Alien Trees on a hill in the purple patch northwest of Dirty Docks and across the river east of Steel Farm.
- In the shed at the Lockie’s Lighthouse landmark.
- Inside the entrance of the ruin on Isla Nublada, south of Flushed Factory.
- Inside the building with the telescope at Base Camp Hotel, atop the mountain southeast of Retail Row.
- In the rafters of the barn on the southwest side of Corny Complex.
Players only need to walk up to the Alien Artifact and collect it. Each canister usually contains four Alien Artifacts for a total of 20 each week. These can be collected in almost any game mode, excluding LTMs and Creative Mode.
If the Fortnite Season 7 Week 6 Alien Artifacts aren’t enough for fans, they can also always try to find a few more with teams of up to four players. When playing in Duo, Trio, or Squad modes, players can collaborate to open Fortnite Cosmic Chests. They will need to take turns smacking the weak spots on the Chest’s diamond exterior until it breaks, allowing them to open and share the goodies within. Sometimes, a number of Alien Artifacts will drop from these chests to supplement what players collect throughout the week. While not a guaranteed method, it can still be viable and help players unlock the Kymera skin customizations they want more quickly.
Fortnite is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
