How to get Fortnite Alien Nanites

Alien Nanites are a new item for Fortnite Season 7 that allows you to upgrade weapons and change the world around you, so here’s everything we know about them.

A new season of Fortnite means brand new weird and wonderful items that coincide with the season’s theme. Season 7’s Alien theme has brought sci-fi weapons and Alien Parasites to the mix, and the 17.20 update has brought more changes.

Alien ground troops have begun mobilizing on the Island, and they’ve brought an aspect of their own home planet with them in the form of extra-terrestrial tech known as Alien Nanites.

Here’s everything we know about them in Fortnite Season 7.

According to an official post from Epic Games, Fortnite Alien Nanites allow you to recreate the atmosphere of the Aliens’ home planet. Simply throw one down to create a low-gravity biome that you can exit and enter.

These Biomes are low-gravity zones that were previously leaked for Season 7. You can carry two of these at a time, and they’re “as thick as gelatin.” You’ll be able to descend faster in the biome by crouching.

One major benefit is that you won’t get hurt if you jump out of one from a high place. However, they also have another game-changing function.

Similar to crafting materials from Season 6, Fortnite Alien Nanites can upgrade your weapons. You’ll be able to collect them from the ground, on top of Abductors, and in the Mothership.

You can combine them with weapons to gain some cool alien tech like the Kymera Ray Gun. They can also be used to craft IO weapons.

The Alien Nanite upgrades are as follows:

  • Rare + Assault Rifles > Pulse Rifle
  • Rare + Submachine Guns > Kymera Ray Gun
  • Rare + Snipers > Rail Gun

Once you have found a rare, legendary, or epic weapon, you will find an icon hovering over it in your item bar in the bottom right corner of your screen. A similar icon will be hovering over your Alien Nanite in your item bar.

Head to the crafting section of your inventory menu and press the craft button when hovering over the weapon you like to upgrade. This will use the Alien Nanite to craft a weapon and allow you to complete one of the Season 7 Week 12 quests.

That covers everything we know about the Fortnite Alien Nanites. It seems that Epic Games have huge plans for Season 7, as it’s also rumored that LeBron James will be arriving as an Icon Series skin.

Fortnite leak claims skateboards coming soon as new movement mechanic

A new leak has emerged, suggesting that Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 will add a skateboard and skating mechanic.

According to new Fortnite leaks, Epic Games are planning to add skating mechanics and a new skateboard vehicle in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3.

Epic Games brought plenty of new content for players to explore in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, including the addition of the Indiana Jones cosmetic skin and new mechanics such as Runaway Boulders.

The developers always keep the game fresh with new content, and a new leak suggests that they’re currently working on a new mechanic and vehicle that will be introduced in Chapter 3, Season 3.

Fortnite character sliding

Notable Fortnite leaker ‘HYPEX’ claims that Epic Games are developing new skating mechanics that will make way for the addition of skateboards or roller skates in the battle royale title.

The leaker stated that this new mechanic will be similar to the in-game sliding, as you’ll be slower when going uphill and faster coming down. If this leak is accurate, then players will have a new way to get around the map.

Another leaker with the name ‘InTheShade’ tweeted a gameplay video showcasing this new mechanic in action. While the video is obviously just a rough test, it shows the Fortnite player sliding across the map without crouching.

The character also moves faster when going downhill and is able to kick the board to pick up some speed. Moreover, it seems like jumping from heights with a skateboard will allow you to avoid heavy fall damage.

At the time of writing, it’s unclear if this mechanic will actually make its way into Fortnite, as this information is based purely on leaks. We’ll need to wait for Epic Games to confirm whether or not players will be able to skate in the game.

The developers have added skating-themed summer cosmetics in the Item Shop before, so it would make sense for them to add skateboards as well as a new POI that resembles a skate park.

The Ripsaw Launcher can be found at a factory that’s located northeast of Logjam Lotus on the north end of the Fortnite map. Go inside the factory and the weapon will be hanging on a wall, just waiting to be collected.

Once you’ve gotten your hands on the weapon, you can use it to shoot a blade that is capable of shredding through builds, dealing 25 damage to buildings, 60 to players, and 100 to vehicles.

The launchers can hold up to 10 blades, and these continue to dish out damage for a total of 10 seconds when fully charged. You can charge it by simply holding the ‘shoot’ button for three seconds.

Ripsaw Launcher location in Fortnite

Since the Ripsaw Launcher is currently only found at one location, you might encounter heavy opposition from enemy players after arriving there, so we recommend collecting high-tier weapons and healing items before you go.

Once you acquire the weapon, you can also use it in combination with some of the other Chapter 3, Season 3 additions like the Grapple Glove to swing around the map and destroy enemy builds.
