How to enter the Mothership in Fortnite Season 7

Fortnite players can finally enter the Mothership that’s been floating above the Island since Season 7 first launched. Here’s how you can go inside to discover what it contains.

The Fortnite Season 7 update has brought a plethora of content for you to enjoy, including a brand-new Battle Pass. There is also an alien invasion that has brought parasites to the Island.

The Mothership above Fortnite Island was initially sealed so that players couldn’t enter, but that has changed after the v17.10 update. You can now go inside the new POI and collect some neat loot for yourself.

You can only board the Mothership in Fortnite by being captured by new kinds of UFOs known as Abductors. These are bigger than the other UFOs around the map, and you can’t fly them yourself.

Here’s what you need to do to get abducted and enter the Mothership:

  1. Search for UFO icons on the map at the start of a match.
  2. Make your way towards one of these ‘Abductors.’
  3. Stand underneath it until the beam of light gets to you.
  4. Run around until it will abduct you into the Mothership.

You can also land on top of the Abductor UFOs to collect chests and weapons before gliding to the Island below.

Once you’re inside the Mothership, you’ll be given a jetpack and an ‘experiment’ will begin. You’ll need to collect orbs in order to earn high-tier loot. However, you’ll have a limited time to explore this environment.

While you’ll temporarily lose any weapons that you’ve already collected, the game will provide you with a space gun that can send your opponents flying without taking them out.

Just keep an eye out for where the orbs will land and head there before other players have the chance. Using your jetpack to double jump will be of great help, and timer orbs will give you more time to collect more orbs.

After your time is up, you’ll be sent to a loot room to claim your rewards. The quality of the loot is determined by the amount of orbs you’ve collected, and getting all five stars will grant you some Legendary weapons.
