UFOs are now fully interactable vehicles in Fortnite Season 7, and we’ve put together a quick guide to help you pilot one on the way to a Victory Royale!

A dramatic and spectacular live event video ended Fornite Season 6 and ushered in the much-anticipated seventh season of Epic Games’ battle royale phenomenon. We had already been teased with leaks and promotional material that aliens were on their way to Fortnite, and this has proved to be the case.

After players being abducted by aliens and teases of an alien invasion, we got all of it, and more. It’s now possible for players to commandeer an actual UFO to traverse Fortnite Island.

Where are UFOs in Fortnite Season 7?

First things first, we need to actually track down one of these mysterious new UFOs before we can pilot one in Fortnite.

Here’s what you’ll need to do:

  1. Enter into a game of Fortnite
  2. Land at one of the map’s POIs that is flashing purple
  3. Head to one of the UFOs flying above
  4. Your best bet is to let it abduct you, and as you’re being carted away, shoot at where it says “Trespasser” as the pilot will be around there
  5. Keep shooting the pilot until the UFO falls to the ground
  6. Shoot the pilot that’s jumped out of the ship until they are dead
  7. Hop into the ship

Now that you’ve been able to get a hold of the pesky alien’s ship, it’s time to go and have some fun around Fortnite Island.

As with everything nice in the world, the UFO does come with some drawbacks. Firstly, the UFO operates on a battery, meaning you only have a limited amount of time with the ship. Secondly, as with any other vehicle or ridable, the UFO is susceptible to damage, so receive enough damage and your UFO will be destroyed.

Here’s how you can drive a UFO, using console controls:

  • Left Trigger / L2: Descend
  • Right Trigger / L2: Ascend
  • Left button / L1: Activates the tractor beam
  • Right Button / R1: Fires beam gun
  • B / Circle: Boost
  • Right Stick: Switch Seat
  • X / Square: Exit

Now that we have possession of a UFO and also know the controls to operate our flying friend, it’s time to shed some light on the inner workings of the UFO.

These are vital details you need to know before flying a UFO:

  • There are 9 total UFOs
  • The UFO has 600 health
  • You can reboot an ally using a UFO and it takes 10 seconds
  • An exploding UFO will cause 70 damage to players and will do 500 damage to builds
  • Each UFO has two lives, once a UFO is downed, it will regenerate its health until its lives are gone
  • The tractor beam can suck up vehicles, building parts, NPCs, and players, but you can be shot doing this

And there you go, a handy to getting yourself a UFO, and how to use Fortnite Season 7’s big, shiny new toy.

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 is a new weapon that you can unlock in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3, and we’ll go over its location on the map as well as how to use it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 3 features a plethora of fun content for players to unlock, including cosmetic skins of popular characters like Indiana Jones as well as powerful weapons like Darth Vader’s Lightsaber.

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.
