Fortnite Season 7 has brought an alien invasion to the battle royale. Parasites will soon start popping up to cause havoc across the Island. Here’s how you can deal with these Fortnite Alien Parasites.
There’s a plethora of new content in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, including various map changes, new skins, and a new Battle Pass to progress through. The main theme of the new season is marked by an alien invasion.
This attack from outer space will also bring a host of Fortnite Alien Parasites to the Island. These creatures actually grant you some neat perks, but they can also be a hindrance.
Here’s what they do and how you can deal with them.
How to get rid of Alien Parasites in Fortnite
Alien Parasites are upcoming tiny creatures that will often appear in large swarms. You’ll initially find them inside of green eggs across Fortnite Island, and getting close will cause them to hatch and grab your head.

If you’ve seen any of the Alien movies, then you can already picture how these Fortnite Alien Parasites work. They will attach themselves to your face and refuse to let go. Luckily, you’ll still be in full control of your character when this happens.
There are currently only three known ways of removing the alien creature:
- Jumping in some water
- Walking through fire
- Entering a prop
There’s a definite benefit to having these creatures attach themselves to you. They will provide you with “enhanced mobility,” letting you move a bit faster. However, you’ll start losing some of your health to the little critter.
You might be in trouble if there’s no water near your current location on the map. We recommend finding a vehicle or starting a fire in those scenarios before trying to remove the Fortnite Alien Parasites from your face.
How do Alien Parasites work in Fortnite Season 7?
Thanks to some notable Fortnite data miners, we now know a bit more about what these Parasites do, and how they’ll affect gameplay:
- Each parasite has 75 health, while their eggs have 60 health.
- You can find these critters in green eggs across the map.
- The eggs will only hatch when you’re in close proximity.
- You’ll get a warning before they attach to you.
- You can pick up and throw them.
While there’s no current release date for when the Alien Parasites will arrive on the Battle Royale map, early rumors suggest that they will be all across different locations on Fortnite Island.
You’ll be able to find their green eggs in the new purple mutated zones. These eggs will appear in large clusters, so you shouldn’t face too much trouble locating them.

How to defeat Riot for Fortnite Season 7 Week 7 Quest
Here’s how you can quickly complete the Fortnite Week 7 Epic Quest to find and defeat the NPC Riot which will grant you some exciting rewards.
There are brand-new challenges to complete in Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7, and one of the Epic Quests requires you to defeat the NPC Riot. Here’s how you can find him and get this done.
One Epic Quest has you search for a Fortnite NPC Riot and then defeat him in battle. This character will put up a fight, so this guide will provide his location along with some tips for defeating him.
Where to find Riot in Fortnite Season 7
There are various NPCs scattered across Fortnite Island, and each one serves a different purpose, such as selling weapons or protecting the player. Riot will fire at you on sight, so be ready for a battle.
You can find this NPC on the west side of the Yellow Steel Bridge between Misty Meadow and Catty Corner. Make sure you collect some solid weapons and gear before going to battle against Fortnite Riot, as he will be hostile.
We’ve marked this location on the map below.
Simply take cover as much as possible by building structures or using your surroundings. Once he stops firing at you, you can take your opportunity to shoot him down. Luckily, he isn’t too difficult to bring down.
We recommend keeping a few shield potions on you just in case since the aim of Fortnite Riot is deadly. Once he’s down, you’ll be able to loot him for gear, and the game will reward you with 30,000 XP, so it is definitely worth it to take the time to find Fortnite Riot and defeat the NPC.

Week 7 of Fortnite Season 7 is here, and there are brand-new weekly challenges for you to complete so that you can earn XP and Battle Stars. These include tasks like stoking campfires and constructing Wooden Hatcheries.
One of this week’s Legendary Quests tasks you with finding and marking an Alien Egg. These aren’t found all over the map, so this guide will help you out by letting you know where to look.
Alien Egg locations in Fortnite Season 7
After the Alien invasion arrived, many changes came to Fortnite Island. Holly Hedges has been changed to Holly Hatchery, and it’s the area that you’ll need to visit for this Legendary Quest.
This location has changed into a farm for Alien Eggs in Season 7, and there’s a low gravity biome in the area. Head over there, and look for little green orbs that are sprouting out of the ground.
You can also check the southwest portion of the purple crater in the center of the map.
You only need to mark one Alien Egg so make your way to either one of these locations. After you come across one, you can mark it by pinging its location on your map. So use the mouse scroll, or the left D-pad button.
Once that’s done, you’ll earn a total of 30,000 XP. You can also complete the rest of the weekly challenges to earn some extra XP and Battle Stars.

More NPCs are expected to be added over the course of the season, so we’ll update this article with any new character and their location.
As Fortnite Season 7 progresses, you’ll probably be tasked with finding several of these NPCs to complete the weekly challenges on offer. So it’s well worth studying up and learning their locations to give you the edge in completing these.
