The second batch of Fortnite alien artifacts have gone live again. These will probably follow the pattern of the weekly XP coins that we saw during Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5.
Although there is a cap on the number of alien artifacts that you can collect in a week, I'm thinking Epic Games will be lifting this cap very soon.
Where to find the alien artifacts in Fortnite?
According to data miner Hypex, there are five new locations on the map where these alien artifacts will spawn. These locations are as follows:
- South west of Coral Castle, the beach cove at the edge of the map
- In the hills north east from Pleasant Park
- South of the fields of Corny Complex
- North of Retail Row. Travel along the ridge line to spot this one.
- The lake island on the left side has an alien artifact.
Here's the map to help you pin point the locations of these alien artifacts in Fortnite.
New alien artifacts will be added each week to the map. And you can collect them at your own pace. If you're wondering about the alien artifacts from the previous week, well you can still find them.
The Week 1 alien artifact locations can be found here.
How do I get these alien artifacts in Fortnite?
Firstly you loot these small alien artifact canisters that you can find.
Secondly, there's also a golden artifact that can be found. This artifact is rumored to give around 7 alien artifacts in Fortnite.
You also stand a chance to acquire these alien artifacts from cosmic chests.
This hasn't gone live yet but we can expect it to go live with the Fortnite 17.10 update. Speaking of the 17.10 update, it's scheduled to go live next week itself. So i'd suggest that you brace yourself for a bunch of new content in Fortnite.
