Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 is now live and as many had expected, there's a plethora of new in-game content on offer.
Apart from the usual new skins and map changes, Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 has also introduced a brand new chest. The Cosmic Chest is definitely a part of the Alien Invasion theme of the current season.
However, finding these chests as well as opening them can be a little tricky during the early days of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.
How to unlock the Cosmic Chest
According to information revealed by notable Fortnite data miner Hypex, opening/unlocking a Cosmic Chest is a fairly tricky task in Fortnite.
The Cosmic Chest's appearance clearly gives away the fact that the chest is encased inside a cosmic covering. Hypex has confirmed that players will need to smash the cosmic cover before they can unlock the Cosmic Chest. According to Hypex, this protective covering has several weak spots. Smashing into these weak spots will eventually result in the cosmic cover wearing off.
Additionally, Hypex has also revealed that the Cosmic Chest can only be activated when an entire squad is present in the vicinity. This means that if a player runs into a Cosmic Chest in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, they will need their entire squad to be present at the location in order to activate the chest.
Where to find Cosmic Chests
Cosmic Chests can be found at random locations across the island. However, players should note that finding a Cosmic Chest won't be enough to unlock it as they will require their entire squad to be present in the vicinity.
What do Cosmic Chests contain?
The Cosmic Chests that were introduced in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 contain special Alien Artifacts. These Alien Artifacts are an integral part of the new season as it allows players to transform and customize the Fortnite Season 7 Alien skin, Kymera.
Given that there are almost 800,000 combinations for the Kymera skin, players can unlock as many Cosmic Chests as they can find to modify the Season 7 Alien skin to their heart's content.
