It's week 9 in Fortnite Season 7. And a brand new week means we've got a brand new set of artifacts that we need to collect.
If you manage to get your hands on most of these artifacts, you'll be able to unlock a considerable number of styles for Kymera. Kymera is the default battle pass skin for Fortnite Season 7.
In order to unlock styles for him, you'll have to purchase the battle pass to begin with. But that doesn't matter. You can still collect the artifacts if you don't have the battle pass.
Release date and time
These alien artifacts are scheduled to go live at 3PM BST every Thursday, along with the Fortnite weekly epic challenges.
The legendary challenges go live at the same time but on a Wednesday, one day before the epic challenges go live.
Where are the alien artifacts in Fortnite week 8?
For this week, we have five locations again just like the previous week. They're as follows.
#1 Craggy Cliffs
This artifact isn't exactly at Craggy Cliffs. It's slightly north west of this POI. There is a small island in that direction.
That's exactly where you'll find the first Fortnite alien artifact. You'll find a shack here. Break the rocks below the shack, or climb up to the shack and break it down to reveal the artifact.
#2 The Aftermath
There's a huge purple hole where the Spire once stood. Towards the east, there's a small restaurant with a gas station.
That's where you'll find the next Fortnite alien artifact. You don't need to put in too much effort. Just enter the restaurant and collect your prize!
#3 Defiant Dish
It looks like the I.O. were trying to sneak away with this particular Fortnite alien artifact. Defiant Dish is located towards the south of The Aftermath.
You'll find the third alien artifact waiting here. But do be careful, there are I.O. guards lurking.
#4 Weeping Woods
There happens to be a small spiral staircase towards the west of this location. Head over to the staircase, and you'll end up spotting a shack.
That's where you will find your fourth alien artifact.
#5 Stack Shack
There's a small shack on an island towards the west of Holly Hatchery. This small island is known as Stack Shack and it's an unmarked location.
Head here for the final Fortnite week 9 alien artifact.
If you're still having trouble locating these artifacts, refer to the video above!
Interestingly enough, the Fortnite 17.30 update brought about a change in the way the notification system worked in the game. Whenever you're close to any alien artifact, you'll see a big purple exclamation mark on your minimap.
This actually makes the artifact hunt a less of a struggle.
That being said, happy artifact hunting!!
That's it for this week. See you again in seven days.
