Where To Find Abductors In Fortnite

Abductors are one of the newer entrants in Fortnite Season 7. These abductors are a portal into the Mothership itself.

When they're not actively transporting anyone into the Mothership, these abductors form a vortex of air that sucks loopers up into the sky.

Once you're on top of the abductor, you can either glide your way out of it, or you can just break stuff on top of these abductors.

But the question is, where do you find these abductors in Fortnite?

If you don't know how abductors look, don't worry. When you see the map, you'll notice huge UFO like objects flying in the sky.

These circular objects are known as abductors. At any given time, there are approximately three abductors on the map.

The funny part about these abductors is that they will always spawn close to named locations. Over the course of Fortnite Season 7, no abductor has spawned near any unnamed location.

That being said, these abductors tend to disappear as well. They disappeared once before the Fortnite 17.20 update, only to make a return after the update.

When it comes to these Fortnite abductor locations, you could come across one at the Aftermath itself. This point is right in the centre of the map.

In order to complete a particular Fortnite Season 7 week 10 challenge, you will have to visit an abductor. Now, I'm not sure if visiting an abductor from the ground would work.

It would be best if you jump out of the battle bus and glide your way to one of these machines directly. That way you'd be visiting an abductor.

And you'll manage to get your hands on some alien tech weapons that seem to be littered on top of these abductors.

The abductors have been currently disabled in Fortnite, and will be back at a later date. We'll update this piece once they return.
