Getting abducted by aliens seems to be a new thing that can happen to you in Fortnite. UFOs are dropping in from the skies, seemingly at random, and beaming players aboard, only to later drop them at a random point of the map. While the arrival of the grays does seem to be random, there does seem to be a way to improve your odds. That’s what we’ll be showing you in our Fortnite How to Get Abducted by Aliens guide.
How to Get Abducted by Aliens in Fortnite
To get abducted by Aliens in Fortnite, the easiest way appears to be to jump into a solo game and head straight for Risky Reels. That seems to be where the aliens congregate most often, although they have been appearing all across the map. Once you’re in Risky Reels, you just have to wait for the UFO to pick you up. You can keep waiting even after the storm rolls in; actually, that might be your best bet. The storm will chase other players away, reducing the odds of your skull meeting a stray bullet.
If the UFO does end up beaming you in, it will then drop you off at a random spot on the map with a full health and armor bar (reportedly, we haven’t had the time to check). But, even if they just plop you somewhere with no bonuses, you’d still have the bragging rights of having hitched a ride on a flying saucer. That’s how to get abducted by aliens in Fortnite – head to Risky Reels and wait for it to happen. It might, it might not; keep trying if at first you don’t succeed.
The UFOs in Fortnite seem to be some kind of intro for the upcoming seventh season of Chapter 2. We’ll see what the appearance of aliens means for the game’s metaverse. In the grand scheme of things, the grays are really not even that big of a deal, considering that we’ve already had Thanos and the Avengers cause mayhem across the island.
