A mysterious alien army invades the island – after starting with an explosive strike. Under Dr Slone’s leadership, the Imagined Order (IO) has decided to strike back, but his selflessness is called into question.
No matter who you trust, technology from both sides is at your fingertips. Thanks to data provided by a certain “Hot Saucers”, we’re here to give you a taste of what you can find on the island in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7: Invasion!
Inventions of aliens and IO
Most commonly known as “UFOs”, saucers are in the sky over some POIs during every match. Shoot one down to become the pilot, then use it to attack and kidnap. What to kill him with? This season introduces new high-tech weapons that you can take advantage of.
Created by the IO, take the Pulse Rifle for a versatile weapon that will rarely let you down. Rumor has it that Doctor Slone has a special version just for herself, so you’ll have to go head-to-head with her to call her your own.
The pulse rifle. The IO is very proud of this article.
The IO also invented the Rail Gun, which allows you to shoot beyond surfaces. Don’t be too complacent, though: the Rail Gun has a targeting beam that will make your presence known. Unsurprisingly coming from the IO, it happens that it does additional damage against the saucers.
With the Rail Gun physics challenge, some find it surprising that it is not of extraterrestrial origin.
While not a weapon per se, the IO also invented the Pulse Scanner. This device shoots reconnaissance bolts, marking all opponents (and chests) in their diameter.
Aliens also have their own devices. With the Kymera Ray Gun, shoot a continuous beam and only stop to reload. It doesn’t do much damage against structures or saucers (so it might not be the best choice if you’re trying to take one down!), But it’s powerful against opponents.
The temperature of the beam of the Kymera Ray Gun is the same as that of molten lava.
IO researchers believe the aliens are working on even more technology, such as a weapon capable of moving objects and a device that can disguise the possessor.
The Battle Pass for Chapter 2 of Season 7
For the cosmic occasion, the Battle Stars are back in the Battle Pass! This season they are operating in a new way. Collect Battle Stars as you level up, then use those Stars to claim rewards in any order you like. By claiming rewards or reaching certain levels, you will unlock additional pages of rewards to claim.
Do you want to claim the Abduction Contrail on page 1 right away? No problem! Want to save your battle beginnings to claim multiple rewards at once? You can do this too!
The Battle Pass features new pickaxes, emotes, unlockable Back Blings, and more. Most pages offer a special reward, which becomes available after all other rewards on the page are claimed. Examples include the Alien Sympathizing Sunny and synthetic artist Guggimon. Below, we’ll go over the outfits you can unlock in this season’s Battle Pass!
● Kymera: The customizable alien. Make it yours all season long! (Unlocked immediately after obtaining the Battle Pass.)
● Sunny: The rockstar who wants to get out of this rock.
● Guggimon: Fashion horror artist. A little in chaos.
● Joey: Double agent. Unlock their built-in emote to switch between Human and Alien.
● Zyg: Fierce battledroid made by the mind-controlling Alien Choppy. Put Choppy on as a Back Bling!
● Doctor Slone: The one and only.
● Rick sanchez: Intergalactic traveler and the Rickest Rick.
● Superman: Little better to help save the day. Arriving later in the season for players to unlock.
Now that you have all the basic information, you are more than ready to fend for yourself during the fight for the island. As the conflict between the aliens and IO continues to escalate, they will introduce new technology into the mix. Take these weapons and items to your advantage.
