Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7: Every new weapon and where to find them


Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 kicked off earlier today, and the update introduces a lot of new content in the game. The aliens have finally arrived, and players will find a giant aircraft carrier hovering over the island.

Many small rideable UFOs can be found on the island which players can use to navigate around the map. They can also lift and drop things at will.

Of all the main additions to the game, the most interesting are the new weapons. There are four new weapons added to Fortnite that match this season's alien theme. Here's a quick look at all the new weapons in the Fortnite v17.00 update.
