We’re now going from the Stone Age to the future in Fortnite Season 7: Invasion. There are aliens with UFOs, more super heroes, and even a Rick and Morty crossover. On top of that, there’s another long list of gameplay changes meant to spice things up for another couple months of play. This season is particularly interesting due to the mix of new content and classic weapons/mechanics. Thanks to the new content alongside the return of launch pads, snipers, and other previously popular weapons, what’s old is new again.
While this season didn’t feature as much narrative content to go along with the alien invasion, there is still a quick trailer to watch. However, once you jump into the game, you’ll quickly realize how confusing Fortnite Season 7: Invasion is upon landing for the first time. You see, all of the content in the trailer isn’t immediately obvious.
Epic’s patch notes are also a bit shaky right now at best. Perhaps this season is all about discovering the unknown. That doesn’t need to be a problem for you though. We’ve put together a list of guides on how to do everything from getting the new UFOs, to acquiring the best weapons, completing Quests, and finding the right NPC characters.
This list will also continue to grow throughout the season, so check back regularly for more features and guides for weekly challenges and secret content. Here’s the Battle Pass trailer below in case you’re wondering what the rewards look like this season.
