The Fortnite Alien Nanites are finally here, but where can players find them and how can they be used?

Alien Nanites were teased before the start of Fortnite Season 7, but players weren’t told exactly what they were. A cryptic description stated the Fortnite Alien Nanites could manipulate gravity but didn’t say how. There were also quests that mentioned Alien Nanites, but they weren’t in the game until now.

Alien Nanites serve a dual purpose. They can be used as a crafting material or a throwable utility. Added during the Fortnite v17.10 Hotfix, this alien tech has the potential to drastically change Fortnite’s gameplay. Here is where players can find them, and what they do.

Fortnite Alien Nanite locations and uses

Alien Nanites can spawn as floor loot or inside containers anywhere on the map. However, they are pretty rare so players will want to look for them where they spawn more often. Fortnite Alien Nanites have a higher chance to spawn inside chests on Alien Abductors and the Mothership.

When picked up, they will take up a slot in the player’s inventory. Yet, they can also be used as a crafting material. If a player combines an Alien Nanite with specific weapons that are Rare rarity or greater, they will transform into alien weapons. Here are the crafting recipes for Alien Nanites.

  • Rare (or greater) Assault Rifle + Alien Nanites = Pulse Rifle
  • Rare (or greater) SMG + Alien Nanites = Kymera Ray Gun
  • Rare (or greater) Sniper + Alien Nanites = Rail Gun

Lastly, the Fortnite Alien Nanites can be thrown and have an effect similar to a shield bubble. When deployed, a large cube-shaped area will emerge from the Alien Nanite. This field is called an Alien Biome and it has low gravity. It only lasts for a few seconds and gives players the no-fall damage effect when they exit.

Players will also be able to combine the Alien Nanites with a pistol once one of the encrypted alien weapons is released. Until then, have fun upgrading weapons and soaring through the skies with the new Alien Nanites.

As a part of this week’s Fortnite Legendary Challenges, players must interact with an IO Operative’s computer.

Another week of Legendary Challenges is here, and this time, Dr. Slone has players completing some very secretive quests. Players don’t have to post missing person signs or set up cow decoys. Instead, they are weeding out a mole inside of The IO.

There is a suspected mole inside of The IO that is leaking info to someone. Dr. Slone needs you to collect access cards, plant wiretaps, and talk with various NPC to find the imposter. Here is how and where players can interact with an IO Operative’s computer.

Another fairly simple quest will have players visiting even more IO outposts. Where IO Guards are located, there are surely some computers nearby that players can interact with. However, players only have to interact with one IO Operative’s computer to get the job done.

There are eight different locations around the map that have these computers. The map below shows every location which includes all of the satellite stations and Corny Complex. These locations are patrolled by IO Guards, so players will want to be careful not to draw attention to themselves.

The computers are pretty easy to find since there are multiple at each location. As well, the computer players can interact with are glowing blue. All a player needs to do is approach the IO Operative’s computer and press the action button.

Once done, the challenge will be complete and players will earn a whopping 30k experience points. If a player completes all six weekly challenges, they will earn 165k experience points total. These challenges aren’t very hard making them a quick way to rack up a ton of XP.

Wiretap key locations in Fortnite

Players will have to plant 3 different wiretaps on Dr. Slone’s behalf, and the difficult part of the challenge is finding these locations. Since Dr. Slone is having players investigate IO Guards, it makes sense that players will need to visit different IO hotspots.

Luckily for players, there are five different locations and three wiretaps can be placed at each one. This means that players will only need to visit one location to finish the challenge. The locations are as follows:

  • Dinky Dish
  • Dockside Dish
  • Defiant Dish
  • Lazy Lake (Eastern House)
  • <<Redacted>> (Tunnel next to Catty Corner)

The wiretaps appear in-game as small blue glowing boxes. Players just need to approach said boxes and press the action button to place them. All of the boxes are placed relatively close together, so players shouldn’t have a problem completing this task in one round.

Once placed, the challenge will be complete and players will earn a whopping 30k experience points. If a player completes all six weekly challenges, they will earn 165k experience points total. These challenges aren’t very hard making them a quick way to rack up a ton of XP.

Collecting IO Guard access cards in Fortnite

This is actually one of the simplest of this week’s Legendary Challenges. IO Guards can be found at numerous locations around the map, and they drop access cards when eliminated. IO Guards appear at every satellite dish, Corny Complex, and even The Aftermath.

The cards are dropped just like vault keys back in Chapter 2 Season 2. When eliminated, IO Guards will drop their weapons and an access card. All a player has to do is pick it up and the challenge will be completed. Luckily, players don’t have to use the cards in any way.

Once collected, the challenge will be complete and players will earn a whopping 45k experience points. If a player completes all six weekly challenges, they will earn 165k experience points total. These challenges aren’t very hard making them a quick way to rack up a ton of XP.
