Fortnite Season 7 has finally arrived, and there have been some pretty big changes to the game. From drivable UFOs to living loot llamas, here are the biggest additions to Fortnite Season 7.

We all knew aliens were coming, but we didn’t know how big of an impact they would have on Fortnite. After the servers went down on Tuesday morning, data miners discovered just how big this season is. The map itself may not have changed as much as in previous seasons, but the loot pool and gameplay changes are incredible.

This article will go over every major change from Fortnite v.17.00. There is a lot to cover so buckle up and try not to get blown away.

Alien invasion and abductions in Season 7

The theme for this season is Invasion. This title is very fitting seeing as the map is being invaded by hostile aliens. They’ve brought with them an arsenal of futuristic weapons (which we will get to in a moment) and also new hostile NPCs.

Players will notice that The Spire has disappeared from the center of the map. This is because it was destroyed by the invading aliens. The aliens will also abduct players randomly during the match and give them 15 seconds to loot chest from the giant Mothership that now floats above the map.

Drivable UFOs and high-tech weapons

UFOs can be found around the map which players can pilot. Similar to Choppas, UFOs have a 100% spawn rate at the locations they can be found. They can be used to reboot players. They also come equipped with a Tractor Beam and a Laser Cannon.

There are also a lot of new weapons added to Fortnite Season 7 including the Rail Gun, Pulse Rifle, Recon Scanner, and Ray Gun. Each one functions as a unique weapon that is sure to spice up Fortnite’s gameplay.

Living Loot Llama update

One of the most obscure changes this season is a massive change to the way Loot Llamas work. Instead of sitting still while players either bash them open or shoot them, Loot Llamas will now run away from players. They will leak loot as players deal damage to them, and they can also teleport.

Crossovers and future updates

As teased in videos by Epic Games earlier this week, Fortnite Season 7 features crossovers with both Rick & Morty and Superman. Both of these skins can be obtained by purchasing the Battle Pass. As well, both skins come with their own sets of items.

Fortnite also promises that this season will continue to add more weapons and locations over time. The season’s description states, “As the Season progresses and the war escalates, new weaponry will be deployed and the battlefield will be shaken up.”

Logjam Lumberyard in Fortnite

With Fortnite v21.10, the Reality Tree has fully affected Logjam Lumberyard. It will now choose a random POI theme for every game which includes Tilted Town, Coral Castle, and others.

Fortnite players expect Epic Games to add map changes with every update. The developers have tried doing so in Chapter 3 and accordingly, the response towards the new chapter has been overwhelmingly positive.

Here’s how the first major update for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has brought back OG POIs from Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 in the most unique way possible.

Everything to know about the updated Logjam Lumberyard in Fortnite v21.10

For the first time in history, we now have a location on the map that changes every game. As it turns out, Logjam Lumberyard will include elements from a wide range of locations from Chapter 1 and Chapter 2.

The community has discovered the following themes so far:

  • Neo Tilted/ Tilted Town (Wild West theme)
  • Coral Castle (Atlantis theme)
  • Colossal Coliseum (Roman theme)
  • Lazy Lagoon (Pirates theme)

It wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that with the 21.10 update, Logjam Lumberyard has become one of the best locations in Fortnite. While new players can finally explore the most prominent regions of Chapter 1 and Chapter 2 islands, veterans can recreate their memories.

Other map changes in Fortnite v21.10 explained

The popular Butter Barn landmark will now turn into a POI. With the latest patch, the developers have added buildings from Neo Tilted to Butter Barn and the landmark looks bigger and better than ever.

Last but not least, Darth Vader is now a boss and he spawns in random locations. Apparently, the Zero Point brought a Star Wars relic to the island which is why Vader is here. He can travel in his Lambda-Class shuttle and there’s no definite location where players can find him.

It is no surprise that Darth Vader is a terrifying boss. He has a Mythic lightsaber and players will get 2,000 XP every team they defeat him.

All in all, Fortnite v21.10 is certainly brilliant in terms of map changes and gameplay. However, the same cannot be said for the No Sweat Summer event and the Nindo challenges.

However, Epic Games has also added summer-themed elements in Battle Royale game modes this time.

Fortnite No Sweat Summer event to have ‘Island Hopper’ challenges

With the recent Creator Callout, Fortnite made it clear that No Sweat Summer won’t feature any maps based on combat. Instead, the emphasis will on light-hearted games like prop hunts and death runs.

Accordingly, leaker iFireMonkey has disclosed the six maps with summer-themed XP challenges:

  • One Trigger 100 days
  • Parkour Universe
  • BLIMP WARS 1000 [Ghost vs Shadow]
  • Color Dash
  • ULTIMATE MURDER MYSTERY
  • Prop Hunt: Modern Mall

Players will have to enter these maps and complete the following quests:

  • Collect resources in PvE One Trigger 100 days (3000)
  • Use Vending Machines in Blimp Wars (8)
  • Unlock achievements in Parkour Universe (3)
  • Get Melee eliminations in Murder Mystery (1)
  • Eliminate Prop opponents in Prop Hunt: Modern Mall (3)
  • Unlock achievements in Color Dash (4)

Each challenge grants 10,000 XP, implying that the total XP output from the No Sweat Summer event will be 60,000. Moreover, three cosmetics will be handed out as free rewards to players upon completion.

The free rewards for this year’s summer event are:

  • Tropical Infrared wrap
  • Tropical Infra-Ravage Spray
  • Tropical Infra-Raven Spray
  • Infrared GG emoticon

Fortnite brings back Flare Guns for No Sweat Summer event in v21.10

Even though the best way to enjoy No Sweat Summer in Fortnite v21.10 will be Creative, Epic Games has unvaulted Flare Guns in Battle Royale. The weapon not only sets fire but also helps in revealing opponents’ positions.

The Firework Flare Gun in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 reveals enemies and has a goofy design that caters to the ongoing ‘Vibin’ theme.

Having said that, the latest Fortnite update has only added the Meowscles and The Order NPCs. From the looks of it, Summer Drift, Beach Bomber, and other summer skins won’t return to the island and yet again, fans will have to wait for Summer Meowscles.

Some leakers believe that summer cosmetics are most likely encrypted. We’ll make sure to update this article if new leaks regarding No Sweat Summer event surface.
