Rick Sanchez from the popular cartoon Rick & Morty has made his way into the world’s most popular Battle Royale. Here is how to get the Rick skin in Fortnite Season 7.
Grandpa Rick is part of the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass which means players will have to work a little bit to get him. Luckily, players who have an active Fortnite Crew subscription will already have access to this season’s Battle Pass.
However, he is easier to unlock than you’d think. Since Fortnite Season 7 features the return of the Battle Star system, players only need to earn enough stars to unlock him. The Battle Star system allows players to unlock Battle Pass items in the order that they want. So, Grandpa Rick can be the first skin that players unlock this season.
Rick Fortnite skin set and cost
There is a catch to the Battle Star system though, that may make it take longer for players to unlock Rick. Rick is on page 10 of the Battle Pass which means players have to be at least level 90 to purchase his cosmetics. Alternatively, players can claim 89 Battle Pass rewards to unlock Page 10.
When players finally unlock page ten, they can then buy the Rick skin in Fortnite for 9 Battle Stars. Rick also comes with a cosmetic set of 8 other items that can also be purchased. The Hammer Morty pickaxe costs 7 Stars. The Butter Robot Back Bling costs six Stars. His weapon wrap costs five Stars, and his Glider costs six stars.
His set also comes with an emoticon, emote, spray, and loading screen. While he can be the first skin that players purchase, they would have to spend a lot of V-Bucks on Battle Pass tiers. Since Rick is essentially the Level 100 skin for this season, it makes sense that he would take longer to unlock.
Rick also has a skin variant that can be unlocked that turns him green and slimey. This style is found under a different Battle Pass tab and also has to be purchased using Battle Stars. Players also have to meet certain criteria to unlock the page it’s on.
Every Alien Artifact location in Fortnite Season 7
The new Kymera skin can only be customized using a special material, and here are all of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations in Fortnite.
The Kymera skin is a highly customizable outfit in the Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass, but it requires Alien Artifacts to unlock its parts. Here are the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations.
Similar to the Season 3 Brella glider and Season 2 Maya skin, the Season 7 Battle Pass has its own custom skin. Kymera is the first skin players receive after purchasing the Battle Pass, and he’s also seen as the main enemy in the Season 7 story trailer.
However, Kymera’s parts aren’t unlocked by completing different challenges or reaching certain levels. Instead, Season 7 introduces a new form of currency called Alien Artifacts. These are used to purchase different style options from the Kymera Battle Pass menu. This guide will show players all of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations.
Alien Artifact locations in Fortnite
There are two way to obtain Alien Artifacts: Collecting the weekly canisters and opening Cosmic Chests. Cosmic Chests randomly appear in Squads Mode and drop a random number of Alien Artifacts when opened. If you’re interested in hunting these chests, check out our guide on where to find Cosmic Chests.
Below is a map designed by Fortnite.gg that shows the locations of the current Alien Artifacts. More Artifacts will be added each week at different locations around the map. Each of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations gives players four artifacts. A gold rarity has yet to be added that will give players seven.
The Alien Artifacts are out in the open and make a feint noise when nearby. This makes them easy to locate and collect. To collect them, players simply need to walk into them. They can even drive through them using a boat, car, or UFO. The artifacts will be given to players when they return to the lobby after the match.
There aren’t any other uses for Alien Artifacts outside of purchasing Kymera parts. Players are encouraged to spend their Alien Artifacts as they get them because the best alien parts are locked behind purchasing all of the parts from that category. While you may only be able to get a limited number of Alien Artifacts easily, Cosmic Chest hunting allows players to obtain an unlimited amount
Where to find Cosmit Chests & how to open them in Fortnite Season 7
The new Cosmic Chests in Fortnite Season 7 have a lot of rare goodies inside. Here’s how to find and open them to collect Alien Atifacts.
The new Cosmic Chests are filled with some very valuable materials making them highly sought after. Here is how players can find and open Cosmic Chests in Fortnite Season 7.
Cosmic Chests are a new form of looting added at the start of Season 7. They are similar to Legendary Chests, Loot Llamas, and Supply Drops in term of what they drop. However, they are harder to open and will drop bonus rewards for each player.
Each chest will drop an Epic or Legendary weapon for each member of the party. As well, they will drop 3 bonus items for each player on the squad. These bonus items can be 1-3 Alien Artifacts, Gold Bars, and 125-1050 XP. They also have the ability to drop Battle Stars, but that hasn’t been activated yet.
Find and open Cosmic Chests
First of all, Cosmic Chests will only appear in Duos, Trios, and Squads modes. They can’t spawn in Solos because it requires a squad to open them. This also means that a solo player in Squads can’t open them. They will randomly spawn in during a match, and as shown on the map below, an icon will appear for all players. Like supply drops, everyone in the match can see the location of the chest once it spawns.

When approaching a Cosmic Chest, it will ask that all squad members be present. The chest cannot begin to be opened until everyone is nearby. Then, it will ask players to take turns hitting the weak spot that appears. Each player will get one hit before the next player has to go. Once all 10 weak points have been hit, the chest will open.
If a player hits the chest and it isn’t their turn, they will be launched away from the chest. The order in which players are chosen to hit the chest will also be random. This means players need to pay attention so they can open the chest before enemy squads arrive.
Chests have the chance to drop Rocket Launchers and other valuable weaponry. However, players will likely be hunting them down to obtain the Alien Artifacts. These are used to unlock Kymera parts, and Cosmic Chests in Fortnite are the only way to get Alien Artifacts outside of the weekly locations.

Fortnite character locations map
Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG have an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 6.
Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 7. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.
- Green icon: can hire the NPC
- Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
- Blue weapons: can duel the NPC
- Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
- Yellow Box: can call down a Supply Drop
Compared to seasons past, the number of NPCs around the map is very minimal. As well, players can no longer upgrade weapons through NPCs. As for Exotic weapons, there is only one NPC that has a special weapon and that’s Dr. Slone at Corny Complex.
