Master Chief has landed on the Fortnite island, and Xbox players have the chance to unlock this exclusive style for him.
Fortnite has been bringing consoles together for years, now, as the first game to bridge the gap between Xbox and PlayStation. Crossplay is a given these days, but people forget that Fortnite was the first major game to include it.
Now, we have Xbox and PlayStation characters occupying the same universe. Instead of ignoring one another, Master Chief and Kratos can team-up against the bad guys of the Fortnite world.
PlayStation Fortnite players who purchased Kratos can unlock an exclusive skin style by playing a game on their new PS5. The same is true for Xbox Players who bought Master Chief.
Xbox Series X and S players can unlock an exclusive Matte Black style for Master Chief after playing a single game on their new console. Unfortunately, this doesn’t work on the last-gen Xbox One.
This promotion will run through Christmas, so don’t worry if you have to wait to get your hands on the new console. You’ll still be able to unlock the Matte Black finish when you play.
The odd-man-out is, as usual, Nintendo. Normally, we’d assume that a Nintendo IP would be entering Fortnite soon. Some fans have even called for Jonesy to enter Super Smash Bros. Unfortunately, Nintendo is notoriously protective of their characters, so we have no idea whether or not we’ll see any Nintendo characters enter Fortnite.
Of course, we’ll let you know as soon as we hear more about console-specific Fortnite crossovers, along with any other hunters that Epic announce.

Free Rift Tour Crew Pack Items
There are also three more exclusive Rift Tour items that are only available to Crew Pack members. The Rainbow Cloudcruiser Umbrella, Skye up High Loading Screen, and Rift Tour-themed banner. These are free cosmetics, but can only be obtained for a limited time.

Getting the Free Rift Tour Umbrella
Unlocking the free Rift Tour umbrella is actually pretty simple as long as players are free to hop into Fortnite sometime during August 6-8.

Every Alien Artifact location in Fortnite Season 7
Here are all of the Fortnite Alien Artifact locations from week 1 to week 8. Collect them all to customize the new Kymera skin.
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 including the Week 8 Alien Artifacts.
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 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 faint 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.
Aline Artifact Week 1 Locations
Aline Artifact Week 2 Locations
Aline Artifact Week 3 Locations
Alien Artifact Week 4 Locations
Week 5 Alien Artifact Locations
Week 6 Alien Artifact Locations
Week 7 Alien Artifact Locations
Week 8 Alien Artifact Locations
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
