Fortnite UFOs - Known locations

As UFOs have just started appearing in Fortnite, we don't know exactly where they will spawn as the end-of-season event continues.

However, your best bet to spot one of the first UFOs is to head to the Risky Reels location. This is where UFOs have been spotted the most so far.

As the event continues leading up to Fortnite Season 7 (releasing on 8th June) players should see more and more UFOs appear on the island.


How to get abducted in Fortnite and effects

If you do manage to get abducted, players will be shot out at a random location on the map. Reports suggest more players get spit out at Colossal Crops, which makes sense since that's where the Crop Circles have appeared for the Foreshadowing questline.

Check out the video posted by famous dataminer and leaker iFireMonkey below, showing how a player gets abducted.

So how do you get abducted by aliens in Fortnite? Well, when a UFO appears, a random player will be picked, a beam will lock onto them, and they will be sucked up into the sky.

Your best chance of getting abducted is to simply stand close to where the UFOs spawn and hope for the best.

The UFO abduction effect in Fortnite will transport a player to a random location. It also drains your stamina a bit but provides the player will full health and shields once they land.
