Fortnite Season 7 Weapons are essentially anti-climatic to the season 6 primal weapons, given the former has a more futuristic touch to them, alongside the alien theme. Many in this section include collecting raw materials to upgrade your weapon in-game. In many cases, players can also combine a weapon and material to make a brand new weapon.

Alien Nanites can be thrown to generate an alien biome which will deploy an anti-gravity field. If you keep jumping, it launches you into the air. As a crafting resource, Alien Nanites can be used to craft IO or Alien weapons from their regular counterparts. Alien Nanites can be used as crafting components to improve a players existing firearms and used to upgrade weapons most of the time.

Fortnite Season 7 Alien theme has brought sci-fi weapons and Alien Parasites to the mix and has added Nanites to the mix. Alien Nanites will be available as ground loot and be more common in alien-infested areas. They have two functions, one as an item and one as a crafting material. Players need to start off by finding crafting materials, then navigate the menus to hammer them onto their weapon to create a more powerful gun. The interface for making items is also tricky to use when there are players around.

Players will be able to craft their weapons into Alien Weapons using Alien Nanites. Meaning 1 Alien Nanite = 1 craft from Normal to Alien Weapons. The exact procedure was shared by iFireMonkey on Twitter and will be enabled via a hotfix. The Alien Nanite upgrades will be as follows:

  • Assault Rifles > Pulse Rifle
  • SMGs > Kymera Ray Gun
  • Pistols > Bad News
  • Snipers > Rail Gun

Players might find it disappointing to lose an assault rifle for a pulse rifle but things might turn around.
