Fortnite Update Patch Notes 17.10
Fortnite Alien Abductors
Abductors hover over certain locations on the Fortnite season 7 map. They’ll stay in a certain location for a short period of time and it’ll send out beams at the ground that will take away those that walk in the beam. They will then be taken to the mothership.
Once your on the mothership, you can get powerful weapons and you need to collect orange orange from the ship in order to get better weapons to take back to the map. If you find orbs with the clocks on them, you can extend your stay on the Fortnite mother ship.
You can see the locations of Abductors on the Fortnite map and they’ll visit in cycles. Unfortunately, there’s a limited amount of players that the Abductors can take at one time.
Alien Parasites are the aliens own wildlife. If these alien parasites attach to you, they’ll drain your health down to 60 but your shield will remain as it is. However, they’ll protect you from headshot damage as they attach to your head and they’ll make you run faster and jumper higher than normal.
You can get rid of an alien parasite in Fortnite by jumping into water or fire. If you find a parasite on wildlife, take out that the creature in order for the parasite to jump on you if you choose.
