How to Enter a UFO in Fortnite

You come in peace, right?

In Week 2 of Chapter 2 Season 7 of Fortnite, one of our Epic Quests is to enter a UFO. For those of us new to Fortnite, UFOs are a vehicle recently introduced to Fortnite this season that we can use to travel the map. In the guide below, we explain how to enter one.

Step One: Find a UFO

There are two options for this step. You can find a UFO on the map that has already been downed, or down a UFO yourself and enter it. In the map below, we show the locations of each downed UFO.

Alternatively, you can opt to down a UFO yourself. UFOs only show up in specific locations in Fortnite, and it's different in every match. You can tell where the UFOs are in any specific match by looking at your map. On there, you will see that three named locations are glitchy and highlighted purple. Go to one of those towns.

When you get a chance, down the UFO by shooting at it with a medium or long-range weapon. The best weapons to do this are assault rifles and Rail Guns. To defeat the UFO, you must destroy its shield or deal enough damage to cause it to render it inoperable. It's best to aim for the shield itself, because if you take it down with damage, it must recharge to use it again.

Step Two: Enter the UFO

When you have down the UFO, you have completed the hardest part of this task. Now, approach the UFO's driver seat. When you're close enough, you will be prompted to enter it. Press the primary action button on your controller to enter it, as shown in the image above.

Once you've done that, you've completed the quest! You're ready to traverse across the map, fire at opponents, and beam up unsuspecting players.
