Dexerto says :Aliens have well and truly taken over in Fortnite Season 7 aptly titled ‘Invasion’. From pilotable UFOs to other-worldly weapons, cosmic chests, and new NPCs, their impact can be felt through the entire game as players to try level up fast through the Battle Pass. One of the biggest new additions, however, are Alien Parasites. While they may appear terrifying at first, these critters will actually come with some unique gameplay boosts. They might not be ideal for every scenario, but coming across a swarm of Parasites may help in a sticky situation.
Here’s what they do and how you can use them to your advantage now that they’ve arrived in the game during Chapter 2, Season 7.”
How Alien Parasites work in Fortnite Season 7
Alien Parasites are the AI-controlled creatures on the Season 7 map. They’re super tiny but appear in rather large swarms, with more than around dozen often appearing at any given moment.
At first, they appear inside of green eggs littered throughout locations on the map. Upon getting close, these eggs will start to hatch and the purple Alien Parasites will try to latch on. They do this by jumping on your head and not to let go.
“While your character may struggle at first, you’ll still be in full control. You can still fire weapons and move around the map freely with a Parasite now glued to your head. In fact, you may even want to do so considering their unique buff. Having a Parasite on you means you’ll move faster, jump higher, and even be protected against headshots. This boost does come with a tradeoff, as the Alien Parasite will zap you down to 60 HP. Shield remains unaffected, though.”
All Alien Parasite stats in Fortnite Season 7
We’ve listed everything that we know so far about parasites, and how they’ll impact gameplay:
- Each parasite will have 75 health, whereas their eggs will have 60 health.
- The parasites are contained in green eggs that spawn across the map.
- The eggs will only hatch when you approach them.
- Before attaching to you, you’ll receive a warning.
- They’re able to be picked up and thrown, too.
While you’re likely to be able to plan which best landing spots to jump into depending on if you’re looking to avoid or find the parasites, you’ll still need to watch out.
The Parasite spawn locations seem as if they’ll be relatively consistent, but it looks like there’s a 66% chance of random spawns throughout the map, too.
