More than two months ago, Epic Games released Season 6 of Chapter 2 in Fortnite and it was dubbed as one of the greatest seasons in the game. After experiencing ‘Primal Season’, fans can now turn their attention to the next season of Chapter 2 that is releasing later today.
Earlier today, developer Epic Games revealed Chapter 2 Season 7 Invasion. Season 7 revolves around ‘aliens’ and players can get their hands on a number of alien-themed items, weapons, characters, and battle pass rewards.
They came without warning, their intentions were unclear. But what’s clear now is that a war has come to the Island.

Tons of alien stuff to grab in Season 7
Season 7 introduces UFOs to the game and players will be able to take control of these UFOs by hijacking them or shooting them down. The UFO is equipped with an energy cannon and an abduction beam. Players can use the UFOs to ‘pick up’ their enemies and transport them to a random place on the island.
Fighting an advanced race of beings will require advanced weaponry. Season 7 brings new guns like the Kymera Ray Gun, Rail Gun, Pulse Rifle, and a Recon Scanner to survey what items you can find around you. These guns and many more will be available as the season progresses. A new crafting ingredient has been introduced- Nuts and Bolts. Using these ingredients, players can craft new weapons like Burst Assault Rifle from an Assault Rifle, Rapid Fire SMG from an SMG, and a Lever Action Shotgun from a regular Shotgun.
