Alien Nanite has finally appeared in Fortnite Season 7, but where can you find them? While this season has brought several new alien-themed items for players to discover and use, Alien Nanites are a new crafting material. We tell you where you can get the new Alien Nanites.

It seems as if the Alien Abductors have left and returned to their mothership, but have left behind their Alien Nanites, hidden all over the map. These Nanites were added to the game in the recent Patch 7.11 update and can be used to make anti-gravity bubbles and craft alien weapons.

Let’s check out where you can find Alien Nanites in Fortnite.

How to Find Alien Nanites

There are a few different places that you can find Alien Nanites in Fortnite. For the most part, the spawn rate is similar to all ground loot, but far less frequent. We would compare the spawn rate to that of Nuts & Bolts, which are used to upgrade common weapons to their different weapon variants.

  • Nanites can be found randomly scattered on the ground, just like other consumable items.
  • Nanites can drop after killing a player as a bonus item.
  • Nanites can be found inside regular Chests or IO Chests.
  • Nanites can be found near UFOs.

The now renamed POI, Holy Hatchery, features a Zero-G field created by Alien Nanite. It looks like a giant pink anti gravity field and if you wish you can experience some Zero-Gs here. But, this place does not guarantee a Nanite crafting material will be there.

What Are Alien Nanites Crafted into?

Alien Nanites have several in-game uses. Players can throw them down, creating a large anti-gravity bubble. While inside, players will float through the air in Zero-Gs, and it will feel like a mix between flying and swimming. Alien Nanites can also be used in crafting alien weapons.

  • A Submachine Gun crafted with Nanite will create a Kymera Ray Gun.
  • An Assault Rifle crafted with Nanite will create a Pulse Rifle.
  • A Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle crafted with Nanite will create a Railgun.

We are pretty excited to see that the Common Assault Rifle can be crafted into the Pulse Rifle because it is one of the best alien weapons in Fortnite Season 7. Now, it will be much easier to fill out your desired loadout in each lobby, and getting your hands on the IO Tech Weapons is that much easier.
