New Alien Weapons

Fortnite's Season 7: Invasion added four brand-new weapons for players to experiment with. These are: Pulse Rifle, Rail Gun Rifle, Kymera Ray Gun, and Recon Scanner Launcher. Each of the weapons is an interesting take on old mechanics, and one of them even allows you to shoot through walls!

Map Changes, New Battle Pass, New Skins

Something that didn't change a lot with the new Fortnite season is the map. The only two regions that got affected are Sweaty Sands and Colossal Crops. Sweaty Sands are now known as Believer Beach, while Colossal Crops turned into Corny Complex. The latter is where the aliens leave their "signs".

In the skins department, expect Superman and Rick and Morty. Both crossovers were confirmed with the tweets by Epic and the official Season 7 trailer that followed.
