Fortnite Week 5 Alien Artifact Locations

Five more alien artifacts arrive in Week 5.


The Fortnite Week 5 Alien Artifacts have arrived as of July 8, meaning you're free to complete the challenge now. But these valuable canisters of Alien Aritfacts can be tricky to find as they're tucked away in new places every week. If you're wondering where to find the new Alien Artifacts this week, we'll walk you through how to collect all five and continue customizing Kymera.

Week 5 Alien Artifacts

There are once again five different locations where you can reliably find Alien Artifacts this week. Each canister gives you another five Alien Artifacts, meaning you can add 20 to your inventory this week before you even have to think about Cosmic Chests, which appear randomly in Battle Royale modes played in teams of two or bigger.

You can find the Week 5 Alien Artifacts at the following locations:

  • At a small campsite northeast of Craggy Cliffs
  • Near the basketball court in Retail Row
  • On top of the clocktower in Misty Meadows
  • In the attic of the blue house in the southeast of Believer Beach
  • Above the gazebo in the middle of Pleasant Park

Kymera, the Tier 1 Battle Pass alien character, can be customized across a variety of features, including armor color, skin color, armor underglow, eye color, head shape, and more. Each category of Kymera's features includes a tiered list of options ranging from two to 17 Alien Artifacts per item, including a full set of free options which act as the default Kymera style. To unlock the most expensive item in any category, you'll need to first unlock all the others before it in the same category.

That's why collecting all Fortnite Alien Artifacts each week is so important if you're hoping to unlock the full range of features. Unlike past customizable Battle Pass cosmetics like Chapter 2 Season 2's Maya or Chapter 2 Season 3's 'Brella, Kymera can be restyled whenever you feel like it. There's no permanent locking-in of his look. You could even make multiple Kymera characters for different presets. It's like amassing an alien army for your loadouts. But you have to get Alien Artifacts during the week in which they debut, as they're replaced the following week with new ones.

If you're all set with this challenge, check out other Week 5 challenges instead and be well on your way to preparing for the arrival of Superman in Fortnite, and be sure to check out the Week 6 Alien Artifact Locations.
