Summer has started on the island in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, and on top of a slew of new challenges, the ominous Mothership is now accessible to Fortnite players. Accessing the ship is an easy thing to do if you know what you’re doing and how to get to it, and what lies inside it is sure to be a welcome surprise to longtime Fortnite players. Wondering how to get inside the Mothership? Read on to find out!

How to Enter the Mothership in Fortnite Season 7

To access the Mothership in Fortnite Season 7, the first thing you’ll need to do is to find an Abductor. The abductors are the alien ships that you see flying over the map at the start of each game. They hover stationary over one location on the map, so find the nearest one from the start of the game and dive down towards it. You can try landing on top of one to grab a weapon in case you bump into someone else on the ground, or just land directly on the ground and camp out somewhere. 

The next step is to wait. The Abductors don’t enable their tractor beams right away, it actually takes about a minute into the game for them to start. Staying close to the ship, you should see the beams activate. From there, all you have to do is stand in the beam to get yourself abducted. It may take a while for the beam to actually take you up, so be patient and stay on guard of anybody trying to take you out as you wait to be abducted. 


When you’re taken up into the Abductor, you’ll find yourself in the Mothership in a waiting room, with a device strapped to your back and a new weapon equipped. The device on your back is a timer, and you’ll soon be racing against the clock to get yourself a huge supply of loot within the time limit. You’ll disappear from your waiting room again and reappear in a strange room full of floating points of interest (POIs) from the past seasons of Fortnite. 

After a short while, vault orbs will appear in the room and have their locations visually indicated to you. Hunt them down, being careful of other players, and hold the interact button to collect them. The more vault orbs you collect, the better the loot you will have access to at the end of the abduction. You can also collect timers, blue orbs on the ground that will increase the time you have in this area to collect vault orbs and boost the quality of your loot. Don’t worry if you fall from the floating POIs, when you hit the bottom of the room you will respawn back on a floating area.

Once time runs out and you’ve collected your vault orbs, you’ll be in the loot room with a lot of large chests. Open as many as you can and claim all the weapons you want, collecting lots of building material and gold bars along the way. After about 20 seconds or so, you’ll be returned to the island, falling from the sky ready to continue the game. 

We hope this guide helped you make your way into the Mothership and grab some high quality gear to see yourself through to that Victory Royale! Thanks for reading!
