Fortnite ray guns: How to find Kymera Ray Gun locations explained


Fortnite's ray gun is a new addition to Season 7, and goes hand-in-hand with the alien theme as part of a sweeping set of map changes.

Joining several other new weapons - including the IO Tech pulse rifle, recon scanner and rail gun - the Kymera Ray Gun is an "alien creation" which fires a continuous beam of energy.

Kymera, if you're curious, is one of the Season 7 Battle Pass skins, of which you can acquire Alien Artefacts to customise to your liking.

Fortnite ray gun locations: How to get the Kymera Ray Gun in Fortnite

The Kymera Ray Gun can be sourced in two ways:

  • Defeating Trespassers, a new enemy type introduced in Season 7 (Rare Ray Gun)
  • Reaching the Vault following a Mothership Abduction (Legendary Ray Gun)

Let's go through these one by one.

Rare Ray Guns from Tresspassers

Trespassers can be found piloting UFOs, another new addition to the season.

Our UFO locations page explains where to find these flying saucers in more specific detail, but in short - head to one of the three 'purple' invaded areas of the map, and bring down the saucer.

Hijacking a UFO and getting a Ray Gun in Fortnite Season 7

Our recommendation - as such in the above video - is to lure a UFO in, let it abduct you with its tractor beam, then shoot the cockpit to take down the Trespasser inside.

You can also shoot down the UFO if you fancy more of a fight. Either way, once the Trespasser is out in the open, defeat them, and loot the items - one of which will be the Kymera Ray Gun.


Recently added to the game is the Refer a friend program and the Cube Queen skin. Recent quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.

The Rare Kymera Ray Gun has unlimited ammo, and though it won't do much to structures, it can offer a continuous stream of 9 damage to enemies if you get your aim right.


Legendary Ray Guns from the Mothership

From June 22nd came the arrival of mothership abducting. The aforementioned link will explain how this works, but in short, find an Abductor ship and let it beam you up to a mini-game where you collect Vault Orbs.

Find all five before the time ends, and you can open a number of Legendary chests, inside of which can spawn a Legendary Ray Gun.


Similar to the Rare version, the Legendary Ray Gun has unlimited ammo, and though it won't do much against structures, will do a continuous stream of 11 damage to any other enemies.


It's possible other ray gun-sourcing methods could be introduced as the season progresses - and as always, be sure to loot defeated enemies in case they had it in their inventories, which can save you going toe-to-toe with an extra-terrestrial.
