Fortnite - How to use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO explained

Everybody's gone to the party.

Hope you're not scared of heights! Here's how to use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO in Fortnite.

Use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO is one of the first Rift Tour quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

In preparation towards a three-day concert available 6th to 8th August, new quests are starting to emerge under the Rift Tour premise.

Alongside the task to interact with the Rift Tour posters across five locations in the battle royale map, you can also use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO for another prize.

Completing this challenge won't reward you with XP to help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass. Instead, you will receive a unique Rift Tour themed emoticon for your collection.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

How to use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO in Fortnite

First of all, it's worth mentioning that one of the quests tasks you to Save the Date in the Rift Tour tab and play a match. For this, head towards the tab in the main menu, and choose the date that best suits your region. Once that's settled, you can now go ahead and jump into a match to complete both quests simultaneously.

This is a rather straightforward quest, although it may sound a tad confusing from the get-go.

Let's start with the location. You can only complete the quest in The Aftermath, which is the massive crater in the centre of the map. We recommend you to jump off the battle bus directly here.

If you have been following the events of the past few weeks, you will notice some differences. The Party UFO (which in reality is another mothership) has a unique colour, and doesn't appear on the map. This is no trouble, however, as the UFO will always be there regardless.

As you're gliding down, make sure to land on the UFO itself. From here, all you have to do is search for the Alien Hologram Pad.

These are placed on the floor, as expected, and will showcase a pink and blue hologram once you get close. That's how you'll know you're in the right place.

All that is left to do is walk towards it and you'll be automatically launched to the air. That's all for the quest!

The emoticon rewarded for completing this quest.

In case you haven't already, make sure to interact with the Rift Tour posters for another reward.
