Finding Fortnite Trespassers so you can either use the Recon Scanner to spot them or eliminate them is not always an easy task, though there are more of them around now the alien invasion is drawing towards its conclusion. They basically act as alien Fortnite IO Guards, patrolling their areas and attacking any players they see on sight. They're armed with Kymera Ray Guns, which you can claim if you eliminate them, but that weapon quickly tears through shields and HP so make sure you're well stocked up before you go anywhere near them in Fortnite, otherwise things might not work out so well. Whether you're spotting them with the Recon Scanner or trying to eliminate them, these are the Fortnite Trespassers locations you need to know about.

To find Fortnite Trespassers, you first need to locate Fortnite UFOs that are being piloted by NPCs, rather than other players or the unattended ships you can hijack in certain locations. To do this, check your map screen and look for the named locations that are glowing in purple – these are randomized but there will be three of them in each match, and each location will have three Fortnite Trespassers flying around in saucers above. You'll also find them patrolling Holly Hatchery if you can't get near any of the map areas mentioned above.  

How to eliminate Fortnite Trespassers

Once you've located a ship piloted by one of the Fortnite Trespassers, you then need to shoot it down so you can take care of the occupant. A Rail Gun is the best weapon for this task, but any gun with range will do the job if you focus your fire. Be wary that as soon as you start shooting it, the saucer will return fire with its Energy Cannon, so as soon as you see a shot charging up you should switch position so you don't get caught in the blast.

Once the saucer is smoking and crashes down to the ground, one of the Fortnite Trespassers will emerge from it and start looking to take its revenge on you or anyone else who damaged their craft. They are armed with the Kymera Ray Gun which deals a large amount of damage, so when you're trying to eliminate Fortnite Trespassers you should stick to cover as much as possible. The Trespassers have 150 shield plus 100 health, but if you focus on headshots and keeping your fire rate up then you should be able to eliminate them quickly, before claiming their dropped Ray Gun for your arsenal.
