Every Alien Artifact in Fortnite Season 7: All locations and how to collect them quickly

Chapter 2 - Season 7 of Fortnite introduced Alien Artifacts, which are required to unlock the styles for the Kymera outfit in the Battle Pass. Collecting these artifacts has been an arduous task for players this season.

Every week, Epic Games releases five new Alien Artifacts on the map. To unlock all the Kymera styles, players not only have to find these Alien Artifacts but farm Cosmic Chests as well.

While players can only grind for Cosmic Chests in Duos, Trios or Squads, here are the locations of all the Alien Artifacts that they can quickly collect before the season ends.

A post on Fortnite's official sub-reddit, r/FortNiteBR, highlighted all the Alien Artifacts on the current map.

Players need a total of 360 Alien Artifacts to unlock all the available Kymera outfits. Apart from finding the ones mentioned above, they have to farm Cosmic Chests that can drop a maximum of 15 artifacts in a single week.

Chapter 2 - Season 8 is still a few weeks away, but Epic Games hasn't released the Alien Artifacts for Week 11. It is safe to assume that the developer won't release any new artifacts now, and players will have to rely on Cosmic Chests to complete the Kymera set.


How to open Cosmic Chests in Fortnite?

Cosmic Chests are the only source of Alien Artifacts in Fortnite. They are a new loot mechanism that is only available in Squads, Trios and Duos.

Cosmic Chests spawn randomly and there are no fixed areas where players can farm them. However, after finding one, the teams must ensure that they open the loot box carefully.

Cosmic Chests target a player with a pink laser, who shall then hit the chest with a pickaxe. Every player targeted by the chest must repeat the process, and it will soon drop valuable loot items and Alien Artifacts.

Chapter 2 - Season 7 also had many free rewards that players should unlock as soon as possible. The countdown timer for the season ending Operation: Sky Fire live event has already begun, and Chapter 2 - Season 8 will most likely arrive on September 13.

Valve responds after Artifact community slams 'pay for everything' model

Update: Valve has addressed some (but not all) of the complaints in a blog post. The next beta update, coming today, will include the option to play Call to Arms Phantom Draft events in user-created tournaments, as well as a Casual Phantom Draft gauntlet to practice drafting without spending a ticket. Before the beta ends, Valve will also add "a system that allows extra, unwanted cards to be recycled into event tickets," so that low value cards aren't a total waste. The developer hasn't commented on requests for card trading or the difficulty of winning card packs. The original story follows.

Original story:Artifact's public beta launches tomorrow, but many would-be players have lost their appetite for Valve's digital card game because of its monetisation model. A Reddit post from yesterday that encourages players to cancel their pre-orders is now the top post of all-time on the Artifact subreddit, while numerous other popular threads are slamming the payment model, described as "pay for everything you do".

Here's the deal: You have to pay $20 for the Artifact base game, which gets you some starter cards. The only way to get new cards on top of that is to spend money. You can buy booster packs packs for $2, you can buy and sell specific cards through the marketplace (for which Valve takes a small cut), or you can win cards by playing game modes that require paid-for tickets to enter. Currently, you cannot trade for cards.

The community is also upset at the contents of the 12-card booster packs: one of them is guaranteed to be a hero card, but many of the others could well be starter cards, which are likely to be close to worthless on the marketplace, because other players will have acquired them as part of the base game. "I'm just so saddened by the greed Valve is showing," said Reddit user filipanton then he started this thread. "I was actually changing my mind a bit about the game after seeing some gameplay as it seems quite complex and interesting, but the 'pay for everything you do' model, and now this, just forces me to not support the game."

You can win card packs by playing either Expert Constructed/Phantom Draft Gauntlets, which cost one ticket to enter, or Keeper Draft Gauntlets, which costs two tickets and five packs to play. To get packs, and to win back your tickets, you'll have to win a series of games against progressively harder opponents. The exact numbers are in Tim's post here, but basically it's going to be hard—and once you lose two games, your time in the gauntlet is up and you have to buy more tickets to play again.

It's not just Reddit users that are annoyed about the model: Team Liquid pro player Savjz tweeted that the "paywall is huge fucking mistake", while popular Hearthstone streamer Disguised Toast said that while Artifact had a "high skill ceiling" and "lots of strategy", the fact you have to pay for more cards counts against it. 

It's worth pointing out that, away from the paid-for events, players be able to create their own tournaments, but these won't support prizes at launch.

Valve's recent FAQ on the game seemed to suggest that the developer was open to changing its monetisation policy based on player feedback, so let's see what happens.

Artifact is due out on November 28.

It looks like an incredible golf artifact has popped up on Reddit of all places. The only thing more incredible than the fact that Gene Sarazen’s 1950 Masters medallion has appeared on the social news website, is how the Reddit user found it.

From the “you can’t make this stuff up” files, TuckerG23 took to Reddit yesterday to post a picture of, what appears to be, Gene Sarazen’s medallion from the 1950 Masters. And more interestingly, he says he found it at the bottom of a river in upstate New York a decade ago.

Here’s what he had to say about finding the bit of bronze memorabilia.

“From what I know, the Sarazen’s owned a house about a mile or so from the stream we fish in and the home burnt down. But how the medallion ended up in the stream, your guess is as good as mine…It was on the bottom of the stream bed under a few feet of water and was giving off a metallic shine. Me being 10 or 11 at the time had to jump in a figure out what it was. I honestly remember thinking it was just a big penny or something of the sort. Turns out I was wrong.”

SEE ALSO: Buying a home in Augusta can be an extremely lucrative business

He’s right about Sarazen owning a house in upstate New York: the Squire owned a farm in Germantown. And while it’s theoretically possible TuckerG23/some other entity went to great lengths to forge the medallion, it certainly looks genuine.

Below a photo of Masters competitor Frank Stranahan’s souvenir medallion bearing the image of ANGC’s clubhouse from the same year. Stranahan was the low amateur and finished 14th that year, and his medal sold for $1,647.95 on TheGolfAuction.com in 2014.

It will be eminently interesting to see what the Redditor decides to do with the medal. Perhaps, it will find its way to Green Jacket Auctions like the so-called “thrift store green jacket.” As we detailed here, some fortunate fellow snapped up the early 1950s vintage green jacket at a Toronto thrift store. Presently, the top bid on the jacket is more than $10,000 with 13 days remaining on the auction.

Jordan Spieth told off some autograph hustlers, telling them to get real jobs or get lost. These are some those golf artifacts you might come across being sold on the Internet:

'Artifact' Streamers and Reddit Upset Over Monetization of Valve's Card Game

When Artifact, Valve's DOTA 2 card game, was first revealed at the 2017 International tournament, response seemed lackluster. Fans of the company and it's games like Counter Strike and Half-Life have been waiting for the gaming titan to release more titles in their favorite series for decades. Instead, they got a MOBA-themed deck builder that just doesn't have the same star appeal as a Portal 3 . Still, many players waited until they could see the game for themselves before making any judgment calls.

Now that Artifact has finally lifted it's streaming embargo, some of the most successful (and vocal) players can finally share their opinions of the game. Twitch streamers like Forsen, Disguised Toast and Thisj have been tinkering with the game's Beta and have been waiting patiently to share their opinions. Many have wondered if Valve has a game that can topple Hearthstone, the largest online card game of the last five years. If you look at their responses, that doesn't look likely.

Artifact's gameplay has been applauded; having three lanes to fight on increases strategic depth and allows for more interesting play. Using heroes and a unique mana system, you can do things that just aren't possible in other card games. The big problems start to arise when you look at the game's monetization model. Buying the game costs $20, which gives you 10-packs, five event tickets and two starter decks full of common cards. You can only earn cards by opening packs, by buying them in the Steam marketplace or by earning them in limited time Keeper Draft events (which cost an even ticket.) Packs can be bought for real-world money or earned by winning games in Expert (competitive) modes that cost an event ticket.

Heroes are needed for play, but can only be found in Call to Arms packs. If you can't find the heroes you need in your card packs, you're either going to have to barter in the marketplace or keep spending real-world money.

UPDATE: Valve has addressed a series of these concerns in a new blog post. "Since lifting the NDA on the private beta yesterday, there's been an overwhelming amount of feedback on all parts of the game," the post said. In the next Beta build (available later today), players will be able to do a Phantom Draft in any user-created tournament and will be able to play the mode in Casual Play as well. Also, extra cards will be able to be recycled into event tickets.

Kripparrian, one of the largest Hearthstone content creators, has been streaming the game for the past few days and has released a video talking about Artifact's economy. "In Artifact, it's almost impossible to gain value from your time," he said. "If you want to play the competitive modes all the time, you're going to have to put money into the game or constantly be using the Marketplace."

The Artifact subreddit seems to share a lot of the same sentiments. Posts with hundreds of upvotes talk about the problems with the monetization model. "This sub is going nuclear. If this sub is an accurate reflection of the majority, then RIP Artifact," wrote one user. Many seem upset by the fact that drafts cost one dollar to play and packs can't be earned just by grinding the game. If you want to be successful at Artifact , you are going to need to put down a significant amount of real-world money.

One user looked into Richard Garfield's Manifesto, a Facebook post created by the creator of Magic the Gathering and one of the leads working on Artifact. Garfield believes that "paying for things that give an advantage in a competitive game is something that I believe can be done in a way that is not abusive" and that buying "power ups, leveling and access to tools" preys on gamers. Being able to pay-to-win is bad card design according to Garfield, who believes that Artifact's method of pay-to-maybe-win is better.

It's unclear what the future holds for Artifact. Those most vocal online believe that's it's dead on arrival, while others are willing to give it more of a shot.

Genshin Impact - Artifact Tier List
This is an Artifact Tier List for Genshin Impact. Keep reading to learn about the best Artifact Sets, Artifact stats, and the best choices for Artifact farming.

SetSet Bonus
Noblesse Oblige Set IconNoblesse Oblige2-Piece: Elemental Burst DMG +20%.
4-Piece: Using an Elemental Burst increases all party members' ATK by 20% for 12s. This effect cannot stack.
GladiatorGladiator's Finale2-Piece: ATK +18%.
4-Piece: If the wielder of this artifact set uses a Sword, Claymore or Polearm, increases their Normal Attack DMG by 35%.

Gladiator's Finale and Noblesse Oblige are currently the most flexible sets avaliable as they can easily fit into any DPS, Sub-DPS or Support build for an overall damage boost. While Noblesse Oblige is farmable via Domains, Gladiator's Finale is only dropped by Field and Weekly Bosses. With a cost of 40 to 60 Resin per run, Gladiator's Finale is rather difficult to farm despite its powerfull bonuses.

The Damage Bonus sets bring elemental build flexibilty with their 2 Piece bonuses and typically have a unique effect with their 4 Piece bonuses. Many of these sets are currently considered the best for certain characters, like Crimson Witch of Flames for Diluc, or Heart of Depth for Tartaglia. These sets are all farmable via Domains with the exception of Wanderer's Troupe which is the same as Gladiator's Finale and locked behind Field and Weekly bosses.

The 5 star sets in A Tier are typically sought after for their 4 Piece Set bonus rather than their 2 Piece bonuses, or are particularly narrow in build flexibility. The 4 star sets are overall great sets but are held back by their status as max 4 Star Artifacts as their upgrade level caps at +16. However, these Artifacts are still able to find their ways into many builds and are great place holders untill more power 5 Star Artifacts are found.

These Artifacts can provide a great boost to both damage and utility especially in the lower Adventure Ranks. Brave Heart and Resolution of Sojourner are partucularly nice as they are the only Max 4 Star Artifacts that boost ATK as a 2 Piece bonus. Unfortunately, most of these Artifiacts are quickly replaced as builds become more tailored in higher Adventure Ranks.

Artifacts in C Tier are generally outshined by most other Artifacts. The Prayers Set, while having great flexibility with 1 Piece bonuses, are difficult to farm due to being locked behind Field Bosses and only offer defensive bonuses. The 3 Star aritfacts are usually found in treasure chests throughout Teyvat and are typically used as upgrade fodder for other Artifacts.

Artifact screen

Powerful Artifacts that can fit into many builds and roles are highly valued due to 2 Piece and 4 Piece bonuses.

While there are some characters that can take advantage of the defensive sets, currently there is no content that demands use of such Artifacts.

Heavily conditional or situational Artifacts are not as sought after, however these lower value Artifacts can be used to strengthen your more powerful ones.

In the Artifact Lab

We open our windows in the lab twice daily, inviting our visitors to ask us anything, so why not open our windows just a bit wider, inviting anyone on the Internet to fire questions at us? We are doing just that, tomorrow, from 11:00-12:30 EST on reddit.com. I must confess that other than perusing Reddit a few times last fall while I, along with much of the rest of the world, listened to the first season of Serial, I have no experience using Reddit. According to it’s Wikipedia page, Reddit is an “entertainment, social networking, and news website” and content entries are organized by areas of interest called “subreddits.” One of the most popular subreddits is IAmA (“I am A”) where a user may post “AMAs” (Ask Me Anything).

So tomorrow, Wednesday March 11, from 11:00-12:30, Lynn Grant and I will be online for our very own AMA with the title “We are museum conservators working with ancient Egyptian artifacts in full public view, at the Penn Museum in Philadelphia. Ask us anything!

Tom Stanley, our intrepid Public Relations/Social Media Coordinator, set the AMA up, and posted instructions on how to find us on Reddit tomorrow if you’d like to follow along or ask us a question. You can find the blogpost with instructions by following this link.

Looking forward to hearing from you tomorrow!

Genshin Impact 2.2 - New Artifact Set has apparently been leaked

Artifacts are one of the crucial things when it comes to character builds in the game of Genshin Impact. Choosing the right artifact set plays a huge role on a character's impact on the field. 

A recent post on the IttoMains subreddit has apparently revealed one of the sets that will soon be obtainable in the game - Bai Chen's Wish to Leave. According to their site, the artifacts will have the following stats:

  • Two-piece bonus: Healing Effect increased by 15 per cent
  • Four-piece bonus: If the healed target's HP is over 80 per cent, it will get reduced by 10 per cent HP to decreases Energy Recharge cooldown by 1 second. This effect can be triggered once very 5 seconds for each character. It can also be triggered while the artifact set holder is off-screen.

This artifact set will be most efficient for support characters that thrive on getting on the field to use their Elemental Burst such as Albedo or Zhongli. Players were asking for a five-star artifact set with an Energy Recharge two-piece set nad this set could take ER to another level.

Reddit Genshin Impact - Thoma

This artifact set is could be a part of the long-awaited update 2.2 which is a couple of weeks away.  The official Genshin Impact Twitter account has already made clear that Thoma is probably the next character to be released. Recent leaks have revealed a bunch of interesting characters like Gorou, Tohma, Yae Miko and others. Even though we have no official confirmation, the majority of leaks claim that he's going to be a Pyro character. Also, the overall theme of his design strongly hints towards a Pyro character.
