Thanks to some notable Fortnite data miners, we now know a bit more about what these Parasites do, and how they’ll affect gameplay:

  • Each parasite has 75 health, while their eggs have 60 health.
  • You can find these critters in green eggs across the map.
  • The eggs will only hatch when you’re in close proximity.
  • You’ll get a warning before they attach to you.
  • You can pick up and throw them.

While there’s no current release date for when the Alien Parasites will arrive on the Battle Royale map, early rumors suggest that they will be all across different locations on Fortnite Island.

You’ll be able to find their green eggs in the new purple mutated zones. These eggs will appear in large clusters, so you shouldn’t face too much trouble locating them.
