It is safe to assume that these POIs seemed more attractive to the aliens than others. Having said that, you must compete with a ton of players when landing in Risky Reels, Sweaty Sands, and Pleasant Park. They offer great loot, and surviving initial gun fights here is an arduous task.

If you’re the last man standing, just wait for the formation of the first storm. A UFO shall appear and abduct you for a short period of time. The animation of the entire process is nerve-wrecking, to say the least. Soon after, the UFO will drop you off at a random location.

What happens after a UFO abduction?

At first glance, it might seem like the abduction is harmful. In contrast, the players who’ve been abducted so far have reported that the aliens grant 100 Shield after captivating someone. Moreover, if a player is abducted while being knocked down, the aliens revive them.

In public matches, it might take 1-30 tries to get abducted by aliens. If you’re too eager to witness it, hosting a solo/squad custom match and following the aforementioned steps is the best strategy.
