Fortnite challenge guide: Destroy alien eggs

As part of Fortnite season 7, week 14, you’ll face a new batch of challenges that test your skills. For the most part, these new challenges aren’t terribly difficult, especially if you’ve played a lot this season. One that might cause a little trouble is for destroying alien eggs. The reason it’s tricky is that you need to know where to go. Even if you’ve played a lot this season, it’s easy to overlook these alien eggs during the heat of battle. This season has actually featured numerous alien egg/parasite challenges, so if you’ve been following along, you might already know what to do.

Either way, in this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about completing the latest challenges. Here’s how to destroy alien eggs in Fortnite.

Where to find eggs

The key to this challenge is picking a location that isn’t often contested while still coming prepared. That way, you can focus on the task at hand without worrying about other players taking you out. There are several different spots that fit these criteria, such as the area to the south of Holly Hatchery or the spot to the north of Lazy Lake. We picked a busier area to complete this challenge, just to see how it would go, and it was still manageable, but lower-skilled players should try to avoid this.

You can find all the egg locations by using the map above (thanks, The main thing to know is that you must grab a weapon before approaching the eggs. That’s because they’ll attach to your head if you get too close, which negates the ability to complete this challenge. Since you need to destroy three eggs, it’s not a bad idea to pick a spot with a lot of them, so you don’t have to run around the map. We like Holly Hatchery, but keep in mind, this area is tough since there are deadly NPCs there. Though, if you’re quick, you can destroy three before being eliminated.

If you only manage to destroy some of the eggs, don’t panic. Your progress carries over from match to match, so you can just continue where you left off in a separate game.

As soon as you have the eggs in your sight, shoot them from afar to destroy them. It’s important you don’t get too close. If you don’t have a long-range weapon, search the area around you until you find one. Anything will do, such as an assault rifle, pistol, or SMG. Once you’ve destroyed three eggs, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP. As long as you come prepared, you should be able to check this one off your list quickly.

Now that Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 4 has been out for a little while, we've got a better sense of the game's weapon meta. There are some clear winners that carry over from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but there are other top-tier weapons that might surprise you in battle royale. Of course, the weapon meta constantly shifts as Activision updates the way firearms perform, so we'll make sure to keep this up to date with each new patch.

These are the best Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 4, categorized by weapon type. Keep in mind, some categories will be skipped, as they don't have any viable -- let alone meta -- options at the moment.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that makes a huge difference when going for that elusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.
