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.

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, Fortnite.gg). 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.

Stardew Valley gift guide: the best gifts for every villager
A wedding in Stardew Valley. The player characters is marrying Haley, who's in a bridal gown. They're standing underneath an arch with all the townsfolk watching.

The residents of Pelican Town are friendly enough when you begin a new farming adventure in Stardew Valley, but you need to do some work to really earn their affection.

You have an individual affection level with each that can be raised primarily in two ways: doing quests for them and giving them gifts. The latter option is far faster and more efficient, but also riskier. Unlike some other games, each character in Stardew Valley has gifts they like and love but also feel nothing for as well as dislike or hate. Giving a bad gift to a character you're hoping to romance will only set you back. Let's open our journals and make sure we know the best gifts for each villager in town.

When does the new Fortnite season start?

Every new season in Fortnite is a massive event. While not quite on the scale of a new Chapter, seasons still bring about a ton of changes to the ever-evolving battle royale phenomenon to keep players engaged. New skins, abilities, missions, weapons, and a new battle pass to complete are just the tip of the iceberg in terms of new content. If one season doesn't quite hit for you, or if you've already crushed all the content there was and are eagerly awaiting the next season's start, knowing when to mark your calendar is essential. Let's dive into when you can expect the next season of Fortnite to begin.When does the next Fortnite season start?We are currently in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2, meaning the next season will be Chapter 5 Season 3. The season will roll over at 2 a.m PT on May 24, 2024. Keep in mind that there is always a period of downtime between seasons as Epic updates the game and gets it ready for whatever new content and themes will be included. So while that 2 a.m. time should be accurate for when the season will end, we can't be 100% certain about when the servers will be back up and you can actually start playing season 3. We have no official word on what the next Fortnite season's theme will be, nor have there been any credible leaks. If we hear anything on what to expect on May 24, we will keep you in the loop.

Sea of Thieves alliances guide: how to join and benefits
Two ships fighting in Sea of Thieves.

There are ways in which you could play as a solo pirate in Sea of Thieves, but adventuring is so much more fun and rewarding when you're part of a crew. Once you've gotten a handle on how to play the game, taking on voyages and attacking other players with fellow pirates is where the real fun begins. Alliances make it much easier to coordinate and team up with your fellow scallywags, but how you form them and all the benefits they can provide are somewhat obfuscated. It isn't as simple as joining a party through a menu like in other games, so follow our treasure map to learn all about how alliances work in Sea of Thieves.
How to join or start an alliance

Alliances aren't made in menus, but require you to do some work in-game. Just like real pirates, alliances are determined by what flag you're flying. When you're sailing near a ship you want to partner up with, climb up your crow's nest and interact with the flag box. Go to the Alliances tab and choose the Offer Alliance flag. If the other ship is also flying that flag, you can then change your flag to the Join Alliance flag to fully form the alliance. There is no limit on how many ships can be in an alliance at once in one game.
