From placing spy probes on the map to disabling alien billboards, players have their hands full when it comes to the weekly challenges. However, one of the Week 9 Epic Quests requires players to find an alien sample on the island and deliver it to Corny Complex.

The quest, the most challenging task of the batch, is a direct order for Doctor Slone as she attempts to figure out more about the aliens. Epic Games ensures that the challenges fulfill the storyline for Fortnite Season 7 and this week is no different. But, if players don’t know where to look, finding an alien sample is like looking for a needle in a haystack.

The first part of the quest is to physically locate the alien sample. These are located at the IO base satellite stations around the map. There are seven of the stations in total but players would be wise to pick one that’s closer to Corny Complex. After all, the second part of the challenge is to deliver the sample to the Fortnite POI.

Once players have picked a satellite station, they can find the alien sample inside of the building with the largest satellite dish. The sample is found in a safe or briefcase inside of the building. Once players have the sample, they must make it to Corny Complex without dying.

Players can either take a vehicle or walk there. However, as long as the sample gets delivered to the entrance of Corny Complex, the challenge will be complete. This challenge rewards players with 30,000 XP for their Season 7 Battle Pass.
