Well, looks like we’re gearing up to raise aliens in this week’s episode of Fortnite: battle royale legendary challenges. You have to build a hatchery, stock up on advice books, and so on – we’ll see where it’s going, I guess, but for now the story is clear. One thing that can be a bit confusing is how to tag an alien egg, so let’s clear that up.
Alien eggs can be found all over the map, and the game recommends that you go to Holly Hatchery to do so. This place is a mess, however, and I couldn’t achieve the goal there. A better place to go is right next to Aftermath, where there is a couple scattered around. Just look here:
Once there, however, you might be a little confused as to how to do this. “Flagging” in this case is just the standard ping, not some kind of interaction: getting close enough to any of these things to do something about it is inherently impossible. But all you need to do is point your reticle at the egg and hit the ping button – it’s the middle mouse button on PC. Do this to continue the quest.
We’ll see how it goes: are we going to hatch our own alien companion? How would that even work, in a legendary quest ability? For now, that’s a fun little storytelling element to these quests, and I still love when it works that way. Check back for more.
