A new set of weekly legendary challenges in Fortnite requires players to deploy scanners in Alien Biomes.

Each week, players are given a new set of weekly Legendary challenges. Completing these challenges rewards players with a massive amount of XP. However, Legendary challenges are only available for 7 days.

That means you will have to complete all six challenges within a week to get the most XP. Some challenges can be difficult, while others are fairly easy.

Legendary challenges often follow a storyline that changes from week to week. This week, it seems Doctor Slone is preparing to make a move against the aliens. In order to do so, Slone needs you to deploy scanners in Alien Biomes.

Fortnite Alien Biome Locations

In order to complete this Legendary challenge, players will have to deploy two scanners. Luckily, there are six scanner locations for players to choose from. However, they aren’t all close together.

All players will need for this challenge is to know where the Alien Biomes are in Fortnite. These are not referring to the abduction sites or the low-gravity fields. Neither is it talking about Abductors or invaded POIs.

Alien Biomes have been a part of Season 7 from the very beginning. They are the small purple areas dotted around the map. There isn’t much going on at each one, but no players have a reason to visit them.

Players will not need a Recon Scanner. All they will need to do is approach the holographic scanner at each location. The map below shows all six Alien Biomes.

The quickest way to complete the challenge is by landing near Pleasant Park. From here, there are two Alien Biomes relatively close to the Pleasant Park scanner.

Players can head south of Pleasant Park for a shorter but more dangerous trek. Or they can head east across the river to a more remote scanner.

Once two scanners have been deployed, players will earn 30k XP. With Fortnite Season 7’s end nearing, players will want to earn as much XP as they can. Especially if they want to earn every exclusive cosmetic.

All crashed IO Airship locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 4 challenges are here. Here’s how players search chests or ammo boxes at crashed IO Airships.

Crashed IO Airship Fortnite

Following the war in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, the map now has several crashed IO Warships with a Vibin’ theme. A weekly challenge requires you to visit these Airships and search for ammo boxes or chests.

A new set of Weekly quests arrive in Fortnite every Thursday. Loopers can get 15,000 XP from each quest and there are bonus rewards for completing them all. These challenges do not leave the quests menu until the end of the season, but considering that they are quite simple, it is more convenient to complete them right away.

Where to find crashed IO Airships in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

There are a total of five crashed IO Airships on the map. To complete the weekly challenge, you need to find two ammo boxes/chests. Hence, landing at any of the following locations should be worthwhile:

Northeastern Edge of the map

The first IO Airship in Fortnite is located on the northeastern edge of the island. Loopers can either land near Daily Bugle and swim towards the ship or directly land there.

It is safe to assume that this will be one of the least-contested crashed IO Airships. Even though there aren’t any fixed chest/ammo box spawn locations, finding one shouldn’t be a major problem.

The southeastern edge of the map

Another IO Warship can be found in the ocean at the southeastern edge of the island. Condo Canyon is the nearest named location but depending on the Battle Bus’ path, you can directly land at the location marked in the image below:

Rocky Reels

A crashed IO Warship is located near Rocky Reels. You can either land in Greasy Grove and head east or land at Rocky Reels and head west. It is worth reiterating that the challenge requires players to open a chest/ammo box in the ship, and not just visit it.

Loot Lake

Towards the end of the war between the Imagined Order and The Seven, the final IO Airship crashed inside Loot Lake which is currently one of the best locations on the island in terms of loot.

It won’t be a surprise if you meet a ton of other loopers when landing at this Airship as Loot Lake has an abundance of chests.

Southeast of Coney Crossroads

The fifth and final IO Airship is near Coney Crossroads which is also one of the most crowded locations in Fortnite. This airship will at least have one chest and one ammo box, and you can also expect floor loot here.

Completing this Week 4 challenge will grant you 15,000 XP which eventually helps in leveling up the Battle Pass. The Chapter 3 Season 3 Battle Pass is loaded with exciting original and crossover skins including the likes of Evie and Darth Vader.

Fortnite Fall Guys event leaked: How to complete Crown Clash challenges

Fall Guys is one of the most popular Battle Royale games that went viral ever since its release due to its healthy gameplay and exciting obstacle based games. Its collaboration with Fortnite has been teased for over a year and leaks show that it is finally arriving in the form of an in-game event with challenges that offer rewards to those who participate in it.

The collaborations between Fortnite and several video games always keeps the player base at their feet as they wait for their favorite characters to enter the loop. Moreover these collabs result in either in-game items, challenges or Item Shop cosmetics that loopers do not hesitate spending their precious V-Bucks on.

From Street Fighter to God of War, players have seen characters from various franchises arrive to the Gaming Legends series of cosmetics to the Item Shop. Most recently, players saw a brief collab with Among Us cosmetics, as the game finally arrived to Epic Games store a while ago.

However, the collab only consisted of a Back Bling and an emote which was rather disappointing but fans still bought the cosmetics from the Item Shop, given the game’s popularity. Now that Fall Guys is free on Epic Games Store, the collab between the two is arriving in Fortnite with certain challenges that rewards the participants with in-game cosmetics.

How to complete Fall Guys Crown Clash Challenges in Fortnite Season 3

Fortnite x Fall Guys collab is set to enter Fortnite on June 29 in-game with the release of Crown Clash Challenges. The challenges will go on until July 11 which means players will have less than a couple weeks to complete all the challenges and claim their rewards.

Players would need to complete these challenges in 5 rounds. This might suggest that these challenges would take place in a Creative map rather than the traditional Battle Royale approach.

Loopers who complete these in Fortnite will get 5 free cosmetics right in their locker which will only be exclusive to those completing all the challenges. Moreover, if players have their Epic ID linked to their Fall Guys account, they will receive 3500 Kudos after the completion of these challenges, in their Fall Guys account to spend in-game.

However, the challenges also seem to affect the points one could get in Rocket League, as per the leaks. Although, this might be a possibility as Rocket League cars were spotted in a leak to appear soon in the Fortnite island back again.

Fortnite Season 3 has introduced players to several new features, a new UI and a more colorful island to drop in. One of these most awaited and heavily rumored features was Social Tags. Now that it’s finally here, players are loving how it adds their in-game personality to their profile.

Loopers are enjoying every bit about the latest Chapter 3 Season 3. From ballers, exciting new POIs, the brand new Reality Sapling loot system, all the new additions accompany one another in a perfect manner.

However, the user interface options in Fortnite have stayed stagnant for a long period of time and required a major overhaul with the evolution of the gameplay. With the addition of Explore and game playlists options earlier this year, Epic showed its player base about the potential of what Fortnite can be.

In addition to all these features, something felt missing that allowed players to connect with other active players who have similar interests and the way they play Fortnite. Enter Social Tags which were added in the most recent v21.10 update. Here’s what they are and how you can use them.

Use Social Tags to define your choices and find similar players in Fortnite

Social Tags in Fortnite are basically name tags you can add to your Fortnite profile on the sidebar section. These tags signify how you play Fortnite and you can get recommendations on the Explore Menu of similar experiences.

If you enjoy a certain Battle Royale or Creative mode, you can add a tag for it. One player at max, can add 3 tags to their profile. It could be a mix of Creative, Battle Royale which bbasically have gameplay modes and Miscellaneous which has more options like Chill, Quests, Mic On etc.

To apply Social Tags to your profile, do the following steps:

  1. Click on your profile icon in the left sidebar.
  2. Select +Add Tag option on your profile.
  3. Add social tags from the list available there.
  4. Save and confirm the selected tags. (Max 3)

Once assigned, they will show up on your profile and would tell others how you choose to play Fortnite. Furthermore, you can head to Looking For A Party option on the left sidebar, right above settings to search for random players who play Fortnite the way you do.

It will then show a list of players who are active currently in-game and are in the lobby with how many players. Moreover, you can send them a party invite or a request to join your party. You can also choose to turn off this option.

This feature promotes healthy connectivity between players who play Fortnite in a similar way and helps prevent toxicity between Casuals and Sweats in the game. Additionally, it creates a healthy divide between the two communities if one enjoys grinding Arenas while others purely enjoy Public matches.
