Knowing where to find a Fortnite alien egg will really help you out, whether you're trying to destroy them or mark one for an outstanding quest. It's also good to find a source of these eggs as they each produce a Fortnite alien parasite, which can turbo-charge your abilities if you allow it to attach itself to your head. They may not be around for too much longer, as the battle against the alien forces in Fortnite is about to come to a head, so now could be your last chance to find a Fortnite alien egg.

While you can trust this to luck – the odds have improved as the number of spots where eggs spawn has been increasing – you might want to improve your chances if you're having problems finding an unhatched egg of your own to claim. So we've got a few options and locations here, to make it easier to find a Fortnite alien egg and destroy or mark it.

Fortnite alien egg locations

You'll find Fortnite alien eggs you can destroy scattered all around the map in the places we've tagged above, but it can be a bit random. If you want to guarantee you'll find a decent number when you drop in to save time looking then head to one of these locations, depending on where the Storm allows:

Otherwise known as Holly Hedges when the aliens haven't taken over, you'll find alien eggs here you can shoot to bits. We found ours around the outside of the central alien biome building.

You'll find some Fortnite alien eggs in Hydro 16, in the main building below the dam hanging from the overhead walkways. Make sure you go in at the ground level or you can hatch the eggs by accident if you walk over them.

If you find yourself unable to land near either of these places then don't worry, as we've marked plenty of other possible locations you can visit. You can also improve your chances of finding a Fortnite alien egg by looking and listening out for Fortnite chickens. An infected chicken will actually lay alien eggs, so if you can find one, and stay near it without drawing its attention then you should see it eventually lay an egg. Just be carefully not to get too close as if it attacks you'll either end up killing it, or having the alien parasite jump ship to sit on your head. Which, while it means you get groovy alien powers, you'll lose the egg laying chicken.
