Fortnite - Bouncy Eggs locations: How to forge Bouncy Eggs and earn the Tactical Quaxes explained

Easter has landed on the island!

Foraging Bouncy Eggs is the Easter-themed Legendary Quest in Fortnite Season 6, which will be available for only one week.

If you can find enough of these stripy eggs hidden about the island, then you'll be able to unlock a new harvesting tool, named the Tactical Quaxes.

This quest is also divided into five different stages which will all reward you with XP that will help you unlock new Battle Pass skins.

Bouncy Egg locations in Fortnite explained

Bouncy Eggs can be found across the Fortnite map. When searching for them, you'll want to stay away from landmarks or named locations; focusing, instead, on the fields and hills which lie between these areas.


Thankfully, Bouncy Eggs have fixed locations which means you can play as many matches as you like and always find a cluster of eggs in the same location. This makes the 'Forage Bouncy Eggs hidden around the island' Legendary Quest quite an easy challenge to complete.

Here are some of the Bouncy Egg locations we found:

Each location holds between two to three eggs, which means, if you move quickly, you can complete at least one stage of the Legendary quest per match.

If you visit a location only to find no eggs, then they have already been consumed by another player and you'll probably want to make a run for it, since they might be close.


How to forge Bouncy eggs in Fortnite

Once you've found a collection of Bouncy Eggs in Fortnite, you'll need to forge them to make progress in the Legendary quest and, luckily, there are two ways of achieving this.

The first is to simply eat the eggs off the ground, which will boost your Shield slightly and give you a jump boost for a small period of time.

You'll find the Bouncy Eggs in small clusters.

The second method, however, is to gather the Bouncy Eggs, which will place them in your inventory. This will also count towards the Legendary Quest and allow you to save the eggs for later on in the match.

Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.
