Fortnite: How to carry an alien sample from a Satellite Station's Dish to an entrance of Corny Complex explained

Alien stranding.

Carry an alien sample from a Satellite Station's Dish to an entrance of Corny Complex is one of this week's epic quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

This challenge went live during Week 9 of this season, joining other epic quests such as dance on an abductor or as a passenger on a saucer and launch toilets with a Grab-itron.

This one in particular asks you carry an alien sample from a number of IO bases to Corny Complex, which is a rather popular location in the Fortnite map.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP to help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. So what's changed since? Check out the Fortnite Season 8 Battle Pass skins, the new Fortnite map changes and the Victory Umbrella.

How to carry an alien sample from a Satellite Station's Dish to an entrance of Corny Complex in Fortnite fast

The quest's name is a mouthful for sure, but the steps themselves are not as long. First, you'll have to head towards any of the IO bases in the game, and grab the alien sample.

There is a total of eight IO bases where you can find the sample. At a glance, you can find the locations below:


Now, while it's great to have plenty of options to choose from, you will then have to carry the sample all the way to Corny Complex in one piece. For this, we recommend heading to the IO base that is southeast of our destination to make it a fast trip (the IO base southeast of Craggy Cliffs is a good alternative, too).

Once you arrive, head to the big satellite to find a suitcase right next to it. Interact with the prompt to grab the alien sample, which will automatically hop onto your back.


From here, we recommend grabbing one of the IO cars in the base. Even if it happens to be at 40% of fuel or so, you won't need to take it to a gas station as the trip is fairly quickly.

Take the bridge or just drive through the river to get to the other side, and head towards the centre of Corny Complex.


The big silo has an entrance on plain sight that leads to the underground base. Right next to it is another suitcase, but this one is already opened. All you have to do is interact with the prompt and the epic quest will be completed right afterwards!

Keep an eye on your surroundings in case you spot the new weapon, which you can then use to complete the launch toilets with the Grab-itron quest. If you're up for a new set of challenges, find out how to interact with the Rift Tour posters and how to use an Alien Hologram Pad on top of the Party UFO.
