Fortnite - Hatchery locations: Construct a wooden hatchery explained

It's time to hatch an alien...

Construct a wooden hatchery is the first of Week 7's legendary quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

Since this is a legendary quest, you must complete it before the next set appears or you won't be able to collect the XP it earns. This quest also continues the alien invasion storyline and allows you to complete the next challenge - mark an alien egg.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 45k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass.

How to construct a wooden hatchery in Fortnite

When it comes to constructing a wooden hatchery in Fortnite, you first need to decide where you're going to build it.

There are three locations to choose from on the Fortnite map - in a cottage past the mountains east of Catty Corner, on the island west of Craggy Cliffs and south of Slurpy Swamp.

You can find a hatchery in each of these three locations.

You can easily check where the hatcheries can be built by checking your in-game map and then selecting this challenge from the Quest section.

Once you've decided upon your location, you need to collect 50 Wood by either destroying nearby trees, buildings or objects. After you've collected this Wood, head back to the location of the hatchery and build it to complete this legendary quest.

With this legendary quest completed, you can now mark an alien egg.
