Deploying scanners in the alien biome is the fifth legendary quest for Week 12 of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 and, due to its legendary nature, is only available for a week.
Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass, and begin the final quest for this set - collect three alien devices and activate the countermeasure device underneath the Corny Complex.
Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include red and blue lines on the Fortnite map and Rebuilding quests, including finding and destroying a IO Build Jammer. You can also learn how to get XP fast in Fortnite.
How to deploy scanners in the alien biome in Fortnite explained
When you visit these biomes, you'll easily be able to find the scanner roughly at its centre and all you have to do is activate it.
In the terms of the central biome, the scanner location is a little different, being located on its left-hand side and close to the fork of the river, but there is still one here for you to activate.
It doesn't matter which alien biomes you visit nor the order in which you do so - you simply have to visit two and activate two scanners to complete this legendary quest.
Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.
