Fortnite - Bioscanner locations: Where to place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome explained


The alien invasion is getting out of hand. Now, it's time to place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome in Fortnite.

Place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome is the fifth of Week 9's legendary quests in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

Such as the past few weeks, the first quest in this set involves using one of the payphones across the Fortnite map, and it's followed with the task to equip a Detector, then disable an Alien Billboard in one match, as well as collect resources in Holly Hatchery and eliminate Trespassers.

This is a rather straightforward challenge, but only if you know exactly where to look beforehand. You only need to place one Bioscanner, thankfully, so it won't take too long to complete by following our guide.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 7 battle pass. You'll also be able to start the sixth legendary quest for Week 9 - place Spy Probes.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

In order to complete this challenge, you'll have to head towards Holly Hatchery. We recommend to just land from the battle bus onto this location to save as much time as possible.

Upon arrival, there are multiple spots where you can place a Bioscanner. You can find the locations of three of them at a glance below:

The first is located in the western side. There's a lone house at the side of the road - you will see a Bioscanner spot next to a tree in its backyard.

There's another one close to the centre of the area. You'll find it close to the east side of the big alien site in the middle, overlooking a fountain right before a massive tree.

Lastly, there is a third spot on the southern house of the area. You can place a Bioscanner on the other side of the backyard fence on the right side of the house.

That should be all! While there are plenty of options, remember that you only need to place one Bioscanner, so just head towards whichever is the closest to finish this promptly.

With this challenge completed, you can go ahead and place Spy Probes to complete the sixth and final quest for this week.
