One of the final challenges you’ll likely aim to complete during Fortnite season 7, week 9 is for carrying an alien sample from a satellite station’s dish to an entrance of Corny Complex. It’s arguably the toughest challenge of the week due to a number of factors — the main one being that you have to escape from a satellite station, which is easier said than done. The challenge description doesn’t necessarily explain what an alien sample is, or where to carry it to, making this one tricky to complete.
Luckily, we’ve got all the details for getting through this challenge with ease. Here’s how to carry an alien sample from a satellite station’s dish to an entrance of Corny Complex in Fortnite.
Where to find an alien sample
Alien samples are found in large crates at the base of satellites. These are located at satellite stations, so use the map above (thanks Fortnite.gg) to see where they are. At first glance, it might be tempting to visit the satellite station just south of Corny Complex since it means you’ll have less ground to cover to complete the challenge, but we advise avoiding this method. This is because the satellite station to the south of Corny Complex is often a high-traffic area, and it can be difficult to make it out alive.
For best results, we’d recommend picking pretty much any other station. Each base has a vehicle you can use to quickly make your escape, so there isn’t much of a downside in this regard. Either way, land at the base of the large satellite and interact with the crate to complete the first part of the challenge.
How to carry it to an entrance at Corny Complex
From there, your aim should be to visit Corny Complex, so hop in a vehicle to get there quickly. The spot you want to visit is the large silo in the center of this area, where you’ll find another crate. However, you’ll want to be cautious because this is one of the most high-traffic spots on the map — due to not just the number of players that come here, but deadly NPCs as well.
It’s not a bad idea to wait until the storm closes in a couple times before making your way to Corny Complex — that way, you’re less likely to come across enemy players. On the west side of the silo is the crate you’ll need to interact with, so make your way there as carefully as possible and you’ll see it on the ground.
