Where to Deploy Scanners in Alien Biomes in Fortnite

Can't win a war without information.

We are now in Week 12 of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7, which means we are facing a new set of legendary challenges. One of the Legendary Challenges this week is to deploy scanners in alien biomes. In the guide below, we explain where you can do this.

The map below shows the majority of the center of the map and the locations of each scanner that can be placed. As you can see, they are all in the small purple sections of terrain that are littered across the island. The best location to complete this quest is in the alien Biomes west of Pleasant Park because of their proximity to each other.

To complete the quest, you only need to place two scanners shown above. As mentioned, the fastest way to complete this quest is at the Alien Biomes near Pleasant Park. However, this is a popular drop point at the start of the match, so if you're looking to avoid battle, it might be best to go to one of the other Biomes, particularly those on the eastern side of the island.

Once you have placed two of the scanners, the quest is complete! From there, you are ready to move on to the sixth and final quest.
