How to complete the alien sample challenge is a question that many players are asking at the moment as they try to complete the Week 9 Epic Challenges in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

In addition to eliminating trespassers and placing spy probes, Epic Games and Doctor Slone have tasked players with carrying an alien sample from a Satellite Station's Dish to an entrance of Corny Complex for Week 9. Here's how to complete the alien sample Week 9 Challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

How to Complete the Alien Sample Challenge in Fortnite

This challenge is super straightforward and easy to accomplish solo within one game—as long as players know where to go.

First things first, the alien sample can be found near the eight places on the map that have the satellite dishes, which are also the areas players want to go in order to complete the IO Vehicle and IO Launchpad Week 9 Epic Challenges.

For the purposes of this challenge, we recommend players to head over to the unnamed Satellite Station on the eastern part of the battle island by the Dirty Docks POI since its the closest to Corny Complex.

Once you're in close proximity of the station, land near the base of the satellite. There will a glowing black box there that you have to interact with to get the alien sample.

Lastly, with the alien sample on your back, simply make your way over to Corny Complex via the IO Launchpad or by car. There, a similar glowing black box will be open and ready for you to interact with and deliver the alien sample.

Just like that, another 30,000 XP is in the bag for the Season 7 Battle Pass.
