Where to place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome in Fortnite (Week 9 Legendary Quest)

As part of the Fortnite Week 9 Legendary quests, you'll need to place a bioscanner in an alien biome so that we can start to learn more about the aliens ahead of the impending battle.

We'll tell you where you need to place the bioscanner and how you'll do it.

Where to place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome

There are a few different spots in a single POI where you can place the Bioscanner to complete the quest. All of the locations are within Holly Hatchery which was the first POI to become a low-gravity area or Alien Biome.

There are four possible locations to place the bioscanner and each one is indicated by the small blue silhouette where you need to place it. Three of the bioscanner locations are out in the open but one, the North-East location, is inside the garage.

To place the bioscanner, just approach and interact with any of the bioscanner locations. Only one needs to be placed to complete the quest, so if Holly Hatchery is a bit busy while you're there, you can cut and run once one is placed.


The above video from RutgerK on YouTube shows you how to complete the quest if you're still struggling.

Once complete, the quest is wrapped up and 30,000 XP is all yours. This is the penultimate quest of week 9 so in completing it, you only have one more to go. The week 9 Legendary quest list is as follows;

  • Get Slone's orders from a Payphone
  • Equip a Detector, then disable an Alien Billboard in one match
  • Collect resources in Holly Hatchery
  • Eliminate Trespassers
  • Place a Bioscanner in an Alien Biome
  • Place Spy Probes

Once you complete all of the Legendary quests, you can then move on to the Epic quests where 210,000 XP is up for grabs.
