Once again, the Legendary Quests tell more of the alien invasion story this week. For reasons unknown, Bushranger has assigned you with nesting and hatching alien eggs. Apparently it's out of some (perhaps misplaced) sense of peace and happiness, which the hippie-dippie treeperson is known to exhibit. Find our step-by-step guides on some of the more taxing of these story-driven quests in the links above. You can construct a wooden hatchery at the island northwest of Craggy Cliffs, the same one highlighted below which you may choose to return to for a the later campfire quest.
To stoke campfires near different hatcheries, head to the three locations marked on the map below. There you'll find small cabins with campfires outside of them. Remember that stoking a campfire takes 30 wood after you've lit it (which is free the first time), so make sure to have that on hand. If the campfire is extinguished before it's stoked, it'll cost 200 wood to reignite it. You can also find more campfires near hatcheries within the woods of Weeping Woods in order to finish off this challenge.
To mark an alien egg, use the ping button (left on D-Pad) when you're targeting any alien egg. You can find these plentifully inside Holly Hatchery, as well as in the basement of Durrr Burger which is southeast of Holly Hatchery.
Moving onto Epic Quests, which will arrive a day after the Legendary Quests if you're jumping on these right away, it's a mix of some rote actions and a few more particular ones. To use a Recon Scanner, find one most reliably inside any satellite station. If you fire the Recon Scanner within a few meters of an enemy player, it will ping them on your screen for a few seconds, like a UAV in some other shooters.
To visit Misty Meadows, Catty Corner, and Camp Cod in a single match, you may want a vehicle even as they're quite close to each other. You'll find cars at all three spots, but it's easiest to start at Misty Meadows if you'll be traveling this way. From there, head east to Catty Corner, which is also marked on your map by default, before heading south to the small island--that's Camp Cod. Because Camp Cod is likely to be stuck outside the first Storm circle, you may want to start there instead, then travel to the next two locations according to which way the Storm will push you.
Unless this is your first time playing, you already know how to search ammo boxes. If you need a bit of help, they often spawn behind staircases in two-story or taller buildings. Be sure to actually search them and not break them open, or else they won't count. To defeat Riot, refer to our Season 7 NPC guide. You'll find and defeat Riot at the Yellow Steel Bridge which rests between Misty Meadows and Catty Corner. The punk rocker Riot is one of several NPCs who are hostile by default, so don't wait to fire first or he'll beat you to it.
To close out this week's challenges, you'll need to find a Ferrari 296 GTB--the game's newest and fastest land vehicle--and perform a few tricks with it. You can find Ferrari cars randomly spawning all over the map in any given round, but they're reliably parked at Lazy Lake, which is also where you can complete one of three Ferrari time trials, though early on in the week, this is proving to be a very hotly contested drop zone, so you may be best looking south of Holly Hedges on the winding road, where you'll find two other time trials and far fewer players competing for the scarce supercars.
To reach top speed in a Ferrari, you just need to get it to 88 MPH--surely a Back To The Future reference. You can do this by using the car's boost ability while on paved roads. To drive a Ferrari through the Storm, simply take the car into the Storm, which will cost you some HP but earn you a cool 30,000 XP.
Finishing off this list will earn you hundreds of thousands of XP and help you power through the Season 7 Battle Pass. For more on Fortnite, don't miss the game's Rainbow Royale celebration, as well as the 17.20 patch notes.
