Fortnite Loot Chickens Guide – Chicken Locations, How To Open a Vault

Fortnite Loot Chickens Guide - Chicken Locations, How To Open a Vault

The Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 1 continues rampant. After completing tasks such as feeding Klombos and driving Quadcrashers, the latest event called Avian Ambush Week is focused on chickens. There is a long list of challenges to parse through, including the involvement of the new Fortnite loot chickens, and this guide explains where you can find chicken locations to complete them all.

Where to Find Chicken Locations in Fortnite

The good news is that it shouldn’t be hard to find chicken locations in Fortnite, as developer Epic Games has increased their spawn rate, vaulting other animals (such as wolves and sharks) in the process. The safest bet is to head over to open fields, but there are a few spots that are worth checking first.

You can find Fortnite chicken locations in the following areas:

South of Shifty Shafts
North of Coney Crossroads
West of Greasy Grove
Around Chonker’s Speedway

Again, these serve mostly as referential guidance. You won’t have trouble finding chickens around to complete the quests, even if you head to the aforementioned spots and just look around them in the fields. There is also a chance of stumbling upon chickens crossing the road, but don’t ask me why.

Fortnite Avian Ambush Week Quests List

Below are all the Fortnite Avian Ambush Week quests:

Throw chickens (5 total — they have to be different chickens)
Slide for 30 meters continuously while holding a chicken
Open a Vault while holding a chicken
Hunt a Loot Chicken or Crow (2 total)
Fly with a chicken for 20 meters in a single flight
Catch a chicken in different matches (3 total)
Bounce on a tire, umbrella, or Web Bouncer 3 consecutive times while holding a chicken

Most of the quests are fairly straightforward, but there are two in particular that can prove troublesome.

Where to Find Fortnite Loot Chickens

With the introduction of the Avian Ambush Week event, there are now loot chickens to find in Fortnite. They look just like the regular type, but they have a distinct glow that differentiates them. Killing a loot chicken grants you, well, random loot, the rarity of which matches the chicken glow’s color. Once more, the spawn is completely random, but I got lucky in a specific location.

You can find Fortnite loot chickens north of Chonker’s Speedway. I saw one that was roaming the area, while another time there was one around the race track. If you head to this location, there are plenty of chickens around to complete the bounce on a tire, umbrella, or Web Bouncer 3 consecutive times while holding a chicken quest.

Sorry, it’s nothing personal.

After you find a loot chicken, take it down for the quest. If you happen to find a Crow, you can go ahead and shoot it as well, as they both count for the quest.

How to Open a Vault While Holding a Chicken in Fortnite

This mechanic has been present in Fortnite Season 3 Chapter 1 for a while now, but in case you haven’t done it yet, it’s a simple process.

There are multiple locations to open a Vault while holding a Chicken in Fortnite, but I recommend heading to the Vault in Greasy Grove. The reason is that I found plenty of chickens nearby, which made it easier to take one of them with me.

Fortnite Loot Chickens 5

Once you’re carrying a chicken, you need to go inside the settlement. The device that is on the circle surrounded by rift portals isn’t the one you need. Instead, go inside the building and head down the stairs — this is the usual rule for any other base if you’re looking for the Vault.

Afterwards, you’re going to stumble upon a closed door with a reader that has a lock above it. Stand still for a couple seconds for the scanner to read the chicken.

Once the lock appears opened and the color changes to green, you’re all set. The Vault is going to open right after, where you can find three IO chests with loot. As such, I really recommend for you to land directly to Greasy Grove at the start of a match to complete the quest, grab some great equipment, and be all set to either continue with other quests or just start the match with an advantage.
