The mysterious Dragon Eggs that were discovered in Fortnite Season 7 have re-appeared in Season 8. However, one of the locations is now slightly different from where they had initially been discovered.

The eggs were originally found right at the start of Season 7, buried deep in the snow and ice which was locked around the castle, but as it began to melt, the eggs became visible in-game. 

Many fans initially speculated that the eggs would, in some way, be related to dragons during the previous season, but that was never confirmed – as they went missing towards the backend of Season 7. 

Epic GamesThe new Volcano looks set to play a key role in Season 8.

Now, it appears like they will have something to do with dragons anyway, just a season later than originally thought.


One of the eggs is now located within the Volcano – some distance away from the castle upon Polar Peak. A noticeable change on the egg is that the Dragon-like symbol that could be made out during last season, has become quite clearly displayed.

While no one is quite sure how it got there, it looks likely that whatever is set to happen from with the eggs has now begun. 

Prior to the start of Season 8, Fortnite’s worldwide creative director, Donald Mustard, tweeted the second of the four teaser images for the new season with an egg emoji as his reaction.


That prompted more speculation from fans as to what the mysterious eggs might just mean. Then, only a day later, the third teaser image all but confirmed that dragons would be making some sort of appearance – as the teasing tweet referred to a ‘beast of fire and ash,’ which also alluded to the new Volcano. 

However, the locations of the other two eggs have not yet been discovered.
