How To Collect Eggs On Snapchat

If this is some big April Fool's joke, we're going to be pissed. But, we don't expect that to happen, considering that would only anger users. So, how do you collect eggs on Snapchat for the Easter 2018 egg hunt? How does the Great Snapchat Egg Hunt work?

Well, much like Pokemon Go, which is an augmented reality game much like the Great Snapchat Egg Hunt, users will physically travel to different locations to find eggs within the game. You will receive points for each egg you find and you can even compete with your friends for the top score! So, how do you play and collect the Easter eggs?

  • Open Snapchat

  • Go to Snap Map

  • You will see Easter eggs on your Snap Map

  • You must physically explore and go to the egg on your Snap Map

  • Once you're there, tap the nearby egg on the map

  • A 3-D lens will open on your rear-facing camera and you can take a photo

  • The egg is now added to your basket and you will receive points accordingly

And as always, make sure to stay safe, be aware of your surroundings, and do not trespass.

Can I Still Play The Great Snapchat Egg Hunt In Ghost Mode?

Yes! You can still collect eggs on Snapchat in Ghost Mode. However, you won't show up on any leaderboards. But, if you don't care about that, then don't worry! Just get out there and have fun!

Who Can See My Great Snapchat Egg Hunt Score?

This depends on if you are in Ghost Mode or not. As mentioned above, no one can see your score on leaderboards if you're in Ghost Mode. If not, it looks like only your friends that can see you on Snap Maps already can see your score. So, make sure you're being safe!
