If you’ve ever participated in Snapchat’s Easter egg hunt, then you’ll know why users are fighting for it to return. It would be a huge blow on users if the social networking platform decided to let of this event this year. We’ll we’re here to find out what’s really going to happen.
April is upon us and a lot of users still have not idea of what the event is going to be like this year. However, the quarantining of 2020 couldn’t stop the hunt so I see no reason why we shouldn’t be searching for eggs this year.
The popularly known Great Snapchat Egg Hunt was turned out to be a hit last year. We all are praying for the event to come again this year.
What is Snapchat Easter egg hunt?
In this event, players use their phone’s location services to hunt down eggs through Snapchat’s Snap Map. In this case, users hunt for eggs in real life to collect as many points as possible. Coloured eggs are worth 1 point, while shiny eggs are worth 5 points each.
Through your phone’s camera, you can see virtual eggs pop up on the map as you move around. On the Snap Map, you can collect eggs with just a tap. Also, you get to come across “Chicks”. As you tap on one, you get access to a mini-game which gives you the opportunity of earning 10 extra points.
Your score, along with the global score and your friends’ score, is in the top right corner of the Snap Map, but there’s no need to worry about your privacy.
When does the Snapchat 2021 egg hunt begin?
In a recent interview with Snapchat, here’s what we know so far:
“It’s time to fill your basket because this year we’re hunting for eggs from home! We’re encouraging everyone to stay put and practice physical distancing. Collect as many eggs as you can by April 12th without leaving your home!”
So just sit back and relax till the day comes. Have fun everyone. Happy Easter!
