With the beginning of Fortnite Season 7, Week 5 features a whole new set of challenges for you to test your list. This week, many of the challenges are fairly simple, meaning you can complete them as you play naturally. However, one of the final challenges you’ll likely go through this week is opening an IO chest at a satellite station or the Corny Complex. These IO chests are not marked on the map, making it very difficult to figure out where to go.
Luckily, we already have the locations of all the IO chests on the map, along with the satellite stations. In this guide, we’ll show you how to complete the challenge, along with tips to make it as easy as possible. This is the place to open an IO chest at a satellite station or the Corny Complex in Fortnite.
The cool thing about this challenge is that the IO chests appear in the same spot in every match. This eliminates the need to wander aimlessly looking for them as you play. Above is a map of all IO chest locations (thanks, Fortnite.gg). Since many of these locations are often crowded, we recommend choosing a location on the outskirts of the map, away from central crowded areas, if possible. You should also try this challenge in Team Rumble so you can come back if you are eliminated.
We strongly recommend landing near IO chests and looting first as there are often NPCs (and possibly other players) around the area. You can certainly create a straight chest line, but depending on how familiar you are with the placement, this may be easier said than done.
After you’ve landed and logged in, head towards the IO chest. If you have Visualize sound effects enabled, you can easily spot the chests by following the indicator on the screen. Enabling this setting will also help you spot enemies, which is never a bad thing, no matter what you’re trying to do. IO chests are wider than regular chests and often hold more good loot, so they’re definitely worth opening, even if you’re not particularly up for this challenge.
For the purposes of the challenge, you only need to open one IO chest, meaning you can complete the objective in minutes, depending on the objective you choose to visit. After opening the chest, you will complete the challenge and earn 30,000 XP for your troubles.
