The next set of Fortnite The challenges are ready for you to complete, this time season 7, week 13. The new challenges have a little more depth than you might be used to, but they’re not necessarily difficult. Even so, you probably won’t make progress for many of them unless you do so intentionally, which means you’ll need to put in more effort than usual. One of the first things you might need help with is asking you to repair the IO device.
These are items found around the map at fixed locations and are often difficult to obtain due to the excessive amount of enemy AI around them. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you need to know about completing this new challenge. This is how to repair the IO device in Fortnite.
There are three IO stations around the map containing the IO device. The map above shows all of their locations (thanks, Fortnite.gg). There’s one in Stealth Stronghold, one in between Craggy Cliffs and Steamy Stacks, and the last one south of Misty Meadows by the mountains. To complete this challenge, you need to visit one of these locations to repair two IO devices. Locations have multiple devices, meaning you only need to go to one station to complete the challenge.
As always, we recommend visiting a location away from the Battle Bus so you’re less likely to encounter other players. Every IO station has an enemy AI that will try to take you down, so we recommend going with a team so they can keep an eye on you. And as usual, you should try this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you get knocked out.
Once you land, we recommend getting some gear so you’re prepared to defend yourself if need be. Shields, weapons and ammo are always good. From here, you’re looking for a set of monitors on wheels like the one pictured above. They are scattered around each base, so do your best to look for the glowing indicator. Reach and then press square on PlayStation, NS on Xbox and Y on Nintendo Switch to repair the device.
Once you’ve repaired two of them, you’ll get credits for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP. One thing to keep in mind is that if you only repair one device in a match, you can retry it in a separate match to repair the last one since your progress continues.
