In Fortnite Week 5 players must eliminate 50 IO guards scattered across the world. Take a look at how this challenge can be done.
Fortnite Season 5 brought a range of updates to the Royal Battle game, including a newly developed map, new skins and weapons, and much more. One of the most important additions in this season is to include IO Guards who strike players when they are identified. Today, one of week 5’s Fortnite challenges allows players to track and eliminate IO guards on the map.
How are IO guards eliminated in Fortnite Season 5?
Clearly, the elimination of IO guards is one of the toughest tasks that you face this week. A total of 50 IO guards must be eliminated to complete the challenge and win the rewards. The IO Guards appear via their fixed terminals at several locations on the globe. However, if you are not sure where they breed, it can be difficult to locate them. The exact positions of the IO Guards can be found in the following video.
The video above shows multiple positions on the map where the IO guards will be shown. You can get many kills from one spot. If all the guards have been killed, you will move on to the next landmark. You should remember that these NPCs do not spawn at the above places on the map immediately. In this situation, you must step away from the landmark and fall back.
This Fortnite challenge can be accomplished by the players in solos, duos, or squads. It is recommended however that you complete the challenge to save time in duos or squads. You must also make sure you have a strong weapon before using the NPCs. When 50 IO guards are eliminated, you will receive an on-screen message that the challenge was over. You will also be awarded for your efforts 55,000 XP.
