Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 8, brought IO Guards back to the map, and you can take them down to complete various challenges. Here are all the spawn locations for these AI enemies on the Island.

The Imagined Order, IO for short, is an organization that first appeared in Fortnite Season 5. They had several outposts and headquarters around the Island but were then removed for Season 6.

Now, Fortnite Season 8 has brought these enemies back, and you can battle them if you want to get yourself some cool tech weapons. They spawn from elevators around the map and will attack and chase nearby players.

Here are all the spawn locations for IO Guards in Fortnite Season 8.

There are a total of 5 different IO Guards spawn points around the Fortnite map.

It is important to note that if other players get to these Fortnite Season 8 IO Guard locations before you and eliminate them, you will not be able to eliminate them yourself.

You will have to go to another outpost or wait till a new game to have a chance of finding these enemies at the Season 8 Fortnite IO Guards locations.

Here are all the IO Guard spawn locations in Fortnite Season 8 below:

Once you clear out a group of IO Guards, use this map to find the next group to receive more gold to purchase and upgrade weapons. You’ll also be able to get your hands on some cool IO tech weapons.

They take quite a lot of bullets to kill, so fight them from a distance, and they’ll miss the majority of their shots. Once they are knocked, you can give them a shakedown, and they’ll reveal the location of the rest of the IO Guards in their group.

Epic Games added a slide mechanic in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including how to cancel slides during combat.

There are many changes to sort through in Fortnite Chapter 3. We have a new Battle Pass featuring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man as unlockable skins, and some new mechanics to give players an advantage in battle.

One of these allows players to slide across the map while running. This feature has been a part of games like Apex Legends for a long time and is now finally in Fortnite. It’s also fairly easy to pull off during combat.

Here’s everything you need to know about sliding in Fortnite.

How to slide in Fortnite on PlayStation, Xbox, Switch, and PC

You can slide in Fortnite by running and pressing the crouch button. As we said before, this isn’t too difficult to do during combat, and you just need to know which button to press..

Here are the default slide buttons on all platforms:

  • PS4/ PS5: Press the right analogue stick down
  • Xbox One/ Xbox Series X: Press the right analogue stick down
  • Nintendo Switch: Press the right control stick down
  • PC: Press the CTRL key

While this is the default crouch button, it’s important to note that this may not apply if you have changed it in your keybinding settings. So you’ll need to remember what button it is or reset it to the default settings.

Sometimes you might accidentally start sliding when you didn’t intend to, and this could seriously harm you during a gunfight. Luckily, the game lets you cancel the animation by pressing the crouch button a second time.

This will instantly get your character back into the running position. You can only slide down steep slopes such as hills, mountains, and slanting rooftops. Since you can use your weapon while sliding, this can be useful in battles.

You can also change the “slide hold time” when playing on a controller. This changes the duration for which you need to hold the crouch button to get your character to begin sliding.

Epic Games have added the Victory Crown in Fortnite Chapter 3, and here’s everything you need to know about it, including what it does and how to get it.

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 has brought a brand-new Battle Pass that features several unlockable skins like Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson and Spider-Man. There are also new items like Spidey’s Web-Shooters.

Another new feature is the Victory Crown, and players who hold this item will gain some extremely useful benefits. In case you’re wondering what it does and how to get it, we’ve got you covered.

Here’s everything you need to know about the Victory Crown.

What is the Victory Crown in Fortnite?

As the name implies, the Victory Crown can be worn on your head when you’re on Fortnite Island. It is a new feature that provides its wearers with some neat rewards that will make it highly sought-after.

If you’ve got the Victory Crown then you’ll receive bonus XP during the match while wearing it. If you win a game while you have it on then you’ll get an altered Victory Royale screen where a Crown is added on top of the text.

You will also get an exclusive emote that shows you the amount of Crowned Victory Royales that you earn when playing Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1. So, wearing the Victory Crown definitely has its advantages.

Victory Crowns will automatically be awarded to the top few players in a game. You can get it when playing Solo, Duos, Trios, and Squads, but you’ll need to play extremely well to succeed.

Once you’ve got one, you’ll start your next match wearing the Victory Crown. This is risky because it makes you a target for other players that will attempt to eliminate you and steal it for themselves.

You’ll need to fight to defend the Crown from enemies, so there is a great degree of risk associated with it. If you wish to avoid that, then you can simply drop the Victory Crown item.

While Spider-Man has arrived in Fortnite, Epic Games scheduled the release of his Mythic Web-Shooters for December 11 at 10 AM ET. However, some players have purchased them early from an NPC.

Here’s how you can get them:

  1. Hop into Fortnite Chapter 3
  2. Head over to Greasy Grove
  3. Talk to an NPC named Guaco
  4. Select the option to purchase the Spider-Man Mythic Web-Shooters
  5. Confirm the purchase

These will cost you 400 Gold Bars, so we recommend saving up that amount by completing Quests and challenges on the Island. You can also check out our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

Currently, it’s not clear why the Web-Shooters are available ahead of schedule or for how long they will remain in the game. That’s why we recommend you go purchase them as soon as you can.

While it’s fun to swing around as Spider-Man, you can still use the Web-Shooters when playing with any outfit. They serve as a great way for you to get around Fortnite’s island quickly and stylishly.

Epic Games have confirmed that as Chapter 3 progresses, we’ll see the addition of more Spider-Men along with a few friends and foes in the Item Shop. So, there will be a ton of fun Spidey content for fans to enjoy.
