The IO Guards have returned in Fortnite Season 7, so here’s how to find them and claim their IO tech weapons.

Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 brought IO Guards back to the map, and you can take them down to get your hands on their tech weapons. 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, Season 7 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.

There are a total of 10 different IO Guards spawn points around the Fortnite map. They’ll often pop up next to flyable UFOs. It’s well worth landing nearby and fighting them early as each guard drops Gold Bars.

Here are all the IO Guard spawn locations in Fortnite:

  • Corny Complex
  • Dampy Dish
  • Defiant Dish
  • Deep Woods Dish
  • Destined Dish
  • Dinky Dish
  • Dirty Docks
  • Dockside Dish
  • Durr Burger
  • Steamy Stacks

To make things a bit easier, we’ve jotted down all of these locations on the Fortnite map 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.

Week 9 tasks players with completing various extraterrestrial themed challenges, such as placing Bioscanners in Alien Biomes and placing Spy Probes. Here’s where to place the three Spy Probes for the Week 9 Legendary challenges.

Although you only need to plant three, there are at least eight Spy Probes to find around the Fortnite island. These can usually be found on hilltops, where they get a good view of the surrounding area.

They’ll be marked by a blue, translucent object sticking out of the ground. Simply approach it and press your interact button, and you’ll have completed the challenge.
