We’ll keep you posted about all the new monthly Fortnite Crew rewards and their prices, continuing in May, as they’re announced, so be sure to check back with us soon.

How to equip a Detector & disable Alien billboards for Fortnite Quests

Here’s where you can find Detectors and disable Alien billboards for Fortnite’s Season 7 Week 9 Legendary Quest.

It’s another week, which means there are new Fortnite Quests to complete! One of the more difficult tasks in the new set wants players to find and equip a Detector, then disable an Alien Billboard.

Fortnite’s 17.30 update officially kicked off another week in Fortnite, introducing the highly-anticipated Grab-itron weapon, and setting the stage for Ariana Grande’s Rift Tour concert.

While there weren’t many map changes of note, one thing that eagle-eyed Fortnite fans will have noticed is the appearance of billboards, which the Aliens have programmed to say “SUBMIT” whenever a player gets close.

Now, it’s up to you to stop the Alien’s message to players by finding and equipping a Detector and then disabling the billboards.

Here’s everything you need to complete Week 9’s Legendary quest.

Where to find and equip a Detector in Fortnite

The good news is that finding the Detectors are relatively easy, as they are all located in named Fortnite locations where there is also a billboard.

There are seven locations where players can head, which are:

  • Believer Beach
  • Boney Burbs
  • Craggy Cliffs
  • Lazy Lake
  • Misty Meadows
  • Pleasant Park
  • Retail Row

Once you choose a location to land at, you’re looking for a black crate somewhere in the area. The boxes are found outside somewhere, so don’t worry about searching every building you see.

Once you spot it, simply head over and interact with it. You’ll then be able to equip the Detector and start the second part of this quest.

The final part of this challenge is pretty straightforward. Once you have your Detector equipped, look for the billboard which has been planted in the area, walk over to it, and interact with it. The billboards are usually just outside the POI, but they’re big enough that you should spot them pretty easily.

It’s important to note that this challenge doesn’t track across multiple games, which means you must complete both parts in the same match. If you get the Detector but die before you get to the billboard, you’ll need to start from scratch.

It’s well worth taking on this Quest though, as the XP reward will help you rank up your Season 7 Battle Pass before Fortnite Season 8 kicks off.

Here’s where to find and place three Spy Probes for Fortnite Season 7’s Week 8 Legendary Quests to earn some valuable XP to level up your Battle Pass.

Fortnite Season 7 Spy Probe locations

Fortnite Season 7’s Legendary Quests tasks players with placing three Spy Probes for the Week 9 challenges. Here’s where to find and place the probes.

Along with the 17.30 update and the upcoming Ariana Grande concert, Fortnite Season 7’s ninth batch of Legendary challenges have gone live. If players complete these challenges, they’ll net a ton of XP towards earning Battle Stars and completing the Season 7 Battle Pass.

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.

Fortnite Spy Probe

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.

Fortnite Spy Probe locations

Fortnite Spy Probe locations
  1. By the road south of Holly Hedges
  2. By the pond between Holly Hedges and Bony Burbs
  3. On the south-east side of Weeping Woods, by the road
  4. Directly south of the Zero Point, south-east of Defiant Dish
  5. On the hill above Hydro 16
  6. Off the road west of Misty Meadows
  7. On the hill east of Flushed Factory
  8. On the hill west of the Apres Ski resort

By landing near Flushed Factory, you’ll manage to get all Fortnite three Spy Probe locations without having to travel far, and with luck, complete the Quest in one game. This will net you 30,000 XP, which will be a major boost in unlocking the Rick Sanchez skin.
