IO equipment locations in Fortnite at a glance

To complete this Fortnite challenge, you need to repair two pieces of IO equipment in two out of three specific IO bases on the Fortnite map.

Each base contains one piece of repairable equipment, so, if you want to complete this challenge in one match, we recommend visiting the two bases located in the northern section of the map.

If, however, you're eliminated by another player after fixing one piece of equipment in either of these two bases, we recommend visiting the southern base, because its piece of equipment is very easy to find.

Season 8 and The Sideways have arrived in Fortnite. You can now start collecting the Season 8 Battle Pass skins, using the Sideways weapons, partaking in Sideways encounters, investigate the map changes and obtain the new Victory Umbrella! Make a start on the Season 8 questlines, with the IO Heist and finding IO guards and mending locations for Baba Yaga. You can also start collecting colour bottles for Tonna Fish and completing the new character collection.
