Fortnite Device locations: How to discover the device in Fortnite

How to start Chapter 3 Season 1's storyline quests.

Discover the device is one of the season quests in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1.

Much like the weekly legendary quests from Chapter 2 Season 7, the quests finding the device unlocks will help tell this season's storyline. You'll also be rewarded with 25k XP for the Battle Pass for completing this quest.

First, however, you need to know the device locations and then how to discover the device itself.


Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Device locations in Fortnite at a glance

There are 10 device locations scattered across the Fortnite map as you can see below:

The device locations in Fortnite.

Seven of these locations are the Seven Outposts, which also contain the vaults. These are by far the easier locations to find a device at, because each one will be sitting inside one of the small buildings that make up the outposts.

If you don't want to visit a Seven Outpost, then you can find a device sitting inside the main building at the Launchpad or in the grass at the feet of The Mighty Monument.

There is also one near the standing stones in the middle of Sanctuary.

The device location the Seven Outpost near Coney Crossroads.

Each one requires you to visit a specific location across the Fortnite map and, once there, complete a specific objective:

  • Receive your next objective at The Launchpad
    • Destroy Signal Jammers in a single match (3)
  • Receive your next objective at Mighty Monument
    • Place Surveillance Cameras in a single match (2)
  • Receive your next objective in The Joneses

All of these quests will reward you with 25k XP when you complete them, which is great for unlocking more items from this season's Battle Pass.
