Fortnite direct relay locations and how to set up a direct relay with the Paradigm explained

How to communicate with the Paradigm near Sanctuary.

Set up a direct relay with the Paradigm near Sanctuary is one of the Week 5 Resistance challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2.

To complete this challenge, you must first complete the Week 4 Resistance challenges and then the ‘Plant Wiretraps’ and ‘Recover a Data Drive’ challenges from Week 5.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 23k XP, which will help you unlock skins from the new Battle Pass.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 3 has arrived! New additions include Reality Seeds and Saplings and riding animals, along with the new Battle Pass, characters collection and map changes. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Direct relay locations in Fortnite explained

Before you can set up a direct relay to the Paradigm in Fortnite, you must first establish a device uplink at one of three points around Sanctuary.

The device uplink locations for this Fortnite challenge.

After doing so, three direct relays will appear around the outskirts of Sanctuary and you only need to interact with one to complete this Fortnite challenge.

The first direct relay can be found near the burnt ground on the southern edge of Sanctuary.

The second direct relay is located on the hill above the house in the south-western corner of Sanctuary.

The third and final direct relay is sitting atop the hill just south of the gate in the northern end of Sanctuary.
