How to align star sensors by damaging them in the correct order in Fortnite

How to complete this Oathbound challenge.

Align star sensors by damaging them in the correct order is one of the time-limited Oathbound challenges you need to complete in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1.

We've detailed how to align star sensors by damaging them in the correct order in Fortnite below.

After aligning the star sensors in the correct order, you have to interact with the cosmic monitor in the middle to complete the fourth and final stage of this Oathbound quest. Once you do, you'll earn 20k, which can help you earn Battle Stars for this season's Battle Pass.

How to align star sensors by damaging them in the correct order explained

It can feel a little random at first when starting this stage of the challenge, but there's actually a picture system in place to help you align the sensors in the correct order.

Each of the five star sensors around this circular cosmic monitor in the middle has their own symbol printed on it. The white exclamation mark on your map isn't showing you where to hit first, it's actually displaying the correct symbol you need to damage next.

So to damage the star sensors in the correct order, look at what symbol is displayed on the monitor in the middle, then go and hit the sensor with the same symbol on it.

Keep in mind that you have to use your pickaxe to damage each sensor, so you can't just stay in the same place and shoot at them.

Now that you know how to align the star sensors in the correct order, you might want to complete the challenge yourself. However, if you're in a rush, we've got the exact solution detailed below.


Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.
