Have you tried turning it off and on again?

Repairing IO equipment is one of the epic quests you can complete in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.

This challenge went live during Week 13 and sees you bringing some small assistance to IO, which you have been both helping and, at times, hindering throughout the season.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you level up and collect Battle Stars for the Season 7 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.

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.

It's also good to know how to ride animals, the geyser locations along with where to find a Baller and zipline and use the new Grapple Glove, and if you're after a specific Battle Pass skin, then it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast.
