Fortnite IO Outpost locations and where to emote on top of an IO Outpost

Dance on the enemy.

Emote on top of an IO Outpost is one of the last Season challenges released during Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2.

This challenge tasks you with visiting one of the ruined IO Outposts across the island - to shall we say - make a point about the current state of the IO in Fortnite.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 20k XP, which will help you collect those final rewards from this Season’s battle pass.

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.


IO Outpost locations in Fortnite

If you want to emote on top of an IO Outpost for this Fortnite Season challenge, you need to know where the IO Outposts are, especially since the majority have seen better days.

There are five IO Outposts you can emote upon and, below, you’ll find their locations at a glance:

The IO Outposts locations on the Fortnite map.

Remember - you only need to emote atop of one IO Outpost to complete this challenge and, since Season 2 is coming to a close, it’s worth doing if there’s anything you’d like to unlock on the battle pass.


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.


One IO Outpost can be found south-east of Greasy Grove in the small patch of the desert before the river.

Another IO Outpost is located in the charred land west of The Joneses, before you reach the temple.

A third IO Outpost still stands between Sanctuary and Tilted Towers - not too far from the space lake in these fields.

You can find another IO Outpost close to the coastline north of The Daily Bugle.

The final IO Outpost is east of Logjam Lumberyard - at the foot of a mountain.
