Sentry cameras and sentry turrets in Fortnite explained

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 2 has seen the construction of multiple spy bases across the Fortnite map. To ensure that these bases are protected the agencies that own them have installed both sentry cameras and sentry turrets.

Throughout these bases you'll be able to find sentry cameras attached to the walls and sentry turrets guarding doors to important rooms.

You can destroy both by using any weapon in the game, but sentry cameras are far easier to destroy than the turrets.

If you're planning on taking out all five sentry cameras and sentry turrets required for the challenge in one go, it's a good idea to put on a disguise by visiting a phonebooth.

This will allow you to plan out a route of surveillance equipment destruction without being attacked by any henchmen.

Wearing a disguise will make finding and destroying the sentry cameras and turrets easier.
