Fortnite - Guardian Tower locations: Where to visit a Guardian Tower explained

Guardians of the galaxy.
Up for a road trip? Here's where to visit a Guardian Tower in Fortnite to complete one of this week's punchcards.

Visit a Guardian Tower is one of this week's punchcards in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.

This challenge was previously available during Season 7 for a limited time as a weekly epic quest. Now, with the introduction of punchcards in Season 8, we're tasked once more with visiting these now iconic landmarks around the Fortnite map.

Completing this challenge will reward you with 30k XP to help you unlock more Battle Stars for the Season 8 battle pass.

Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include red and blue lines on the Fortnite map and Rebuilding quests, including finding and destroying a IO Build Jammer. You can also learn how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

Where to visit a Guardian Tower in Fortnite explained

Unlike Season 7, there's now a total of five Guardian Towers available, but this time around you only need to visit one of them to complete the first step in Shadow Ops' punchcard - as such, the choice is up to you.

At a glance, you can find the locations below:

The first can be found northeast of Pleasant Park, overlooking the named area.

Just next to the river northeast of Believer Beach is another Guardian Tower.

Another Guardian Tower can be found northeast of Corny Complex, close to the river.

Over at Lazy Lake, there is another one on top of the island on the left side of the lake.

If you're near Retail Row, you can find a Guardian Tower northwest of the area, overlooking the town.

Once you're in the area of any of the Guardian Towers, all you have to do is get close enough to them, and it will automatically count towards the quest. Remember that they usually have loot, plus a launchpad that you can use to get to another spot or just somewhere else around the map.

Chapter 3 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Prowler skin, along with the return of jetpacks and Choppas. As we enter Season 2's final month, it's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite. You can also complete Resistance challenges, including collecting signal jammers and finding an energy fluctuation. Don't forget about the Seasonal challenges, which include planting saplings and call an Air Strike on a tank. Meanwhile Victory Crowns and the character collection have returned, along with a new Victory Umbrella to earn.

That's all for this step in the Shadow Ops punchcard!
