Fortnite challenge guide: Destroy IO intel

Fortnite season 7, week 13 is here, and with it comes a brand new set of challenges for you to complete. This week’s challenges are slightly more complicated than you might be used to, though they aren’t exactly difficult to get through. One of the new challenges requires you to destroy IO intel, which only appears at a certain location on the map. Since you can only complete this challenge by visiting this spot, you’re unlikely to complete this one naturally unless you like landing by Corny Complex. Since it’s out of the way, you’ll probably have to intentionally head to this location to get through the challenge.

In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about completing the latest challenge. Here’s how to destroy IO intel in Fortnite.

Where to find IO intel

The IO intel is found inside a camper to the northeast of Corny Complex. It’s just by the winding river that leads to Steamy Stacks. As with most challenges, we recommend landing nearby to grab some gear first so you’re prepared, just in case you come across an enemy player. It won’t do you any good to get taken out before you can destroy the IO intel. And along with that, we recommend attempting this in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you’re eliminated before you can destroy the IO intel. It also helps to bring a couple of teammates with you to watch your back. Though, from our experience, we didn’t encounter any other players in this area, so you should be relatively safe if you go there with weapons and gear. Just make sure you scope out the place before charging right in.

It’s worth mentioning that you must first complete the other prerequisites before being able to finish this challenge. This includes the challenge of repairing IO equipment and for building structures at Corny Complex. Once you complete both of those (in order), you’ll be able to start this one. If you attempt to visit this location before you’ve completed the aforementioned challenges, the IO intel will not appear.

Thankfully, it’s not too difficult to quickly stop by the camper and destroy the IO intel.

Once you’ve arrived and the coast is clear, simply walk inside the camper and you’ll see the intel on the ground on the right. To destroy it, all you need to do is press and hold Square on PlayStation, X on Xbox, and Y on Nintendo Switch. After you’ve destroyed it, you’ll earn credit for completing the challenge, along with 30,000 XP for your troubles.

The best weapons in Warzone

Now that Call of Duty: Warzone 2.0 Season 4 has been out for a little while, we've got a better sense of the game's weapon meta. There are some clear winners that carry over from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, but there are other top-tier weapons that might surprise you in battle royale. Of course, the weapon meta constantly shifts as Activision updates the way firearms perform, so we'll make sure to keep this up to date with each new patch.

These are the best Warzone 2.0 weapons for Season 4, categorized by weapon type. Keep in mind, some categories will be skipped, as they don't have any viable -- let alone meta -- options at the moment.

The best places to land in Fortnite right now
Character landing in Fortnite.

Survival is key in Fortnite, and it all starts by picking the best starting location. Even if you're an expert player, your likelihood of coming out on top is greatly diminished if you start off on the wrong foot -- whether it be at a barren location with no loot or a hot drop that could lead to a swift death. As part of Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 3, there's no shortage of fantastic landing spots, but which one you choose comes down to your skill and preference, and you're going to want to pick the right one if you want to win Fortnite. So join us as we show you the best Fortnite landing spots for veterans, beginners, and everyone in-between.
The best places to land in Fortnite

Before jumping into the list, it's important to be aware of what makes a good landing spot. Sure, any place with decent loot might serve you well, but there's more to consider than that. Does a spot have a consistent chest/loot spawn? Are there guaranteed materials? Is it close to other places of interest (POI)s? Is it out of the way? Of course, loot is the most important aspect, but it does you no good to have a stacked loadout if you're stuck in the storm. These recommended landing spots all have some degree of consistency and fantastic loot, and typically have some quirk that makes them effective depending on your playstyle.

Fortnite Reality Augments: full list and how to use them
Fortnite Zero Builds key art.

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that makes a huge difference when going for that elusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments in Fortnite?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 20 augments in the game, but there are 32 total that cycle in and out with each Season. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible. Augments also have their own tab in your menu where you can see which ones you've had so far to track your progress using them all.
