Fortnite challenge guide: Destroy computer equipment at satellite stations or Corny Complex

The latest batch of Fortnite challenges is live for season 7, week 5. For this week, you’ll find a much more straightforward list than others in recent memory. There are still a few collectible quests here and there, but a lot more of your objectives can be completed by playing naturally. One that might cause you some trouble is destroying computer equipment at satellite stations or Corny Complex.

Since satellite stations aren’t marked on the map, and neither are the locations of computer equipment, you might be unsure of where to go. In this guide, we’ll show you everything you’ll need to know about completing this challenge, with tips to get through it as easily as possible. Here’s how to destroy computer equipment at satellite stations or Corny Complex in Fortnite.

Where to find computer equipment

Map of satellite locations in Fortnite.

There are several computer equipment locations around the map — most of which are found at satellite stations. The map above (thanks, shows the locations of each spot that contains computer equipment. Thankfully, you only need to visit one of them to complete the challenge. When selecting one of the locations above, we advise picking one on the outskirts of the map to avoid coming across other players. Make sure you pay attention to the path of the Battle Bus to plan where to go.

The spot at Corny Complex is a little different since it’s not a satellite station. Instead, one of the barns has a silo next to it with alien equipment. If you land on top of the silo, you can easily bust through and destroy all the equipment inside without being seen — especially since most players will be focused on the saucer in the barn next door.

We also recommend working toward this challenge in Team Rumble so you can respawn if you’re eliminated. And as always, coordinate with a team to make this one easier.

What is computer equipment?

The term “computer equipment” is vague and doesn’t necessarily explain what to look for. In this case, each of the locations mentioned above features orange monitors all over the place, and these are what you’ll want to destroy. To complete the challenge, you only need to destroy three of these screens, though it seems the devices attached to them also count as “equipment” as well. In essence, look for these devices and hammer away with your pickax, destroying everything in sight. That way, you don’t have to worry about guessing what items count.

After you’ve destroyed three of them, you’ll complete the challenge and earn 30,000 XP for doing so.

A list of all the Fortnite augments, and how to use them

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 wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive 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 essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. 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.

New characters from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2.

Surviving in Fortnite and securing a Victory Royale takes skill and luck. Getting better at Fortnite requires a knowledge of the playing field and a drive to outlast your opponents, but none of that matters if you aren't picking up the right weapons. Building a loadout that suits your playstyle and managing your inventory as the match progresses is key to snagging a win. You don't want to be caught in a long-range battle against someone on a mountaintop without a solid rifle on hand, and you certainly don't want to find yourself inside a close-quarters building without an SMG or shotgun.

Our guide to the best weapons in Fortnite breaks down rarity types and what they mean, the most effective arms in each weapon category, and tips for how to use them. Chapter 4, Season 2 brought a lengthy list of changes to the Fortnite arsenal -- including new weapons and the return of some fan favorites.

Fortnite lawsuit: Are you eligible for a refund from Epic Games?
New characters in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4.

Fortnite developer Epic Games is being hit with $520 million in fines by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violating the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act and there's a chance that you could get a payout.

Out of that $520 million total, $245 million is set to be refunded to customers. Refunds are meant to go to those affected by the company's billing and refund practices -- mainly players (and parents of younger players) who were charged for unwanted cosmetics and were met with account locks if they tried to dispute the charges with their credit card companies.
