IO Guards aren't something new in the world of Fortnite. They've been around for quite a while now. They used to come out of the ground and spawn inside small box-like bases. Now they're in charge of guarding all seven satellite stations around the Battle Royale map.
You can also find them guarding Corny Complex, which looks like a farm and operates as such, but underneath there is a secret base that they're protecting, it's also here that you can find the boss, Doctor Slone. Doctor Slone is actually also responsible for another one of week eight's challenges, she asks you to mindwipe Bunker Jonesy, Swamp Stalker, or Human Bill. If you haven't gotten around to completing that mission yet, here's a guide on how you can easily do so.

They're not the strongest AI in the game but they are hostile and will shoot on sight. The loot they drop isn't that great so they're more of nuance than anything else and rarely ever worth the problem of defeating.
According to Doctor Slone in the quest's description, she suspects quite a few moles to be on her side and she needs to investigate. This is why you're helping her, so she can find out who. The locations are exactly the same spots that IO Guards hang around and protect, this meaning the seven satellite stations and Corny Complex. The stations are all landmarks in the game, their names are:
- Discovery Dish, west of Fort Crumpet
- Deep Woods Dish, in Stealthy Stronghold
- Dinky Dish, south of FN Radio
- Dockside Dish, west of Dirty Docks
- Defiant Dish, east of Weeping Woods
- Dampy Dish, southwest of Slurpy Swamp
- Destined Dish, on Mount F8.
The landmarks' danger levels are not that high because not many people tend to land there, Corny Complex is the most dangerous place since it's a POI, it has more loot and the boss Doctor Slone is also there and is quite tough to take down if you run into her.
Although the quest says to interact with IO Operative's computer, what you're actually going to be doing is hacking their equipment. To do this you have to approach the computer, then press and hold "hack workstation". It only takes about a second or two but due to all the guards that hang around the area, it can be risky if you're not on alert and aware of your surroundings.
It is advised that you grab some loot before you do this so in case you run into any trouble, you're prepared and won't be eliminated from the match before you get the chance to complete the mission.
New updates will keep on making the game exciting as always! Don't miss next week's virtual concert, especially if you're an Ariana Grande fan. These are always great fun and always bring the community together.
