If you’re working on Fortnite’s weekly quests, you might be wondering where to find IO Guard spawn points to complete the challenge that asks you to shakedown an IO Guard. You’ve likely seen these hostile NPCs roaming around the island, but where do they actually spawn? In this guide, we’ll go over how to locate roaming IO Guards and how to perform a shakedown to complete this quest.
This quest, as well as many others, are now live as part of Fortnite’s .
IO Guard spawn locations
IO Guards spawn near Elevators, the metal cube-shaped buildings that can rise out of the ground. You’ll be able to identify them by their all-black hooded uniforms and gas masks with glowing purple eyes. They usually spawn in groups of three. Below, you can find all 20 spawn points where it’s possible to encounter these guards, courtesy Fortnite dataminer Mang0e.
I’ve mapped the IO Guard spawn locations.
There are currently 20 of them, and all are enabled. I decided to map these to see their exact locations and try and determine where they are tunneling from. We’ll have to see if this map changes later on. pic.twitter.com/NQmBZCypVN

How to shakedown IO Guards
To shakedown an IO Guard, you’ll have to knock one down first. If you’re going at this solo, be careful about how you approach the group. Without cover, they can easily overwhelm you. Each guard has 250 Shield and 100 Health.
Once you’ve taken a guard down, don’t kill them yet! Approach the downed guard until you’re prompted to perform a shakedown. You can probably get away with this even if you’re under fire, just make sure you go about it carefully.
You will receive 20,000 XP upon completing this challenge.
