Shakedown an IO Guard

IO Guards are a new feature to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 and spawn in groups of three across the map.

Here are the locations of the IO Guard spawns.

To complete this players need to shake down an IO Guard after they have been knocked. This is done by pressing the Use button when near them, usually Square/X/E depending on the platform.


It seems a bit odd to have to perform a shake down on an IO Guard, but it is likely done as a source of frustration and IO Guards can be aim bots and players will likely get lasered while performing it, IO Guards are relentless.

Once one IO Guard has been shook down the challenge will complete.
