Where To Find I.O. Tech Weapons In Fortnite?

The I.O. came to Fortnite with war plans, and they didn't come empty handed. They brought with them some weapons that are deadly, and in some cases silent as well.

Although we're yet to see the remaining I.O. Tech weapons in Fortnite, there are three that we can play around with for now.

Where to find I.O. Tech weapons in Fortnite?

There are two ways in which you can acquire these I.O. Tech weapons in the game. The first is by knocking down I.O. guards.

The second is by looting the chests at I.O. bases. There are approximately 7 I.O. bases spread out over the map.

You'll find chests in here that contain these I.O Tech weapons, namely the Pulse Rifle, the Rail Gun and the Recon Scanner.

Other than that, you can hunt down I.O. guards across the island and grab their weapons too. You'll probably be able to snag a Pulse Rifle from every I.O. guard cluster that you take down in Fortnite.

That being said, once you've got your hands on the weapon, its all about dealing damage. You need to deal around 200 damage with these weapons to complete the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 Week 2 quest.

Although these weapons are powerful, they may not be the best ones in the field. Remember to use your Recon Scanner to scan the field for enemies before using the Rail Gun or the Pulse Rifle.

The Rail Gun is an exceptional weapon in Fortnite. It can easily break down single surface builds and damage enemy loopers hiding behind the wall. It's a very overpowered weapon at this point, and will probably be nerfed soon.

However, you still have the option to enjoy playing with this gun until it's being nerfed! Happy looting.

Thanks to Fortnite wild week 3, we'll see an abundance of these IO tech weapons in Fortnite. Not only will IO chests spawn IO tech weapons, but regular chests will drop them as well.

Have fun running and gunning with these weapons!
