50 IO Guards in Fortnite is another focus of the Week 5 challenges. Since the challenges were leaked, players are looking to grab all the XP they can before the new year. Along with the standard Week 5 challenges, there's also a Legendary Quest that can earn you 55,000 XP.

The Legendary Quest requires you to eliminate 50 IO Guards. The IO Guards are AIs that were introduced in Chapter 2: Season 5 that spawn at random times during matches. They spawn from cube-shaped building and will attack nearby players. They are high powered, so don't go into a fight unprepared.

Thankfully, Fortnite data miner Mang0e on Twitter has given us the locations of these IO guards. There are currently 20 spawn locations. Make sure you are prepared to fight other enemies that are in the lobby as many will be trying to accomplish the Legendary Quest.

If you're looking to eliminate as many as possible per round, it's probably best to set a course with tightly clustered spawn points. The bottom right/middle of the map has five locations that are tightly clustered around one another, so if you strike out in one area, you'll be able to more easily travel to another to find the IO guards.
