First, players will need to locate an IO Blimp on the Island. Thankfully, since they're up in the air, you shouldn't have too much trouble locating one. They can mainly be found in the air space above IO occupied POIs.

Once found, look for its Zipline which will be attaching the blimp to the ground. Activating that will allow players to zip up the line and enter the blimp. There'll be some loot inside for you to grab, though that could mean you won't be alone up there. Keep an eye out for any opponents once you enter.
