Fortnite players have been tasked with repairing five damaged telescopes as part of the introduction to Epic Games' Alien Invasion event.

This challenge went live yesterday, May 25, coupled with another similar quest "Investigate Downed Black Helicopter." The two are supposedly part of five challenges that should lead up to the reveal of the "Awful Duck" teased in code segments. They were originally uncovered by credible Fortnite Twitter informant, @iFireMonkey, who indicated there is definitely more to this event than meets the eye.

Here's how to complete it.

Fortnite 'Repair Damaged Telescopes' Challenge Guide

Like many similar quests before it, "Repair Damaged Telescopes" requires players to find the damaged telescopes scattered throughout the island and interact with them. The challenge only calls for five telescopes to be fixed, however, players will need 20 metal material pieces to repair each one--for a total of 100 metal. We recommend collecting these first in order to reduce the time spent not traveling toward each telescope.

We've labeled each location going clockwise for player convenience. However, these can be found and repaired in any order

The locations of the five damaged telescopes are:

  1. On the hill directly east of Craggy Cliffs.
  2. The center point of Colossal Crops, Dirty Docks, and Steamy Stacks.
  3. On top of the small snowcap directly southeast of Retail Row.
  4. The southeastern point of the largest snowcap traveling south past Catty Corner. It overlooks the sea.
  5. Directly west of Misty Meadows.

As always, prepared for a fight. On a map filled with other players itching to score the same reward, one certainly won't be alone at the site of each telescope.

The reward for completing the challenge is 24,000 experience points.
