In addition to eliminating trespassers and placing spy probes, Epic Games and Doctor Slone have tasked players with using an IO Launchpad for Week 9. Here's how to complete the Use IO Launchpads Week 9 Challenge in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7.
Where to Find IO Launchpads in Fortnite
This challenge is super straightforward and easy to accomplish solo within one game—as long as players know where to find an IO Launchpad.
To be clear IO Launchpads aren't the same as the ordinary Launchpad utility items that can be held in your inventory and placed down. IO Launchpads were another Chapter 2 addition to the island that permanently spawn in the same spots across the map each game.
First things first, IO Launchpads can be found near the places on the map that have the satellite dishes.
For the purposes of this challenge, we recommend players to head over to the Slurpy Swamp POI.
Once in the vicinity, go to the southwest area by the water where you should be able to see plenty of IO Launchpads glowing blue up to the sky.
Lastly, simply jump on one and use it like you normally would with any Launchpad.
Just like that, another 30,000 XP is in the bag for the Season 7 Battle Pass.
