Fortnite damaged telescopes in need of repair can be found at various vantage points around the island, where someone has gone to town on these viewing devices and smashed them off their mounts. Repairing these telescopes is one of the initial stages of the Fortnite Foreshadowing quests, along with investigating the Fortnite downed black helicopter, so we'll have to wait a bit longer to find out who could have broken them and what they're being used to watch out for.

Knowing that the Fortnite damaged telescopes are generally mounted up high still gives you a lot of ground to cover in Fortnite if you're searching for them yourself, and that's why we're here to help out. We've already scanned the island and found seven repair Fortnite damaged telescopes locations to help you on your way, so if you're ready to start fixing up some magnifying eyepieces then follow our lead. Make sure you also use Fortnite CB radios, place Fortnite warning signs at crop circle, and destroy Fortnite spooky TV sets to complete the rest of your mission.
