There are Fortnite satellite stations dotted around the map, as well as one hidden Corny Complex. If you can find one of these locations you can usually get a good advantage from the range of great loot you'll find - both from chests and special crates, as well as a range of Fortnite characters you can find wandering about. Just be careful with the Fortnite IO Guards. If you defeat them you can claim their Pulse Rifle, or you can shake one down if you've knocked them o get info about the surrounding area. Just be ready for a fight as there's usually more than one and once you attack they'll all know. 

These satellite stations have been established by the Imagined Order to survey and research all the alien activity on the Fortnite island and while these bases are full of loot and goodies, smashing up the computer equipment within is needed for this latest challenge, along with another challenge earlier in the season. These Fortnite satellite stations are also where you can find a body scanner, so for everything you need to know about Fortnite satellite stations, keep reading.

There are a total of seven Fortnite satellite stations around the island, and you should be able to spot them when you get close due to their prominent dishes with glowing red lights at the tip. Their individual locations are as follows:

  • Discovery Dish - west of Believer Beach
  • Deep Woods Dish - inside Stealthy Stronghold
  • Dinky Dish - southeast of Craggy Cliffs
  • Dampy Dish - southwest of Slurpy Swamp
  • Defiant Dish - east of Weeping Woods
  • Dockside Dish - west of Dirty Docks.
  • Destined Dish - southeast of Misty Meadows

These are handy places to visit, as you're likely to find caches of Fortnite tech weapons as well as Fortnite IO Guards to take down. Once you've loaded up on guns and other useful items, you can use the launchpad outside to fire yourself up into the air, then glide on over to your next destination.

If you need to step onto a body scanner for a particular quest, then again the Fortnite satellite stations can help you out. Look for a small security hut building near the entrance to the station, and inside you'll find a terminal linked to a pad on the ground in the corner you can stand on to be scanned.
