Fortnite tech weapons are signature items for the IO Guards, whether they're a Fortnite Pulse Rifle, Rail Gun, or something else, and you'd better believe that the Imagined Order are well armed as they look to take control of the island in Fortnite Season 7. Not only does this category encompass some powerful guns, but there are also tactical devices such as the Recon Scanner, which fires projectiles that scan the area around them to highlight the locations of enemies and chests through walls.

Collecting these tech weapons, and particularly the Fortnite Pulse Rifle, plays a big part in several of the Fortnite Week 1 quests, so it pays to know how to get your hands on them. Handily, there are several new places in Fortnite where you can easily pick them up, so read on for details of all the main Fortnite tech weapons locations.

Fortnite tech weapons can be found in a number of places, but the easiest place to collect tech weapons is at Corny Complex. There is a large contingent of IO Guards patrolling this area, and most of the central buildings contain IO equipment. You could also visit one of seven Dish locations around the island, as each of these is also full of IO equipment and they often have IO Guards protecting them as well.

Once you're in one of those Fortnite tech weapons locations, you want to look for the long supply chests (pictured above) as these drop various tech weapons when searched, including the Fortnite Pulse Rifle and Recon Scanner. IO Guards may also drop tech weapons when eliminated, depending on how they were armed. Grab all of the Fortnite tech weapons you see as you move through these areas and it shouldn't take long to complete the quest.
