Where to Shakedown an IO Guard | Fortnite Chapter 2 | Season 5 | Week 9

Least it's only one Shakedown!

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 Week 9 quests are a various assortment of quests to accomplish, but hey, at least you're not destroying harmless produce or corn fields this time!

Where to Shakedown an IO Guard

There are multiple places to Shakedown an IO Guard, so luckily, this will not be a problem to complete, as there will be no hotspots of gamers congregating in one place trying to complete this quest. The hard part of fulfilling this quest is keeping one of the IO Guards alive, along enough to Shakedown them.

To Shakedown an IO guard is very simple. All you need to do is shoot them until they fall on all fours. However, IO Guards are never alone; they always come in groups. Meaning even if you manage to down one of them, the other IO Guards can revive the one that has just been downed.

Below are all the locations that the IO Guards spawn on the Zero Point map. Like we said, there's plenty of locations, so finding some that haven't been eliminated yet, shouldn't be too difficult.

The best way to complete this quest is to eliminate all the IO Guards, but one. This gives you a perfect chance to Shakedown them in peace. On the other hand, if you mess up or another player comes along, then you have no more IO Guards to try with. You will need to move to another location and try again.

Luckily, you only need to Shakedown one IO Guard, only one. Choose your landing spot carefully, and try and do this as fast as possible.

Hey, my name is Mark, and I'm a video game enthusiast! My earliest memory was playing Worms on the Amiga against my Godmother, yes the Amiga, massive box type thing, needed eighty-five thousand floppy disks to play one game, maybe a slight exaggeration. Ah, those were the days! I love RPG’s, and The Legend of Zelda series. Dogs are pretty awesome.
