The storyline continues to evolve in epic proportions as Fortnite has now entered Chapter 3 Season 2: Resistance. An invasion from two groups, The IO and The Seven, has left the island in disarray and completely altered the state of play.

In a major development, the IO Force has disabled the building feature on the Fortnite island, preventing players from crafting structures. In order to help fight to get the building feature back, players will need to complete a set of Rebuliding quests.

One of these challenges will require players to get behind enemy lines and place a piece of equipment. Here's a guide for how to plant a Data Scraper at the tail of an IO Airship in Fortnite.

To begin completing the Rebuilding challenges in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, players must first head to one of the IO Force locations to board an Airship. IO Guarded locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 include the following:

  • Command Cavern
  • Coney Crossroads
  • The Daily Bugle
  • Tilted Towers
  • Rocky Reels
  • Condo Canyon

Once players have located an IO Airship floating in the sky, there are a number of ways to board them. Of course, a simple drop from the battle bus will suffice, but if you've already landed there will need to be an alternative method.

Each IO Airship will have zip lines attached to it which players can use to reach the bridge. Additionally, Siege Cannons can be used to launch yourself (or teammates) through the air.

Here's a map highlighting all the IO Airship locations:
