Where to find the Fortnite Recon Scanner

IO Satellite base in Fortnite

Alien Parasites are latching themselves onto the Fortnite Wildlife, and you can use Recon Scanners to scan these Infected subjects. So, the first thing you’ll need to do is get your hands on this technology.

Recon Scanners can be found at the IO Satellite bases around the island. Another Legendary Quest also has you visit these locations to interact with equipment, so you can complete two challenges in one go.

Here are all the IO Satellite base locations:

How to use the Fortnite Recon Scanner to spot Infected Wildlife or Trespasser

Once you have the device, you can aim and fire it at the subject that you wish to scan. Wildlife can be found all over the map, and you may encounter some right outside the IO Satellite base.

However, finding animals that are Infected might require some searching. Alternatively, you can try to spot a Trespasser at Holly Hatchery. These creatures look like bipedal aliens, and you’ll hear one if it’s nearby.

Just get in clear view of one, and use the Recon Scanner from a distance. Once that’s done, you’ll earn 30,000 XP for yourself. For more Fortnite Quests, check out how to mark an Alien Parasite for the Week 11 Quest.
