Approval code in Fortnite research lab

One of the Fortnite Paradise Quests tasks you with finding and entering an approval code at a research lab, and we’ll go over how you can get complete this challenge.

Fortnite Chapter 3 is set to end with the Fracture grand finale live event, but you can still complete all of the Season 4 Quests before then if you want to earn XP and unlock new cosmetic skins.

The 22.40 update patch added new Paradise Quests to Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4, with one requiring you to find and enter the approval code at a research lab. This is a task you can complete quickly if you know where to look.

Where to find a research lab in Fortnite

There are three different research labs that you can visit in this Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 4 Paradise Quest. However, you only need to head to one of them in order to find the code and get this challenge done.

Here are the research lab locations in Fortnite:

  • Under a house that’s east Tainted Towers
  • North side of Synapse Station
  • South of Launchpad on a small island on the east side of the map

To make things a bit easier, you can look at the exact locations of these labs marked on the map below, courtesy of Fortnite.GG.

How to find and enter the approval code at a research lab in Fortnite

At the research lab, you’ll find the approval code painted on the wall. As soon as you enter the lab, you must first collect the glowing item in the room and enter the code into one of the nearby computers.

The code will vary depending on which location you chose to visit. Once you enter it, the Paradise Quest will be marked as complete and you’ll be awarded 32,000 XP for your efforts.

Since other players will also be looking to complete this Paradise Quest, you should stock up on deadly weapons and healing items so that you’re ready for a fight. Once this is done, you can try completing the next stage in the Quests.
