Fortnite – IO Airship Locations


As you’re going through the ever-changing map of Fortnite, you’ll find old favorites that have stuck around for a while such as Tilted Towers, and new favorites all mixed into the fray. However, you’ll also find a variety of new items and locations, along with new things to do in these spots, such as raiding IO Airships. There are six different airships located around the map. You can find them in these locations:

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

As you conquer these ships, you’ll have to climb inside and find the chests, which will allow you to raid the treasures that lie within, and let you complete the challenge! You can tackle these ships in any order, so you don’t need to worry about missing one if you don’t get to it in a certain time frame. Once you raid the ships and claim their chests, you’ll be ready to move on to the next challenge in the game!
