Where to find drones in Fortnite
One of the new features coming in Season 4 of Fortnite Chapter 2 is the Stark Industries drones. Small cargo quadcopters fly around certain areas of the map and if you shoot them down, they drop loot. The loot obtained can include anything from shields to health regeneration and even mythical items like the Silver Surfer’s board or Groot’s blackberry shield.
Drones are found at Quinjet landing sites, which are easy to spot thanks to the blue smoke. The easiest way to spot the landing of the Quinjet is from the battle bus. When you approach these locations from the ground, they are marked on the minimap with a jet plane icon.
When entering the area around the Quinjets, you should be careful – it is patrolled by Stark combat robots armed with powerful laser weapons. To safely shoot down drones in the area, it is best to destroy all the robots in the vicinity. You can also hack one of them, having at your disposal an ally who will follow you until it is destroyed.
