One of the Quests you might spot in Fortnite asks you to deploy three Scanners near Retail Row. Finding Retail Row in and of itself isn’t that hard, but knowing what these Scanners look like, where they are, and how to deploy them can be a bit more confusing.
To help, we’ve put together a quick guide running through the process of deploying Scanners near Retail Row in Fortnite!
Fortnite | How To Deploy Scanners Near Retail Row
In Fortnite, to complete the quest “Deploy Scanners Near Retail Row” you’re going to want to jump into a match and then land at Retail Row.
Once you’ve landed, you’re going to need to run around looking for the outline that indicates a Scanner is there and can be deployed.
This is a little easier as the storm moves in and the sky darkens as these Scanners will glow.
To complete the Quest, you’ll need to find an deploy three Scanners in total. In the map image above, we’ve circled where we were able to find three Scanners to deploy.
For further breakdown, here's additional details about where we found each of the three Scanners that we were able to deploy.
- Scanner #1: Located in front of Joeli, a small corner shop with a green and white awning. The Scanner is next to a circular shrub and a garbage can out front.
- Scanner #2: Located directly across the street from the Scanner you deployed in front of Joeli. To find it, head straight from the Scanner outside Joeli and you should spot the second Scanner to the right of a tree.
- Scanner #3: Located in front of the large "NOMS" store, can be found tucked between two circular bushes. You may need to destroy these in order to see the Scanner outline.
To deploy Scanners, all you need to do is approach their outline, then interact with them. That’s it, that’s all there is to it. Note that in addition to the three Scanner locations circled in our map image, we were able to find a fourth near a shrub closer to the center of Retail Row as we were driving out.
We ran through the shrub and there it was, a fourth Scanner outline. This suggests there are more Scanners in Retail Row than the three that we marked.
With that in mind, we suggest simply keeping an eye out for Scanner outlines as you carefully work through Retail Row.
Be sure to pick up weapons and supplies before you start deploying Scanners as you may be interrupted by enemy players also looking to complete this Quest.
Once you’ve completed this Quest, you’ll earn an easy 10,000 XP and can move on to other available Quests like dealing 100 damage using Pistols in Fortnite.
