One of Fortnite’s Week 9 challenges requires players to “equip a detector and disable an alien bulletin board.” This mission will load along with the other Week 9 challenges on Wednesday, August 4 at 10:00 am ET. Here’s everything you need to know about Fortnite alien billboards and detectors to complete this legendary week 9 mission.
The bulletin boards mentioned in this challenge have been distributed throughout the map. You’ll know when you’ve found one when a normal ad turns into a “subliminal” message like “SUBMIT” on a black background.
To save the islanders from Fortnite, you will need to disable these alien billboards with a detector found around the island. And it turns out that you can find one right next to one of the billboards.
Where to find an alien detector and bulletin board in Fortnite
To complete this challenge, head over to Misty Meadows and look for a notice board in the southeast corner of the named location. It is expected to show a “Mewosicle Bites” ad. Land here when you see it.
Near the bulletin board, you should find the detector lying on the ground near nearby buildings.
Once you have the detector, pick it up and head over to the alien bulletin board. Interact with it and the detector should automatically turn off the display panel, completing the challenge.
It should be noted that this is not the only Fortnite alien billboard location on the map. These are scattered around other named locations, and the detector will always be on the ground near them. If you find that Misty Meadows is too busy, try a different one.
You will get 45,000 XP for completing this challenge from week 9 of Fortnite.
