Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 is in full swing, bringing map changes, a new battle pass featuring Marvel’s Doctor Strange and Prowler, and tons of challenges to complete. From seasonal quests to a new character collection to complete, there is no shortage of activities at hand. This guide focuses on the Fortnite Data Chips. It can be obtained during the Destroy Seven Computers and Machinery quest, which debuted in the first weekly batch of the season.
If you’re in need of more help, we have guides covering the deploy sensors at Logjam Lumberyard, Tilted Towers, and Rocky Reels, find and destroy a clocked IO Build Jammer, plant a data scraper at the tail of an IO Airship, search chests on IO Airships, and launch yourself from a Siege Cannon quests. Yes, all names are absurdly long.
Where to Destroy Seven Computers and Machinery to Collect Dropped Data Chips in Fortnite
As part of the Fortnite Resistance quests, you’re tasked to destroy Seven computers and machinery to collect dropped Data Chips. This quest unlocked for me early on in the Rebuilding quests, right after retrieving IO envelopes with top-secret plans.
Under the premise of “smash up any Seven tech you can find, we’ll fix it later,” you need to find and destroy a total of three pieces of equipment, each containing the Fortnite Data Chips. You can do this across different matches, but they’re all fairly close to one another to complete the task in one go. I chose Synapse Station as the location for this quest.
As per usual, remember to first establish the Device Uplink — in this case, I found one at the site of the road, northeast of the station itself.
Step inside the hologram to kickstart the quest. The task to destroy Seven computers and machinery to collect dropped Data Chips can be completed across all nine Seven outposts. I stood around Synapse Station to complete it, but in case you want to leave to a different area or get attacked by another player, you can resume the quest in any other location afterward.
I stumbled upon a Fortnite Data Chips location in Synapse Station within the outpost itself. I went through one of the settlement buildings and ended up in a large room filled with chairs and desktops. There weren’t any specific highlighted computers or anything of the sort, but don’t worry, as destroying the objects themselves is enough.
That’s it for this quest! That being said, if you’re up for a detour to complete a couple more quests, don’t forget to search chests on the IO Airship, deploy sensors at Logjam Lumberyard, Tilted Towers, and Rocky Reels, and find and destroy a clocked IO Build Jammer around the surrounding areas. If you’re looking for a series of challenges that aren’t quite as hard as they sound, make sure to follow through the Rebuilding quests as soon as possible to start leveling up your battle pass, as you’ll be getting anything from 20,000 to 40,000 XP for each one you finish.
