Fortnite challenges tend to be designed in such a way that they are easy to complete, but "deploying scanners near Retail Row" isn't the most straightforward one.

Although this challenge sounds like a rather complicated process on paper, players can be rest assured that its not as hard as it looks. All that users will have to do is walk up to a specific location and interact with the hologram found there.

Epic Games have given the challenge system a massive upgrade in Fortnite. Every single challenge right now needs to be completed before the new set of challenges come in. Apart from these, there's also a larger set of challenges which are rotated on a daily basis.

The final scanner in Fortnite is located between the two bushes right outside the restaurant called Noms in Retail Row. It isn't that hard to spot.

Placing the scanners in these three locations completes the quest. It really isn't very difficult to complete because all that players are required to do is interact with the scanner outlines in the three locations.


Completing these quests gives players a good chunk of XP, which is vital for players to level up. Although the XP grind in Fortnite can be demanding, with the amount of XP these weekly quests give out, it doesn't seem all that difficult anymore.
