What is a detector in fortnite?

Deactivating an alien billboard requires a detector, a special item found inside a briefcase located somewhere on the map. Some of the other challenges this week include eliminating trespassers, placing a bioscanner in an alien biome, and placing spy probes in specific locations.

Calling Alan Horn! As the nasty war between Scarlett Johansson and Disney continues to escalate and rage on in the public eye, might it not be beneficial for someone within the not-so-Magic Kingdom — such as Horn — to intervene and help diffuse the hostilities?

A highly respected industry statesman who’s always been a voice of reason, Horn should step in and try to get Disney to dial down the vitriol that is alienating some of its own movie fans, angering talent reps and women’s activist groups.

Lest we forget: Horn was the seasoned executive who was hired at Disney by leader Bob Iger back in 2012 to help steady the ship after it was rocked by the tumultuous regime of Rich Ross and a string of costly box office flops.

“I fully expect to be a stabilizing force,” Horn said at the time in an interview with Brent Lang, who was then working for a shall-not-be-named trade publication. “All I want to do is keep the waters as calm as they can be.”

Two years into his tenure at Disney, Horn was quoted in an interview in The New York Times saying, “Every once in a while there is a mess, and I try to help.”

Well, here’s a really big mess that needs cleaning up! It would be a fitting swan song for Horn to work his magic before his expected retirement in December.

Clearly, Disney was upset and obviously embarrassed when Johansson filed suit last week claiming the company had cheated her out of potentially tens of millions of dollars in backend compensation by simultaneously releasing “Black Widow” on Disney Plus and in theaters. And I’m not arguing the merits of the suit here, but for the industry’s most powerful media company to issue such a mean-spirited statement publicly slamming and shaming a major star with whom it had shared a mutually successful multiyear business relationship over nine films was beyond the pale of corporate decorum. Couldn’t Disney’s PR machine have written a more measured objection to the litigation rather than call her breach-of-contract suit “especially sad and distressing in its callous disregard for the horrific and prolonged global effects of the COVID-19 pandemic”?

Johansson’s agent, CAA power broker Bryan Lourd, was not about to stand by and let Disney get away with implying that his client was somehow disregarding the huge impact of the pandemic on the entertainment business. “They have shamelessly and falsely accused Ms. Johansson of being insensitive to the global COVID pandemic, in an attempt to make her appear to be something they and I know she isn’t,” Lourd said in a public statement uncharacteristic of his usual behind-the-scenes demeanor.

Also, in an uncharacteristic move, Disney, which like other studios never divulges details of its financial dealings with talent, somehow felt compelled to reveal that Johansson had already earned $20 million in compensation for “Black Widow.” Lourd was appalled that Disney included her salary in its press statement, calling it “an attempt to weaponize her success as an artist and businesswoman, as if that were something she should be ashamed of.”

In this case, perhaps Disney should be ashamed of itself.

Fortnite Legendary quest guide, how to equip a detector and disable an Alien Billboard

Republic World 04 August, 2021 - 11:55pm

Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 has been one of the most successful seasons of the multiplier shooter game. Along with the alien-themed season, there have been multiple collaborations and other in-game deals that have attracted a huge number of players. As the game progresses, players are required to complete a few legendary quests. In order to complete the second legendary quest of week nine, a player needs to equip a detector and then disable an Alien Billboard in one match. Since a lot of readers want to know about the quest, here is a guide.

This week's legendary quest is one of the most tricky ones, as it requires a player to complete two objectives. However, this guide will explain a simple method to complete the legendary quest, which will reward a player with 45,000 XP. Consequently, the experience points will help a player to unlock Battle Stars for Season 7 battle pass. Additionally, completing this quest will also enable players to begin with another legendary quest for Week 9, which is titled 'collect resources in Holly Hatchery'.

In order to complete the Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7 Week 9 legendary quest, a player can jump at the following locations: Craggy Cliffs, Dirty Docks, Retail Row, Misty Meadows, Believers Beach, and Pleasant Park. Once arrived at any of the locations mentioned above, a player needs to find and quip the Alien Signal Detector from a briefcase that might be found lying around. Once equipped with the Alien Signal Detector, a player needs to search for an Alien Billboard, which is usually in close proximity to the briefcase.

As a player reaches the billboard, it displays a message saying submit. The player can now interact with the billboard to disable it. However, a player needs to keep in mind that the locations mentioned above might be crowded as fellow players will also try to complete the week 9 legendary quest. Looting the nearby land and picking up a temporary weapon for self-defence, in order to eliminate the possibility of early termination will be a good strategy.

Fortnite spy probes: where to place them and trick the mothership

Gamesradar 04 August, 2021 - 03:02pm

There are eight Fortnite alien probe locations on the map, and all of them are quite closely clustered together. You need to place three to complete the quest which makes the first three on the map the best place to aim for, as you can get them all taken care of in barely minutes. 

When you get to any of the areas marked on the map you're looking for a small blue instrument on a pole, like this: 

Interact with the prompt when you get close and the probe will be taken up into the mothership. Because the Fortnite probes are quite small and easy to miss, here's all eight areas in more detail: 

Fortnite quests | Fortnite characters | Fortnite Wiretaps | Fortnite Alien Nanites | Fortnite UFOs | Fortnite Trespassers | Fortnite alien artifacts | Fortnite Abductors | Fortnite Mothership | Fortnite alien eggs | Fortnite alien parasite | Fortnite payphones | Fortnite weapon upgrade benches | Fortnite vending machines | Fortnite satellite stations | Fortnite wooden hatchery | Fortnite records | Fortnite campfires | Fortnite parenting books | Fortnite Ferrari

All Fortnite detector and alien billboard locations

Gamesradar 04 August, 2021 - 11:43am

Fortnite bioscanners | Fortnite spy probes  

These are the locations of all Fortnite detectors and alien billboards in the game. There are eight to chose from, in these places: 

In each are you'll find one detector in a plain grey crate and one to three billboards to disable. The detector can be found in a box that looks like this: 

You'll need to approach it and hit the button prompt to equip it, which will put the tech on your back. All you need to do then is to find a billboard where you can hit another prompt that will disable the subliminal alien propaganda and turn the advert back into nice, normal capitalist consumerist messaging. 

However, that's easier said than done on the ground as it can be hard to find a detector or billboard when you're running around between buildings. The easiest options are Boney Burbs or Catty Corner, as both have a detector and billboard right next to each other. They're also less likely to be busy, giving you a bit more safety to tick the tick the quest off. 

But you can't always guarantee where the bus will go so next we've got Fortnite detector and billboard locations in all eight locations coming up.

Where to place Fortnite spy probes

PCGamesN 04 August, 2021 - 09:55am

Every location you can place spy probes in all three areas

Want to know where to place Fortnite spy probes? Those pesky aliens are going a bit far now, they’re now trying to abduct named locations – specifically Slurpy Swamp. Perhaps getting the slurp juice was their endgame after all. Doctor Sloane won’t let this injustice go unnoticed, so she sends us to find out what’s going on via the legendary challenges.

Other legendary challenges she has set us this week include equipping a detector to then disable an alien billboard, collecting resources from Holly Hatchery, eliminating Fortnite trespassers, and placing a bioscanner in an alien biome. Doing these challenges also nets you lots of experience every week, so if you want this season’s battle pass Fortnite skins, this is probably the fastest way to get tons of experience quickly.

You only need to place three Fortnite spy probes, but there are eight blue outlines you can interact with. For completion’s sake, we’ll be going over all of the possible places where you can place the Fortnite spy probes.

All of the Fortnite spy probes are on hilltops, so finding them shouldn’t be too tricky. The locations of the eight Fortnite spy probes are:

And that’s where you need to place the spy probes in Fortnite. Thankfully you don’t need to do this one all in one match. The epic challenges for this week will appear tomorrow, alongside this week’s Fortnite alien artifacts. They’re used solely to get new Fortnite Kymera styles, and given that we’re in week 9, you should be close to unlocking all of them.

Fortnite: How to Converse with NPCs to find an Infiltrator (Week 8 Legendary Quest)

Screen Rant 04 August, 2021 - 03:11am

One of the Week 8 Legendary Quest stages in Fortnite Season 7 is to identify an Infiltrator by speaking with several non-aggressive NPCs.

After completing several espionage quests for Dr. Slone in Week 8 of Fortnite Season 7, players will need to converse with every non-aggressive NPC to find and eliminate an Infiltrator. Unlike previous Fortnite seasons, in which players would only experience the main story in loading screens, Season 7's Legendary Quests let players take a more active role and participate in the events of the Alien Invasion. Dr. Slone usually leads these quests, starting with orders from a payphone and continuing into a series of related activities that should help combat the Alien Invasion. In Week 8 of Fortnite Season 7, players will need to determine which of the beloved NPCs around the map has been replaced by an Infiltrator and defeat them to complete this week's Legendary Questline.

The Fortnite Infiltrators players will need to identify in each match appear at random, so it will be difficult if not impossible to know exactly which characters will be the imposters. Additionally, because the NPCs are fairly spread across the map, it may be difficult for players to complete this quest in a single match. Players will earn a generous amount of XP for completing this last activity for Slone this week. Here's how to converse with NPCs and identify an infiltrator in Week 8 of Fortnite Season 7.

To identify Infiltrators in Week 8 of Fortnite Season 7, players will need to revisit nearly all the NPCs they added to their Character Collection at the start of Season 7. The only ones players ought to avoid are the aggressive NPCs who will attack on sight. These include Guggimon, Zyg and Choppy, Dr. Slone, and Riot. These characters are least likely to be an Infiltrator, and players will waste time fighting if they choose to speak to these four characters.

Players can visit and speak with the following NPCs at the following Fortnite locations:

Each NPC tends to wander their location, so players will need to pay attention to their minimap to find each one. They will appear as speech bubbles with three dots in the center. Normally, the conversations with these NPCs will be mundane as ever. However, every so often, players will notice the NPCs appear glitchy. They may also notice that strange words are highlighted in red, or that the NPC emphasizes the fact that the player is also human. These are signs that the character is actually an Infiltrator in disguise.

Although it is usually randomized, there are five characters who appear to be the most frequent Infiltrators in a given match. These include Sunny, Joey, Human Bill, Bunker Jonesy, and Abstrakt. Players may want to prioritize speaking with these characters first, as they offer the best chance of helping players complete the quest quickly.

To discover an Infiltrator, players must converse with the character. After completing all the dialogue prompts with an Infiltrator, players will see a Reveal Infiltrator dialogue option appear. Choosing this option will cause the alien Trespasser masquerading as the NPC to attack, and players will need to defeat it in combat. Though they may need to converse with multiple NPCs, once players successfully reveal and defeat an Infiltrator, the quest will automatically complete. Players will earn 30,000 XP toward their Fortnite Season 7 Battle Pass for completing this final Week 8 Legendary Quest.

While this quest should not take players long to complete, it may be a good idea to converse with NPCs and identify the Infiltrator in Fortnite's Team Rumble Mode, despite its recent changes. This way, players can respawn and continue the quest if they are eliminated by opponents or IO Guards and give themselves a little more time to get around the map to the multiple NPCs.

Fortnite is available on PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
