Fortnite The Collider is a brand-new Fortnite point of interest (POI) that signifies a critical moment in the season-long conflict between The Resistance and the Imagined Order (IO). It turns out that our grim suspensions were right — The Imagined Order has successfully constructed a Doomsday Device in Fortnite. Want to see it with your own eyes? This guide will detail Fortnite The Collider, including its location, loot potential, and how to complete a Seasonal Quest involving The Collider.

Fortnite The Collider is a massive new POI in the center of the Island and right off the coast of Loot Lake. The Collider is surrounded on all sides by the POIs of Shifty Shafts, Coney Crossroads, Fortnite Titled Towers, and The Fortress. The Collider is considered IO territory.

Collider loot and lore

The Collider is home to the IO's personal Doomsday Device. With that, it's safe to say that this location may very well be the stage for an epic end-of-season Fortnite live event.

The Collider is filled to the brim with loot, including a plethora of IO Supply Chests. However, securing this top-tier loot won't be easy as the area is crawling with IO Troops. Furthermore, many of the IO Bosses have relocated to The Collider, including Doctor Slone and Huntmaster Saber.

Smack dab in the center of the Island, The Collider is prime real estate. Also, moving about and rotating from this new POI is easier than ever. There are IO launch Pads, Fortnite Ascenders, and Fortnite Siege Cannons everywhere. Plus, you can use the Doomsday Device to lift off.

How to call in an airstrike

A Week 9 Seasonal Quest assigns us the task to call in an Airstrike at The Collider or The Fortress.

We've covered Fortnite Air Strikes in detail before, but to summarise, Air Strikes can appear as loot from Chests, Supply Drops, and Floor Loot. Classified as an item of Legendary rarity, Air Strikes aren't the most common to encounter. With this in mind, you may need to ransack quite a few Chests before you come across some. Thankfully, the high density of loot at The Collider makes it a great spot to start and end this Challenge.

With an Airstrike in hand, visit The Collider or its neighbor, The Fortress, and toss down the Airstrike to complete the Quest.

That's everything you need to know about Fortnite The Collider. Drop into a match and get familiar with this major POI. As Chapter 3 Season 2 winds down, it's all but certain that The Collider and the IO Doomsday Device will play a vital role in the events unfolding.
