Having said that, Fortnite is far from perfect. The game has had several bugs and glitches. Recently, Fortnite players complained that they were unable to complete the ‘Use a Phone Booth as Clark Kent’ quest.

And it seems like the recently started challenge is suffering from a similar bug. Fortnite players are reporting an issue with the ‘Collect 3 Alien Devices’ challenge not working.

Players say they are unable to complete the legendary challenge because they cannot find the third device.

Those affected have tried reinstalling the game, repairing game files, and even changing graphic settings but nothing seems to be working.

Epic Games is yet to acknowledge the issue. Fortnite developers have currently disabled the servers to prepare for the Fortnite v17.50 update. You can check the server’s status here.

If the developers fix the Fortnite Collect 3 Alien Devices challenge not working issue during the maintenance, we will update this space so make sure to keep an eye out.
