Fortnite Characters locations in Season 3

After the roster of Fortnite characters recently expanded with the addition of Evie and Panther, players are now looking for Fortnite NPCs who sell fancy armaments to tick off a weekly assignment. Helpfully you have plenty of choices for where you can go to purchase an Exotic weapon from a character, as Cuddle Team Leader at Rave Cave, Kyle at Washout Wharf, Sunbird or Moonhawk at The Temple, The Visitor at Launchpad, or any of the four Joneses at The Joneses will offer this transaction to you. Not only will this tick a task off your list, but you’ll also receive a powerful weapon to get a competitive edge over your opponents.

Swing your way around the island with Fortnite Grapple Gloves from one of these locations.

Although characters are no longer involved with distributing Fortnite quests, it still pays to know their locations as they’ll give you useful items for free when you meet, as well as selling services such as fighting alongside you as your personal bodyguard or forecasting the next storm circle to give you a head start over your opponents. If you want to benefit from their abilities, then you’ll need to know where to find these 29 different NPCs. We should also highlight that currently Fortnite Darth Vader isn’t on the official characters list, so follow our separate guide if you want to take them on in battle.

Fortnite characters accept payment in the form of Fortnite gold bars, which you can spend with them on weapons, items, and useful intel. Because the world of Fortnite is so large you might not stumble upon them by accident, so follow our guide to all of the Fortnite characters locations and you’ll be meeting up with these elusive NPCs in no time.

There are currently 29 Fortnite characters to find around the island, and you can keep track of the ones you’ve met so far by visiting the Collections tab on the Quests screen. They all only spawn in one specific location each which makes them easier to find, so we’ve marked all of the Fortnite characters locations we’ve encountered on the map. Bear in mind that when characters are bunched up in an area (such as Shroom Chalet or The Joneses) then they may not all spawn in the same match, and if another player has already hired or eliminated them then that will remove the character from the location.

You’ll know when you’re close to one as you’ll see a speech bubble icon on your map, as well as on your screen above their head which you can see through walls. Interact with them and the first time you meet you’ll add them to your Collection, with a confirmation appearing on screen. This list shows where all of the Fortnite characters can be discovered:

  • 01) Lil’ Whip – Coney Crossroads (Sofdeez on the east side)
