Why Should You Find Fortnite Characters?

New Fortnite characters await you in every season of the game

Before you check out the NPC list, let’s deal with some important questions. Why do you have to find and meet the Fortnite characters featured here? Can’t you just run across the map and fire at every enemy to win? To answer those briefly, you can opt to play the game the way you want and not find them, but you will miss out on many things.

Meeting Fortnite NPCs have many advantages, including but not limited to the ones listed below:

1. More Loot and XP

Fortnite characters hiding on the map may be up for a battle with you or challenge you to complete quests. While that makes games like Fortnite tricky to play, you get rewards from those NPCs – valuable loot such as weapons and thousands of experience points (XP).

 

2. HP Restoration

Medkits are useful in the game because they can help you recover some health points (HP). But what if you run out of those healing items? Good news for you. There are Fortnite characters that can heal you or trade supplies with you.

 

3. Teleportation

Fortnite has permanent rifts across the map for teleportation to other places or realms, but they might be hard to get to. There are enemies probably lurking around, so meeting Fortnite characters who can open a rift wherever they are on the map will be great.

 

4. Storm Watch

Getting engulfed in the “storm” or barrier that slowly eats up the playable area leads to the loss of your HP. Good news, though. You can predict where the “storm” will emerge with the help of some Fortnite characters.

 

5. Extra Fun

All in all, Fortnite characters you can find on the map make your playthrough more fun than before. You will surely enjoy the quests and services which also aid you in your run for a Victory Royale.

 

Fortnite Characters and Their Locations

You now know the perks of finding Fortnite characters, so get ready to meet them. The quick list below highlights NPCs from Fortnite Chapter 2: Season 8, who they are, and where they are on the map.

Tips for Locating Fortnite Characters

Although we already shared with you where you can find the latest Fortnite NPCs in the game, there are a few tips that can make the search even easier for you. Below are those:

1. Keep an eye on the speech icon

If you have already seen some of the Fortnite characters, you might have noticed that there is a speech icon in the area once you are near one NPC. So, use that indicator to pinpoint exact coordinates. It is very helpful, especially if who you are looking for is inside a complex structure. For example, a building with so many rooms and floors.

 

2. Be aware of enemies

When looking for characters in Fortnite, remember that you are still in a battle zone. That means many other players might also be in the area looking for the same NPC and ready to fire at you at first sight. To not get caught unprepared, it is advisable to be stealthy when approaching a character. Alternatively, you might want to clear the area first before you interact with an NPC.

 

3. Plan your route

With location information on hand, it is easy to just head straight to where a Fortnite character is. While you are free to do so, we would like to advise you to spend some time thinking about the best route toward an NPC. For example, the character is on top of a tall building or mountain. It would be wiser to drop off there via a glider or from the flying bus instead of going up several floors or braving the perils of a hiking route.
