Why Should You Find Fortnite Characters?
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). Loot can also drop automatically once you interact with the characters.
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.
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 (Chapter 3)
You now know the perks of finding Fortnite characters, so get ready to meet them. The list below highlights NPCs from Fortnite Chapter 3, who they are, and where they are on the map.
How to find: Travel to any Seven Outpost northeast/west or southeast/west of the map
Agent Jonesy is among the latest Fortnite characters you can make an ally. Why not? He’s an agent, great for sneakily eliminating enemies that may come your way. His service will cost you 95 gold bars, in case you’re interested.
How to find: Explore the Greasy Grove, southwest of the map
Bao Bro (in red outfit) looks like a fast-food chain mascot, so you might guess easily his role in the battle. The NPC provides players with disguises. He also sells a rifle that has a 2x multiplier.
How to find: Infiltrate the main structure in The Joneses area, southeast of the map
If you think this Fortnite NPC is familiar, you’re right. That’s because Brainiac is also Agent Jonesy — just looking like he became The Hulk. The good news is that he’s not going to go rage mode on you; he’s ready to be your comrade. If you don’t need an extra ally, then locate him to buy the strong Auto Shotgun he offers.
How to find: Locate the truck in The Joneses area, southeast of the map
If you’re still in The Joneses, then why not find Bunker Jonesy too? He also has a very hard-to-find weapon you might like: the Dub (improved Double Barrel Shotgun). Also among his supplies are fishing and healing items.
Cuddle Team Leader
How to find: Enter the pink-themed structure at Camp Cuddle, west of the map
If you’re looking for more firepower for your weapon arsenal, find this pink anthropomorphic bear called Cuddle Team Leader. The Fortnite character offers a Ranger Assault Rifle with high damage per second (DPS). Also among her wares are the Marksman Six Shooter pistol that fires fast and deals critical damage.
How to find: Head south from Cuddle Team Leader’s building and enter the red structure
Cuddlepool is Cuddle Team Leader merged with Marvel’s Deadpool. Like the antihero she’s inspired by, you can expect lots of fun meeting her.

How to find: Visit the Mexican fast-food chain in Greasy Grove, southwest of the map
Guaco is a restaurateur with a taco head. Unlike the other Fortnite characters, he won’t trade you weapons for gold. But he will offer you a useful healing throwable called the Chili Chug Splash. Be careful using the item, though. It can even heal enemies within close range.
Jonesy The First
How to find: Travel to the blue structure north of The Joneses, southeast of the map
Nothing beats the original, right? That’s why Jonesy The First is worth meeting. Hire him to get to know him and beat other opponents in-game. He also has some gear and wood for you, great for getting an early edge in a match.
How to find: Move northeast from the center of the map and enter the ice cream shop
Stressed by the heat of the battle? Try chilling out for a while with Lil Whip. He can provide you with a disguise great for when you want to avoid enemy radar temporarily.
Lt. John Llama

Fabio Sparklemane in human form? No, that’s Mullet Marauder. The fit and fab NPC has the same role as the pink horse from Fortnite’s previous season, though.

How to find: Travel a bit south past Rocky Reels to reach the Butter Barn, south of the map
Mancake’s angry eyes say it all. He’s up to challenge anyone who finds him in an epic gunfight. Don’t worry about getting an additional opponent. It’s worth it because of the experience and loot you might get.
Metal Team Leader
How to find: Move south from Camp Cuddle until you reach a steel structure
Looking for the best healing items in Fortnite? If yes, meet up with Metal Team Leader. The Fortnite NPC has in its catalog the Med Mist. The must-have spray canister can restore about 150 health points.
How to find: Locate the yellow structure near Camp Cuddle, west of the map
Quackling’s role is limited to being a merchant. But what she sells is truly useful in a match where shooting and building are vital. The Fortnite character offers the MK-Seven Assault Rifle, wood supplies, and Med Mists for a price.
How to find: Travel to the Condo Canyon area, southeast end of the map
If you’re tired of military-themed Fortnite characters joining your fight, you might like to hire Shanta. The lady is like a battlemage because of her enchanting golden armor. Her role also reflects that; she can aid you in combat or offer you healing items and rifts.

It seems that the current roster of Fortnite characters is full of food-inspired NPCs. Add to the pool Tomatohead, who you can mistake to be a relative of Guaco, Mancake, or Bao Bro.

How to find: Check out the central island of the cove close to The Sanctuary, east of the map
The Visitor is also among the Fortnite characters you should approach if you want hard-to-find rifles. You can ask him to fight on your side, unlike The Foundation and The Scientist.

Torin is a hunter and expert in surviving Sideways encounters, so there is no wonder she would like to test your skills in exploring those rifts.

Torin can also reveal to you where the next “storm” will originate.

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.
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, and given that a few NPCs might sometimes be absent in a playthrough.
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.
