Where to hire a character in Fortnite.
For this week’s Fortnite challenges, players will need to spend their bars at the various NPCs scattered about the map. Spend them all or lose them when Season 6 kicks off next Tuesday.
One of these challenges tasks players with hiring an NPC. This can be a useful strategy in actually nabbing a Victory Royale. These characters aren’t that tough or particularly bright, but they can serve as backup and distraction. If you hire more than one you can have your own personal army rolling around helping you take on enemy players.
Here’s the location of every mercenary character on the Season 5 map:
Hire a character at these locations
Spend some gold bars, hire a character, earn 40,000 XP and go eliminate some fools. Simple as that.
Good luck young padawans!
