Fortnite Characters locations in Chapter 4

The Fortnite characters have received a complete overhaul to coincide with the launch of Chapter 4, which means there's an almost entirely new cast to look out for. Only Evie and Fishstick (now in frozen form) have carried over from the previous season, though other Fortnite NPCs such as Sunflower, Omega Knight, and Wild Card have been seen before in various capacities. Overall there a lot fewer of these characters to meet, with the remainder being either new additions to the lore or crossovers such as footballer Neymar Jr. It's likely you'll need to meet specific NPCs to complete certain quests as the season progresses, so it will help to familiarize yourself with their locations now.

Many of the Fortnite characters you'll encounter have guns and other useful items for sale, though if you want to purchase an Exotic weapon from a character then you have several options available. You can buy one of those sought after shooters from Evie at Shore Shack, Frozen Fishstick by Icy Islets, Princess Felicity Fish in Western Watch, Sunflower at Frenzy Fields, Surrr Burger in Anvil Square, and Wild Card around Breakwater Bay.

Get the lowdown on the new Fortnite Augments and how to activate them in the battle royale.

Although characters are no longer responsible for handing out 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 forecasting the upcoming storm circle so you know the safest direction to head next, or fighting alongside you as your personal bodyguard. If you want to benefit from their abilities, then you'll need to know where to find these 15 different NPCs.

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.

Fortnite Characters locations in Chapter 4

There are currently 15 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 if another player has already hired or eliminated them, that will remove the character from their 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 – this is replaced with a specific Hire icon for characters you can recruit to fight by your side. 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) Aura - Crude Harbour (north of Brutal Bastion)
  • 02) Evie - Shore Shack (west of Frenzy Fields)
  • 03) Frozen Fishstick - Icy Islets (west of Brutal Bastion)
  • 04) Frozen Red Knight - Brutal Bastion (north side of main building)
  • 05) Omega Knight - Secluded Spire (southwest of Slappy Shores)
  • 06) Princess Felicty Fish - Western Watch (southwest of The Citadel)
  • 07) Raptorian The Brave - Pleasant Passage (south of Anvil Square)
  • 08) Neymar Jr. - Slappy Shores (soccer pitch on the northeast side)
  • 09) Scrapknight Jules - Faulty Splits (building on the southeast side)
  • 10) Helsie - Hidden Henge (northwest of Faulty Splits)

  • 11) Joni The Red - Rowdy Acres (southwest of Frenzy Fields)
  • 12) Snowheart - Cold Cavern (northwest of Brutal Bastion)
  • 13) Sunflower - Frenzy Fields (orchard on the north side)
  • 14) Surrr Burger - Anvil Square (building to the east side)
  • 15) Wild Card - Breakwater Bay (middle of the area)
