NPCs are interactive characters you can find across the Fortnite map, letting you purchase weapons and items or even challenging you to a duel to earn XP and enticing rewards.

There aren't that many characters to encounter in Fortnite Chapter 5: Season 1, and considering how big the new map is, it's not like you're just going to stumble across them - so here's where you can find them all.

All character locations in Fortnite

Here are all of the NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 5: Season 1 and details of where they're located on the map:

There are just 15 friendly characters on the map right now, but if previous seasons are anything to go by, more will likely be added as Chapter 5: Season 1 progresses.

After update v28.10 was released, Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid and April O'Neill from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were added to the Island, letting you meet these iconic crossover characters in the game.

What do NPCs do in Fortnite?

Talking to NPCs in Fortnite will fill out your character list - which is great if you're a completionist - but you can also purchase high-tier weapons or healing items from them as long as you have enough Gold Bars.

Some NPCs offer special services like giving you a prop disguise to hide in or activating a rift to send you into the sky so you can glide across the map. A few characters, like Mecha Team Shadow, can also be hired as bodyguards for the remainder of the match.

All bosses in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1

Aside from the friendly NPCs listed above, there are also five boss characters you can encounter in Fortnite Chapter 5: Season 1. These are Oscar, Nisha, Montague, Valeria, and Peter Griffin. Their locations are highlighted by gold Society Medallion symbols on the map.

Be warned that bosses will attack you on sight and are fairly difficult to take down, especially as they're surrounded by grunts to help them out. Make sure you come prepared with a loadout of decent weapons, healing items, and maxed-out shield.

It can be worth the effort, though, as defeating them will reward you with a powerful weapon and a Society Medallion which can be used to unlock a nearby Vault. Inside, you'll find loads of Chests and Gold Bars, as well as a Mod Bench to customise your weapons.
