If you're wondering where the new Solid Snake NPC can be found on the Fortnite map, we've got all the information you need to meet-and-greet this gaming icon.

The Metal Gear Solid crossover is officially underway in Fortnite, with Snake getting his own skin in the Battle Pass and even a Mythic Cardboard Box being added to the loot pool. But did you know Snake can also be found on the Island as an NPC? Here's how to track him down.

Solid Snake location on the Fortnite map

You can find the new Solid Snake NPC walking around on the small island north of Lavish Lair, at the very tippy-top of the map. I've marked his location on the map below to make things easier:

When you talk to Solid Snake, he'll offer to sell you a Cardboard Box or an EMP Stealth Camo for 100 Gold Bars each. The Cardboard Box is a bit useless, but you'll need it to complete one of the Solid Snake Quests.

The sneaky EMP Stealth Camo provides a lot more bang for your buck, though, as this Mythic item will let you turn invisible for a short amount of time. When you deactivate the camo, it will damage nearby players' shields and stop vehicles in their tracks.

If you want to go one step further, you can also hire Solid Snake to be a Scout Specialist for 250 Gold Bars. Not only will he help snipe your enemies from afar, but he'll also mark nearby Chests so you can stock up on loot. That's a bargain, in my opinion.
