Fortnite Specialist Characters are a brand-new classification of NPC. Different Specialist Characters fulfil different roles and can greatly assist you on your quest to claim a Victory Royale in Fortnite.

Fortnite Specialist Characters are split into four types: Scout, Heavy, Supply, and Medical. Below are brief descriptions of how each Specialist type functions, plus which NPCs you can hire to perform that role:

Scout Specialist

Scout Specialist Characters wield a Sniper and can ping nearby enemies and Chests. You can hire Longshot and Insight as Scout Specialists.

Heavy Specialist

Heavy Specialists toss explosives at enemies and boast more Health than other Specialist Characters. The current lineup of Heavy Specialists consists of Sludge and Polar Patroller.

Supply Specialist

Supply Specialists ensure that you are always stocked with plenty of ammo and mats. Munitions Expert and Garrison serve as Supply Specialists.

Medical Specialist

Medical Specialists will toss Chug Splashes at you to replenish your Health and Shield. You can put Remedy and Triage Trooper to work as Medical Specialists in exchange for gold bars.
