Various NPCs can be found across Fortnite‘s Chapter 5 Season 3 map, ready to join your fight or aid in quest fulfillment. Here is a complete guide that shows you all the locations for easy navigation.

Fortnite’s Battle Royale features various NPCs you can interact with during your matches. In Chapter 5 Season 3 this is no different, where Epic Games has reshuffled the pack with fresh faces for this season.

Each NPC character offers unique benefits to help you get that Victory Royale, such as exchanging of items for weapons or even providing services, which can include joining your team to fight for you.

You’ll also need to visit many of these characters over the course of Chapter 5 Season 3 to complete certain quests and earn XP, so it’s definitely worth taking some time to study the list below and try to memorize their locations.

Here are all the NPCs and their locations in Fortnite for Chapter 5 Season 3.
