How to Purchase an Item from a Character in Fortnite

Drift? Fox Clan? What the heck is going on in Fortnite?

The new batch of challenges and quests has landed in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 5. Since we’re at the tail-end of the chapter for this run, the Epic quests have been made pretty simple to make them easier to complete. The final batch of quests before season 6 still center around the bounty hunter storyline we’ve been dealing with for a while. One such challenge is a bit harder to deal with though.

You can go to any character listed to buy an item, you don’t have to grab one from a certain NPC. There are spawns all over the map as well. You also don’t have to buy a weapon, since those cost Gold Bars. You can use the map to find NPC locations if you want, to make the process much easier to handle. There are a handful of NPCs you can purchase an item from in Fortnite

  1. Blaze: Dragon’s Breath Sniper
    1. Pristine Point, northwest of Steamy Stacks. Can also be found by  Sweaty Sands
  2. Splode: Boom Sniper Rifle
    1. Unremarkable Shack, northern edge of the map.
  3. Fishstick: Quad Launcher
    1. In the restaurant on the north side of Craggy Cliffs.
  4. Remedy: Chug Cannon
    1. Hilltop House, southeast of Stealthy Stronghold.
  5. Dummy: The Dub
    1. North of Pleasant Park, south of Durr Burger Food Truck. Can also be found near Dirty Docks.
  6. Reese: Shadow Tracker
    1. Eastern warehouse in Dirty Docks.
  7. Deadfire: Hop Rock Dualies
    1. Sheriff’s Office right by Colossal Colliseum.
  8. Grimbles: Night Hawk
    1. Fort Crumpet, northeast corner of the map.
  9. Mave: Storm Scout
    1. Northeast corner by Shipwreck Cove.
