Galactus has been vanquished, but things are not all peaceful in the Loop. A new force of chaos has descended on the land and players will be teaming up with the greatest bounty hunters in the multi-verse to hunt down whose responsible.
Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has begun, which means a new map, and new map challenges as well. As you explore the new map and Battle Pass, you will notice that a lot of the new challenges revolve around the Mandalorian and his spiffy new skin. The new content in the most popular battle royale title is themed all about Star Wars. While you’re here, you might want to take a look at the new map challenges, especially for Week 1. Anyway, back to the point.
The Gold Bars in Fortnite can be used for a variety of items. You can get these Bars from the Bounties that are spawned all over the map. Agent Jones has called them all here to help figure out what’s going on. To that end, players will have to pitch in by completing these mini-quests. This means you’re going to have to hunt down the NPCs and see what they want.
Each NPC spawn is randomized. NPCs will be marked in the game by speech bubbles. When you see one, head towards it and interact with them. When you do, the NPC will present you with Bounties that can be completed for Gold Bars. There are several different types of Bounties, so be careful of some of them. The game may ask you to duel the NPC, which can be very dangerous. Aim for the bounties that are simpler, like exploring the map and eliminating a certain player.
There are 40 of these NPCs around the map. Check all the POIs and you can find them if you look hard enough.
All NPC locations
Lexa – Hunter’s Haven
Menance – Colossal Coliseum
Mancake – Butter Barn
The Mandalorian – The Razor Crest
Deadfire – The Sheriff’s Office
Remedy – Hilltop House
Dummy – Pleasant Park
Sleuth – Sweaty Sands
Doggo – Pleasant Park
Ruckus – Hydro 16
You can only have one active Bounty at a time, so choose carefully. Also, if you do get the target elimination one, that’s pretty useful. If you don’t get the target and someone else does, you still get half of the normal 70 Bar reward.
You can spend Gold Bars in Fortnite on the following items:
- Healing Items
- Revive a teammate
- Mythic weapons
- Hire the NPC as a support
