Who are the five best NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1?

An NPC is a non-playable character that you can often interact with inside of a game. You can’t take control of them or play as them but you can use them nonetheless. Sometimes they give you items, sometimes they give you aid. Other times they end up being an obstacle you have to get past.

Usually, they appear in roleplaying games like Final Fantasy or the Legend of Zelda series, but they can appear in just about all games regardless of genre. That includes Fortnite.

So if you’re looking for the best NPC’s in Fortnite, we have the rundown. After all, there are 22 in total, and they all offer up something. The problem, what they’re all offering up may not be what you need.

The best things an NPC can provide are exotic weapons, a disguise, a rift, or their physical aid. Anything else can be obtained more commonly in other ways.  So first, let’s look at one you shouldn’t go looking for.

Agent Jones

(Legendary Sniper/Hire Him/Activate Rift)

The reason you shouldn’t go looking for him is simple, he can be in four different spots depending on when the game starts, and they’re all on the opposite side of the map from one another. So if you drop in looking for him, 75% of the time you’re not going to find him.

The five best NPCs in Fortnite

The Visitor – Island Chain

(Rare Assault Rifle/Create Rift/Hire Him)

For new players, The Visitor is just your guy. Just behind the giant statue in the island chain is where the Visitor resides. He’s on the largest island in the open water, and he gives the players a rare assault rifle, which isn’t great but it’s better than a common gun. He also can open rifts or be a gun for hire.

The Scientist – Sanctuary

Reveal Future Storm Circle/Buy Hop Rock Dualies/Buy Item

The Scientist is really useful if you’re a planning-type player. While you can buy a future item from him and get the Hop Rock Dualies, the ability to see where the storm is forming is super useful.

Tomato Head – Tilted Towers (greasy grove org)

(Epic Hunter Bolt Sniper/Open Rift/Prop Disguise)

If you’re looking for an NPC to land next to, Tomato Head is your guy. Opening rifts and the prop disguise are always great, plus you can get an epic bolt sniper as well.

Lt. John Llama – Near Logjam Lumberyard

Hire/Boom Sniper/ Buy Unreleased Item

Lt. Llama may have the best assortment of options. He has the boom sniper, which is the best long-range weapon in the game, in my opinion. Plus, who wouldn’t want to kick but with a llama sidekick? If you’re a long-range player, Llama is a must-see every match.

Galactico- Tilted Towers Soccer Court

Shield keg/Legendary SMG/Hire

If you’re feeling overwhelmed, Galactico is the guy for you. You get a shield keg, and a legendary SMG, the best gun for beginners in the game, plus you can now double team players.
