Where to find every NPC that can be hired in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2

In this list, we’ve outlined where you’ll find all four NPCs that you can hire in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. We’ve also included map references so you know which ones are close to your current location.

Where to find Polar Patroller

Polar Patroller will be walking around a large concrete building in the northern part of the map. Their location is directly west of Brutal Bastion and northeast of Anvil Square. Use the map reference above to find the exact position. The building is quite small, but you should be able to see the speech bubble indicator for this NPC as you approach them. You’ll need to pay them 100 Gold Bars if you want their protection. They bring a decent assault rifle with them and are pretty good at taking out or distracting other players while you do the hard work.

Where to find Remedy

You can find Remedy to the north of Mega City. She’s in the small outcrop of land above the city on the map that’s covered in trees. A small patch of nature amongst the hyper-futuristic buildings.

She’s very much a standard NPC, one that can attack with basic weapons but doesn’t do so much damage that you can rely on her to kill a target. She’ll cost you 100 Gold Bars, which is about right for her abilities.

Where to find Garrison

You’ll find Garrison at the bottom of the map. He’s in a tower on an island that sticks out on the map’s bottom left.

This NPC is a bit of a powerhouse, packing much more firepower. At 100 Gold Bars, you can’t ask for more. You’d expect as much from a soldier. This NPC could probably carry you through a few fights but won’t last long.

Where to find Longshot

The final NPC you can hire in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 is Longshot. He’s located on the western coast of the map, on a small outcrop just like Garrison is. Look for the nodule sticking out of the map on the left, and you’ll find him.

Longshot is a sniper, and he’s very powerful. You’ll need to pay 175 Gold Bars to hire him. He can easily take down targets from afar and comes with an ability that scans the area now and then for enemies. It’s very useful toward the end of a match.

How to hire an NPC

Hiring an NPC is simple in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. First, find the NPC you want to hire using the list above. When you know their location, interact with them and select the option to hire them. You’ll need to pay them with Gold Bars, so make sure you pick some up in the match to ensure you have enough to buy their protection. The NPC will follow you until their health is depleted by any attacking players. If they aren’t defeated, they’ll enjoy your Victory Royale alongside you.

When should you hire NPCs?

We don’t recommend hiring an NPC at the start of a match. They will struggle to keep up with you if you’re trying to find a really good weapon like the Mythic Overclocked Pulse Rifle. If you get into the final 20 players in the match, that’s when you need to be hiring an NPC. Use the above list to find the one nearest to you, hire them, and then be careful as you move around. If someone fires at you, let your NPC do the shooting while you hide behind a rock. You’re paying for them to take the hits and push back against anyone that wants to take a Victory Royale away from you.
