How to Hire A Character in Fortnite (Week 15 Challenge)

Fortnite Season 5 introduced NPCs that can be hired to protect the player, and here is where players can find all eight hireable characters.

Week 15 of Fortnite Season 5 is giving players a lot of basic Epic Challenges that focus on the core mechanics introduced at the start of the season. One of the challenges in the new set of seven requires players to hire an NPC as their bodyguard. This effectively adds that NPC to their team to fight alongside them, but not every NPC can be a hired gun. Players will need to locate specific NPCs who are willing to get their hands dirty.

There are seven new challenges players can complete in Fortnite Season 5 week 15, none of which requires players to fight or even damage enemy players. In fact, there is only one challenge this week that requires players to interact with other players in any capacity. Players are also getting a pass this week on the annoying challenges that require them to visit multiple locations to collect hidden items. Instead, Fortnite week 15 has players interacting with friendly NPCs to earn loads of experience points.

The biggest issue with this task is finding an NPC that can be hired as a bodyguard. There are tens of NPCs around the map that each offer unique perks or items, and the same goes for which ones can be hired as a bodyguard. Of the 42 NPCs on the map, eight of them can be hired. Their approximate locations have been marked on the map above, but finding them is only half the battle. Players will have to collect and spend 100 gold bars in order to hire any of the NPCs, but these can be collected by searching chests, gold bar safes, destroying furniture, or eliminating enemy players.

Once players have enough gold bars, it’s all about choosing the right NPC. All a player needs to do to complete the challenge is hire a single NPC, but some NPCs are a little more accessible making them a target for many players. One of the safest NPCs to recruit is Mancake who can be found inside the Butter Barn. There is plenty of loot at this location, and players will be protected on all sides since Mancake is inside a building. Drop here, collect loot, and hire Mancake before anyone arrives to quickly earn a ton of XP.
