Fortnite Wiki

Suit up, it's time to protect the VIP! In Bodyguard, each squad has a VIP. Everyone else is a bodyguard sworn to defend them. If a squad’s VIP is eliminated then the whole squad is out.

VIPs are vulnerable. They’re marked to all enemies and can’t pick up weapons. But, they aren’t helpless either. VIPs spawn with a Legendary pistol and a rechargeable Revive Grenade.
