Fortnite Wiki

The Caretaker was an AI in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in Update v18.21.


Formerly, at the start of the match three Caretakers spawn at random open areas and begin to traverse the map, while being mostly invisible. Their locations are indicated with symbols on the map.

When alerted, If the place is suitable for battle the Caretaker would create a Sideways bubble and the player will be pulled in. He cannot receive damage outside of the bubble. His hole in the chest is the weak spot, hitting it will count as a headshot.


Caretaker can attack players in three ways:

  • Beam Attack: After a short charge-up, a pink laser beam comes out of his chest, dealing 8 damage per tick.
  • Smash Attack: Caretaker slams the ground, the shockwave damage depends on how far the player is (20 to 60 damage).
  • Snap Attack: A pink electric web will come out of his hand and will stun the player for a second, dealing 20 damage.


The Caretaker drops 5 Legendary weapons, Healing Items and Cube Monster Parts when eliminated.
