Characters are AIs introduced in Fortnite: Battle Royale, in Chapter 2: Season 5. They can be found all over the Apollo Island. A full list of Characters can be found in the Character Collection Book.

They're most likely from outside The Loop as they can talk, ignore The Storm and remember the player's action from other matches.

Skills & Behaviors

Characters can do a great list of things when talked to by players which includes giving Quests, and selling and upgrading Items. some can be dueled for a Weapon and hired to eliminate other players, selling and upgrading Weapons, Healing Items, and Materials which can be upgraded by them and purchased when players give them Bars.

Characters will have a message bubble above their heads as a symbol to allow players to locate them. Much like Fish, encountering new Characters fills out a player's Character Collection Book. Characters will attack players if attacked, they also have a considerable amount of Health and will drop a Common weapon when eliminated.

Character Types


They can be used to purchase Items from, ranging from Common to Exotic (Excluding Mythic), start Quests and Bounties from, and be hired, acting like a hacked Stark Robot. Most Characters are not hostile, and will only attack the player when attacked first, or when Dueled for loot.


Like Bosses, these Characters will attack a player on sight but when eliminated, they will turn into a glitchy ghost form and become interactable. Hostile Characters will often drop Legendary, Epic or Rare gear, Healing Items and Bars. They are often identified by their unique Outfit Styles.
