Behavior

The Henchbros are passive AI, meaning that they will not attack the player unless prompted. If attacked, either by damaging them or their vehicle, they will attack the player until they are eliminated.

The Henchbros will sometimes be seen driving a Prevalent GG2020 with the Radio on. Players can enter this car without being attacked.

History

Chapter 2: Season 4

  • At the start of the season, one remaining GHOST Henchman could be found at GHOST Flowers in Retail Row, seemingly living in a back room, seemingly celebrating GHOST winning against SHADOW
  • Similarly, one remaining SHADOW Henchman could be found at The Authority on the topmost level, where they appeared to be living next to a small shrine of Brutus, who seemed to be crying about SHADOW abandoning the island and leaving him alone.
  • Update v14.10: Both of these Henchmen move to Gas N’ Grub and meet. They have a rivalry and have an endless dance off until they are killed or distracted. They appear to have started a bond as they react to each other's dances with a mix of responses - those being cheering, clapping, laughing, and other responses conveyed through Fortnite Emotes.
  • Update v14.20: The duo become friends and moved to an unnamed hotel in Lazy Lake, and continued their friendship there. They used Toys, such as the Basketball and enjoyed some food.
  • Update v14.30: The two Henchmen moved to the bridge/buildings above Hydro 16, and were spotted walking around the area. They occasionally used emotes off both edges of the dam of Hydro 16. Eventually entering the building closest to Misty Meadows where while SHADOW goes to watch TV, GHOST looks around and uses one of the viewing telescopes on the look out. After which they group together and head back to the dam.
  • Update v14.40: During the Fortnitemares 2020 Event, the duo were found around Sweaty Sands just hanging out. For the duration of the event, they wore alternate heads: The SHADOW Henchmen wore the head of Hollowhead and the GHOST Henchmen wore the head of Jack Gourdon. The GHOST Henchman likely had no correlation with the Ghostly Ghost Henchmen inhabiting The Ruins.
  • Update v14.50: The Henchmen moved to Craggy Cliffs, primarily located at Sticks. After getting food they would wander around Craggy Cliffs and enter in the shops to buy camping equipment and supplies. Their pumpkin heads were now gone, and instead they both possessed Back Blings: The SHADOW Henchman wore the Precision back bling, while the GHOST Henchman wore the Raptor Satchel back bling.
  • Update v14.60: The duo sat together on the edge of the map, east of Camp Cod. They had camping equipment, believed to have been acquired from Craggy Cliffs. The SHADOW Henchman used the Pickin' emote and the GHOST Henchman used the Have a Seat emote. They both looked off into the eastern horizon as they waited for Galactus to arrive to the island.

Chapter 2: Season 5

  • Throughout the season, there was a small chance that the Henchmen duo would spawn out of IO Elevators, both looking disorientated and doing the Confused emote. This was the only place they could be found, and it was a small chance that they came out of any of the various Elevators around the map.

Chapter 2: Season 6

  • Both henchmen were seemingly absent during this season. Possibly due to being abducted sometime during it.

Chapter 2: Season 7

  • Update v17.10: They return in the Mothership's experiment area doing the Confused and Waterworks emotes, supposedly distraught.
    • Hotfix: The duo is back in the island, now residing in a small house south of Mount F8. Living casually and seemingly laughing at The Seven.
  • Content Update v17.10: The Duo arrives at Risky Reels, Watching a movie and hanging out. after a while GHOST suddenly gets the urge to go so SHADOW guides him to the bathrooms. After which they get some snacks at the stand and continue their hangout.
  • Update v17.20: The Duo reappears at Camp Cod. GHOST is resharpening his gun handling skills while SHADOW seems to be calculating something on a whiteboard and eyeing The Mothership.
  • Update v17.30: The Duo makes their way near Slurpy Swamp to overlook the abduction. It would appear SHADOW is calculating The Mothership's properties while its going on. GHOST however doesn't really understand and follows along.
  • Update v17.40: The Duo arrives near Coral Castle to watch its abduction too. Once they walk away from the whiteboard they appear to be fishing and later calling back to when they first meet at the Gas n' Grub, while even using the same dances they did to each other and playfully laughing along. They later walk to the campfire nearby and do the Hey Now! emote together.
  • Update v17.50: The Duo have disappeared without a trace, yet again.
  • Operation: Sky Fire: The Duo can be found trapped inside a chamber with Alien eggs surrounding them. Following the destruction of The Mothership, both of them can be seen falling next to The Looper as Apollo gets hammered with debris and cubes.

Chapter 2: Season 8

  • Update v18.00: After the events of Sky Fire, one surviving Trespasser gathered their supplies and took refuge in one of the abandoned houses at Pristine Point. Unlike the Henchmen Duo, they attacked players on sight possibly due to what happened to The Mothership.
  • Update v18.20: After some time to calm down the Trespasser became passive and would no longer open fire unless provoked.
  • Update v18.40: Later on in their time on the island they left their home and walked around the neighborhood, knocking on the houses to see if anyone was home. Unaware that it was abandoned.
  • The End (Chapter 2): With Apollo flipping over to Artemis it was unknown if any of the Henchbros survived. Fortunately they seemed to have made it and against all odds, survived.

Chapter 3: Season 3

  • Update v21.00: Following seasons with no knowledge on their whereabouts, the Henchmen Duo can be found trapped behind a pile of rubble in an unfinished mineshaft in Reality Falls. They also befriended the lonely Trespasser and are waiting to be freed, with the rubble pile having 5 trillion HP, and can be progressively damaged by players in games. The rubble itself can be "destroyed" by a Cow Catcher modified Car, but will reappear in future games.
    • 6/16/2022: The 5 trillion HP rubble pile is destroyed.
  • Update v21.10: Each game, The Henchbros are in a different place on the island, they can be emoting or driving around the island. If the Prevalent GG2020 that they were traveling in was stolen or destroyed, they will walk instead of drive.
  • Update v21.20: The Henchbros have successfully brought the IO Guard along and are now a full squad! They still do their regular activities and sometimes can split into random groups of two.

Trivia

  • Back in Chapter 2: Season 4. if a player were to aggravate the Henchmen Duo, the two would have a tendency to shoot the other accidentally and cause a fight with each other. This is likely due to the two Henchmen still being part of the GHOST and SHADOW factions internally. However with their friendship getting stronger this was no longer possible in Update v14.30.
  • The Henchmen's models changed between Chapter 2: Season 2 and Chapter 2: Season 3, wearing shorts instead of longer pants.
  • On the Chapter 2: Season 5 Legendary Quests "Eliminate IO Guards", eliminating them would count towards the quest.
    • Strangely. The IO Guard battle music would also play if they popped out. Despite not being part of the Imagined Order.
    • The GHOST Henchman was also mistakenly named "SHADOW Henchman" When looking in Battle labs or eliminated by him.
  • The Henchmen Duo did not make an appearance in Chapter 2: Season 6, Chapter 2: Season 8, Chapter 3: Season 1 or Chapter 3: Season 2, while the Trespasser didn't make an appearance in the first two seasons after Chapter 2: Season 8.
  • If separated, one of the henchmen will sometimes teleport to the other.
  • If one of the henchmen duo was eliminated, the other will sometimes start doing the Waterworks emote.
  • On July 30th 2021, Two Outfits named the GHOST Enforcer and SHADOW Enforcer were released with ties to the duo.
    • The following day, July 31st 2021 would see the release of the Hey Now! emote with the two Henchmen in the promotional video.
  • In The Chapter 3 Season 3 “No Sweat Summer Quests” “Make A Character Dance To A Boogie Bomb” Using A Boogie Bomb On Them Would Count Towards The Quest.
