Halfway through Season 1 of Fortnite Chapter 3, the character that kicked the whole thing off is finally able to be unlocked. The Foundation, played by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, is officially on the Battle Royale island, and with him came a series of challenges called Foundation Quests that reward you a series of cosmetics themed around the character. One of these challenges tasks you with traveling 1000 meters with a character that you have hired to aid in your fight. This challenge can be fairly difficult if you don’t know where these characters in question are, but this guide should make things nice and clear. This guide will show you where to hire characters in Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 1.
Where To Hire A Character In Fortnite
There are currently six NPCs that you can recruit/hire to complete this challenge. While they don’t come cheap, each of them costs 95 Gold Bars, a currency that you can get through completing Bounties. Make sure you have enough gold before you go out to track down one of these hirable characters. Once you have the cash to spend, You can head out to look for the characters. The NPCs that are available to use are listed below, with their locations marked on the map.
- Agent Jones (Blue) – Randomly spawns at one of the Seven Outposts.
- Jonesy the First (Green) – Can be hired at the northern part The Joneses.
- Brainiac (Pink) – Found at The Joneses in the center building.
- Lt. John Llama (Red) – At a cabin found to the northeast of Covert Cavern.
- Galactico (Yellow) – Seen on the soccer pitch at Tilted Towers.
- The Visitor (Black) – Near the Launchpad east of Sanctuary.
Fortnite Update 19.20 Patch Notes for February 1
It is best to ignore Agent Jones because he will randomly spawn at one of the Seven Outposts at the start of each game, so you aren’t guaranteed to find him when you make the trek to one of these locations. However, if you happen to find him when completing the other Foundation Quest of visiting a Sanctuary, Seven Outpost, and Mighty Monument Mountain, go for it and hire that man. To hire the character, talk to them and choose the “Recruit” option. Once you find an NPC and hire them, you will need to travel 1000 meters when they are with you. They will follow you until you or they die. If that happens, don’t worry; just join a new game and hire another NPC as the challenge is carried over between games. Once you complete this challenge, you will be rewarded with the Foundational Wrap.
Fortnite Chapter 3: Season 1 is available on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS, and Android.
