You can only hire 6 NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1, and the character that you choose will follow you everywhere you go on the Island while fighting off any enemy players that decide to attack you.

Here are all the NPCs you can hire and their locations:

  • Agent Jones – Spawns at a random Seven Outpost each match.
  • Brainiac – In the central building at The Joneses.
  • Galactico – At the football pitch in Tilted Towers.
  • Jonesy the First – At the northern side of The Joneses.
  • Lt. John Llama – Inside a cabin northeast of Covert Cavern.
  • The Visitor – Near the Launchpad east of Sanctuary.

Some of these characters are more reliable picks than others, with Galactico spawning consistently in the loot-filled Tilted Towers while Agent Jones spawns completely at random in each match.
