Fortnite Season 6 brought back the NPC services of the last season. Here’s how to hire a character in Fortnite Season 6.

Fortnite Season 6 is finally here, with new mechanics, map changes, and a new crafting system. One of the things that stayed from Season 5 was the NPCs scattered around the map. These NPCs offer the same services as Season 5, with some enhancements for the new season.

You can still hire NPCs to help fight your battles for you. This wasn’t the most popular NPC service in Season 5, but it still has its place. Here’s where you need to go if you want to hire an NPC in Fortnite Season 6.

Hire NPCs in Fortnite Season 6

There are plenty of NPCs around the Fortnite island, but only a handful of them allow you to hire them for their services. Epic nearly cut this number in half in Season 6. Here are the NPCs that let you hire them to fight by your side.

  • Deadfire
  • Crustina
  • Cluck
  • Lara Croft
  • Power Chord
  • Stage Slayer

Unlike Season 5, all of the Season 6 hirable NPCs only have one spawn location, so finding them is quite easy. There are, however, far fewer NPCs that offer this service. This may have to do with the lack of popularity of this feature last season.

Here’s a map of all of the hirable NPCs on the Fortnite map, courtesy of Fortnite.gg.

While hiring NPCs is a viable strategy, it might not be the best use of your Gold Bars. They help distract enemies in Solo games, but they aren’t much of a help in team modes. In fact, they can even get in your way from time to time when they break your walls, trying to help.

There will undoubtedly be a challenge linked to hiring NPCs in Season 6, so it’s helpful to know where they are at any rate. We’ll update this article if Epic change the spawn locations of any of the hirable NPCs

How to jump off of a diving board in Fortnite Season 3

A Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 challenge requires players to jump off of a diving board and here’s a quick guide to completing it.

Fortnite Dive Board

Fortnite players must search for a diving board and jump off of it this week. This will complete one of the latest Week 3 challenges and provide them with 15,000 XP.

Quests and challenges have always been the most reliable source of XP for Fortnite players. The developers release three Daily Quests every day and seven Weekly Quests every week.

Weekly quests for Week 3 of Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 have arrived, and here’s a guide to completing the one based on jumping off a diving board.

Where to find Diving Boards in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

To complete the Weekly quest, players first need to find one Diving Board. It is located near Rocky Reels and the exact location is marked (blue marker) in the image below:

The diving board is placed on the top of a massive rock in the desert region south of Rocky Reels. It basically gives players a small push and they can dive into the river flowing underneath.

The quest requires you to jump off of a diving board three times, and they don’t need to be unique. This means that the challenge can be completed by jumping off of the aforementioned board repeatedly.

How to reach the diving board in Fortnite Season 3

Another thing to note is the accessibility of the diving board. There’s no way to reach the top of the massive boulder in Zero Build modes owing to the lack of ziplines. Jumping while sprinting might help but it is better to take on this challenge in modes with building enabled.

Obviously, players can directly land at the diving board near Rocky Reels in Zero Build modes but this will only allow them to jump off of it once.

All in all, completing the weekly challenge will grant players 15,000 XP. Seven new quests have been added this week and there will be an additional bonus for completing them. This implies that the total XP output will be over 200,000 which is equivalent to almost three levels in the Battle Pass.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 quests are finally here. Players can reach maximum shields at a temple location to get 15,000 XP.

Temple in Fortnite

Fortnite expects players to max out on their shields at a temple location for a Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 challenge. It grants 15,000 XP.

The XP grind in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 has been nothing less than frightful for a majority of loopers. This explains why they desperately wait for new quests and challenges that can help them in leveling up.

Here’s a guide to completing the Week 3 quest based on reaching max shields at a temple.

Where to find temples in Fortnite Season 3

At the moment, there are three temples on the Fortnite map:

Tumbledown Temple

Tumbledown Temple is a landmark located east of Rocky Reels and south of Sanctuary. Players can use this image for reference:

Tiny Temple

Tiny Temple is another landmark where players can complete the Week 3 challenge. You can head southeast from The Daily Bugle or directly land at the location marked in the image below:

The Temple

As the name suggests, The Temple is the most prominent temple on the Artemis island. Here, you can expect great loot which naturally includes a ton of shield items. Having said that, it’s possible that the competition will be much higher than the aforementioned temples.

The Temple is located northeast of The Daily Bugle:

At any of these locations, players will basically find ancient runes and the aim is to reach max shields there. You can either land here directly or collect shield items from other major locations and use them in the temples.

Reaching max shields in Fortnite means that the loopers must have 100 shield points. This can be achieved through a wide range of items:

  • Small Shield Potion– provides 25 shield but cannot be used after the shield reaches 50
  • Shield Potion– provides 50 shield
  • Shield Keg– 4 shield/second
  • Klomberries– 10 shield
  • Slurp Mushrooms
  • Chug Splash– 20 shield

All shield items can be found on the island as floor loot and inside chests.

The seven weekly quests for Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 3 will grant a total of 105,000 XP. The game also provides a bonus for completing a certain number of weekly quests and the total reward should be close to 234,000.

Fortnite Island Hopper quests: How to unlock achievements in Parkour Universe

Fortnite players can enter the Parkour Universe map and get 10,000 XP by completing a simple Island Hopper quest.

Published

on

Fortnite Parkour Universe map

The No Sweat Summer event in Fortnite has introduced maps such as Parkour Universe. Players can complete Island Hopper quests in these maps for free cosmetics and XP rewards.

With Fortnite v21.10, six Island Hopper quests are available to players. Each quest grants 10,000 XP and completing all six helps in unlocking certain free cosmetics. These cosmetics have a tropical design which naturally suits the No Sweat Summer and Vibin’ themes.

Here’s how you can unlock achievements in Parkour Universe and get 10,000 XP.

Easiest achievements in Fortnite’s Parkour Universe map

You don’t really need to complete all 12 stages to unlock achievements in Parkour Universe. In fact, completing two stages and getting a secret token is enough.

Secret Token location in Autumn Plains

Autumn Plains is one of the easiest stages in Parkour Universe. The route is quite straightforward and there are several huts mounted on logs. Only one of these huts will be accessible and players will be able to spot a blue token inside it from a distance.

For better clarity, the token is inside the hut which is located right behind the first checkpoint in Autumn Plains.

Secret Token location in Splashy Assemblies

Splashy Assemblies is another Parkour Universe map that is easy and precise. You have to simply follow the in-game hints to reach the first checkpoint.

The secret token is located underneath the first checkpoint’s platform. Players must be careful while jumping from the platform’s edge as landing in the water will compel them to restart.

The ‘Unlock Achievements in Parkour Universe’ Island Hopper quest requires loopers to unlock three achievements. Finishing the aforementioned stages and finding the secret token in any stage should complete this quest and grant 10,000 XP.

It is worth noting that the Island Hopper quests are glitched for many loopers in the community. Even after completing the desired tasks, the game fails to track their progress. It is common for such bugs to arrive following a major update, and the best way to get rid of them is by restarting Fortnite.
