Recruiting NPC's in Fortnite Season 6 is an excellent way to add extra firepower to the team. They are good bullet sponges and deal reasonably high amounts of damage.
Despite not being able to heal, hiring NPC's is a good way to win.
However, one or two NPC's may not be enough to actually help win a game as the AI is rudimentary and actual players will be able to work around the strategy.
But what if players could hire not one or two but rather nine NPC's to help in Fortnite Season 6? One content creator has figured it out.
How to hire nine NPC's in Fortnite Season 6?
A YouTuber, By Post, has figured out a way to hire all NPC's in Fortnite Season 6. Suffice to say, the results were terrific.
To start, players need to team up and drop in specific locations individually to secure these NPC's. It may not be as simple as it sounds, as they will be dropping alone into three different starting points.
Each player will have to hire three NPC's per head to maximize time usage before the circle starts to close in. Gamers must consider practicing each of the starting drop points as a team to memorize each NPC's exact location.
Each of the three squadmates will have to begin at these primary locations, hiring NPC's along the way and regrouping at a common site on the map. They must keep in mind that depending on how the circle closes, the rendezvous point may vary.
They can consider using the newly-added Guardian Towers in Fortnite Season 6 for a speed boost if needed
Meet the NPC's
The first group of three NPC's is Lara Croft, Stage Slayer, and Crustina, located at Stealthy Stronghold, FN Radio, and Pizza Pit.
Players should start by dropping at the last site, head to FN Radio, and finally towards Stealthy Stronghold. Depending on how the circle closes, players can also go vice versa.
The second group of NPC's is Deadfire, Cluck, and Gutbomb, located at Sheriff's Office, Primal Pond, and Durr Burger.
Players can start at either at Sheriff's Office or Durr Burger. However, starting at the former will allow them to recruit two NPC's before pushing on to the third.
The third group of NPC's is Power Chord, Bandolette, and Big Chuggus, located at Apres Ski, Flushed Factory, and Shanty Town. Players can again drop at the second site to start from and either move word towards Shanty Town or Apres Ski, or vice versa.
Each NPC will cost 95 gold bars to hire. Players should consider using vehicles, shockwave grenades, and even chickens, added into Fortnite Season 6, for maximum mobility.
