As the new season continues, lots of changes are occurring on the Fortnite island. Aside from map changes, crafting abilities, animals and much more, it seems fans might be getting another NPC in-game. A new leak by HYPEX on Twitter suggests that Fortnite is getting Sparkplug back.
The tweet also gives information about where she is, what she will sell, and what she says during interactions.
Sparkplug's NPC arrival in Fortnite
HYPEX’s tweet reveals that Sparkplug can be visited at either Lazy Lake, Weeping Woods, or the Power Dam. The latter seems like the most fitting site for Sparkplug, but fans will have to wait for confirmation.
Aside from this, it’s rumored that she will be giving services for upgrades and selling eight mechanical parts.
These new NPCs that reside in specific POIs sell items that help players get an advantage. Mechanical parts would be good to have around to upgrade Bows, Shotguns, and Rifles. So, all in all, it’ll be a big help to be able to buy several items from her if confirmed.
Lastly, she has a few lines set for when users interact with her. The first two lines above seem pretty standard for NPC conversations, but players can get a special message if they are using the Dummy skin.
Sparkplug tugs at a joke about how she hopes the Dummy didn’t crash another car. This is a fun nod to when the Dummy skin was introduced, when its use was teased as being test dummies for the cars re-intorduced to the game.
All in all, fans may see some more NPCs arrive with upcoming Fortnite updates. Season 6 has a lot more characters to reveal and there's a bigger story waiting to unfold.
