That number has risen once more. Now, an 18th NPC can be found in Fortnite. Beach Brutus, a summer-themed variant of the Brutus NPC from Chapter 2 Season 7 was added to the game. Now, players need to find him in order to fill out their NPC collection book.
Beach Brutus is a highly sought after NPC, as many players are eager to complete their NPC collection book (again).
Finding Beach Brutus in Fortnite
Beach Brutus is an appropriate name, as this version of Brutus patrols Believer Beach. He could be here for security, likely in lieu of the highly-anticipated live event coming to Fortnite and Believer Beach. On the other hand, he may just really enjoy the beach and not even an alien invasion bothers him.
Beach Brutus can be found in the northwest corner of Believer Beach, patrolling the sand in front of the water. Beach Brutus is not a hostile NPC at first, so there's no need to get into a gunfight with him in order to speak with him.
Upon speaking with him, he offers various quests involving damage and can allow players to tip the bus driver. Once players find Beach Brutus and interact with him, they will get credit for it in their NPC collection book.
Beach Brutus is Fortnite NPC 18 and will probably not be the last one to join the fight against the aliens. Then again, he may just be here to enjoy the beach while there are no crowds yet.
Beach Brutus, while he is an NPC, is also a skin in the item shop (much like other NPCs) and costs 1,200 V-Bucks. Players can find Fortnite NPC 18 Beach Brutus in the game now.
