Fortnite NPC locations – where to duel Mancake, Ronin, and Shanta

A guide to locate all of the Fortnite NPCs in Chapter 3 Season 1 including Mancake, Ronin, and Shanta to help you complete season challenges

Ronin, one of the new Fortnite NPCs is patrolling the base on top of the Covert Cavern.

Want to know where the Fortnite NPCs are? Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 is now live. NPCs aren’t as vital for completing challenges as in previous seasons. However, they still offer items that you can buy with Fortnite gold bars, or you can hire them to assist you in the match to get that sweet taste of victory and perhaps even a Fortnite victory crown.

Finding these NPCs can come in handy, particularly if you’re stuck finding items for some of the season challenges. If, for example, you need Klomberries to throw at a Fortnite Klombo you can always visit Haven who sells that item, instead of hunting for Klomberry bushes.

With each update, these NPCs are at risk of moving around, so you may find that a character you need is no longer where you left them. Others will appear in different locations in every match. We have every Fortnite NPC location marked on a map to help you find them, as well as a list of all of the special items you can buy.
