There are eight NPC Characters you can Hire in Fortnite Agent Jones, Brainiac, Cuddlepool, Galactico, Jonesy The First, Lt. John Llama, Shanta, and The Visitor. One of them, Agent Jones, has a chance to spawn in four different locations — four Seven Outposts in the corners of the island.

To hire one of them, approach them and talk. One of the icons in the dialogue wheel will be a person-like silhouette with a little plus sign on it. Select that one and hand over 95 Gold Bars. They’ll automatically equip a gun, and start following and fighting alongside you.
