Fortnite is fun and full of experiences! The players come across new challenges all the time. If you’re a Fortnite fanatic, you must be acquainted with these basic epic challenges. However, for part-time players, some tasks might seem tricky and require explanation. The same is true for Chapter 2 of Season 5. In this chapter, the player needs to get intel from the characters scattered throughout the map to complete the mission. While it might look tricky at first, the task is quite simple. Here is how to get intel from a character in Fortnite:
Find the Right Characters and Do the Talking
If you wish to get intel from the characters, all you need to do is speak with them. However, you must know that not every NPC character can offer you intel. You need to find the right character that provides the option to buy intel from a character in exchange for gold bars.
One thing to note here is that NPC characters are relatively new characters. So, you might not be aware of their exact location. Also, only a few characters sell the information or intel you’re looking for. Not all NPCs offer the intel. When you’re talking to these characters, you might end up thinking you’re on the wrong path. But fret not, you’re not.
Now, let’s have a look at the characters who are guaranteed to provide you with intel.
A Few Characters Who Are Guaranteed to Offer Intel
- Ragnarok on the west of Holly Hedges at the Viking Vessel west.
- Lexa on one of the buildings to the west of Hunter’s Haven
- Kyle at Lumber Lodge on south shore of the island or in the Weeping Woods (in RV Park)
- Bunker Jonesy on the south shore of the map on the Camp Cold Island or at the Shipwreck Cove
Approaching the Characters and Collecting Intel
The process to get intel from a character is simple. You need to find them, approach them, and speak with them. Once you start speaking with them, you will find an option to buy intel. Make sure you bring the currency with you (that is Gold Bars).
From the above characters, Ragnarok (at Holy Hedges or Viking Vessel) and Lexa (at the Hunter’s Haven) will charge 10 gold bars. They will provide you with information about the nearest treasure chests. The Holly Hedges Kyle, on the other hand, will tell you about the nearby campfires. Bunker Jonesy will show you Bigfoot’s location.
Where to Find the NPCs
Find these characters in areas like Sweaty Sands, Apple Orchard, Holly Hedges, East Shore, Camp Cod Island, Shipwreck Cove, Retail Row, Lumber Lodge, etc. Offer them gold, get the intel, and you will get through the challenge. However, make sure you keep the gold bars handy because all characters will need them in exchange for intel.
The fastest piece of information/intel a player can get is the one that leads them to loot the chests. There are some NPCs that will help you learn about the location of the nearby crates. However, only a few of them can be reached at fixed spawns. These characters will help you complete the mission in one go. So, look for the NPCs that have fixed spawns like Ragnarok at Holly Hedges and Lexa at the Hunter’s Haven.
These two are friendly NPCs and you can easily reach them as they are available around popular landmarks. However, it is crucial that you keep your guard up because there are many competitors and enemy players lurking in the area. These enemies with more experience points can be a threat to you. Make sure you open a few chests and get the loot now and then so that you can complete the mission in one go.
What Happens When You Complete the Mission?
Once you complete the mission, you will earn 20k experience points. It is a step closer to reaching the Battle Pass tier 100. If you haven’t reached tier 100 yet, hurry up! The final week is approaching!
