Fortnite Leak Shows NPCs Are in It for the Long Haul

Fortnite NPCs Are Probably Here to Stay

Reliable Fortnite leaker HypeX has officially confirmed the ongoing existence of NPCs as Season 5: Zero Point flips over to Season 6 in the middle of the month. NPCs will apparently have new features added to them as the map continues to evolve, with players being able to sell loot to NPCs in exchange for gold bars which could be spent on upgrading weapons, purchasing mythics, etc. Fortnite is available for free right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, Nintendo Switch, Android, Mac, and PC.

While HypeX originally expected the new leaked features to be added to NPCs during Season 5: Zero Point, it looks like the change will be happening next season. The current season of Fortnite comes to a close on March 15th, with an expected event having to live up to the high standards set by the recent Marvel season ending with Galactus trying to destroy the Zero Point at the centre of the map.

Alongside the HypeX Fortnite leak was a money bags icon that is expected to be a new option when talking to Fortnite NPCs. “When you sell an expensive item the NPC is supposed to do the “Make It Rain” emote.. I have no idea if they scrapped this idea or if its gonna have limits though… Also, the prices for selling loot to NPCs are the same prices as weapon upgrades.”
