Fortnite Season 8 features various wacky NPCs you can visit around the island, so here are all of the Fortnite NPC locations for whenever you might need to find these individuals.
Along with the beginning of Fortnite Season 8 came the introduction of several new NPCs such as Carnage and Fabio Sparklemane. Some of these can be found around the island and by spending Gold Bars, these NPCs can reveal future Storm Circles, give you a Rift, or turn you into a Prop.
To complete your collection of every character, you need to find all 15 scattered around the Fortnite map. Some are even necessary to complete the Character Punchcard Quests. This can be tricky as Fortnite doesn’t tell you where they’re located, but we have the location of every NPC to help you out.
Here’s every Fortnite Season 8 NPCs and their location on the updated map.

Thanks to the website Fortnite.GG, we’ve got the location of every NPC discovered in Fortnite Season 8 so far. Fortnite.GG has also marked each character to tell you if they’ll reveal the future storm circle or turn you into a Prop for the right price.

Bear in mind that not every one of these NPCs is guaranteed to spawn in every match of Fortnite, so you may arrive and not find them there. Also, NPCs are known to move around, so we’ll update you if they are found in any more locations.
More NPCs are expected to be added over the course of the season, so we’ll update this article with any new character and their location.
As Fortnite Season 8 continues, you’ll be tasked with finding several of these NPCs to complete each Character Punchcard. So it’s well worth studying up and learning their locations to give you the edge in completing these.

Fortnite Fourth Birthday event: Quests & rewards
It’s Fortnite’s fourth birthday! Complete special event challenges and earn cosmetic rewards with our handy Quests guide.
It’s hard to believe that it’s been four years since Fortnite began taking over the gaming world, but it’s true. Once again, Epic is celebrating in style with a special in-game Fourth Fortnite Birthday event, complete with Quests and rewards.
Fortnite Season 8 is a throwback in many ways, mainly thanks to the return of Kevin and his fellow alien Cubes. That’s why it’s fitting that the new season coincides with the anniversary of the battle royale’s release.
So, to celebrate, Epic is launching a Fourth Fortnite Birthday event for players to dive into, packed with plenty of Quests and rewards.
How long does Fortnite’s Fourth Birthday event last
Fittingly, the Fortnite Birthday event festivities will last for four days, ending on September 28, 2021. The game’s official birthday is in the middle of the event on September 26.
Throughout the Fortnite Birthday event, players will be able to spot birthday cakes scattered around the island. Eating these baked goods will offer valuable health and shield boosts.
Birthday presents will also be returning from last year. These can be thrown onto the ground and contain rare loot.
Fourth Fortnite Birthday Quests & rewards
As part of the celebrations, players will have the chance to complete themed Quests to earn birthday rewards and XP.
There are four Quests in total, although the good news is that you only need to complete three of them to earn all the cosmetic rewards, the “4 Me???” Back Bling, “Hooplah Hammer“ Pickaxe, and “4? Score!” Emoticon.
The four Quests are:
- Throw Birthday Presents (4)
- Consume Birthday Cakes in different matches (4)
- Dance in front of cakes (4)
- Collect resources from balloon decorations (4)
Where to dance in front of cakes: Fortnite cake locations
While players will find the other three tasks randomly around the island, the cakes that players need to dance in front of are in set locations.
The good news is that every named location has a cake, so you can choose where you want to go, whether it’s your favorite landing spot or a handy rotation.
We’ve marked every cake on the map below.

How to get new Fortnite Eddie Brock skin: Price and Venom emote
Venom: Let There Be Carnage’s Eddie Brock skin is now live! Find out how to get your hands on it, and how much it costs.
Fortnite has become well-known for its exciting mainstream crossovers, and next up is Marvel’s Eddie Brock and Venom, the symbiotic anti-hero from the upcoming Let There Be Carnage movie.
Fortnite’s Season 8 shook things up again, reintroducing Punchcard Quests and allowing players to vote on items and weapons they want to be unvaulted. The new season’s Battle Pass also included Carnage, who is set to play the villain in Venom’s upcoming movie which releases on October 1.
While there’s already a version of Venom in the game, players can now get their hands on the symbiote’s host Eddie Brock, complete with special emotes and cosmetics. Here’s how you can add it to your inventory.
Fortnite Eddie Brock skin
Inspired by Venom: Let There Be Carnage, the new Eddie Brock skin not only lets you play as Tom Hardy’s character from the movie but actually transform into Venom during matches using the special Venom Unleashed emote.
Once you’re finished tormenting enemies as Venom, you can use the emote to transition back to Brock, or you can equip the Venom skin in your Fortnite inventory to use the Spider-Man character permanently.

On top of this, players will also get the Symbiote Scythe pickaxe, along with the Different Tasty Snack Emoticon as part of the bundle. The Symbiote Trail Contrail and Sail Glider are also available to purchase from the Item Shop.
Fortnite Eddie Brock skin price
The Fortnite Eddie Brock bundle will set players back 2,000 V-Bucks, but there’s good news if you already own the original Venom skin released in November 2020, as you’ll only have to pay 800 V-Bucks to get your hands on Eddie Brock.
The Fortnite Eddie Brock skin is available right now from Fortnite’s Item Shop, with Venom: Let There Be Carnage releasing in theatres on October 1.

Is Fortnite dying? 2021 player count
How many people play Fortnite? There are different marks we can look at to give a view of the Fortnite player count in the year of 2021.
Fortnite has been one of the most popular video games ever, but is Fortnite dying? We’ve got all the statistics you need, including the 2021 Fortnite player count.
When Fortnite Battle Royale launched in September 2018, few could have imagined that it would dominate pop culture in the manner it has since then. From musicians like Marshmello and Ariana Grande to athletes like LeBron James, Epic Game’s free-to-play title has dominated gaming for almost three years.
Of course, it’s not just the stars that have flocked to Fortnite. The game’s free-to-play status meant that anyone could download, jump in, and play with their friends, and millions of gamers around the world have done just that over the years.
How many people have played Fortnite, though, and how many are actively playing in 2021. We’ve got all the information you need to know what the Fortnite player count is and if Fortnite is dying or not.
Is Fortnite dying?
Unfortunately, Epic Games don’t keep track of how many players are actively playing the game at any one moment. Thankfully, there are some statistics that we can use to estimate the current Fortnite player count.

Using PlayerCounter, we can see that anywhere from 6 – 12 million people are playing Fortnite daily. This number increases on special occasions, like in-game events or new seasons, driving the number closer to 15 million players.
With this information, it is tough to say that Fortnite is dying, as it still has a considerable playerbase who enjoy everything the game offers.
Fortnite player count
Now, Epic Games does not regularly provide live updates regarding how many people have played or are currently playing. Still, there are some benchmarks that the game has reached since 2018 that give the community an idea of how large the Fortnite player count is present.
August of 2018 saw a Fortnite player count of 78,000,000, which is not surprising, as this was during the height of popularity during the game’s rise into stardom.
2019 saw a concurrent player count of 12,500,000 in the game, and 2020 saw a record-high number of people playing when 15,300,000 came together to experience the Galactus event.
2020 also saw Epic Games report that Fortnite had 350 million registered accounts. However, one player can create multiple accounts, so registered accounts do not exactly mean 350,000,000 players. A year later, that number has likely increased and could even be close to 400 million total accounts and would mean Fortnite is far from dying anytime soon.
