Hiring specialists in Fortnite is a great way to get the upper hand on your opponents, and players can give commands to these NPCs.

Now as part of the Spring Breakout challenges, players are able to give these NPCs commands to complete a task and earn some XP in the process.

Every Hired Specialist Location in Fortnite

To hire a specialist, you will, of course need to know where to find them on the map. There are a total of 8 Hired Specialists.

You will also need between 200 to 300 gold bars to hire a specialist, and here is where you can locate them:

  1. Garrison – Southwest on the map
  2. Sludge – Steamy Springs
  3. RemedyTower southwest of Slappy Shores
  4. Polar PatrollerWest of frozen lake near Brutal Bastion
  5. Insight – Northwest of Brutal Bastion, near the unnamed building in the snow
  6. Munitions Expert – Breakwater Bay
  7. Longshot Tower on the west coast, west of The Citadel
  8. Triage TrooperSoutheast of Lonely Labs

Of course, having a specialist on your side will certainly help you win more games but you will also need to know which guns are the best in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2!
