According to some new Fortnite Chapter 3 leaks, the battle royale title is set to add another vehicle for players to commandeer soon, this time in the form of a Tank.

Fortnite Chapter 3 has quickly won over fans because of its various new additions like Klombo dinosaurs and the Pizza Party item, with even more content being added throughout Season 1’s progression.

Now, it seems that Epic Games are focusing their efforts towards adding a brand-new Fortnite vehicle to the Island, as some leaks are claiming that the battle royale title is set to receive a Tank soon.

According to prominent data miner ‘HYPEX,’ the Fortnite game files feature a new vehicle with the codename “TreadVehicle,” and this is reportedly a Tank that the developers are currently working on.

The leaker shared an image of the rumored vehicle’s design, and the most notable features were the tread wheels along with the giant drill in the Tank’s front which you could use to open new pathways.

The tread wheels imply that the Tank will move slowly, making you an easy target, but HYPEX claims that it includes seats for both the driver and passenger, so your teammate could tag along to provide cover fire.

At the time of writing, there are no other details available about this vehicle, so we don’t know if it will allow you to dig underground and then pop out underneath your opponents for a surprise attack.

It’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so take this information with a grain of salt. With all the frequent content updates that Fortnite gets, we could see this Tank appear soon.

Agent Jonesy and The Foundation in Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 3 features a variety of different characters that you can visit around the island, so here’s the location of each recruitable NPC and how to hire them.

You can run into 22 NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1, with each character serving a different function like revealing future Storm Circles in exchange for Gold Bars or selling healing items.

Some of these characters can also be recruited for the right price, and one of the Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 Foundation Quests requires you to hire an NPC and travel 1000 meters with them.

Here’s the location of each hireable NPC in Fortnite along with how to recruit them.

Which Fortnite NPCs can you hire?

You can only hire 6 NPCs in Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1, and the character that you choose will follow you everywhere you go on the Island while fighting off any enemy players that decide to attack you.

Here are all the NPCs you can hire and their locations:

  • Agent Jones – Spawns at a random Seven Outpost each match.
  • Brainiac – In the central building at The Joneses.
  • Galactico – At the football pitch in Tilted Towers.
  • Jonesy the First – At the northern side of The Joneses.
  • Lt. John Llama – Inside a cabin northeast of Covert Cavern.
  • The Visitor – Near the Launchpad east of Sanctuary.

Some of these characters are more reliable picks than others, with Galactico spawning consistently in the loot-filled Tilted Towers while Agent Jones spawns completely at random in each match.

Now that you’ve decided which character you wish to recruit, you’ll need to visit their locations and simply approach the NPC in order to hire them. This won’t be cheap, as hiring them will cost you 95 Gold Bars.

Here’s how to hire NPCs in Fortnite:

  1. Approach the NPC
  2. Interact to begin dialogue
  3. Select ‘Hire NPC’ on the right side of the dialogue wheel
  4. The NPC will now follow and fight for you

That covers everything you need to know about hiring NPCs in Fortnite. Simply recruit one and have them follow you around as you travel 1,000 meters in order to complete Chapter 3, Season 1’s Foundation Quest.

Unlocking The Foundation skin is quick and easy in Fortnite Chapter 3 – you just need to own the Battle Pass and visit Mighty Monument, a Seven Outpost, and Sanctuary.

Fortnite players will need to complete challenges to unlock all of the Foundation cosmetics, which range from easy to quite difficult.

The challenges are split into two parts, where you need to complete the first six before you can complete the next five. Here’s every The Foundation challenge in Fortnite, and each of the rewards you can earn.

  • The Foundation skin: Visit Mighty Monument, a Seven Outpost, and Sanctuary (3)
  • Foundation’s Fortune Emoticon: Search chests or ammo boxes at Covert Canyon (3)
  • True Foundation Spray: Use shield potions in a single match (4)
  • Foundation’s Plasma Spike Harvesting Tool: Deal melee damage to opponents (100)
  • Foundation’s Mantle Back Bling: Snipe an opponent with a sniper rifle while crouching (1)
  • Foundational Wrap: Hire a character and travel 1,000 meters with them (1,000)
  • Tactical Visor Toggle Emote: Assist in eliminating Gunnar (1)
  • The Foundation skin – Combat Elite Style: Deal headshot damage to players with common or uncommon weapons (500)
  • The Foundation skin – Tactical Style: Deal damage to opponents from above with SMGs or Shotguns (1,000)
  • The Rocket Wing Glider: Land at a Seven Outpost, then finish top 10 (2)
  • The Rocket Wing Glider – Stealth: Complete all of the Foundation Quests (4)

Most of these Quests can be completed naturally as you play, but a couple of them may prove quite difficult.

Only a few characters can be hired, so check where to find Agent Jones, Brainiac, Galactico, Jonesy The First, Lt. John Llama, Shanta, and The Visitor in our NPC location guide.

Gunnar can be found inside the new Covert Cavern POI, and you’ll need to eliminate him to get your hands on the keycard and open the vault. You only need to assist in taking him down, so feel free to land a few shots and leave him for someone else to deal with.

Dealing damage from above is all about taking the high ground, so make sure you’re building above your opponents during fights. And landing at the Seven Outpost and finishing top 10 is all about surviving, so play passively if you need to.
