How to purchase services from characters in Fortnite

What kind of services?

Fortnite has amassed quite a lot of characters over the years, from the beloved Peely to the iconic Jonesy. The best part, though, is they’re not just for show as you can actually purchase their services in Chapter Five, season two.

Or at least, that’s what the Fortnite Dummy Joyride questline suggests. That said, if you’re here, I’m sure you’ve never seen the option to purchase any services from any NPC in the game. Chances are you’ve faced off against a relentless Poseidon, hurling sticky bombs like his life depends on it. Or maybe you snagged a gold Drumgun during Midas‘ fleeting island visit.

Despite Fortnite‘s confusing talk, buying services is pretty easy. In this guide, I’ll show you how to complete the purchase services from characters quest in Fortnite.

To purchase services from characters in Fortnite Chapter Five, season two, just buy weapons or healing items from them, or hire them to help you in the arena.

The term “purchase services” can be pretty confusing, but you’re probably already used to approaching NPCs to purchase an Epic gun or hire them to help you deal damage or heal your teammates in Zero Build or Battle Royale. If you haven’t, here’s how to do it:

  1. Approach an NPC and press the Interact button.
  2. Select an option from the interaction wheel.
  3. If you’re trying to complete this quest, purchase first and hire last. Hiring closes the interaction wheel, while purchasing is available until stock is depleted.

This quest from Dummy’s Joyride is asking you to do just that three times. In fact, you could purchase the same service from the same NPC three times, as long as you’re not hiring them, just to knock the quest out quickly and get 10,000 EXP as a reward.

There’s a total of 23 characters you can purchase services from in Fortnite Chapter Five, season two. I strongly suggest you go for Dummy in Piney Pumps since you’ll have to complete other quests near him.

Regardless of who you pick, here’s a complete list of every character you can purchase services from:
