How To Recruit New Villagers

You can recruit up to five villagers in total, but first, you need to build a Village Square with ten Wood and ten Granite. Once you’ve done this, NPCs will start to visit your village. If you speak with them, they will ask to stay the night.

Some specific Fortnite characters have certain requirements before they appear. For example, Meowscles will appear in villages with more housing decorations.

If you speak to them a second time, you can invite them to come and live in your village by selecting the ‘Live in my village!’ option.

You can only do this if your village has space both in terms of village upgrade size and a free bed for them to stay in.

As you upgrade your village, you will expand the number of villagers you can invite.
