Overnight, Epic Games continued the trend of adding NPCs to Fortnite Season 8, this time bringing Nitehare and Raven to the island. Both NPCs were data-mined previously and even had their Punchcard quests leaked early. As with previous non-playable characters in Season 8, players can find these two NPCs on the map, start their respective questlines and earn Battle Pass XP.
This article will focus specifically on Nitehare. The undead rabbit skin was originally released in Chapter 1 of Fortnite and was a fan-favorite skin for some time. It doesn’t appear to be a coincidence that Epic decided to implement Nitehare so close to Halloween and in time for Fortnitemares. The undead bunny looks menacing and fits in perfectly with the season’s theme.
Finding Nitehare on the Fortnite map
Nitehare is located in an unnamed location on the Season 8 map. While this makes it a little tougher to find them, players shouldn’t have much trouble after locating them once.
Like other NPCs in Fortnite, Nitehare patrols the location in which they are found. This means that they likely won’t be in the same spot that players found them in a previous match. Players can find Nitehare around the Fortnite Radio Station, which is east of Craggy Cliffs and west of Steamy Stacks. They’re either inside of the radio station building or patrolling the area outside.
Once players find Nitehare in this location, they can talk to them to start their questline. The questline Hop Awake sets players off to complete five Punchcard quests for 30,000 XP each. The XP goes straight to their Battle Pass in Season 8. Players can find out how to complete the Nitehare Punchcard quests in a previous article. Luckily, they’re not too difficult to complete and players should earn 150,000 XP fairly quickly.
