Over the years, Fortnite has introduced a wide variety of skins and characters. While some skins just have an appealing design, others have interesting backstories as well.
Despite being a battle royale title, Fortnite has retained a complex plot around zero.
From Agent Jonesy to Dr. Slone, here are some Fortnite characters who not only were massive hits in the item shop, but also played an important role in the game’s plot.
Fortnite characters with the best backstories
Despite being based on something as random as a banana, peely skin is arguably the most popular fornite skin of all time. Almost every season fans have seen a new snapshot of Peely’s skin.
To name a few, Peely’s snapshots include:
- Smoothie peely
- Detached bone
Agent Jones and Peely have long been partners. The former once made a smoothie out of the latter, but then built a robotic suit to make up for it.
It is believed that Peely is not a singular character, but rather a tribe.
Agent Jonesy used to work for the Imagined Order, the organization that controls Fortnite Island. Players first saw him in Chapter 2, Season 2 when he teleported to a top secret IO facility.
John Jones has always been the protagonist of Fortnite history, from hunting the island in Chapter 2, Season 5 to working with the Foundation in Chapter 2, Season 6.
Several versions of John Jones like Scuba Jonesy and Bunker Jonesy have arrived in Fortnite.
3) Dr. Slone
Dr. Slone was first mentioned during the Chapter 2 Season 6 theatrical trailer, but she has already become one of the main characters in Fortnite history.
Dr. Slone is the head of the Imagined Order and is brilliant at hacking. This was taken for granted at the latest Operation: Sky Fire event, where she hacked into the mothership UFO with ease.
It can be assumed that Doctor Slone will play an important role in the coming Fortnite seasons, and Epic Games will gradually reveal their true identity and power.
4) The visitor
The visitor has been part of Fortnite history since chapter 1 when they tried to escape the island by ramming into Zero Point.
The visitor is part of the Seven, a group that includes his alternate identities from different universes. As of now, the Foundation, the Paradigm and The Scientist have been revealed as additional members of this group.
The Foundation has returned in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8 and players around the world are now eagerly awaiting the reunion of The Seven.
Midas is a genius to say the least. He single-handedly discovered the truth behind the Fortnite loop and led teams like GHOST, EGO and ALTER
Several Midas snaps like Oro and Shadow Midas have hit Fortnite so far and players have loved them all equally.
Epic Games keeps releasing new Midas cosmetics because the character is just too interesting to be forgotten.
