'Fortnite': Get Intel From a Character Locations for Week 15 Challenges

Fortnite's Week 15 Challenges have just gone live, and, while many of the objectives are self-explanatory, there's one that may be giving some Battle Royale fans pause. Want to know how to get Intel from a character so you can receive 40,000 XP for your Season 5 Battle Pass? Then you've come to the right place.

How to get Intel from a Character in Fortnite

Just like the vast majority of the objectives you'll be asked to complete during Week 15, this one requires interacting with the various NPCs scattered around the Battle Royale map. In Fortnite Season 5, getting Intel refers to purchasing any sort of map from a character for a small amount of Bars. It typically costs less than a dozen Bars to buy one of these maps, and you only need to buy one of them to complete the challenge.

With that in mind, we're aware of at least six characters who sell maps at their specific locations. In this guide, we'll show you all of their possible spawn spots. If you have trouble using one of our maps, just look for the speech bubble that appears onscreen when you land. That should point you in the precise direction of the character you're looking for. If it's not there, try one of the alternate spawn locations instead.

Lexa: Lexa's Intel is a Treasure Chest Map. Head to this house in the northwest corner of Hunter's Haven, and you'll find her standing in the kitchen area. Try to enter through the rear door to avoid confrontation with any IO Guards that may be nearby.
