The Character Collection tasks you with finding NPCs across the battle royale map, each corresponding to the theme and events of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
There is a total of 17 characters to find, most of them being present as Battle Pass skins as well.
You'll likely come across some of them in your travels, but others can be rather elusive, or present a particular condition attached. This guide will explain how to complete your Character Collection.

Character Collection in Fortnite explained
Each new season brings an array of characters to meet, either during your expeditions across the battle royale map or through the Battle Pass screen as unlockable screens.
Some tend to be variations or even returning characters from previous seasons, while others are completely new. They all tend to serve a purpose, either in relation to specific storylines, for example, or just general quests that you can pick up as you go.
The Character Collection, then, works as a catalogue for all of them. All you have to do (in most cases) is to talk to the NPC in question to see their face appear on your collection.
The list below includes all current locations in the map grid. These are bound to change over time, so make sure to keep an eye on this page throughout the season!

Character Collection badge reward explained
Completing the Character Collection in Fortnite comes with a reward, but unlike legendary or epic quests, don't expect to gain experience or any other goodies.
Instead, you'll obtain a badge (which is an achievement) in your Legacy catalogue. This can be viewed from the Careers tab in the game's main hub.
At the moment, there are two characters missing in the game. This means that the badge cannot be obtained as of yet.
While in season 7 it was possible to complete the collection even with a missing character, as Bunker Jonesy could glitch itself, you will have to wait for a tad longer to complete it in season 8.
We'll update this page with the missing NPCs once they become available. In the meantime, have fun hunting for this season's characters!
Recent new quests include Touch a Cube, Spirit Vessel Caretaker's footprints, Command Signal, scroll locations, mini-pufts, seismographs, Ghostbusters signs and deploying a ghost trap for the Containment Specialist. Elsewhere in Season 8, you can start using Sideways weapons, partake in Sideways encounters, and find colour bottles for Tonna Fish.
