Finding the thief in Fortnite is one of the challenges brought forth by update v16.10. Fortunately, he isn't very difficult to spot once players know where to look.
As always, a new update has resulted in new tasks and challenges for players to complete and earn themselves a bit of extra XP. In Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6, its "Primal" theme is definitely pushing players to put their tracking skills to the test. After all, finding a moving target could be the difference between life and death in the wild.
Fortunately, for those who might have skipped this part of the Scouts, we've uncovered his location.
How to Find the Thief in Fortnite
The thief can be found at Colossal Crop, the large farm that has replaced Colossal Coliseum this season. On the map, when standing in the very center, nearest the Spire, Colossal Crop will be the first major location to the northeast—or traveling toward the top right.
The thief, himself, wanders the area in a pre-programmed circuit like any other NPC. Some have reported finding him nearest the farmhouse. However, he could be walking about anywhere within the area. The best way to locate him would be to keep an eye out for the floating textbox icon that typically indicates exactly where such an NPC is located nearby.
Best of luck, loopers.
