The beginning of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 has a bunch of new additions, one of them being fancy gold bars.
The new season has a new version of NPCs that can task players with various bounty challenges. Players can claim these challenges by finding NPCs on the map and interacting with them.
Some of the bounties include eliminating specific players, earning a certain number of eliminations, or making your way to a determined point on the map.
How to Get Gold Bars in Fortnite Season 5
All of the bounty challenges will reward players with the new gold bars. This is not the only way to earn the bars, however, since you will be able to obtain them through chests in smaller amounts.
You can also grab the gold bars from eliminating enemies who are carrying the bars.
While the gold bars might seem obsolete at first glance, they are pretty useful when trying to grab the new weapons in Fortnite. You will also be able to purchase upgrades, intel, and more.
All of these will be crucial to securing your lead in-game. You will need to find more NPCs to redeem gold bars in exchange for their services. This can make their locations highly-contested, as everyone is going to want in on the goods.
So keep laser-focused when you are around the NPCs, you never know what's going to be around the corner.
