Heroes are the main playable characters in Save the World. There are currently four main classes of Heroes, which each having their own unique Perk. While every Hero in Fortnite can build, explore, and hold their own on the battlefield, each sub class has access to a unique set of Abilities and Traits that gives them a unique style of play.
Each hero loadout consists of a Commander Hero, 5 Support Heroes, a Team Perk and 2 Gadgets. The Commander hero is the one you see in game. Each support hero in your loadout buffs your Commander's HP and Shield by 8%, up to 40%. Certain Team Perks, such as Blast from the Past, require event heroes instead.
Soldiers provide the bulk of a team's firepower by buffing allies, debuffing enemies, and shredding.
Ninjas excel in melee combat and mobility, with Mantis Leap, Dragon Slash, and Smokescreen allowing them to dart in and out of harm's way. tips: if you use mantis leap before hitting the floor you save yourself from fall damage.
Outlanders specialize in treasure finding and resource collecting, with perks and abilities that help them find valuable loot, but also few combat abilities to help them pack a punch in tight situations.
