How to Activate a Rift by Purchasing It From a Character in Fortnite

Chapter 2, Season 6, Week 9's Epic Quests go live today, and players are going to have to purchase a rift from one of the several NPCs that offer the service for one of them.

Purchasing a rift costs Gold Bars and teleports a player up into the air above Apollo Island for a mini redeploy

There are six different NPCs that sell rifts, but only five of them can be found in the same location every match.

The sixth NPC that sells rifts is Bunker Jonesy, who can appear in one of ten different locations on Apollo Island:

  • A house east of Catty Corner past the mountain
  • A house on the southern coast of the island below Misty Meadows
  • A house southeast of Catty Corner
  • A shack on the hill east of Misty Meadows
  • At Camp Cod Island at the south edge of the map
  • On the Rainbow Rentals beach southwest of Holly Hedges
  • On the lighthouse island northwest of Stealthy Stronghold
  • On the house on a hill northwest of Steamy Stacks
  • A shack southwest of Slurpy Swamp
  • A house northwest of Holly Hedges

Seeing as Bunker Jonesy's location is unreliable, it is recommended that players seek out on of the other five NPCs to complete this challenge.
