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.
How to Activate a Rift by Purchasing It From a Character
Each of the six NPCs that sell rifts does so for 245 Gold Bars each.
The five static NPCs, and their locations, are as follows:
- Cabbie - Found outside in the southside of Lazy Lake
- Castaway Jonesy - Found on the island located northeast of Steamy Stacks
- Raz - Found in the main building of Colossal Crops
- Rebirth Raven - Found in the small house to the northwest of Sweaty Sands
- Willow - Found wandering in Whispering Woods
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.
