The Outlander is one of the four playable Hero Classes available in Fortnite. They specialise in harvesting resources and finding treasures, with passive abilities that grant them movement speed while harvesting or give visual cues to the locations of containers with loot. They also have the unique ability to collect special fragments scattered across maps and use them to power up special gadgets, such as the TEDDY TEDDY sentry turret, or the Loot Llama Loot Llama, which can be broken for extra resources. The main downside of this class is their reliance on exploration to be able to utilize main active abilities. The skills in the Outlander's skill tree focuses on improving Tech and Resistance, increasing Backpack and Storm Shield Storage capacity, and upgrading the pickaxe to allow more efficient harvesting. The skill tree also involves unlocking Evolution for Sniper Rifles and Pistols.

Sub-classes[edit | edit source]

The Outlander Hero Class has 19 standard sub-classes, each with their own unique perks and bonuses.

Characters[edit | edit source]

In addition to sub-classes, Outlanders have 11 different character models that are usually tied to a particular sub-class. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for sub-classes using characters not usually associated with the sub-class. For example, the character A.C. is primarily associated with the Striker and Shock Specialist sub-classes, however the Fortnitemares 2017 event released a themed version of A.C. with the sub-class Pathfinder.

The current Outlander characters are:
