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 resources 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 deploy special gadgets, such as the TEDDY sentry turret, or the Loot Llama, which can be broken for extra resources. The main downside of this class is their reliance on exploration to be able to utilise 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.

Characters[edit | edit source]
In addition to sub classes, Outlanders have 8 different character models that are usually tied to a particular subclass. It is common, however, for events to release re-skins for subclasses using characters not usually associated with the subclass. For example, the character A.C. is primarily associated with the Striker and Shock Specialist subclasses, however the Fortnitemares 2017 event released a themed version of A.C. with the subclass Pathfinder.
The current Outlander characters are:
Traits[edit | edit source]
Each Hero has a set of Traits that are gradually unlocked as the hero is Upgraded. These include activatable Abilities, passive Hero Perks, and Squad Bonuses that apply when a hero is slotted into the respective slot in the Hero tab.
The following is a list of all traits from the Outlander class. To view a Sub Class' specific trait tree, see its individual page above.
When slotted into one of the Squad Bonus slots in the Hero tab, a hero's Squad Bonuses are applied to the player's primary hero as a passive perk. A Hero has either a Support Bonus, a Tactical Bonus, or both, which are shown in their respective slots on the Hero screen.
