Heroes are the main playable characters in Save the World. There are currently four main classes of Heroes, which each have a number of sub classes. 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.
Sub Classes[edit | edit source]
DEPRECIATED The current system in STW does not rely on Sub-Classes. Hero designs are based on the story quests and game narrative. They are most commonly implemented with a new and unique Perk, lately they've been included in a launch season in groups of 3-5 like the Dyno heroes recently that also introduce a new Team Perk. New hero loadouts have a selection of existing abilities that reflect the new character, additionally but very rarely they will have a new hero ability but that's once every couple of years.
Soldier[edit | edit source]
Soldiers provide the bulk of a team's firepower by buffing allies, debuffing enemies, and shredding Husks with combat-focused abilities.
Constructor[edit | edit source]
Constructors are building-focused classes, providing supercharged structures and traps to improve a team's defenses and crowd control.
Ninja[edit | edit source]
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.
Outlander[edit | edit source]
Outlanders specialize in treasure finding and resource collecting, with perks and abilities that help them find valuable loot.
