How Fortnite Bounties, NPCs, And Gold Bars Work

Fortnite Season 5 brings with it plenty of Mandalorian content, so it makes sense that some of the new challenges are bounties. He is a bounty hunter, after all. You’ll be able to complete these bounties, tracking down and eliminating targets on the map in exchange for rewards. We’ll explain how to make sense of them so you can reap the benefits.

How To Complete Bounties

There are new NPCs to talk to around the map, and among other things, they offer two types of missions: bounties and quests. Both of these reward you with the new gold bar currency, which can then be traded in to NPCs for various rewards (more on that below.) Bounties involve hunting down a specific player within a time limit, while quests involve other objectives, such as visiting certain locations, using consumables, and so on.

Is Gold The New Bonds?

“Brass shines as fair to the ignorant as gold to the goldsmiths.” – Queen Elizabeth I

Historically, investment advisors and pension funds allocated most of their clients’ money to stocks and bonds. A common allocation was 60% stocks and 40% bonds. But with risk-free bonds (10-year Treasuries) now under 1%, investing in bonds leaves an investor behind inflation in the U.S. In many European nations, government bonds now have a negative yield. Retirees counted on bond income to supplement social security, pensions and other retirement income. They are being forced to pull money out of bond principal as the interest income is insufficient to live on. Insurance companies invest primarily in bonds. They will be increasingly forced to increase their underwriting income to offset lower bond yields, add riskier bonds or buy stocks. Investors of course can get yields higher than 1%, but take credit risk and often prepayment risk
