In LEGO Fortnite, inviting various villagers to live in your village can help you lighten your workload. However, there is a cap on the number of villagers you can have all over your settlements. These NPCs will help you craft and build as well as face off against different enemy mobs in the game.
Needless to say, having them within your settlements not only safeguards them but also proves effective for gathering resources, significantly enhancing your overall progression. Since there is a limit on how many villagers you can recruit, you will need to invite them to your villages accordingly. So if you are wondering what exactly the cap on the NPC you can invite, then here is everything you need to know.
How Many Villagers Can You Recruit in LEGO Fortnite?
Players will be able to build multiple different villages spread across the various biomes in the brick world. However, you will be able to have only 15 villagers in LEGO Fortnite across all the settlements you have built. You won’t be able to recruit any more than that in the game. This means you will have to divide them accordingly in your villages.
With that being said, players will get to invite up to five NPCs to live in a single village and assign them their dedicated jobs. And while this may seem like a lot fewer NPCs to recruit considering you will build multiple villages as you progress, it is highly manageable in the game. This way you will know which village needs more work and invite the villagers to that specific one.
While there are no specific reasons why Epic Games has kept the restrictions, it most likely seems to be the limitations of the servers. It is to keep servers from getting overwhelmed, potentially causing any outages or issues.
For now, players will have to make do with 15 villagers in LEGO Fortnite. However, there is a chance that the devs might extend the capacity in any future updates making it possible to invite many more NPCs in the game.
