What are Survivors in Fortnite Save the World?

The Director oversees the Survivor section in the Fortnite Save the World interface.

Survivors are the most integral leveling systems in Fortnite Save the World and also one of the hardest to understand. Briefly Survivors contribute to your F.O.R.T. stats and your F.O.R.T. stats directly increase your Power, formerly Power Level. Due to the complexity of these systems, they can be daunting for new and old players alike. Have no fear though, we're here to fix that!

A better understanding of this system will usually lead to higher Power gains. The higher your Power, the easier time you will have surviving and the higher level content you will be able to do. You could be lower level than you should be and not even know it. These guides will work to ensure that doesn't happen.

The Survivor Basics will explore common topics to know about Survivors. Who they are, what to do with them and how they differ from each other. Autofill will look at how the Autofill system works. When to use it and when not to use it. When you're ready to turn Autofill Off, head over to the Beginner Squads and Advanced Squads sections to see how to customize your setup for the most optimal gains.
