GHOST (formerly known as E.G.O.) is a spy and military organization in Fortnite: Battle Royale, first appearing in Chapter 2: Season 1. E.G.O. used to have multiple bases scattered across the map, each with a different purpose. It then evolved into an Espionage agency which collapsed at the end of it's season and continue to battle against SHADOW. They have possibly contributed in The Resistance since the flag on The Daily Bugle is not replaced.

Overview

Cuddle Cruisers (The Device) - Landmark - Fortnite.png

GHOST is the counterpart to SHADOW, sporting a lighter coloring scheme rather than SHADOW's dark theme. The first group of E.G.O. members entered The Loop through a Plane that was sent by the Imagined Order. Their mission was to search the reconstructed map and set up base. They investigated the Loopers while the IO worked secretly to reconstruct the Bridge.

Midas is the only known E.G.O leader, the identity of the founder (if not Midas) is also unknown. Since Chapter 2: Season 4, they haven't been active like SHADOW. They lost the Spy Wars, as SHADOW took over their bases and most of the neutral agents joined SHADOW with Skye and Deadpool being the only ones that joined GHOST during Chapter 2: Season 2. In Season 3, GHOST rebelled against SHADOW’s reign, with no clear winner at the end of the season.

History

Chapter 2: Season 1

The Lowdown (Full) - Loading Screen - Fortnite.png
  • An E.G.O. Plane crashes and brings a group of agents sent to investigate Apollo. They make various bases and research centers, and discover another group called A.L.T.E.R. led by Chaos Agent. The formerly mentioned group goes to fight with Scratch, 8-Ball's Alter Ego. Later Midas arrives at the Eye Land, several E.G.O files as well as items turned into gold can be found.

Chapter 2: Season 2

The Device - Promo - Fortnite.jpg
  • Midas built the Agency as the main headquarters of GHOST at the Eye Land. Later, he recruits a group of neutral agents, who later mostly turn to SHADOW, except Skye and Deadpool who turn to GHOST. Midas then starts building a Device under The Agency. Before activating The Device Midas turns to SHADOW and accidentally creates a flood which destroys The Shark, one of GHOST's last locations.

Chapter 2: Season 3

The Fortilla (Trailer) - Location - Fortnite.jpeg
  • After the flood, GHOST Henchmen and some members move to The Fortilla, the new headquarters of GHOST. Deadpool resides as The Yacht, with a GHOST boat called Pirate Radio travelling around the island.

Chapter 2: Season 4

  • After a battle, with no specific winner (presumably GHOST), The Fortilla is dismantled and The Yacht sinks. GHOST dissolves, but is affiliated with SHIELD shown in a Battle Pass tab.

Chapter 3: Season 1

  • After Apollo flipped over, almost no trace of GHOST is left.

Chapter 3: Season 2

  • Many SHADOW operatives and henchmen submerge into the ranks of Imagined Order. GHOST operatives aid The Seven's Resistance against the Imagined Order.
  • After The Seven reclaims The Daily Bugle from the Imagined Order, a flag of GHOST was placed in that location.
  • A flag of GHOST was also placed at Condo Canyon.

Recruitment Posters

"JOIN GHOST" Posters were able to be found in in the numerous locations around the map starting Chapter 2: Season 2, with all of them being removed at the start of Chapter 2: Season 4.

Removed locations

  • Two in Craggy Cliffs
  • Two in Dirty Docks
  • Retail Row had one inside the Taco store
  • Slurpy Swamp had two
  • There were two in Salty Springs
  • Three in Weeping Woods
  • Some at Hydro 16
  • One was at Pirate Radio, which was also the also the last location a
  • JOIN GHOSTposter was able to be found, after all the others were removed. Both Pirate Radio appeared and the other posters disappeared at the start of Chapter 2: Season 3, and was ultimately removed at the start of Chapter 2: Season 4.

Trivia

  • There appears to be a connection between GHOST and the Imagined Order, as there are props with GHOST logo and a painting of The Agency in The Bridge and other bases. The E.G.O Crashed Plane was also sent out by The Imagined Order, as confirmed by Bunker Jonesy
  • This is further reinforced by Bunker Jonesy which associates E.G.O & IO during the Week 9 Quests & Reboot Quests in Chapter 2: Season 5.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 1, a transmission was sent by I.O. that can be read before the trailer launches, the transmission mentions that their "best [REDACTED: D4] team" was sent to the island, which most likely means E.G.O.
  • Cloud Striker, a known GHOST member, can be seen entering John Jones' office in the Impostors LTM trailer. This further supports this theory.
  • Multiple mugs with the GHOST logo are seen in The Bridge, as well as a few inside of I.O. facilities across The Island.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 1, **REDACTED** was sending out Compact Car from the inside. This bunker was also a part of Lara Croft's challenge to find GHOST and SHADOW locations.
  • Many of the IO facilities on the map as of Chapter 2: Season 8 are almost, if not, exactly where old E.G.O. base camps were set up in Chapter 2: Season 1.
  • If the connection is correct, then E.G.O. is most likely the I.O.'s best
  • militaryteam.
  • There is very little trace of GHOST on the Chapter 3: Season 1 island, although some fans speculate that GHOST are behind Cuddle Cruisers.
    • The only remaining Locations left on the Chapter 2 Island (before it flipped) that related to E.G.O. were Crash Site and Sharky Shell (a destroyed The Shark). This does not include either the Big Shots coffee building west of Catty Corner that had mugs with the GHOST logo on them, nor Defiant Dish, which interestingly also had a mug with the GHOST logo on it.
  • Midsummer Midas wears a chain and bears a tattoo of the GHOST logo, indicating that Midas leads the faction. GHOST also happens
  • to be a newer faction, which also indicates how long ago he received his tattoos.
    • The GHOST Skimboard may be a small nod to how GHOST may still be in operation in secret, seeing as how new equipment was/is produced.
    EGO Plane (Save the World) - Location - Fortnite.png
    • The Plane from Crash Site can sometimes be seen in Scurvy Shoals from Fortnite: Save the World.
    • A connection between GHOST and The Seven is present, since GHOST appears to be assisting The Seven against the Imagined order.
