Survivor Squads Introduction
If you have questions about survivor squads or how to level in Fortnite Save The World, this guide will be perfect for you. It is a comprehensive guide that will touch on all aspects that are correlated with increasing your homebase power level and efficiently managing your time and survivors. This isn’t just a how to assign survivors guide, it is much more than that, ranging from efficient material farming to end-game survivor min-maxing. I will be more than happy to get your feedback. If you find any errors or I could extend a section feel free to reply below. Without further ado let’s get straight to the topic. We will start off with the basics since the guide will be applicable for anyone.
Currently in the game we have access to 8 squads. Each squad consists of one Lead Survivor plus seven survivors and is specifically bound with a specific F.O.R.T stat. We can distinguish 2 Fortitude, 2 Offense, 2 Resistance and 2 Tech Squads, which translates respectively to 8 Lead Survivors and 56 Survivor slots in total. As you first start the game you will have access to ( the Lead Survivor slot and 3 survivor slots ) in the EMT Squad which grants Fortitude. You will unlock more slots and squads during the main storyline and during Storm Shield 1-6 Defences.
Each squad comes with a matching job requirement.

The Think Tank
Lead Survivors & Survivor Rarity
Rarity is crucial when it comes to survivors, the higher it is the more stat points you are able to get. Presented values are not affected by squad matching and are aimed towards familiarizing you with the rarity concept. Further explanations about how to exceed the maximum power during the squad assignments will be found in the 2.4.2 section that will explain the breakdown of matching.
The same rarity principle applies to Lead Survivors with the exception there are no Common rarity lead survivors. The base values stay the same, but the maximum power is a bit different.
