Ariana Grande is back in Fortnite but, thanks to the v18.21 update that released overnight, she’s now a NPC. Instead of the pop star that fans saw during her concert earlier this year, Ariana takes on a new form as a monster hunter. The Cube Queen has made her way to the island and now resides over The Sideways, which the new NPC will look to disrupt. Before that happens, though, players can talk to Ariana Grande to start her Punchcard quests in Season 8.
Like every other NPC this season, Ariana has her own Punchcard quests that players can complete for Battle Pass XP.
Completing Ariana Grande’s Punchcard quests in Fortnite
To start, players can visit the NPC in her location, which is in and around Believer Beach. Once players talk to her, they’ll get started on her questline. From here, players have five challenges to complete for 30,000 XP each. After they complete all five, they will have completed Ariana Grande’s questline.
The full list of Punchcard quests is viewable below:
- Collect a record and place it in a Turntable (0/2)
- Study the Caretaker’s footprints (0/2)
- Collect Symbols from eliminated Cube Monsters (0/5)
- Reveal the Command Symbol (0/1)
- Launch Signal Flares (0/3)
The tasks above are all fairly difficult challenges for players to complete. Each requires different knowledge of Fortnite Season 8 and cannot be completed simply by playing as usual. The only possible exception is collecting Symbols from eliminated Cube Monsters, which is done through entering The Sideways and killing the monsters. However, for players who are worried about completing these challenges, Upcomer will release challenge guides throughout the week to ensure that they can earn that ever-important Battle Pass XP in Season 8.
