Some new leaks have emerged that hint at the arrival of an inventory feature in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7 that will make it easier for players to manage their items.

There is a wide variety of new content to explore in Fortnite Chapter 2, Season 7, including an alien invasionbrand-new Battle Pass as well as new cosmetic skins like Superman and Rick Sanchez.

When you jump into a match, your first priority will be to collect weapons to defend yourself. Players have been asking for a system that lets you automatically sort your weapon inventory, and it seems that feature is on its way.

This information was leaked by notable Fortnite data miner HYPEX, who explained that an automatic weapon organization system is currently in the works.

“Epic is most likely working on a setting to automatically place items types in the slot that you want,” said the leaker. “For example when you pick up a shotgun it’ll automatically place it in slot #3 or whichever you want. A ‘Preferred Slot Item Type’ feature is being worked on since 17.00!”

This will let you automatically sort items that you collect into specific slots, so you’ll be able to manage your inventory with greater ease.

This new feature would remove the need for individually sorting your gear, which is a particularly difficult process when playing on a console with your controller.

However, it’s worth keeping in mind that these are currently just leaks, so you should take this information with a grain of salt. Hopefully, Epic Games will confirm this feature soon enough.

Fortnite is set to welcome a brand new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin and bundle into the game. Find out when and how you can get your hands on it and how much it is.

Flashy skins, bundles, and cosmetics have become a massive staple of the Fortnite experience, and Ariana Grande has been a recent beneficiary of Epic Games’ attitude towards celebrity skins.

Ariana Grande has had multiple tie-ins to Fortnite with a special Ariana Grande ICON Series skin and also a live event concert. She’s now set for another partnership with Fortnite as a Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle has been leaked.

Here’s everything we know so far.

Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle release date

According to notable Fortnite leaker HYPEX, the Ariana Grande outfit will arrive in the Item Shop on 21 October at 8 PM ET. You’ll also get to access Ariana’s Questline around the same time.

We’ll be sure to update this article with more information on the new Ariana Grande outfit as it becomes available.

How to buy the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle

The new outfit will probably come with a cosmetic bundle that you can also purchase from the Fortnite Item Shop. As with other bundles, you’ll likely get to use it to customize your character before a game.

It’s worth keeping in mind that Epic Games have yet to verify this information, and these are currently just leaks. So, take this information with a grain of salt until the developers announce something official.

How much is the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle?

Using data from the last Ariana Grande bundle, we would estimate that you’ll be able to get the skin on its own for about 1,500 V-Bucks, and the complete bundle for around 2,800 V-Bucks.

Again, we only pretty much know of the skin and bundle’s existence, and there is nothing official regarding it. We will be sure to update this once we know the official price of the items involved.

What’s in the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle?

Epic Games are pretty good at giving its players choice when it comes to buying skins. Based on the datamined pictures, we expect them to offer the Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin separately and provide an entire bundle with a pickaxe, glider, and more.

Judging by the leaked images, these are the items we expect to come with the Ariana Grande Spaefarer bundle:

  • Ariana Grande skin
  • Pickaxe
  • Back bling
  • Glider
  • Emote

That covers just about all we know about the leaked Fortnite Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin and bundle. As we’ve said, this will hopefully become official very soon, and once it is, we’ll update this with all the necessary info.

How to thank the bus driver in Fortnite: PlayStation, Xbox, PC & Switch

Here’s how you can thank the Fortnite bus driver on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Mobile, and the Nintendo Switch.

Published

Fortnite Battle Bus

Fortnite matches always start off on the Battle Bus, and you can show your appreciation by thanking the bus driver. Here’s how you can do that on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Mobile, and the Nintendo Switch.

There are various different activities that you can try out when you hop into a game of Fortnite, such as completing Punchcard Quests, bounties, and even going fishing. However, you always start off on the Battle Bus.

While most players tend to immediately jump out to land at their preferred spots, you can also thank the bus driver first. This was introduced as a fun in-joke back in 2018, and it has remained in the game ever since.

Here’s how you can do this on PC, PlayStation, Xbox, Mobile, and the Nintendo Switch.

How do you thank the bus driver in Fortnite

Fortnite Battle Bus

If you want to show the Fortnite bus driver some appreciation then you’ll find that it’s actually fairly easy to do. You just need to press the button that brings up the Emotes wheel while you’re inside the Battle Bus.

Here is the button on each platform (depending on your configuration):

  • PC – ‘B’ on the keyboard
  • PlayStation – ‘Down’ on the D-pad
  • Xbox – ‘Down’ on the D-pad
  • Nintendo Switch – ‘Down’ on the D-pad
  • Mobile and Tablets – ‘Emote’ in the top right corner of the screen

Of course, if you’ve remapped the controls on your platform then they may appear different than above. If you aren’t sure what your emote button is then you can switch to default controls temporarily.

Once that’s done, the game will give you a little notification on the bottom left of your screen that you’ve thanked the bus driver. Your name will appear in orange along with anyone else who showed the same courtesy.

This is a fun little feature to have in the game, and in some seasons you also get rewards like XP boosts for doing this as part of a challenge. So, be sure to try it out the next time you’re on the Battle Bus.

How to reveal the Command Symbol for Fortnite Ariana Grande Punchcard Quest

Here’s how to find and reveal the Command Symbol for Fortnite Season 8’s Ariana Grande Fortnitemares Punchcard Quest.

Ariana Grande has arrived in Fortnite as an NPC and for her Fortnitemares Punchcard Quests, you’ll need to reveal the Command Symbol. This can be tricky if you don’t know how, so where to find and reveal the Command Symbol.

Fortnite’s Halloween update is here with Fortnitemares. This includes plenty of new features and challenges for players to earn some spooky goodies.

These come in the form of Punchcards, which has brought Ariana Grande back as an NPC.

For one of her Quests, you need to “reveal the Command Symbol.” This is tough if you don’t know how, so here’s where to find and then activate the Command Symbols for the Fortnitemares challenges.

How to reveal the Command Symbol in Fortnite Season 8

To reveal the Fortnite Command Symbol, you must demonstrate the action in front of each corresponding hologram.

You’ll recognize the Fortnite Command Symbol as a blue hologram in between three glowing sticks. The sticks will emit a hologram depicting a different action such as emoting, jumping, or swinging your Pickaxe.

You just need to do the action in front of its corresponding hologram and you’ll have revealed the Command Symbol.

And you only need to activate the Command Symbol once, so don’t worry about having to do it several times.

You can reveal the Command Symbol in several major POIs around the Fortnite map. Thanks to Fortnite.gg here are the locations:

  • Believer Beach
  • Corny Crops
  • Weeping Woods
  • Retail Row
  • Misty Meadows

You’ll begin the Quest in Believer Beach after receiving it from Ariana Grande, so this is the best place to try to complete it.

However, Believer Beach is extremely busy with everyone trying to complete the Fortnitemares Quests so it may be risky. You’ll find that the other locations are much less contested.


And that’s how you reveal the Command Symbol for Fortnite’s Ariana Grande Quests!
