- Head to Fortnite’s Official Reboot a Friend website

- You’ll then be able to select up to three friends to join you to earn points
- Once you’re all synced up, go and play Fortnite to earn points!
How do I earn points towards Reboot a Friend rewards?
So as we’ve already said, if you have linked up to other players using the above method, then your first game with a player that hasn’t played for 30 days will earn 100 points.

Where to launch Signal Flares in Fortnite Season 8 Punchcard Quest
Here’s how to find and launch Signal Flares for Fortnite Season 8’s Ariana Grande Fortnitemares Punchcard Quest to earn some XP and rewards.
Ariana Grande has arrived in Fortnite as an NPC and for her Fortnitemares Punchcard Quests, you’ll need to launch Signal Flares. Here’s how you can get this done quickly.
For one of her Quests, you’ll need to launch a few Signal Flares to contact other hunters. These can be found in different areas across the map, and you’ll need to visit them to complete the Quest.
This guide will go over all the locations that you can visit to get this done.
Fortnite Signal Flare locations
You can find Signal Flares in a total of 4 locations on Fortnite Island. They resemble large brightly colored fireworks with dynamite on the side, so they’re fairly hard to miss if you’re in their vicinity.
Here are all the Signal Flare locations in Fortnite:
- Shattered Saucer
- East of Primal Pond
- South west of Dirty Docks
- West of FN Radio
For this quest, you only need to visit three of these locations, so head over there and interact with the Signal Flares to launch them. This will help you get in contact with the hunters.
Once you’ve launched 3 Signal Flares, you’ll be rewarded with 30,000 XP and this Quest will be marked as complete. You can also complete other Ariana Grande Punchcard Quests for some more XP.
However, you need to watch out for other players who might also be in the area to complete the Punchcard Quests before you do. Make sure you’ve got some solid weapons and gear to defend yourself.

How to get Spacefarer Ariana Grande Fortnite skin: Price & bundle contents
A new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin has arrived, so here’s how to get your hands on the new bundle and all of its cosmetics.
Fortnite has welcomed a brand new Ariana Grande Spacefarer skin and bundle into the game. Here’s everything you need to know about the new bundle, including how to get it, the price, and the contents.
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 arrived.
Here’s everything we know about the new celebrity bundle.
How to buy the Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle
Fortnite’s Spacefarer Ariana Grande bundle arrived in the Item Shop on October 21, bringing the new skin and its associated cosmetics.
The Fortnite Spacefarer Ariana Grande bundle also marks the return of the classic Ariana Grande skin, which originally arrived as part of the Rift Tour event.
Ariana Grande Spacefarer bundle contents & price
Ariana Grande’s Spacefarer bundle sells for 2,500 V-Bucks, which is slightly cheaper than the 2,800 V-Bucks for the original Ariana Grande bundle.
The Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin comes with a transformation emote, changing the skin into the alien-themed Starfire Ariana Grande. Players can readily switch between the two styles by using the Just Keep Breathin’ Emote.
Of course, you can buy each item from the Spacefarer bundle, such as the Pickaxe and Backbling, separately.
Here’s each item from the bundle and their individual prices:
- Spacefarer Ariana Grande skin, I.R.I.S Backbling, and Just Keep Breathin’ Emote – 2,000 V-Bucks
- Spacefarer Lightscythe Pickaxe – 800 V-Bucks
- I.R.I.S Daydream Glider – 1,200 V-Bucks
- Spooky Smallz Backbling – 400 V-Bucks
Buying the bundle as a whole will save you 1,500 V-Bucks, so will be worth it if you’re a big Ariana Grande fan.
Also, check out all of the NPC locations for Fortnite Season 8, which now includes Ariana Grande.

When will Naruto come to Fortnite? New skin release date
A Naruto skin is seemingly on its way to Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about when it will arrive in the game.
There’s wide speculation about the arrival of popular anime character Naruto as a new skin in Fortnite, and here’s everything we know about this, including the skin’s possible release date.
More crossover skins were uncovered by data miners from a survey by Epic Games. While one of these was part of a hoax, there are still many other interesting ones that might be coming soon, including a Naruto skin.
Fortnite Naruto skin release date
Now, we seem to be one step closer to confirming the arrival of Naruto after Twitch streamer candywingx appeared to confirm the arrival of the skin.
The player recently retweeted a real-life meeting with Chief Creative Officer at Epic Games Donald Mustard, and it was hinted that they had been discussing the future of Fortnite.
If the anime protagonist arrives as part of the next Battle Pass in Fortnite Season 8, then we’ll likely see him added to the game on September 18, 2021. If the skin isn’t ready by then, it may appear in the Item Store at a later date.
We might also see the arrival of other characters from the Naruto universe, like Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi.
If Naruto arrives in Fortnite, the player base may significantly increase, since the anime has a huge fandom that’s spread out across the globe. It may even open the door to other anime crossovers like Dragon Ball.
Season 6 of the influential battle royale game also featured a few generic anime skins, but this would be a huge step up. Hopefully, Epic Games will give us some confirmation on the Naruto skin’s arrival.
