The second leg of Fortnitemares 2021 has started in Fortnite Season 8 and Epic has brought back a familiar face, but this time in a completely new avatar. For the third week of this year’s Fortnitemares, Ariana Grande has returned to the island, this time as an NPC.

Following the trend, the singer has her own set of challenges that you can perform in exchange for XPs in Fortnite Season 8. Ariana returning to Fortnite Island as an NPC is definitely surprising, but Epic being Epic has pulled it off nicely. Among her several challenges, one asks you to study the Caretaker’s Footprints in Fortnite Season 8. Here is how you can complete the challenge and get on with her other quests.
