Fortnite Command Signal locations: How to reveal the Command Signal in Fortnite

Where to find the Command Signals.

Revealing the Command Signal is one of the quests in Ariana Grande's questline in Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.

Previously in this questline you've studied the Caretaker's footprints and, now, you need to visit the Command Signal's location to continue helping the popstar out in her quest.

Completing this quest for the first time will reward you with 30k XP, which will help you earn rewards from the Season 8 Battle Pass and, if you repeat it, you'll still earn a small XP reward.


Note this particular challenge is no longer able to be completed. What's new? Chapter 4 Season 2 has arrived! New additions include the Grind Rails and Kinetic Blades, along with the new Battle Pass, character collection and Eren Jaeger skin. It's a good idea to know how to get XP fast in Fortnite.

It's important to remember that these locations are not 100% exact, but, by placing a marker at where the exclamation point sits, you'll end up very close to the correct location.

Don't worry about this quest taking up too much of your time either - you only need to reveal one Command Signal and then you can either focus on the next challenge or winning the match.


Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 1 is here! It brings a free Lego Insider skin and redemption codes with it, along with a new Victory Umbrella. We've also got pages on new features like Medallions, Weapon Mods, and how to complete a Train Heist. Meanwhile, learn what the best weapons are in the current season, how to get XP fast, and what the best PC settings are to help earn a Victory Crown.


How to reveal the Command Signal in Fortnite

Once you've found the Command Signal's location, you'll need to complete a small puzzle to actually reveal the Command Signal in Fortnite. Thankfully, this puzzle is quite easy to solve.

Upon reaching the Command Signal, you'll discover that it's surrounded by three beacons and, as you get close, the images of three figures will appear from said beacons.

Each of these figures will be enacting a specific action which you can do in-game, such as jumping, and, to reveal the Command Signal, you need to complete this action next to the right beacon. In the image above, you can see that we had two beacons which required us to crouch and one which wanted us to jump. Due to the crouching beacons being next to each other, we were able to activate these two at the same time.

Activate the beacons by completing the correct action, such as jumping.

Once you've successfully completed the required actions, the Command Signal will be revealed and the quest finished!
