After the player launches from the damaged Migrator's cannon and lands in the water, Aunt Arctic calls to them, instructing them to swim to the shore. Aunt Arctic introduces herself and questions what happened to Rockhopper, only for her question to be answered shortly afterwards as the Migrator pulls in to dock, visibly leaking water and beginning to sink. She requests the player's assistance in aiding Rockhopper, then asks for their name, prompting them to choose a username, and select a color to wear. Afterwards, Aunt Arctic instructs the player to search the Beacon Boardwalk for 3 piles of wood planks. Once the third pile is collected, Aunt Arctic tells the player to return to the Migrator.
Lost starter kit
After his ship is repaired, Rockhopper informs the player that their starter kit was lost during the crash, but it has likely washed up on the shores of Coconut Cove. Once the kit is retrieved from a platform surrounded by water accessible by zipline, Rockhopper instructs the player to return to the Beacon Boardwalk and find Aunt Arctic, who has the key to open the kit. She apologies for a problematic welcome and presents the player with their starter kit, which contains 4 blueprints, 9 fabrics, 9 decals, 250 coins, and 25 XP (Aunt Arctic), officially welcoming them to the island.
