Epic Games’ popular battleroyale game Fortnite has rolled out a new update that holds the version number 8.30 and it will be released on April 10 after 5am ET (2:30pm IST). The new update was a much awaited one because it brings a new feature from the game’s rival Apex Legends – Reboot Bus. The Reboot Bus/Respawn Vans allows the players to revive their ‘dead’ squad mates. Earlier this feature was not available in Fortnite and it made its debut in the Apex Legends.
The Reboot Van is the new feature being introduced in the new update of Fortnite. According to a video from Epic Games, with the addition of Reboot Vans, the players of the game will be able to revive or bring their dead teammates back to life just like Apex Legends’ respawn beacon. For this, the players would need to pick the Reboot Cards which will be on the bodies of the dead/downed teammates or at the place where they died. The players can then pick those cards and activate them at the Respawn Vans which would bring the dead teammate back to life.
Once the Respawn Vans are activated, there will be a visual and audio cue which will let the players nearby know that someone is trying to revive his teammate. It will also make visible the number of players who are being revived.
But it should be noted that the Reboot Vans can bring only one player of a team at one time. It is worth mentioning that the Respawn Vans have cooldown time once they are activated. So, if the players have the Reboot Cards of more than one teammate, then he would need to take turns reviving them. But it will also take time and will make the player who is reviving his teammates vulnerable. So, they need to watch their back, and it will probably better to get all the teammates gather around the Respawn Van and protect each other.
