'Fortnite' Is Getting Reboot Vans, Which Are Basically 'Apex Legends' Revive Stations

Fortnite's new Reboot Van

If a teammate dies, you can pick up their Respawn Card and deliver it to a Reboot Van. Using the Reboot Van and Reboot Cards, players will be able to respawn squad members by meeting certain conditions.

The similarities might even go deeper: The developer video advises players to "toss some items to your rebooted teammates to get them back into the battle", which suggests players drop all of their items on death.

When Season 8 of "Fortnite" was released, several users noticed weird vans showing up in replay mode.

In a video, Fortnite introduces the new feature that will revolutionize Epic's Battle Royale. It's likely then that Reboot Vans are Epic's way of creating its own unique respawn mechanic for Fortnite.

The addition of Reboot Vans is going to be included in v8.30. Their squadmates can bring the card to a reboot van to bring them back to life.

With the success of the Titanfall-based battle royale, Fortnite obviously needed to make some changes.

Check out the map with all of the potential locations for Reboot Vans.

The system works just like on Apex Legends. Players who have to resurrect their allies again after using one should try to go to the next van to revive their teammate faster. Once you turn in a card, all opposing players will be alerted via visual and audio cues that a respawn has begun. It's unclear if the reboot vans will be included in the upcoming "Fortnite World Cup." I'm guessing Epic liked the idea from Apex so much that it wanted to crib a feature, which I can't blame them. As early as February 2019, many players had asked Epic if they were planning something like that - and Epic said they were thinking about it.
