Fortnite's Version 8.30.2 update available

Share

With the release of Fortnite's 8.30 update, Epic Games has introduced a major new mechanic to their highly-successful battle royale; the Fortnite Reboot Van. Apex roared onto the scene with features like a robust "ping" communication system, and Fortnite returned fire by adding a very similar system. It works very similarly to how its biggest competitor -Apex Legends - handles reviving dead teammates. When your squadmates are eliminated, they'll drop a Reboot Card. Assuming you've got that card, you can bring them back into the game at one of these Reboot Vans, but keep in mind that they'll respawn with only a common pistol, 36 light ammo, and 100 wood, so you'll need to be ready to get them outfitted with some items as soon as they're back. First revealed last week in a developer video update (which you can see below), Reboot Vans allow players to respawn fallen teammates in duos and squad games.

Now, as for the rules players must abide by when using a Reboot Van, there's a few to digest, so read carefully.

We reported yesterday that Epic Games has rolled out Patch 8.30 for the game. The goal is to grab it before the 90 seconds is up and deliver it to the van so you can get your crew back into the fight. All that's really changing here are some bug fixes for issues with matchmaking, as well as a respawn issue with the Reboot Van.

Bringing Reboot Cards to Reboot Vans will bring each squad member whose card has been collected back into battle. In the latter game, the beacon summons a new drop ship to bring your teammate back to the battlefield, which is highly visible to everybody around and requires your dead squaddie to jump from the ship back to the ground. The van looks quite unbelievable and we really have to applaud the designers for all the brilliant work that they've delivered. Meanwhile, in Fortnite, the player is reconstituted right on the Reboot Van, and there's seemingly a lot less visual flare to alert other players of what's going on. To make the similarities even more obvious, players respawn without any weapons or loot in both games.

Fortnite's respawns are a bit more forgiving.

Fixed an issue where players were not invulnerable to damage immediately after respawning.
