Fortnite's latest update will add respawning to the mix

Cheaters and hackers complain about having their accounts banned

"Rebooted" players appear appear on top of the van, if multiple players have been revived, they will do so one by one. Once this is loaded into the Reboot Van, a big beacon will alert other players to what's going on, so there's still a risk with this. Once used, the van goes into hibernation for a period of time before it can be used again.

Fortnite has announced the Reboot van in Battle Royale Dev Update #13. Before Respawn's game became a massive hit, Fortnite and PUBG were ruling the roost but after Apex Legends began luring players in its run to hit 50 million players in its launch month, the new game posed a serious challenge to these two. Any ally can then use the Reboot Van to bring back their fallen teammate.

Respawning really does change the whole battle royale experience. Their squadmates can bring the card to a reboot van to bring them back to life.

Hints about the Reboot Van were first spotted by dataminers back in March. "Fortnite also brought a squad communication system to the game which, as per some players, is similar to Apex Legends" ping system. But if the player is completely eliminated, then the team member has to watch and has no chance to actively participate in the game. In typical fashion, Epic has added a number of balancing features to the addition.

Players will be able to find Reboot Vans spread out around main points of interest in Fortnite's island. "Look for further updates during Season 8", they said.

We should know more next week once this feature is actually available in the game.

Part of this is due to Apex being a fantastic game in its own right.

While it's plausible that Epic Games has been working on this for some time, the timing is questionable.
