Fortnite has added this Apex Legends-inspired feature

Should one of your teammates fall to a twelve-year-old's sniper rifle, you are able to pick up their Reboot card and make your way to one of the blue vans dotted across the map.

Players will now drop a reboot card when they're eliminated in battle royale. The Reboot Van is coming in the v8.30 patch, allowing players to revive their teammates using special cards.

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so Apex Legends should take heart in the fact that Fortnite is copying its respawn mechanic wholesale. Once the respawn has been completed, the dev update video then explained how the Fortnite Reboot vehicle will be unavailable to use by players for a short amount of time afterward. Additionally, any rebooted squadmates will be unarmed so if you've revived them you'll need to drop some of your weapons to get them back in the action.

The anticipated Reboot Van will officially go live for players next week, developers revealed.

Ethiopian Airlines crash liabilities $1 billion
Once activated, the MCAS forced the plane into a dive and ultimately a crash that killed everyone on board, the newspaper said. Federal prosecutors have asked Boeing to clarify their disclosures on the 737 Max's stall-prevention system.

When will the reboot van arrive?

This is what can be considered one of the most unique features that Apex Legends had, and Fortnite will be implementing this with the "reboot" vans. Another addition they brought to battle royale was the Respawn Beacon.

The Reboot Van will be added to Fortnite next week and Epic is asking for fan feedback on the new feature. It's unclear if the reboot vans will be included in the upcoming "Fortnite World Cup."

The only bug fix that has been confirmed for update 8.30 involves editing structures.

Recently there has been much discussion about how Fortnite can slow down the game to have more players in the endgame. But in the next big update to the game, you will no longer have to sit out the rest of the match, twiddling your thumbs.
