Fortnite is going to introduce Apex Legends-style Respawn System Next Week
Reboot Van will Respawn You
Recently, Epic Games has confirmed the addition of a new feature to Fortnite: Battle Royale. This feature is known as “The Robot Van” enabling you to bring back teammates that have eliminated from the fight. Exactly similar to the “Respawn Stations” found in Apex Legends.
As the part of next update in Fortnite, Roboot Vans and Reboot Cards will feature in the battle royale mode. Upon death, teammates will drop their card, which can use at a Reboot Van to Respawn them successfully to battle.
Epic Games Community Manager Statement
Nathan Mooney said in a video describing the new feature that after the elimination of the squadmate, you need to gran his dropped Reboot Card and activate it at a Van. Once respawn, you’ll confirmedly know, as a beacon and audio cue will start, displaying nearby players to the reboot in progress and how many players will be reaching. After that, the team will appear, one by one, on top of the Reboot Van, almost ready to partake into the match once again.
Keep extra weapons at your disposal for your Friends
Similar to Apex Legends, your squadmates will reintroduce into the match without their items or weapons. So, you need to ensure that they’re not left completely helpless, it’s your duty to have something on your hands that you can drop for your revived allies. Upon retrieving a player, the Reboot Van will disable and turn back online after a set of time.
