		Beep beep! Respawn vans are pulling up in Fortnite			
			Jay Castello			Contributor		6th April

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. The Reboot Van is coming in the v8.30 patch, allowing players to revive their teammates using special cards. Once used, the van will be on cooldown and can not be used again for an undetermined amount of time. Following months of rumors surrounding respawn-enabling vehicles, Epic Games has finally detailed the new Reboot Vans in its latest Dev Update, hosted by the banana-suited community manager Nathan Mooney.

With the collected badges you run then to a van, where you can activate the reboot card.

Respawning really does change the whole battle royale experience.

The description of the item reads, "Revive eliminated squadmates at a Reboot Van".

The anticipated Reboot Van will officially go live for players next week, developers revealed. As we said again, thanks to Apex Legends and the always growing BR competition, we may see even better features coming to Fortnite.

It's hard to ignore the similarities to Apex Legends' respawn beacons - one of the new battle royale's differential features that separates it from other games in the genre.

This is clear news that the phenomenal early launch success of Apex Legends-which has become a worthy adversary to Fortnite-has definitely caught the eye of Epic. Reboot Vans work pretty much the same way as Apex Legends' Respawn Beacons do.

In February, Epic Games held a Reddit AMA.

"How many times do we play Apex and the game is over with?" Epic has confirmed that this feature will be part of the upcoming update.
