NO.1 How does the Reboot Van work in Fortnite?
As of Fortnite patch v8.30, you would be able to respawn your teammates. Respawning is a feature that only exists in the Fortnite Battle Royale team-based modes. This means you need teammates to respawn someone. Your teammates will drop the reboot card when they are eliminated.
Once they die, the Reboot Cards will fall with your teammate's regular loot. It will stay on the ground for 90 seconds. Once you catch it, you or another squadmate will need to bring it to Reboot Van.
As soon as you reach the van, interact with it to place in the cards of any fallen teammates. When your squadmates respawn, they will know something about the loot. The respawned player comes back with a common pistol, 100 health, 36 light ammo, and 100 wood.
NO.2 Where to Find the Reboot Van in Fortnite?
It is simple to find Reboot Vans because when enemies are using them, they will emit a loud sound. The vans are plentiful, and chances are the next storm circle will include at least one of them. Therefore, don't worry too much about finding one of these new additions.
There are currently 19 Reboot Vans on the Fortnite map, and almost all of them are inside the located within or quite close to the named locations. Here's a map that you can see all the Reboot Van locations in Fortnite.
NO.3 Pros and Cons of the Fortnite Reboot Van
On Reddit and Twitter, some players have released clips that use vans, but they are not that widespread yet, so it's hard to say how popular these vans are. Players can be shot down in the game and resumed before the meter expires. Often, helpful teammates will rejuvenate you.
In a stream I saw today, a player begged his teammate to let him die so he could test out the van. Provided that you only have 30 health when you are revived as opposed to 100 health in case you reboot, dying and rebooting could be a far better alternative health-wise if the scenario is secure adequate.
A player released a clip of their respawn from a van after their teammates were killed, and then took the enemy with a low-powered gray pistol. In the comments, the reader discusses that the player seems to have 5 seconds of invincibility after respawning. Though there is no indication of this in the patch notes, players would like to know if this is a way to combat camping vans for others.
If true, this is an exciting option, especially considering that you can shoot and hurt other players without being damaged. Some people don't like this feature, writing an article on Reddit, which will make you "basically a god of 5 seconds."
NO.4 What are the others updates in Fortnite v8.30 patch?
Another important update is to adjust the stretch aspect ratio on widescreen devices. This means that each Fortnite game and stream will have a uniform aspect ratio, which makes it more suitable for users who like to watch live/recorded game streams. However, people with widescreen devices are quite annoyed because the new resolution restriction doesn't allow the game to take advantage of smartphone screens with up to 19.5:9 aspect ratio.
There's also add a new event called Buccaneer's Bounty in Fortnite's 8.30 patch, which is a daily series of limited-time modes and in-game challenges. Storm damage has also been changed, with "the initial instance of damage [starting] 1 second immediately after getting into the Storm."
