Fortnite is getting a respawn function

Much like the respawn system that plays a vital part in Apex Legends, Fortnite's Reboot Van will require players to collect a small item that downed squad members drop upon their death.

If this all sounds familiar, that's because it's similar to the revive system in Apex Legends, where instead of Reboot Cards, they use banners.

Battle Royale players will soon be able to revive allies that were eliminated in the match by using Reboot Vans. After each reboot the van has a short cooldown, and teammates will spawn with very little gear.

Fortnite is getting Reboot Vans which work exactly like Apex Legends' respawns
Respawning is finally coming to Fortnite

Friday, April 5th saw Epic Games release a Battle Royale developer (dev) update video on the official Fortnite YouTube channel where details of the previously leaked Respawn Van were officially announced. As given away by the name, the van will allow players to reboot/respawn eliminated teammates.

To bring your friends or team mates back to life, you would require a device called the Reboot card. The player will drop down with nothing but a pickaxe and the Reboot Van used will need to recharge. The Reboot Van in Fortnite will have its own predispositions and will work the same for everyone.

Epic Games finally announced what those vehicles are: The Reboot Van. What's more, the van makes a noise and projects a beacon into the sky that lets nearby enemies know a reboot is in progress. Fortnite was quick to respond to Apex's popularity, and to copy some of the ideas it brought to the table. It's unclear if the reboot vans will be included in the upcoming "Fortnite World Cup." Especially a game so popular that it is really the only threat Fortnite has right now. As early as February 2019, many players had asked Epic if they were planning something like that - and Epic said they were thinking about it.
