At last, a second chance… bring your teammates back to life with Fortnite’s brand new Reboot Vans!
Resurrect your fallen friends at one of the many Reboot Vans scattered across the map. So how do you pull off this feat of medical ingenuity? It’s simple. As soon as your teammates fall, they’ll drop a Reboot Card. Head over to a Reboot Van to restore them to life with a simple interaction – but try to have someone watch your back, because it takes 10 seconds to do. The vans also take 2 minutes to cool down after use, so use them wisely.
After reviving, you’ll find you’ve lost your accumulated gear, but you won’t be left totally empty-handed. You’ll have 100 health, a common pistol with 36 light ammo to go with it, and 100 wood so you can whip something up to defend yourself as you hightail it out of danger.
That’s not the only new feature, though – hot on the heels of the Floor is Lava mode comes a brand new event called Buccaneer’s Bounty. From April 10 – 15 you’ll be able to try your hand at a different limited time challenge every day to earn in-game rewards. What sort of treasures will you be able to uncover?
Watch the skies for another limited time mode: Fly Explosives, in which all the fun of High Explosives is combined with (wait for it) Jetpacks. And yes, you guessed right – you’ll only get explosive weapons.
And last but certainly not least, make sure to mark April 13 and 14 on your calendar, because that’s when the very first weekly Fortnite World Cup Online Open is happening, and there’s a staggering $1,000,000 prize pool to aim for.
In order to compete in the first Solos round on April 13, you’ll have to have reached the Champion League in Arena mode. The best 3000 players will then progress to round 2 on April 14th, and finally the top performers from each server region will qualify for the Fortnite World Cup Finals, which will be held in New York City and have their own prize pool of $30,000,000. Remember, the weekly competitions alternate between Solos and Duos, so you can play whichever you’re most comfortable with. The very best of luck to you!
