'Fortnite' Is Getting Reboot Vans, Which Are Basically 'Apex Legends' Revive Stations

Apex Legends has started dropping the ban hammer on cheaters and hackers everywhere

After thieving Apex Legends' ping system, Fortnite is now stealing the respawn system by adding in the Reboot Van.

Both the Reboot Van and Reboot Cards will be introduced in the update.

The similarities might even go deeper: The developer video advises players to "toss some items to your rebooted teammates to get them back into the battle", which suggests players drop all of their items on death.

Fans have been requesting something like this for months - the ability of players to respawn is one of the most popular features in "Apex Legends", the newest upstart rival to "Fortnite". This will mean that even though you've brought your squadmate back to life, other players will be coming to get you. As given away by the name, the van will allow players to reboot/respawn eliminated teammates. On top of that, Reboot Vans will be rendered unavailable for some time after it's been used.

Epic Games has announced that it's adding Reboot Vans to Fortnite. Apex Legends' guns come from the Titanfall universe, and therefore tend to mix in sci-fi types like energy weapons, while Fortnite's are usually a little more traditional-but also throw in a few weird ones now and again, like the Boogie Bomb, which causes enemies afflicted by it to start dancing uncontrollably.

There's a particularly entertaining Reddit exchange involving a deleted post, a reply from a Respawn dev, and a lengthy account of a streamer's repeated bans and attempts to brag about effectively cheating.
