Reboot vans are the latest addition to Fortnite allowing you to revive your fallen teammates at various locations around the map – use this map to find them easily.

After numerous leaks, Fortnite have finally added respawn functionality to the default playlists in the v8.30 patch – allowing players to bring their teammates back into battle after elimination by collecting their reboot card.

How to use reboot vans in Fortnite

Taking inspiration from rival game, Apex Legends, reboot cards will remain in the game for 90 seconds after death and need to be delivered to a reboot van on the map.

After approaching the van, your teammate’s reboot card can be activated and they will re-enter the game with a limited loadout; a grey pistol, 100 health and 100 wood meaning they are still capable of putting up a fight.

It might be worth dropping them some of your own loot to improve your chances of survival.

Where to find reboot vans in Fortnite

This map shows the location of every reboot van on the vast Fortnite map should you need to bring your squad back to life.

It’s worth noting that a reboot van enters a cooldown period of 120 seconds after use so you may need to divert your route if an enemy beat you to it – don’t worry because there are plenty to choose from.

As shown on the map, vans were found at every point of interest on the map meaning almost all players should have the chance to bring their teammates back onto the battlefield.

Particularly in the north-west section of the map, there are plenty of locations to choose from with vans outside Junk Junction, Haunted Hills and the Block.

It remains to be seen whether the addition will prove to be popular among the Fortnite community who are still unhappy after Epic Games decided to not revert the controversial removal of the siphon mechanic.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
