Fortnite eventually adding Respawn Vans and our latest piece of evidence seems to indicate they are very close to arrival.

Pretty much since Apex Legends launched, fans have been reporting they have seen what can best be described as Respawn Vans popping up in Fortnite.

There has been no official comment from Epic Games as to what these vans are but it certainly seems like Fortnite is on the verge of adding a respawn mechanic of some sort to the game.

It started with players seeing just the vans in various places around the map and then some players reported having a prompt that allowed them to use a ‘Reboot Card‘ which would then result in reviving your teammate, or one would imagine that’s what it does.

Now we have new leaks suggesting the van will potentially require a donation of materials or ammo before it can be used. Keep in mind these are just leaks for the time being so take them with a grain of salt.

This new leak is courtesy of Lucas7yoshi who has a good track record with leaks as it pertains to Fortnite. He has suggested the van might require players to put in resources in order to revive a teammate.

It looks like you’ll need to throw in things like weapons, ammo or building supplies, which leads us to wonder what the ‘Reboot Card’ was all about.

According to the leak here’s what you’ll have to sacrifice:

  • 100 mats
  • 75 Medium Ammo 
  • Common Assault Rifle

It’s likely that you’d be able to use different things once it actually goes live but that’s just what the leak is saying for now. We’ll know for certain if and when Epic Games ever decides to make these vans go live in Fortnite.

The National Football League and Epic Games have announced a continuation in their partnership, which is allowing for a slew of new NFL-themed skins in the mega-popular battle royale game Fortnite within the next few days. 

NFL skins in Fortnite are nothing new. Back in 2018, a slew of skins based on NFL football teams made their way into the game, much to the excitement of fans of the sport.

Unfortunately, while the skins returned to the Item Shop in early 2020 due to the Super Bowl, they never really gained notoriety, with the only exception being when Epic gave players a free refund for the skins after the Washington Football Team’s name and logo was changed a few months back.

Despite this, it seems like more NFL skins are on the way.

The new NFL skins will feature a redesigned look compared to their old versions.

The two mega companies have recently announced that they will be “extending” their partnership to allow for more NFL skins in Fortnite. According to a joint press release from both companies, the new skins will be completely redesigned from their previous looks and will have a “more athletic” and “aerodynamic look and feel”.

This new selection of skins will be called the Gridiron Gang Outfits and will represent all 32 NFL teams in both the AFC and NFC.

In addition to the newly redesigned skins, fans will also have a chance to get their hands on a brand new Back Bling for their NFL skins, named Logo-a-go-go. While the name’s a bit of a tongue-twister, these new items are basically just the logo for the team you want to represent stuck onto the back of your character.

Release Date and Time

According to the company, the skins and back bling will be added to the Fortnite Item Shop in just a few days, on November 25. Like every other item added to the in-game store, it should appear when the store gets updated that day.

Currently, the big unknown is how long the items will be in the shop for. Surely, they’ll only be available for a limited time, however, the exact time frame is unclear. It could be in their for as short as a day or maybe a bit longer.

Chances are though that Epic will give fans a few days to get their hands on it before pulling it from the store. Regardless, NFL fans should be ready to grab these items if they want it because with Fortnite, you never know when they’ll come back.
