Fortnite player discovers “crazy” secret reboot trick that can carry matches
One Fortnite player has shared an interesting discovery regarding a reboot trick that can possibly turn the tide of the match.
If you’ve been playing Fortnite for a while now, chances are you know that rebooting someone in the game is a matter of life and death in most situations. Though sometimes, you can get lucky and bring your friends back unnoticed.
But it goes without saying that heading to a Reboot Van is a risky move in the first place, regardless of where you are on the map. All thanks to its extremely loud noise, which gives away your position during the reboot progress.
However, one Fortnite player has discovered a reboot trick that lets you save your teammates in the craziest way possible. And perhaps, it could be a viable option for those who love to cause chaos.
A user on Reddit has discovered that it’s possible to steal the reboot progress from an enemy, as shown in the clip they posted.
In the clip, the player used a Shockwave Grenade to launch themselves in the air and dive into an unsuspecting enemy who’s in the middle of rebooting someone.
After successfully landing on top of a Reboot Van and eliminating the enemy, they attempted to use the van to reboot their squad members. Much to their surprise, instead of starting from zero, the reboot progress picked up from where the previous enemy left.
This discovery, of course, has shocked many other players who were unaware of this.
In the comments, one user wrote, “YOU CAN DO. WHAT.”
“Just when you think you know how this game works, then…” said another.
On the other hand, one person couldn’t help but wonder, “Imagine you rebooted the enemies, though?” to which another replied, “I laughed.”
That said, some players were not too surprised with this discovery, claiming that this was added at the start of this chapter. One person wrote, “They mentioned it at the start of chapter patch notes but I noticed a lot of people missed it.”
