With Fortnite’s latest V5.3 patch, players can now thank the Battle Bus driver before  dropping into the map.

Since the advent of the internet, memery is at an all-time high. It’s thanks to one of these memes that Fortnite players can now express their politeness to the Battle Bus driver.


Thanks to Reddit user zenerations, passengers who thanked the bus driver were put in a very positive light. Zeneration’s coffin vs sarcophagus meme, which compared impolite people to polite passengers to commoners and pharaohs, inspired many other iterations praising basic human kindness.

The widespread meme made its way to Fortnite, where players would joke about thanking the bus driver before they dropped into the game’s map with their team.


This meme is now a reality, and players can actually thank the Battle Bus driver with Fortnite’s V5.3 patch.

To demonstrate their politeness, users can simply press the B key on their keyboards, or hit the down arrow on the D-Pad just before dropping out of the Battle Bus.

This action is displayed in the chat, broadcasting players’ politeness for their team to see.


There are no punishments for declining to thank the driver. The action is completely optional – much like real-life.


Fortnite invisibility glitch lets players cause absolute chaos

Fortnite players have got a new way to go invisible and troll their opponents, and it involves using the Mudflap truck. 

As the Fortnite seasons have unfolded, and Epic Games has added plenty of new content to the battle royale, players have found more and more ways to get an advantage over their opponents – be it legitimately or by using glitches and exploits. 


In the past, these glitches have ranged from being able to use whatever skin you want, getting under the map, and being able to carry more items than normally allowed. 

There have also been God Mode and invisibility exploits too. While Epic has been pretty good at rooting those out, even disabling the items that help players use these glitches, there’s a new one they’ll have to get rid of.

The Mudflap truck is central to the new glitch.

The new invisibility glitch was pointed out by YouTuber GlitchKing who showed that it works similar to the invisibility glitch with the boat in seasons past. 

Players have to be knocked at the same time they’re entering a Mudflap truck, and then by doing so, are thrown underneath the truck while knocked. If they’re then picked up a teammate, they are invisible to everyone else in the lobby. 

Sometimes it doesn’t work as intended, obviously, as GlitchKing showed that his friend had attempted it a few times – once being throw under the map and another being eliminated altogether.


Obviously, when players are invisible, it’s impossible to get a read on their position. As GlitchKing demonstrated, he was able to cause havoc by damaging enemies who were clueless as to where he was. Though, he did give the game away by picking up knocked enemies.

Given that the glitch revolves around the Mudflap, Epic might have to disable the vehicle while they get things figured out, but as of writing, the problem hasn’t made its way to their Trello board so it remains to be seen as to whether or not they’re aware of it.
