When it comes to the largest video games on the planet, there will always be iconic images and items synonymous with them and the Fortnite Battle bus is no different being as integral to the game as it’s building or even its weapons.
One of the few elements that every player is guaranteed to see when jumping into the epic battle royale action, the Fortnite Battle Bus has become something just accepted among players. But what is it? Here’s everything you need to know.
What is the Fortnite Battle Bus?
The Fortnite Battle Bus acts as your transport into every match-up that you’ll enter. A school bus that’s lifted into the air with a large balloon, the battle bus propels itself across the map, letting players leap from it to glide where they begin.
Fun-fact: If you leave the starting island of Fortnite and head towards that actual continent where the battle royale takes place, you can sometimes see the actual Fortnite Battle Bus in the sky waiting to begin its journey. This is only the case if the path is towards the Eastern edge of the map.
Before you leap from the bus into the combat zone, however, you should pay your respects and thank the bus driver for their effort. Some players do this as a superstition of good luck but the main reason you should do so is to complete the related milestone quest for some free XP.
Driveable (Armoured) Fortnite Battle Bus
The second variation of the Fortnite Battle Bus is actually one that you yourself can drive around with your squad to take out your foes. The Armoured Battle Bus can be found in various locations across the map with the easiest to find being the one by the Reality Falls location.
This vehicle has two turrets and places to sit, letting you blast away anyone who stands in your way. The vehicle is also upgradable to make it even more destructive.
