Epic Games has never shied away from testing new things and experimenting with "Fortnite Battle Royale." After all, this is a huge reason why the video game has become popular and managed to get over 250 million players in a year and a half. The video game itself is unique because of its building aspect, but there are many other things the game developer has added which seemed rather odd, but they have turned out to be perfect additions.

Early in Season 8, players have noticed vans scattered around the in-game island. These vans could be seen from a distance, but they would disappear as soon as players approached them.

Fortunately, they were available in the replay mode, and data miners have figured out that those are actually respawned vans. Recently, it was revealed that players will have to sacrifice certain items in order to respawn their teammates.

The sacrifice will have to be made

At the moment, it is unknown how exactly the respawn mechanic will work in "Fortnite Battle Royale" and when it will come out. However, it is safe to assume that it will only be available in duos and squads and that players will have to use respawn vans to bring their teammates back to the match.

Data miner lucas7yoshi, who has previously leaked a lot of other accurate information, shared some more details about the respawn system in the popular video game.

The Twitter user found more files in the game data which show how the system will work, and it turns out that "Fortnite" players will have to sacrifice certain items in order to respawn their teammates.

As you can see in the tweet above, the cost for the teammate respawn will be 100 Wood, 75 Medium Ammo, and a Common Assault Rifle.

In addition to this, players will most likely have to pick up the "Reboot Card" item to activate the respawn. Keep in mind that Epic Games could change these values before the mechanic comes out, and there is a good chance that there will be different values for duo and squad modes.

Respawn in battle royale games

The battle royale games are all about the last man standing, but it turns out that the respawn mechanic works just fine in them.

"Realm Royale" has first implemented this mechanic, followed by "Apex Legends." Epic Games has tested respawns for a few months in "Fortnite Battle Royale," but it has only happened in certain limited-time game modes. It is unknown how well the respawn system will work in this game, but, hopefully, we will be able to test it soon!
