Patch V8.30 for Fortnite has been released and as expected, marks the arrival of the reboot van. It also brings with it a new event and two limited time modes. The patch introduces a new Multi-Select feature as well, where players can select multiple props and building tiles in order to move them all at once.

Details regarding the Reboot Van are:

- When squad members are eliminated they now drop their Reboot Card, which can be collected by other squad members.

- Reboot Vans / Cards are disabled in Solos, Big Team Limited Time Modes, and any modes with respawns enabled.

- Reboot Cards remain in the world for 90s after they’ve been dropped.

- Pickup Interaction time: 0.5 seconds.

- Bringing Reboot Cards to Reboot Vans will bring each squad member whose card has been collected back into battle.

- Collected Reboot Cards can be turned in by any squad member regardless of which member picked up the Card.

- Interaction time: 10 seconds.- A Reboot Van goes on cooldown and cannot be activated again for 120 seconds after it’s used.

- Rebooted squad members return with:

  - 100 Health

  - 1 Common Pistol

  - 36 Light Ammo

  - 100 Wood

This latest update also introduces the Buccaneer’s Bounty Event.

Under this event, players get to experience a different Limited Time Mode, which rotates daily beginning April 10 and ends on April 15. Players who complete free challenges will be able to earn in-game rewards.

The first of the two Limited Time Modes is Fly Explosives. Under this mode, only explosive weapons can be found. Floor Loot spawners occasionally spawns Jetpacks, which are available exclusively in this mode. Storm wait times are reduced, and the rocket ammunition is capped at 120.

The second is Team Rumble and details include:

- Increased Eliminations to win the match from 100 to 150

- Decreased the final circle radius from 20000 to 12500 to promote a more chaotic late game

- Removed one minute from first circle shrink time to force combat to occur sooner

- Increased chest and floor loot spawn chances from 80-90% to 100%

- Increased Assault Rifle spawn chances by 67% in chests

- Decreased Suppressed Pistol spawn chances by 75%

- Supply drops now drop two Legendary weapons and two additional consumables

- Increased Compact SMG and shotgun drop chances by 50% in supply drops

- Decreased Rocket Launcher spawn chances by 50% in chests and 67% in supply drops

- Lowered Spike Trap drop chance by 50% (resulting in an increase to launch pads and campfires)
