How to thank the bus driver in Fortnite - never complains, always ready, least you can do is say thanks

How to thank the bus driver in Fortnite

If you wondering how to thank the bus driver then you've come to the right place. If your wondering why you'd want to , or even how it's a thing then we've got you covered as well. 

What started almost as a joke - the ability to thanks the bus driver for shipping you to your doom - quickly became the most requested feature in Fortnite (opens in new tab) . That's all thanks to someone called Kody Keddie who created a petition called "Add the ability to thank the bus driver before jumping out of the battle bus in Fortnite". Originally the petition read: 

"Since I was just a boy I have always loved jumping out of the battle bus but all this time I have felt something was missing. And that thing is the ability to thank the driver of the battle bus, he or she is truly a great person and they provide us a great service, I think it is time we can truly appreciate their service, don't you agree?".

The petition's long gone now but people agreed in their droves. As a result Epic listened and have added the feature. 

How to thank the bus driver in Fortnite

You might have noticed the stream of 'so and so thanked the driver' messages while you were waiting to jump from the battle bus. To get in on the action, just tap down on the d-pad before you jump.

It doesn't do much yet, save for maybe a warm feeling in your heart for kindness shown to a fiction entity, but who knows? Maybe it'll be a challenge later on down the line.
