A month ago we reported that one Fortnite player had took it upon himself to form a petition to ‘thank the bus driver before jumping out of the battle bus in Fortnite’. In today’s v5.30 update, Epic has indeed answered his wishes.
By pressing the ‘B’ key on PC, or down on the D-Pad on the gamepad (the emote keybind), players can thank the bus driver before jumping out of the Battle Bus.
These messages of thanks fill the bottom left corner alongside the player names.
“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 read.
Unfortunately Kody’s Change.org petition no longer exists, and appears to have been removed by the platform. Whilst he wasn’t the first to make the suggestion, he certainly helped to shine a light on it. Thankfully though, his wholesome request will now live on forever. ❤️
