Thanking the driver is a feature Fortnite introduced long ago

Fortnite had introduced some changes to the Battle Bus, the vehicle that carries players over the map, allowing them to jump at preferred locations.

As we reported, it had increased the speed of the bus by 25% while also including a feature that would allow gamers to thank the driver.

It was a well-thought gesture by Epic, encouraging a sense of gratitude among gamers.

PC and console gamers can easily thank the driver

Console gamers can thank the bus driver by pressing down on the D-Pad on the controllers. For PC gamers, who use a keyboard and mouse combination, the process is different but just as easy. All they have to do is press the B key.

Mobile gamers

How mobile gamers can thank the driver

For mobile gamers, thanking the driver is a slightly more complicated process since they do not have the same key bindings as a controller or keyboard.

Thus gamers have to find the emote icon on the right side of the screen and thank the driver before jumping or being kicked out of the Battle Bus.

Notably, the process is same for Android and iOS.
