How To Give Thanks To The Bus Driver in Fortnite

After spending time on the spawn island, you’ll instantly be transported to the Battle Bus, where you’ll spend just a bit of time before dropping into your favorite point. If you look to the bottom left of your screen, you’ll likely see plenty of players thanking the bus driver, which is a simple task to do as long as you use the following button:

  • On Controller – D-Pad Down
  • On Keyboard & Mouse: B key

Once you hit this, you’ll see your name appear in the growing list of players thanking the bus driver. It’s a kind gesture, sure, but is there anything that you get for it while you’re trying to fight for your life on the grounds below?

What Does Thanking The Bus Driver Do In Fortnite?

Surely, thanking the bus driver must give you something while you’re playing the game, right? While it may seem like it will increase your luck of finding weapons like the Enforcer AR, or new items like the Flowberry Fizz, it’s just a kind gesture. Nothing more, nothing less. It’s become a bit of a customary thing at this point, but some quests involve thanking the Bus Driver before matches.

So, in a way, you could thank the Bus Driver enough to get some XP to put toward your Battle Pass. See, a kind action is always rewarded in some way or another. Just make sure you remember to do it before you jump off the bus, or you’ll miss out on your chance to give them thanks.

No matter if you’re new to the world of Fortnite, or you just want to find out if you can play on the Cloud, we’ve got you covered in our Fortnite section below. Be sure to get yourself up to snuff on the newest season before dropping in.
