Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

I suspect the "fortnite battle bus" is just an Actor with predefined path and player spectator pawns following it (attached to it).

When the player hits ...whatever button that is to jump out. The player's chosen Pawn is spawned behind the bus and the Player Controller possess it.

From that point on the game-play starts. Players falling and so on.

Anyway this is my best guess. It might be something completely different but I somehow doubt it.

i agree it appears to be an actor possibly on a spline path then the players spawn and posses their character.
