Gratitude is a virtue
One of the key returning features in nearly every Fortnite season since its introduction is thanking the bus driver. This is the hidden NPC who drives players across the island to drop onto the map and fight for that Victory Royale. But is thanking the bus driver back in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2?
How to thank the Bus Driver on PC and consoles in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2
Thankfully, nothing has changed with thanking the bus driver in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2: Mega. Players can still thank them every single match that they are in. As for how you go about that, it hasn’t changed, either, from the past seasons of battle royale.
Thanking the bus driver in Fortnite depends on the platform and method of input you’re using. For those of you who are on a controller, all you need to do is push down on the D-Pad of your respective controller.
This method works for any console platform, including Xbox, PlayStation, and Nintendo Switch. In addition, if you’re using a controller on mobile or PC, it works the same way. However, if you’re using a PC and choosing to play with keyboard and mouse, it’s a different story.
Keyboard and mouse players will want to hit the B key while in the battle bus at the start of a battle royale match. It is also a different situation for those on mobile, such as playing on an Android smartphone.
If you are playing on a mobile device using the touchscreen controls, you’ll want to hit the emote button. You can find this emote button usually in the top right corner of your touchscreen, so long as you haven’t changed any of the settings.
What you should know about thanking the bus driver is that it must happen before you leave the battle bus. Even if the battle bus is still in the sky, if you’ve left the bus already, you can’t thank the bus driver anymore.
Bus Driver Quests, explained
As for why you would want to thank the bus driver, there are a couple of reasons. For one, there is the nifty feeling of being grateful to whoever this mysterious bus driver is. But in a practical sense, it’s there to get you some rewards via the Chapter 4 Season 2 quests.
As with the last couple of seasons, there are some new thank the bus driver quests in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2. Under the milestone section, the first quest begins with asking the player to thank the bus driver in five different matches.
It rewards you with 6,000 experience once you complete this task. There are 20 stages in total for this questline this season, so be prepared to thank the bus driver in every match you do in Season 2.
