Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 has undoubtedly been an exciting season launch, with Epic Games completely flipping the game's mechanic on its head and introducing a level of vehicular warfare that has never been seen before. This shift to the meta has brought with it powerful rides, including the Mythic Nitro Cars and the War Bus. While these wagons serve their purpose in the game, they also have their fair share of bugs and glitches.

This was highlighted in a recent Reddit clip shared by u/Frootcakes, where the player showcased a moment from a match; they could be seen wearing the Ringmaster Scarr outfit from the Chapter 5 Season 3 Battle Pass and watching the War Bus slowly float up into the sky. The scene showcased the War Bus effortlessly gliding through the air, prompting them to joke about the Battle Bus' usual state of flying and saying:

"The armored bus yearns for its natural habitat”

The clip attracted much attention from the community, with players coming forward to not only express their confusion regarding the War Bus glitch but also marvel and joke about the genuinely awe-inspiring moment that came with it. u/ConsequenceApart4391 joked about how the War Bus was floating up into the sky since the Bus Driver wanted his car back.

u/Lucas_Ilario, on the other hand, jokingly referenced the game's collaboration with the Fallout franchise, expressing how the War Bus glitch is a result of Epic Games joining hands with Bethesda, a developer infamous for their share of glitches. Meanwhile, u/triccer could not help but simply appreciate the scenery that the moment spawned.

Highlighting the comforting nature of the War Bus floating up to the sky, Reddit user u/North_Cartoonist_846 commented:

"This is the most wholesome thing I saw today! Thank you, it brought back NES feels."

The War Bus was introduced in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 as an addition to the game's library of vehicles for the post-apocalyptic saga. As of this writing, there are only two War Buses that spawn on the Island during every match. They do not have a fixed location and can spawn anywhere on the map, and players have to spot it themselves if they want to go after it.

The War Bus also has a chance of having a Boss NPC alongside it, further adding to the rewards of seeking this wagon of war out and claiming it for yourself.
