Now, this one really isn't even bad. It's just a genre and type of gaming, but Fortnite is often lauded for being unique and innovative. This one isn't an area they should be praised in, though.

Reboot vans were added to Fortnite in Chapter 1 Season 8. These were added to give players a chance to bring their teammates back after they had died.

There's no question that adding building to a shooting game was a huge success. Rather than having players eternally exposed, like in other games, Fortnite allowed players to protect themselves.
