As we all know that Reboot vans only work in squad modes and obviously not in solos. The vans are not supported in any mode that already has respawns enabled. So, if a teammate is eliminated and has no chance of revival, players can respawn them using a reboot card dropped by them. These reboot cards will stay on the ground for 90 seconds, in this time span players can grab it and later go on a search for a reboot van. If you manage to do so, get to the reboot van, and you can interact with it to bring your teammate back in the game. This process generally takes 10 seconds and after which your teammate will then drop back into the game with a limited inventory consisting of:

  • 1 Common Pistol
