The Battle Bus is the bus in Battle Royale. It is a modified bus that flies over the map using a balloon on top of it that had a Vindertech logo on it. The bus looks like a school bus but is blue and says "Battle Bus" on the back rather than school bus, and there appears to be a party going on inside.
It is possible to thank the Battle Bus driver by pressing your emote bind, while riding the bus. On PC it's set to "B" by default.
There are 3 stages of the game where the battle bus are involved that appear underneath the minimap along with a timer
- This symbol means that the game is still on the Spawn Island, if there is no countdown it means that it is waiting for players. Once there is enough players a ten second countdown will start.
- This symbol means that the the game has started, all players are in the battle bus cannot jump until the bus has reached the island and the countdown is until players can jump.
- This symbol means that the bus is over land and players can jump and deploy their Glider. If anyone is left on the bus when the timer reaches zero, they will be forced off to jump. If a player is AFK, then they will drop down at the end of the flyover and be waiting there for very easy eliminations.
