Fortnite Battle Bus



The Battle Bus in Fortnite carries loopers from the spawn island and drops them on the main island for battle. For unknown reasons, one player has calculated the bus’ exact speed instead of thanking the bus driver.

Fortnite is clearly not the most realistic game out there. In fact, it allows players to dress up like robots, ninjas, birds, or superheroes, use weapons like a Shockwave Grenade, and then take on enemies from other universes like Star Wars and DC.

How fast is the Fortnite Battle Bus?

Even though it is full of the most random elements, the concepts of physics and mathematics can be applied to Fortnite. Accordingly, a player calculated the speed of the Battle Bus, and to say the least, the community is proud of this genius.

How to calculate the Battle Bus’ speed in Fortnite?

Reddit user u/somedudebeingcool used trigonometry to first calculate the distance which the Battle Bus travels in a drop window. They marked a location in the middle of the map and gathered the following stats:

  • Duration of the bus’ drop window (33 seconds)
  • Distance to the marked location at the beginning of the drop window
  • Distance to the marked location at the end of the drop window
  • Shortest distance to the marked location in the entire drop window

u/somedudebeingcool claims that their method is far more reliable than the previous ones that have already surfaced on the internet. Apparently, some players drove vehicles across the island and compared their speed to the Battle Bus.

In 2018, another mathematics enthusiast in the Fortnite community drove the Golf Cart at a speed of 15 mph over a Battle Bus route. They then compared the time taken by the cart to that of the bus and concluded that the latter travels at a speed of over 400 miles/hour.

In contrast, u/somedudebeingcool claims his results are based on facts. They divided the distance traveled by the bus, by the duration of the drop window, and concluded that it travels at a speed of 75 m/s (meters/second) which is close to 270 km/h or 167 m/h.

The speed of Battle Bus in Fortnite is surprisingly realistic

Considering that the cruising speed of airplanes is close to 800km/h, it makes sense for a bus to cruise at 270 km/h while carrying 100 players. This number is believable, and members of the r/FortNiteBR subreddit appreciated the effort.

While some called u/somedudebeingcool the teacher of Einstein, others thanked them for clearing up the confusion. As it turns out, several players had thought about the speed of the Battle Bus but never knew how to calculate it.

Tfue is back in Fortnite

Tfue’s return to Fortnite has been no less than a highlight reel so far. He’s won several Zero Build tournaments and made the record for the most kills in a Squads game recently.

Tfue played a major role in making Fortnite the biggest Battle Royale title ever. Back in the day, he was the face of the game and fans could not believe it when he quit in Chapter 2.

However, Tfue is finally back and he’s causing mayhem in the newly introduced Zero Build mode.

Tfue and Zemie drop 68 eliminations in a Fortnite Squads game

Tfue and fellow Twitch streamer Zemie have participated in several tournaments together. Fans are well aware of their skills and synergy which has helped in yielding great results consistently.

In a recent live stream, Zemie and Tfue tried to drop 50 bombs in every game. This basically means that they were trying to get over 50 kills collectively. A Squads lobby is definitely better to attempt such challenges because it is easier to find groups of players.

Little did the streamers know that they would end up creating a record for the most kills in a Squads game. The fact that they accomplished this feat as a duo is even more impressive. Tfue racked up 38 kills while Zemie had 30 eliminations under his name.

A total of 68 elimination in a single game is as unreal as it sounds. There is no denying the fact that Tfue and Zemie are two of the most skilled players out there, but eliminating 70% of the players in a lobby also requires a ton of luck.

Fortnite community reacts to Tfue and Zemie’s record

Interestingly, Tfue’s latest Fortnite record has received a mixed response from loopers around the world. While some creators have praised the duo, others believe that they created the record in a bot lobby.

Nah y’all are actually different 😂🔥

— NRG JoeWo (@AverageJoeWo) June 16, 2022

Kinda weird to flex it knowing y’all did bot lobbies

— Texas (@TexasSznn) June 16, 2022

ok that is actually impressive even though 90% of the lobby is AI’s

— RYZO (@ryzo_yt) June 16, 2022

A bot lobby includes a ton of AI. It’s easier to get kills in a bot lobby because the AI can randomly spawn close to the player.

On the other hand, several fans also pointed out that famous streamers get a ton of free/easy kills because of stream snipers.

Amidst the contrasting opinions, Tfue and Zemie proudly hold the record for most kills in a Fortnite Squads game. It is safe to assume that no one will be able to break this record for a long time, let alone in Chapter 3 Season 3.

DMR and Heavy Sniper Rifle in Fortnite

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 2 challenges have arrived. One of the quests requires players to eliminate two opponents with ranged weapons – here’s how to do it.

Epic Games’ Battle Royale title has a wide range of weapons and each serves a unique purpose. While some like the Combat SMG are lethal in close-range combat, others like the Heavy Sniper Rifle offer a commendable range.

Here’s a list of ‘ranged’ weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 that players can use to complete a weekly challenge.

What are ranged weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3?

Players might have assumed that only sniper rifles and assault rifles are ranged weapons. However, literally, any weapon in the loot pool comes under this category. This includes pistols, shotguns, SMGs, and obviously, ARs and snipers.

The loot pool in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 is quite different from Chapter 3 Season 2. The likes of MK Seven, Drum Shotgun, and the LMG were put in the vault and new weapons like the DMR and the Two-Shot shotgun took their place.

To complete the weekly challenge, players can rely on these weapons since they’re the most efficient:

  • DMR for long-range
  • Hammer Assault Rifle for mid-range
  • Combat SMG for close range
  • Striker Pump Shotgun for close range

How to get weapons of Epic rarity or above in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Luckily, there are several ways to get brilliant loot in Chapter 3 Season 3. With the Reality Seeds, you can plant a Reality Sapling. Picking up weeds upgrades the quality of loot of the Reality Sapling, and after a day or two, players can get Mythic loot right at the beginning of the game.

Another way to get weapons of Epic rarity or above is the Upgrade bench. They are usually present in gas stations which are quite common in major locations like Coney Crossroads and Chonker’s Speedway.

The final tip to complete this weekly challenge is to hop in Team Rumble instead of standard BR modes (Solo, Duos, Squads, and Trios). Amid the fast-paced action, the chances of getting two eliminations will be much higher.

Fortnite players have to launch into the air with the help of Geysers in Chapter 3 Season 3 in order to complete a weekly challenge that grants 15,000 XP.

Geysers have been an integral part of the Fortnite meta as they help players in launching into the air. One can use this boost to get away from enemies, escape the storm, or simply rotate to a new location.

As a quick late night reminder:

Week 2 Challenges will release in 7 hours and 17 minutes which means you’ll be able to get an extra 234K XP (2.925 Levels) later today! pic.twitter.com/UHKTPavM7i

A weekly challenge in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 Week 2 requires players to use three Geysers, and here’s a quick guide to completing it.

Geyser locations in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

It is worth noting that Geysers in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 are primarily located in the newly released biome that is full of giant mushrooms. POIs like Greasy Grove and Reality Falls are a part of this region.

Instead of roaming around in search of Geysers, you can simply head to the Peril Pass landmark marked in the image below. It has seven Geysers situated right next to each other.

Two more Geysers are present near the massive Reality Tree in Reality Falls:

You only need to launch yourself into the air with Geysers three times and nine locations have been specified in the images above.

How to use a Geyser in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3

Using a Geyser in Fortnite is as easy as it gets. You have to stand on it for a few seconds and the water pressure will automatically launch the character into the air. This is similar to Klombo’s blowholes that were present around the island in Chapter 3 Season 2.

Kanye West Joked About His Divorce From Kim Kardashian During A Surprise BET Awards Appearance And Said He Wanted To Declare Himself “Legally Dead” Following Their Messy Feud

The rapper took to the stage to honor Sean “Diddy” Combs at the BET Awards on Sunday, making reference to Kim for the first time since their public dispute earlier this year.

Kanye West looks to be making a return to the public eye.

If you’re a fan of Ye’s, you’ll know that he recently took a step back from the limelight after his split from Kim Kardashian hit a major rough patch.

After filing for divorce fairly amicably back in February 2021, Kim and Ye’s breakup took a messy turn in November, around the time that things started getting serious between Kim and her current boyfriend, Pete Davidson.


Paul Morigi / Getty Images

Of course, in light of Kim’s budding romance with Pete, this made for quite the awkward situation, and as a result, Ye wound up taking his frustrations to social media.

Starting in February and posting regularly until mid-March, Ye harassed Kim and Pete on Instagram, sharing their private messages and even encouraging his fans to yell at them in public.

Ye’s constant posts sparked major concern among his followers, with many accusing the rapper of exhibiting abusive behavior toward Kim and Pete. And in March, his Instagram account was suspended for 24 hours after he violated the platform’s harassment policies.

Flash forward to today, and Ye is yet to make a full return to the public eye, having only been spotted on the occasional public outing.

Interestingly, reports in the aftermath of their feud claimed that the Yeezy founder was actively seeking “behavioral” treatment, in order “to be a better human and a better dad.”

Taking to the stage to present the Lifetime Achievement Award to his longtime friend Sean “Diddy” Combs, the Donda rapper — whose face was completely covered by a black mask, hat, and sunglasses — was met with loud applause from the crowd.

“How do we crown our kings? How do we appreciate our kings?” his speech began, before going on to praise Diddy’s work in the music industry.

“To see Puff in real life at the ‘Missing You’ video, just like me tapping free like a little kid — I just need to meet this man. This is my favorite artist,” he said, sounding noticeably upbeat.

“You see I’m saying ‘favorite artist,’” he clarified. “Everything — not specifically production, the drip. Back then there was so many rules to hip-hop, and he broke all of them.”

Reflecting on what he learned from Diddy in his own career, Ye even made reference to his failed marriage to Kim, sparking mixed reactions from the crowd.

“He inspired so many of my choices. So many of my life choices. My wife choices,” he said as the audience erupted into noise.

“And here we are,” he added with a laugh. “Thanks for that, Puff.”


Leon Bennett / Getty Images for BET

What’s more, Ye also appeared to corroborate reports that he wanted to take “a year off” in the wake of his public feud with Kim, confirming in his speech that he recently took “a little hiatus.”

“I said, ‘I want to just declare myself legally dead for a year,’” he told the audience, seemingly referring to his absence since being banned from Instagram. “Nobody messin’ me. You know, I just want to be off the grid.”


Paras Griffin / Getty Images for BET

But, despite his hopes of keeping a low profile, Ye seemed to suggest that the opportunity to honor Diddy was reason enough to return to the public eye.


Jeff Kravitz / FilmMagic

“Puff is pretty persistent,” he explained. “Any of us in this room, if Puff ever need us, we need to jump and be there. This man has been through and survived a lot of stuff. Broke down a lot of doors so we could be standing. I know for me, that I could be here today.”

Aaron J. Thornton / Getty Images for BET

He finished the emotional speech by telling Diddy in the audience: “If I never told you, I love you. You’re my brother.”


Kevin Winter / Getty Images

So, in light of his absence from the spotlight, fans were certainly glad to see Ye sounding so positive, with this marking his first awards show appearance since he pulled out of Coachella in April and had his Grammys performance scrapped in the same month due to “concerning online behavior.”


Angela Weiss / AFP via Getty Images

The speech is also the first time that Ye has made reference to Kim since they came to blows on Instagram, and coincides with reports that the exes are currently working on rebuilding their relationship as co-parents.


Roy Rochlin / Getty Images

In fact, just over a week ago, Kim gave her ex a rare shoutout too, praising him for being the “best dad” to their four kids in a sweet Father’s Day tribute.


Handout / Getty Images

Well, if Ye’s joke about their failed marriage is any indication, it seems like things might finally be looking a little more friendly between Kimye as they navigate the final stages of their split.

Kiko Kostadinov Spring 2023 Menswear

Kiko Kostadinov Spring 2023 Menswear

The bookshelves on the top floor in the Lycée Henry VI in Paris’s Latin Quarter are kept locked behind metal grates. From my seat at Kiko Kostadinov’s spring 2023 menswear show I could make out some musty encyclopedias and history volumes with yellowing pages collecting dust. The past is always present, but mostly out of reach.

On the runway, Kostadinov was looking to rewrite his own history books. Bulgaria’s fraught past with the Ottoman Empire was his sartorial starting point; he foun inspiration in Ottoman Janissary military garb and the work of traditional Bulgarian painter Zlatyu Boyadzhiev. Janissary draping and textures informed the single-breasted coats with their hems folded up and tucked into belts. Bulgarian shearlings and layered trousers were reimagined as alpaca and chenille. The Vietnamese artist Dahn Vo’s reappropriations of Vietnamese and American history, in particular We the People, in which Vo attempted to rebuild the Statue of Liberty from copper pieces, informed the hexagonal decals on the closing looks, each shape coming together…but not there yet.

If you didn’t have the press release you would probably never be able to work backwards to these references from these excellent clothes. That’s fine. At the end of the show a fellow journalist slapped his thighs and exclaimed, “Wow! That was great!”

What made it great? It was the iridescent cargo pants and braided hem bag worn with the brand’s new clunky sneaker. It was the trio of minimal suits that opened the show, a beige worn regularly, the next with pants inside out, and the third entirely reversed. It was the spiffy pragmatism and lightness of cropped jackets with contrast yokes and a single pocket at the back and the ethereal prettiness of winged adornments that envelope the shoulders and arms, almost like a chrysalis. It absolutely was the leather jacket worn over a ragged Bulgarian-made sweater that had a darted cocoon back. “Fucking gorgeous,” another friend said of the jacket after the show—it’s a disservice to everyone looking at this collection online that you cannot see the gentle swoop of its lower back.

The history that will be written for Kostadinov this season has far less to do with his thoughtful inspiration and more to do with his place in the fashion industry at large. For a long time fashion has slotted Kiko into a conceptual space when he is, underneath all the imagination and fascination, one of the most competent, surefooted, and clever designers of wearable and luxurious menswear in the game. “We don’t need to prove we can work with color or we can make crazy things,” he said at a preview. “We can do suiting, tailoring, workwear.”

Hours after the show Kostadinov was presiding over a techno party (fog, lasers, and bass thump thump thumping) in the hinterlands of Paris. Steve Lacy, Kozaburo Akasaka, and other menswear icons mingled. Outside, guests paid their host no mind, despite the fact that admittance required getting his logo stamped on one’s arm. “Nobody knows who I am,” he smirked. Kostadinov likes to be under the radar, but with clothes this good, it’s only a matter of time until everyone is paying attention.

Vivetta Resort 2023

Bows as huge as kites; cut-outs in the shape of hearts; roses spiraling in vortexes. Vivetta Ponti was in cheerful mode for resort. “People want to party again, to enjoy life,” she said, talking about the spirit of effervescence that infused her collection.

There’s always a whiff of malice in Ponti’s idea of femininity, something bittersweet and surreal. She likes to escape to an illusory place, which isn’t dark in the least, rather fluffy and featherlight like cotton candy. The escape route isn’t surprising, since IRL her three kids and a very busy life leading her independent company keep her well grounded. “I’m a natural born optimist,” she said. “I have so many projects that I want to activate, so much energy.” Indeed. You don’t raise three kids and manage your own label if you don’t believe that the future looks at you with benevolent eyes, and if you aren’t blessed with ample supplies of a special kind of built-in propeller.

For resort, Ponti played with seductive propositions—feminine sleeveless ’50s dresses with ample décolletages printed with roses; ultra short miniskirts with huge bows at the front worn with romantic laced-up ruffled tops; light tiered sundresses in crisp poplin inducing a feel of summery freshness. They were offered perched on towering glittery platforms, on sandals with fluffed marabou feathers, or on knee-high boots with heart-shaped cut-outs. Delicate jewelry was also part of the picture, as well as a pretty pair of high-waisted denim pants with a crystal-studded heart framing the navel.
