In Fortnite, every time I place a marker on the map before dropping, the bus will honk. For some reason, every time I jump when it honks, I will have an almost perfect drop. This happening many times over again has led me to believe that epic made something to calculate when you should drop and made the bus honking signify when you should drop. I don't know about any proof, so I'm asking the community here if they can show proof.
This is a very complicated question that doesn't have a nice, clean answer. I will post all the information I can find about this phenomenom here, and I encourage you to do the same.
Note: While there is only one link that specifically mentions this happening in OP's ask, many more comments on the other threads linked mention similar experiences. This isn't as simple as just adding Support vs Opposing
Evidence FOR the phenomenon:
- u/harryday123 believes as of 3 months ago that the sound signals when to drop, similar experiences reported by others
Evidence AGAINST the phenomenon:
Evidence that doesn't support or deny phenomenon:
Overall, there isn't enough evidence to conclusively prove (or deny) that the phenomenon exists. This requires in-game testing, and I will help contribute by downloading the game at some point- unless someone else beats me to it. I am making this answer a wiki so that other users may add their insights and experiences.
