The Battle Bus commonly appears to have a blue paint job, unlike most common buses that are painted yellow. A large hot air balloon, inflated by the blue flame under it, can be seen on top of the bus, allowing the mobile vechile to fly. One thing to note about the bus is that it has wheel clamps without tires, rendering it immobile on the ground.
- A crashed Battle Bus can be seen on a mountain in between Shifty Shafts and Dusty divot. Interestingly enough, the balloon on this Battle Bus has deflated, and it has also lost the blue color on the normal Battle Bus balloon.
- As of the Season 6 "Fortnitemares" update, a battle bus (seen in the Fortnitemares 2018 trailer carrying the Deadfire outfit) has crashed above Leaky Lake and to the left of Lazy Links as a result of The Cube / Kevin island exploding (it is the same as the crashed one outside of Shifty Shafts model)
