The massive addition in Fortnite Season 10 is the BRUTE – a two-person mech that may smash, shoot, and rocket-spam opponents into submission. As you would possibly guess, the Fortnite group is not too proud of their latest toy.
Epic Games is infamous for including overpowered objects with out seeming to think about what they will do to the meta of their extremely profitable recreation.
Everyone remembers the Infinity Blade debacle, but it surely seems Epic might have a brief reminiscence right here. The BRUTE – the latest addition to Fortnite with Season X – is nearly as controversial is the Infinity Blade was months in the past.
The actual kicker to the BRUTE is that it is accessible in Arena Mode as effectively. Players are grabbing BRUTES with 1,000 HP and strolling by opponents for the win.
One Reddit person thinks that Epic is aware of precisely what they’re doing with loopy, overpowered additions just like the BRUTE and Infinity Blade.
The Mech, just like the sword, is a poisonous advertising and marketing technique. from r/FortniteAggressive
Both the FortniteBR and FortniteAggressive subreddits are suffering from clips and complaints from the brand new BRUTE.
The group response is obvious: this can be a step too far.
I really feel just like the query NickMercs poses on this video hits the nail on the pinnacle as to what Epic was pondering with the discharge of the BRUTE.
They love messing with the sport and knew they could not do issues like this earlier than the World Cup. Now that the occasion is over, they’re throwing every part at us.
This was earlier than Nick ever used the BRUTE. Here’s a clip of him driving and killing with SypherPK.
Dakotaz has had loads of enjoyable of his personal within the BRUTE, however the tables bought turned on him for this one.
TimtheTatMan made some content material within the BRUTE, laughing as he cleared Pleasant Park with nothing however a mech.
The Fortnite season 10 response is stay! Here is somewhat instance of what the mech can do!

Most of those clips are of well-liked streamers having enjoyable with the BRUTEs, however nobody really thinks they are a good addition to the sport. You can leap round and make some good content material, but it surely actually feels just like the Infinity Blade another time.
I like you guys…I actually do BUT whoever determined so as to add ten Optimus Primes to the map each recreation in Season X must be put in timeout.
Why do this stuff have 1,000 HP, a protecting protect, 10 missiles to launch, and may stomp my ass out?

Hopefully, Epic will come to their senses and vault the BRUTE. Unfortunately, it looks like a piece of the Battle Pass challenges could be linked to them.
