Epic Games stated that Fortnite BRUTEs will remain in competitive play

Fortnite Season 10 has been short of controversial. Not that every season doesn’t bring its own share of drama. But, this time around, the community has a huge debate ongoing. A debate a size of a mech you could say. This season of Fortnite introduced Brutes, which are giant mechs. A little Titanfall much? These overpowered mechs have been a strong point of discussion as it unbalances the way competitive play used to work. Even though the claims rage on, Epic Games stated that Fortnite Mechs will remain in competitive play.

Epic Games said about BRUTEs in Fortnite:

We’ve been monitoring the impact of the B.R.U.T.E. in gameplay and are investigating ways to enhance combat feedback when interacting with the vehicle. In v10.10, we will add a targeting laser that will show the direction the B.R.U.T.E. is aiming its rockets while they are being charged. This laser will have directional audio to help indicate when it’s being pointed at you, even if you’re behind a structure. We’ve also fixed a few mobility bugs that was allowing players to exploit its boost mechanic.

The B.R.U.T.E. remains within the core game modes (Solo, Duos, and Squads), select Limited Time Modes, and in competitive Arena and Tournament play. We’ll communicate any future iterations to the vehicle as we’re continuing to investigate a few more areas where we can improve combat interactions.

For those who were hopeful that BRUTEs in Fortnite will get scrapped altogether from competitive, this is not it, at least for the moment. Epic is surely trying to balance out the overpowered mechs. As per their most recent update, they are adding a targeting laser with directional audio to make it easier for you to identify if you’re about to be attacked by a BRUTE. In addition, as preparation for its Champion Series event, Epic announced through Reddit it made some changes to the spawn ratio of BRUTEs in the Arena/Tournament playlists to monitor how this affects gameplay.
