Fortnite Season X can be defined as a few different things. It can be defined as fun if you enjoy the absolute chaos this season has brought. However, it can also be defined as painstakingly bad if you don’t enjoy huge mech suits firing missile barrages at you from 50 yards away.
The community has let their opinion be known regarding the B.R.U.T.E. in Fortnite. A majority of players feel it is far too unbalanced and unfair to go up against. There is a small section of outliers that feel differently, but for the most part, the reaction has been negative.
With something so massive and game-changing, there will, of course, be some hilarious clips. In a video put together by a Reddit user, we get to see some of the best reasons why the B.R.U.T.E. should probably receive a nerf.
Just days into Season X, we already have multiple compilations of streamers losing fights to B.R.U.T.E.s. However, the way that they lose the fights is what makes the videos so entertaining.
As you can see, getting eliminated by the giant mech suit is almost unavoidable. The B.R.U.T.E. can fire up to 10 missiles at once and take out any structure you attempt to build. There’s very little skill in operating the vehicle, and players exploit this to no end.
It’s unclear whether or not Epic Games will decide to make a change to the B.R.U.T.E. The community has voiced their opinion, but Epic doesn’t always listen to their player base. We’ll just have to wait and see if they choose to nerf/vault their newest vehicle.
