Season 10 of Fortnite introduced the B.R.U.T.E mech and to say the response has been positive would be a lie. The casual community had already began to voice their frustration but now some pros including Fortnite World Cup winner Bugha, Tfue and Dakota have expressed their disinterest in the mech and it could cause major issues for Fortnite and Epic Games.
Here at Forever Fortnite, we have already wrote about one of Fortnite’s biggest additions to Season 10, the B.R.U.T.E mech, and why it needs a nerf because of its overpowering feel within Battle Royale.
So far, nothing has changes in regards to the B.R.U.T.E and players are still discouraged with how powerful the mech really is and just how easy it is to wipe out other players.
Of course the community is never reluctant to voice their opinion and especially with this topic, that notion is definitely true and it has spread across the community like wildfire, especially in the professional community.
Let’s start with Bugha, who just won the inaugural Fortnite Solo World Cup not too long ago and is regarded as one of the best players in the world. Well, here is a clip from Reddit on one of his streams just being completely overpowered against the B.R.U.T.E.
"Fortnite World Cup Solo champion gets outplayed. from FortNiteBR"
That clip alone sparks some much needed controversy about the B.R.U.T.E’s. Bugha is one of the best builders in Fortnite and had a pretty stable build as he was healing up but was just completely dismantled by the B.R.U.T.E’s missiles and had no way of countering whatsoever.
Dakotaz is another professional Fortnite player who has always made his voice heard within the Fortnite community and he had this to say along with his own video on Twitter.
Once again, builds just flat out did not matter here as he was even more prepared than Bugha and was still eliminated like a speck of dust.
Even Fortnite streamer Tfue has gone as far to say that he will uninstall Fortnite due to the immense amount of rage-inducement from the B.R.U.T.E and he has his own piece of evidence as to why it needs to be taken out of the game.
When a player of Tfue’s stature, a Fortnite World Cup winner and many, many other professional players voice their opinion this strongly on an issue in the game, it is something that Epic Games will need to fix if it wants Fortnite to keep its reputation moving forward.
Fortnite has done an absolutely amazing job listening to its community since launch a few years ago and they need to do so now more than ever. The pros run the community and if nothing changes, we could see the issue of the B.R.U.T.E be fixed soon in Fortnite and possibly sooner than we think.
