Fortnite Added The Controversial B.R.U.T.E. Mechs To Help Players Who Were Struggling To Earn Eliminations

A new post on Fortnite's website, credited to 'The Fortnite Team', explains why the B.R.U.T.E. mechs were added to the game and the impact they've had so far.

The post acknowledges that the mechs have been controversial, but explains that they were added because one of the goals of Fortnite is "to bring players of all skill levels together to have a fun experience where anyone can win." The random nature of the mechs, which could give any player a massive unexpected advantage, gives less-experienced players a greater chance of racking up eliminations, or even a Victory Royale. "Right now, we know there are players out there who have never had that opportunity," the post says. They also want to provide "spectacle and entertainment", which means trying new things and introducing interesting wrinkles.

The post also contains two charts, showing how many eliminations B.R.U.T.E. mechs are typically racking up during a match, both as a number and then as a percentage of total kills.

These two charts show that the mechs, while significant, are not necessarily dominant in an average match of the game. "B.R.U.T.E. encounters should feel like a unique engagement and not be the dominant experience during a game," the post says. The B.R.U.T.E. was adjusted slightly in update 10.10, and now has an aiming laser so other players can see where they are pointing. They've also been tweaked to spawn less often in competitive Arena modes, hence the much lower percentages we see in the charts above.

Fortnite's tenth season is likely to run until early October.
