One day after promising changes made to the BRUTE 'Mechs in Fortnite Battle Royale Epic Games is already lowering spawn rates in the arena and tournament playlists of the game. This follows a Friday night when #removethemech was the world's most widely read hashtag by Twitter .
Fortnite will feature in the Champion Series next weekend. That means more can come. It is still unclear whether the BRUTEs will participate in this tournament. The BRUTEs came into play with the introduction of Fortnite Season X, but many players are dissatisfied with their impact on game balance and overwhelm them.
Yesterday, Epic said it would introduce a target laser indicating the direction of the 'Mech suit targets rockets as they are loaded. This beam will also have directional audio. The players demanded a meaningful nerf and said that was not so, it just gave them more visual information. It is almost universally applicable. BRUTE spawn rates are lowered to 21
A player instantly got an appealing shot and suggested lowering the spawn rate for BRUTEs to 0 percent instead. "Epic needs to hire you as soon as possible," another answered.
