Since the start of Fortnite’s 10th season, conversation around the game has been dominated by one thing: its horrible hulking death robots.
Epic has tweaked the mech’s design to add in a warning laser and drastically nerf the spawn rate in competitive playlists. But for the vast majority of the playerbase, the B.R.U.T.E. is clearly still a problem: evidenced by #RemoveTheMech trending worldwide on Twitter last weekend.
Now, Epic has laid out why it has not removed the mech, and why it thinks the bastard bot is fine to stick around. (For now at least – nothing in Fortnite is permanent.)
