Fortnite BRUTE changes arrived on Saturday when Epic Games released an update to the game. It focused on the spawn rates of the B.R.U.T.E.


Many in the community and especially the competitive community dislike the addition of the giant robots as they give an unfair advantage to many players.


Fortnite BRUTE Changes: Epic Games Lowers Spawn Rate


For now, Epic Games plans to simply change the spawn rate of the mech for each consecutive circle.


Beginning of Match

  • 21.5% chance that between 1-3 B.R.U.T.Es will spawn

Storm 1

  • 44% chance that between 1-4 B.R.U.T.Es will spawn

Storm 2

  • 40% chance that between 1-2 B.R.U.T.Es will spawn

Storm 3

  • 40% chance that between 1-2 B.R.U.T.Es will spawn

Storm 4

  • 10% chance that 1 B.R.U.T.E will spawn

Storm 5

  • 3% chance that 1 B.R.U.T.E will spawn


While this is a step in the right direction, the mechs are overpowered and ruin the balance of the game and one can only imagine the stress it's putting on professional players.


Hopefully, Epic Games creates a playlist allowing people to play with a B.R.U.T.E. and allows everyone else to play the game in a normal manner.
