Fortnite Season X has been panned with most criticisms centered around the addition of the mech into the game.

Almost everyone expected Epic to nerf the mech in at least some way with the first update of Season X, so when it came and went without a nerf the reactions were to be expected.

Very few things in Fortnite have reached the level of near universal agreement like the mech has. Almost everyone agreed that the Infinity Blade was too strong and that siphon is a good thing, but other than that getting the whole community to agree on something was nearly impossible.

Then you bring in the mech which is not only strong but also ridden with glitches making it unpredictable and even better.

Here’s what the community thought of the mech prior to the content update:

That poll has 95,000 votes on it just to make sure the scope is clear. The casual and competitive communities all seem to be rallying against the vehicle, so it isn’t clear who Epic is trying to please at this point.

Best Reactions to the Mech in Fortnite

The absolute best reactions came from Reddit where they captured the feelings of the community as a whole.

The top post keeps it short and sweet:

See you guys in season 11! from r/FortniteCompetitive

Over on the casual side, it isn’t much better. In fact, they are upvoting a video that just destroys Epic’s devs to their top post:

The streamers all either haven’t reacted to the lack of a vault or are making their displeasure well known.

Did I mention the community was going off the rails?
It’s real bad out here
