GUIDE: How to effectively use the Fortnite Season X BRUTE mech suite



Fortnite Battle Royale Season X includes a player-operated mech suit that can be located around the Fortnite map. Here’s how to locate and use the B.R.U.T.E mech.

The tenth season of Fortnite has introduced the B.R.U.T.E mech suit that can be operated solo or with a partner.

If two players are in the suit then one person will be responsible for movement while the other has controlled the of mech’s weapons. One-manned B.R.U.T.E suits will be a bit more difficult to navigate as the operator will be responsible for moving the giant piece of machinery along with accurately laying down shots.

Players can harvest materials within the suit and have access to a new mechanic in Fortnite, ‘Overshield’.

If you are in the middle of a difficult battle while using the mech, then players can spend 200 of any material for a five-second shield over their character.

How do you find a B.R.U.T.E suit?

There will be two suits that randomly land around the Fortnite Battle Royale map, newly added with update v10.0.

Once they appear on the map, they will be marked with their own individual icons which are displayed below.

Two B.R.U.T.E suits will land per match.

Once players land in front of the suit, they will have to interact with the vehicle in order to hop on board. As soon as they do, players will be primed and ready for action.

Once players board the B.R.U.T.E, their chosen skin will appear on the mech.

It took us a few games in order to safely secure a suit due to tons of players fighting over them, but once we did it took a few games to adjust just like any other new vehicle added to the game.

How do you operate the B.R.U.T.E?

Solo players in the suit will have full control over the entire mech while duos will have to split duties.

The B.R.U.T.E suit has the ability to jump high in the air and slam down, similar to the action Thanos could take in the Avengers x Fortnite crossover. Hold down your regular jump button in order to charge it, then release to spring free.

Are two B.R.U.T.E’s enough for 100 players?

Players have access to two weapons with the mech – A shotgun, and rocket launcher.

Using the shotgun is pretty straight forward as you just aim and shoot. The B.R.U.T.E’s shotgun will hold 10 shells before it needs to be reloaded and deals a decent amount of damage with a maximum of 50 with a headshot multiplier of 1.5x.

In order to use the rocket launcher, players will need to hold down the “trigger” in order to load the weapon. Once they release the “trigger”, or when all ten missiles are loaded, all projectiles will go flying towards their target.

In a display of skill and power, Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier showed off this impressive play with the new B.R.U.T.E suit.

Tons of plays have already appeared on social media of players dominating with the weaponized mech suit, with some comparing it to the overpowered Infinity Blade.

Only time will tell if Epic Games will keep the B.R.U.T.E in Fortnite, but in the meantime, let’s go stomp on more enemies!


Fortnite split-screen: how to play with friends

Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable the setting.



Epic introduced the ability to play split-screen Fortnite back in Chapter 2 Season 1. Here’s how to enable it so you can play locally with a friend.

Fortnite has always had a focus on playing with friends, but that always meant you had to play online. Even if you were in the same house as your friend or family member, the two of you had to play on two separate devices.

This changed back in the v11.30 update in Chapter 2 Season 1. Epic introduced split screen capabilities on consoles for the first time. It wasn’t perfect when it first came out, but it’s since gotten a lot better.

How to use the Fortnite console split-screen feature

Initiating split-screen is simple. All you have to do is connect two controllers to your Xbox or PlayStation. Split-screen still isn’t available on mobile, PC, or Nintendo Switch. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Start Fortnite
  2. Connect a second controller to the console and turn it on
  3. Hit ‘Main Menu’
  4. Player 1 will need to invite Player 2 with their Epic account
  5. Player 2 will need to sign into their account
  6. Player 2 will join and split-screen will automatically initiate

You can even save another player’s information on another account on your console, making split-screen easier and quicker to complete.

The feature still isn’t perfect and doesn’t replace the feeling of playing online. You’ll only have access to half of your screen, so you’re going to miss a few things that normal players will see. Still, playing split-screen is far more preferable than switching off with your friend or family member game after game. Enjoy!

Fortnite Creative Mode could be getting a huge expansion

Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios, according to a recent leak.



Fortnite Creative Mode could bring a massive update to truly simulate end-game scenarios.

Creative Mode was one of the most innovative additions that Epic has made to Fortnite. You don’t even have to play the base game mode to enjoy Fortnite, anymore. You can play Search and Destroy, deathruns, Zone Wars, Trivia, boxfights, and a lot more.

Competitive Fortnite players have taken to Creative Mode the most. Zone Wars gives you a simulated end-game and boxfights let you practice the most important element of high-level competitive play.

Fortnite Creative beta

Over a year ago, way back in, Fortnite v12.10, files were added to the game that we assumed would bring a massive change to Creative Mode. According to the game files, Creative can now support up to 50 players.

A year after we first heard the news about an updated Creative Beta, we still have yet to see this in practice. Since it’s been so long, many players forgot that it was even on the horizon.

After the v15.50 update, however, data miners found some new files that relate to the Creative Mode expansion. According to them, Epic are testing a beta of Creative that should support 50 players.

Such a change would be a massive step for the game. You could truly play a mini-BR game with your friends if this change went through. YouTube creators and streamers could also manage private matches a lot easier, as there’s no chance of a code leak or an unwanted intruder.

The best part of this additional player count is the ability to truly simulate competitive end-game situations. Zone Wars is good practice for a lot of us, but not for those at the highest level.

Anyone who has ever watched a tournament knows what we’re talking about. The end-game in professional Fortnite matches routinely has 40+ players in the final few zones. It’s pure chaos, and a 50-player Zone Wars lobby will be able to capture this.

Of course, the expansion also opens the door to a ton of other possibilities including massive boxfight battles and more. Epic will be focusing on the Creative side of things for the future of Fortnite, and an increased player count is an excellent first step.

Fortnite leaked skins & cosmetics from v15.50 update



Fortnite v15.50 update leaked skins

Epic Games have rolled out their first update in a few weeks, with the arrival of Fortnite patch v15.50, and a number of skins and cosmetics have leaked as a result.

These weekly updates were never missed in times gone by, however Fortnite Chapter 2 has been a lot more inconsistent in that sense. Some weeks there is a huge update with map changes, new crossovers and challenges – while others will just make very minor bug changes.

You can always read about what to expect from the patch here on Fortnite Intel, and alongside those patch notes, let’s run through some of the game’s unreleased outfits.

Fortnite’s most recent crossover was with Street Fighter and Alien, but what’s next?

On March 2, once the downtime began, a number of leakers started looking into the game’s files to see what had changed. To their surprise, with just two weeks left in the season, not much had been tweaked in terms of content.

However, we do have some leaked skins and cosmetics to dig through – courtesy of Lucas7Yoshi and VastBlast.
