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

Published

on

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!

SypherPK showcases the best hero ability in Fortnite Season 4

SypherPK has crowned Fortnite Season 4’s best Mythic hero ability: Sorm’s Whirlwind Blast

Published

on

Fortnite Season 4 is, in many ways, a return to form for Fortnite. We’re having a lot more lighthearted fun than we had over the course of the past couple of seasons. On top of that, with the spray weapons nerfed or gone, the competitive meta is also more entertaining to watch and play.

Hero abilities are helping to keep the game fresh, as well, and offering several different playstyles that weren’t there during the first portion of Chapter 2. Instead of ramped-up versions of existing weapons, the Season 4 Mythic items are entirely new.

Obviously, some Mythic abilities are more powerful than others. For instance, Silver Surfer’s Re-Deploy ability has gotten a lot of attention in competitive modes, while Groot’s Baller has largely been left behind.

One ability seems to stand above the rest, however – at least when it comes to the Core Fortnite game modes. Storm’s Mythic Whirlwind Blast ability might be the most powerful one that Epic have added.

During a recent stream, SypherPK noticed something that a lot of players hadn’t. He shot his Doctor Doom energy orb at a player, only to have it come flying back at him. As it turns out, Storm’s ability reflects projectiles.

When you add this to the fact that you can avoid fall damage, launch players to their death, and reflect damage from incoming cars, it’s an easy decision when you have to choose one Mythic item to carry.

SypherPK released a video that shows all of the uses for Storm’s Mythic ability, including the most popular and effective one: launching players to their death. You can also reflect all of the other offensive hero abilities in Fortnite – save for Iron Man’s Unibeam.

Hopefully, this item stays out of competitive Fortnite. If not, then we can be sure of what the next “Kit’s Shockwave Launcher” will be during the Season 4 FNCS. Keep your head on a swivel if you run into a player using this ability in-game.

Leak

Leaked Fortnite weapon is a cross between a Minigun & Grenade Launcher

This leaked Fortnite weapon is scary…

Published

on

The Fortnite community tends to be split when it comes to explosive weapons. Some enjoy the ability to break down any structure in the game, while others prefer a rocket-free experience when cranking 90’s for high-ground.

We’ve seen all kinds of explosive weapons come and go from Fortnite. We’ve had the Quad Launcher, Grenade Launcher, Proximity Launcher, regular RPG, Pumpkin Launcher, and several others. Only a couple of them have remained in the loot pool for more than a season.

According to Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e_, it looks like the latest explosive weapon is on the horizon. We’ve only seen some statistics and mesh image of the item, but that’s enough for us to be intimidated as to the destruction it could cause.

Mang0e_ described the weapon as a “cross between a Grenade Launcher and a Minigun.” If that doesn’t send a chill up your spine, we don’t know what will. These are two of the most powerful weapons that Fortnite has ever seen. Now, we’re combining them?

Of course, this is only preliminary information and we have no idea if this item will ever even come to Fortnite. The initial impression could be way off as well, so it’s no time to panic.

After all, we saw Machine Pistols leaked last year and they still haven’t entered the game. Just recently, we got the first piece of concrete news on the item since last November. This is all to say that it could be a long time before this strange “heavy weapon” comes to Fortnite – if it ever does.

We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about the weapon, but it could be a while. Epic likely won’t release the next Fortnite update for at least a week or two, and we don’t expect to see this weapon when it does come out. In the meantime, make sure to follow us on Twitter, @FortniteINTEL, to be the first to know all of the breaking Fortnite news.

Fortnite Mythic weapon leak: ‘Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols’

Fortnite leaks reveal that Mystique is finally getting a Mythic item.

Published

on

Fortnite Season 4 is all about the hero abilities. We’ve seen an ability for nearly every hero in the game along with some for heroes that haven’t even been released, such as Black Panther and Venom.

The only Battle Pass hero who hasn’t received a Mythic ability is, strangely, Mystique. To be fair, it might be a bit difficult for Epic to come up with one. Her superpower, after all, revolves around shapeshifting into other people. We can use this as a built-in Mystique emote, but it doesn’t work as a standalone in-game mechanic.

Well, it seems like Mystique’s mythic item is in development. That’s right: reports have it that we’re getting an item rather than an ability. Fortnite data miner, @Mang0e, released his findings: Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols.

You probably don’t remember this weapon model – it’s not everyone’s job to follow all of these Fortnite leaks – but this Machine Pistol was leaked over a year ago. After several updates, Epic adjusted the statistics and rarities of the unreleased weapon.

Still, even after the weapon was updated, Epic kept it out of the game for almost a year. It seems like we may finally see a version of this weapon enter Fortnite in Season 4.

We still have a lot of unanswered questions about this weapon. Most likely, we’ll be able to get our hands on it through the drones located at the Quinjet landing sights. This has been the most common place to grab Mythic hero abilities. Of course, we don’t know this for sure.

Will the third leak be the charm for the Machine Pistol, AKA Mystique’s Dual Auto Pistols? Only time will tell. We’ll keep you posted when we learn more about this weapon.
