Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf has gone on to criticize Epic Games for adding the “game-breaking” BRUTE mech into Fortnite Battle Royale that has altered the game he has grown to love.
16-year-old Pennsylvania native Bugha walked away from the Fortnite World Cup Solo tournament with the Battle Bus Cup and a life-changing $3 million.
The teenager was not only able to solidify himself as the best Fortnite Battle Royale solo player, but he also stamped himself in the esports history books as the top competitive earner in 2019 according to EsportsEarnings.
Bugha’s opinion on Fortnite certainly holds weight since he won the World Cup Solo event, and now he has some words for Epic Games since they added BRUTE mechs into the game with update v10.00.
While he was streaming on August 7, he encountered a BRUTE with his trio and had some words to say directly to Epic Games.
Will Epic vault the BRUTE?
The World Cup Solo champ was playing Trios with Ghost Gaming’s Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller and FaZe Clan’s Daniel ‘Dubs’ Walsh when they encountered an enemy BRUTE.
As the Trio tried to defend against the weaponized vehicle, their builds were almost immediately destroyed which sent Bugha into a frustrated venting session.
“Oh my God! I’m never playing this game again!” The teenage champion continued with, “Epic Games, remove them now.”
Bugha then changed his venting to directly address Epic Games: “I said, I know you are watching my stream. Remove them!”
While he was clearly frustrated at the current state of Fortnite, he continued on with his stream.
Fortnite community outraged by BRUTEs
Bugha isn’t the only notable Fortnite pro or personality that is upset with Epic’s addition of BRUTEs into battle royale.
A fan-made graph shows that Epic’s v10.00 content update has an approval rating of around 30%, which would make it the least-liked update since Season 8.
While we do not know if Epic plans to nerf or vault the BRUTE mech, there have been a few hints pointing towards a positive step forward.
Do you agree with the Solo champs opinion that Epic needs to remove BRUTEs from Fortnite Battle Royale?
