Fortnite Boycott Forces Epic Into a BRUTE-al Corner

Fan-made analysis of Fortnite Reddit suggests v10.00 content update is the worst yet

When Season X kicked off last week, Epic Video games delivered on that promise, bringing back some well-loved locations, in addition to introducing brand new merchandise: The B.R.U.T.E. mech. We are also working to fix movement-related bugs with the address exploits.

Since they've been in the battle royale shooter, they are making gamers frustrated and angry.

The mechs are designed for as much as two players.

Facebook announces that it will launch a "News" tab this fall
Facebook is looking to get into the news business, and that could be good news for some outlets, according to a published report . Following the WSJ report , Facebook confirmed to CNBCthat it was indeed launching a new, dedicated news tab this fall.

Those on the competitive end of the player spectrum have been particularly vocal with several pushes to boycott Fortnite in favor of Apex Legends' upcoming solo mode to prompt Epic into action.

The active Fortnite player base regards the mechs as vastly over-powered and with good reason. Some people who claim to live in countries next to Bahrain, like Jordan and Kuwait, are saying they're still getting ping values as high as 200 when testing their connection to the reported Bahrain server.

Despite his best efforts, the mech suit continued to rain down rockets on his head, eventually eliminating the Sentinels pro player from the game by stomping on him, causing Bugha to immediately exit the lobby in a fit of rage. A B.R.U.T.E. has 1,000 health which is roughly five times the maximum health and shield of regular players - it also has incredible movement abilities, which can close gaps of hundreds of in-game meters in a few seconds. In just 5 days of its arrival, players are finding the B.R.U.T.E mech as requiring no skill at all and just an easy way to get kills and victory royales. All they have to do is reduce the damage they deal.
