It looks like Fortnite’s much-maligned mechs are finally on their way out. Last night, players started to notice that the vehicles – which are officially known as Brutes – have begun self-destructing the moment they arrive in the game. As you can see in the tweet further down this article (via Eurogamer), the Brute explodes the second it hits the floor. As should be apparent, that makes it basically impossible to actually pilot one, suggesting that Epic has disabled the vehicle – at least for now. Technically, there’s a lore-based reason for these explosions, as the mysterious Visitor appears to have infected the two-player mechs with something akin to a computer virus. Quite what he’s done to them to make them explode quite so violently isn’t clear, but I would imagine that the Fortnite player base isn’t particularly interested in the narrative specifics in this particular case. You see, the Brutes have been deeply unpopular since their arrival in the game at the beginning of the current season.
