Tfue claims he's "about to uninstall" Fortnite after BRUTE mech suit rage

Fortnite star Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney was enraged so much by the brand new BRUTE mech suits that he claimed he is “about to uninstall” the battle royale title.

After weeks of waiting and rampant speculation, fans finally got their hands on Season X on August 1, as Epic Games embarked on one of the biggest changes in the game’s history. Aside from classic map changes and new weapons, the developers introduced the BRUTE vehicle –  a Mech with missiles, a shotgun, and 1000 health points – in the V10.00 update.

Fortnite players, professional and casual alike, have already made their opinions known about the new Mech – and they’re not particularly happy about it either. It’s even prompted Tfue to consider if he wants to carry on playing the battle royale – which takes some doing. 

Epic GamesThe brand new BRUTE mech has caused some controversy within the Fortnite community.

During his August 2 stream, the former FaZe Clan star had been dabbling in matches alongside duo partner Dennis ‘cloak’ Lepore and fellow streamer Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo, and searching for victory royales.

The trio seemed on the ropes in one game, with DrLupo being handed an elimination before they reached a top-five situation – and encountered a BRUTE. Tfue rained down bullets on the Mech, hoping to see it blow up – yet, it quickly turned its power on him 

“Oh my God,” moaned Tfue, after knocked out by the all-new BRUTE. “This game is so bad, bro. I’m about to just uninstall.” 

While he couldn’t help but rage when the Mech ruined him, Tfue also saw the funny side of things when Cloak was left reeling by one. 

The Fortnite star caught a glimpse of his duo partner doing battle with a BRUTE at Dusty Depot, before the vehicle destroyed part of the area with ease. While Cloak raged, seemingly slamming his desk, Tfue was left giggling uncontrollably while trying to speak. 

Regardless of finding it funny, it’s clear that players are not fans of these Mechs and will try their hand at forcing Epic to make a change, like how they did with a Infinity Sword, which was eventually removed after backlash.

Whether Epic listens  or not remains to be seen, but, considering the BRUTE played a big role in the pre-season X teasers, it is probably here to stay.

Where to find Fortnite Iron Man jetpacks

After many long months, the fan-favorite jetpack has finally been re-added to Fortnite. This time however it’s straight from Iron Man, due to the special Marvel-themed season. Here’s a simple guide for how you can get your hands on the item.

One of the more interesting and least-hated items added to Fortnite since its launch is the jetpack. After being available in normal modes for a while, the item quickly became a fan-favorite, and getting one was pretty much required if you wanted to stand a chance in the final couple circles.

Epic Games decided to remove the item back in 2018 and instead, limited it to a number of different LTMs. Now, it seems like the developer has at least temporarily reversed course, as the item is now spawning in the base game again with a Marvel-themed twist.

The new jetpack operates exactly the same as the old item that was removed from Fortnite a while ago.

What is the Iron Man jetpack?

From everything we’ve seen, it appears as if the Iron Man jetpack operates basically the same way the older jetpack did back in 2018, and that this new item is basically just a simple cosmetic re-skin.

The jetpack takes the slot of one of your items on the bottom right-hand side of the screen. If you want to use it though, you don’t have to have the item selected. All you need to do is jump and then hold down the jump button in order to raise yourself into the air, allowing you to use your weapons. Operation, as expected, is fairly simple.

Where can I find the Iron Man jetpack?

Apparently, the only place to find the Iron Man jetpack is as floor loot appearing randomly around the map for the moment. There doesn’t appear to be any specific, sure-fire, place to find it, so you’ll just have to keep looking until it pops up.

The item also doesn’t seem to show up from chests, which means it’s even harder to find than some weapons and other items. Of course, this could all change as time goes on.

It’s currently unknown how long the item will be in the game for, although logic would dictate that the longest it would be available would be the end of the current season given its Marvel theme.
