CouRage goes berserk after dying to BRUTEs in Fortnite

Twitch streamer and 100 Thieves owner Jack ‘Fortnite players who have an issue with the game’s new BRUTE Mechs.

The BRUTE was introduced with Fortnite’s v10.00 patch on August 1 and while it may be entertaining for some players, streamers and pro Fortnite players have been raging against how over powered the new vehicle is.

Epic Games responded with a statement on the mech backlash on August 15 and told everyone the BRUTE’s were here to stay for the foreseeable future.

CouRage/TwitchThis picture says it all, really.

What happened to CouRage?

During a Twitch Rivals match with fellow streamer Tim TimTheTatman Betar, CouRage had several BRUTEs attack his team’s build at once – ending the way most mech vs. non-mech fights seem to.

The streamers’ defenses were destroyed in a matter of seconds and CouRage was knocked out soon after, which threw him off on a tirade against the vehicle.

“F**k the meeeeccchhhsss,” CouRage raged with some xQc-worthy desk smashes. “Why the f**k are they a f**king thing dude? ”

“They’re so f**king stupid dude,” Tim replied. “Why did they just blow up that one building we were in dude?”

It’s the same complaint almost everyone has about the BRUTE’s – unless you have one as well, it’s a serious challenge to take out one of the OP machines, let alone three.

Is the BRUTE driving Fortnite players away?

CouRage’s latest encounter with the BRUTE seems to have been a breaking point, with the streamer telling Tim he was “done” with the game.

“I’m not playing anymore bro, I’m off this game, I’m sorry Tim, I’m not playing anymore today,” CouRage told his partner. “I love this game so much, and how incompetent is this decision dude? I’m off this game – I can’t play it.”

“We were literally hiding in the building with no real builds around us HOPING the mech would just pass over us,” said Tim, who obviously isn’t a fan of the BRUTEs either, said on Twitter. “Sad that we have to play that way right now…”

So even though Epic Games have basically told Fortnite players to accept the BRUTEs into their lives, that doesn’t mean anyone is really happy about it. Besides people who manage to get the mechs, of course.

YouTube star Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson has given away another massive prize worth $10,000 to one random player in his latest Minecraft survival challenge.

Mr Beast is one of the biggest content creators on YouTube and is well known for his generosity, giving hundreds of thousands of dollars away to strangers in some of his past uploads.

During his latest video on his gaming channel, Mr Beast Gaming, the YouTuber revealed that he would be hosting a bizarre Minecraft challenge with a whopping $10,000 Subway gift card up for grabs.

Mr Beast has hosted plenty of unique challenge videos on his YouTube channel.

In one of his most ridiculous challenges yet, Mr Beast explained that this survival challenge would have plenty of interesting twists and turns before the winner was decided.

While it appeared to start off as a regular Minecraft ‘Hunger Games’ match, Mr Beast did not tell those participating that, instead of the border closing in on them from all sides, lava would begin to fill the map from down below.

This secret change seemed to catch plenty of players off-guard, after many of them immediately trekked down to the mines, in an attempt to gear up with diamond armor and equipment.

Mr Beast, who was spectating all of the action from above, would also spice things up by dropping rare pieces of equipment in front of a group to incentivize more fights.

In another twist, the YouTuber shared that the final player standing would not win anything, and that the full $10,000 Subway gift card would go to the person in 2nd place instead.

The final stage of the challenge was extremely close, with the last few players all falling into the lava at the exact same time. It was AltirixGaming though, the one who managed to claim the $10,000 prize.

Mr Beast has hosted other unique challenges on the sandbox title, such as his recent video where he gathered more players for an epic $50,000 Minecraft building competition.
