The BRUTE mechs have been one of the more controversial additions to Fortnite Battle Royale with many fans claiming the armored suit was too overpowered to be allowed in competitive play.
Shortly after a god-mode glitch including the BRUTE allowed players to become invincible during their battle royale game was shared, FaZe Clan’s Fortnite star, Mongraal uncovered yet another exploit with the mech suit.
The start of Fortnite's Season 10 has seen many changes to the map such as the new Zombie Spawners near retail row which drops legendary loot for players who destroy them.
However, the FaZe pro’s trio which included benjyfishy and mitr0 uncovered a way to get the loot instantly during the Trio’s Cash Cup by simply Jumping and stomping near the spawner while in the mech suit.
“Oh, I know how to do it! I know how to do it!” Shouted Mongraal, as he watched all of the much-needed legendary loot drop from the spawner for himself and his teammates.
The BRUTE exploit saw the trio come out of Retail Row with over 13 launchpads between them as well as some other legendary loot, such as RPG’s, which set them up with a great advantage going into the late game.
Despite failing to close out the game with a victory royale many viewers complained about how much of an advantage it would give players in a tournament setting, making the popular battle royale less competitive than it was.
Epic Games are likely to fix this exploit going forward, however, many fans of the game are still hoping for the complete removal of the controversial mech suit from active play.
