v10.0 update at the start of Season X, and immediately became an unpopular issue, with players complaining that they were far too powerful to be in the game.

Streamers like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff have all voiced their frustrations with the monstrous machines, and now the 16-year-old who became headline news thanks to his solo win in New York City has weighed in, and asked Epic Games for their help.

Epic GamesBugha’s patience with the BRUTE mechs has ran out.

During his August 7 stream, Bugha was playing trios with Timothy ‘Bizzle’ Miller and FaZe Clan’s Danny ‘Dubs’ Walsh when they came across an enemy in a BRUTE who immediately destroyed their builds.

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.

“Oh my God!” roared the Fortnite pro player. “I’m never playing this game again. Epic Games, remove them now. I said, I know you guys are watching my stream. Remove them!”

Despite his outburst, Bugha continued to play Fortnite, but it seems that the BRUTES are getting to him, even though he won $3 million playing the battle royale title back in July.

Epic Games have stated that they are evaluating the BRUTE’s place in the current landscape of the game, so there is hope that the developers may nerf them or remove them entirely, although many were left frustrated when the v10.0 Content Update made no changes to the mechs.

There’s no current timeline for any alterations to the BRUTES though, so Fortnite fans will seemingly have to put up with their overpowered antics for a little longer.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
