v10.0 Update, and since then fans have been crying out for their removal, or at least a nerf to make them less powerful. 

Now, FaZe Clan star NICKMERCS has come up with his own ideas about what happens at Epic HQ, and the thought process that went into them creating and including the giant robots in the game in the first place.

BRUTES have been a contreversial addition to Fortnite.

“Chat, are you ready for my question?” the 29-year-old asked his audience in a clip posted to Reddit. “Do you think – because you know how they like to do game-changing updates before a tournament – they get real corny, do you think because the World Cup is over, they just snapped?”

In the bag is everything that ever got brought to the table and got declined, because they knew we would (be in) uproar. I have a feeling that this season they’re just going to dump the bag on us.”

The Twitch star then put on the performance of a lifetime, pretending to be one of the head developers at the studio: “‘Henry, remember that robot thing you made? Let’s get it in the game. Make it duo bro, one guy steers, the other guy shoots. Badabing, badaboom,’ and now we’re just moving bro.”

While issues continue to creep up with the BRUTES, including an exploit that lets them travel across the island at super speed, it appears Epic are listening to the complaints from their fanbase and may nerf the mechanical monstrosities in the near future.

When this could happen remains unclear, but the developers confirmed that they are working to fix movement-related bugs, and that they are “evaluating the BRUTE and how it performs across all modes and skill levels.”


When is Halo coming to Fortnite? Skin release date, Winterfest, more

A Fortnite leaker has hinted at when the Halo skin and limited-time mode should be released, but the exact day is still slightly shrouded in mystery. 

Crossovers in Fortnite have been great for fans who want to combine two of their favorite things. In the past, we’ve seen everything from Batman to Stranger Things to a full-blown Marvel-themed season. 

In Chapter 2, Season 5, two more crossovers have joined the battle royale party. The Mandalorian from Star Wars is one of the battle pass skins, while Kratos from God of War has also released as a part of a cosmetics bundle. 

Leaks have suggested that more and more crossovers are coming, with Halo seemingly being the next one to arrive – bringing a Master Chief skin, as well as a few other cosmetics too.

Mando and The Child are in Fortnite Season 5.

Leaks have also claimed that there will be a Halo-themed, Red vs Blue limited-time mode – somewhat similar to the Marvel Endgame LTM where players were either part of the Avengers or Thanos’ army of minions. 

With Kratos getting his moment in the spotlight as of now, fans are desperate to know when Master Chief and the Halo crossover will take his place. 

Well, according to Fortnite leaker FNBRUnreleased, the Halo crossover is set to happen when the V15.10 update is released. As of writing, there is no concrete date for that, but it shouldn’t be too far away either.

When is Fortnite’s v15.10 update and Winterfest?

The V15.10 update would also, likely, be the patch to bring in the Winterfest celebrations back to Fortnite, so, we’d probably see some map changes too with more snow on the map. 

Last year, Winterfest started on December 18, which was a Wednesday. If Epic Games opt for a similar date this year, we could maybe see it around December 16-17, as they fall on a Wednesday and Thursday.

Ultimately, that is up to Epic, and we’ll just have to wait until they release an update, but hopefully, it won’t be too far away.
