Bugs like the Heavy Shotgun not shooting through water have also been fixed.
With Season X introducing the most action in Fortnite yet, it’s interesting to note how Epic Games is changing the overall mobility possible in Battle Royale. In its recent patch notes, it revealed that the Baller was being vaulted. The same goes for the Quad-Crasher and Glider Redeploy.
Epic Games noted in the patch notes, “Over time, we have added many mobility options, both itemized and map-based. We feel that Season X is better experienced with a reduction in mobility. As with all changes, we’ll keep a close eye on how this affects the player experience.” There is a giant two-player mech called the B.R.U.T.E. to pilot so it’s not like the selection of vehicles is too barren.
In the patch notes, we actually learned more about how the B.R.U.T.E. works. Each player has a separate set of possible functions – the pilot is capable of dashing, jumping and stomping while the passenger can use a shotgun and missile launcher. There’s also an Overshield function which will consume 200 of any Material to generate an overshield for the B.R.U.T.E. This will last for five seconds so use it in a punch.
