Yes, Epic is aware that itsgiant mechs are souringFortnite— and it already has a fix, at least for competitive audiences. The developers have dramaticallyreducedthe spawn rates for B.R.U.T.E. machines in Arena and Tournament playlists, with the odds becoming increasingly slim each time the Storm (aka the circle) closes in. Where it was guaranteed that two to four mechs would be available at the start of the match, there’s now a 21.5 percent chance that one to three will appear. Successive circles never have more than a 44 percent chance of spawning mechs, and the rate plunges from 50 percent to 10 percent by the fourth Storm.
