Fortnite x Mayhem

Epic Games have teamed up with 2K Games to showcase Borderlands 3 in Fortnite with their newest event, Fortnite x Mayhem. The event includes Borderlands themed challenges with free rewards, Psycho and Claptrap cosmetics, and new gun skins!

Changes to Turbo Building

The changes to turbo building were huge this update, and lots of players are not happy about it.

Here is an article which was written up about the hatred for the update

The new ‘Shield Bubble’

Woo! Who doesn’t love a new item in Fortnite? The new Shield Bubble creates a large bubble that will block all projectiles and explosives for 30 seconds. You will still be able to run through it and deal damage inside the bubble. The shield has 400 hp, so make sure to shoot it down quickly to not prolong the fight.

B.R.U.T.E Changes

The newest patch included some changes to the B.R.U.T.E.

  • The B.R.U.T.E.’s map icon will remain visible to all players after players board one. The icon will follow the vehicle as it moves.
    • This is to increase awareness of a B.R.U.T.E.’s presence and location to all players in the match.
  • The B.R.U.T.E. changes below were implemented between August 22-23.
    • Decreased the maximum amount of rockets fired by the B.R.U.T.E. in a single charge from 10 to 6.
    • Decreased the rate at which the rockets are fired from the B.R.U.T.E. by 56%.
    • The B.R.U.T.E. no longer grants materials to the driver and passenger when stomping or dashing through the environment.
    • Returned the explosion radius of B.R.U.T.E. missiles back to their original range.
      • We had decreased the explosion radius by 42% in the August 22 hotfix. This change, in particular, felt like an overswing, making it too difficult for the B.R.U.T.E to hit targets with fewer rockets and mobility. So on August 23, we brought the damage radius back (in core modes) to where it was before August 22. We’re continuing to closely evaluate the B.R.U.T.E. changes to make sure they align with our goals.
        • As of v10.20, these changes are now also in Arena & Tournament playlists.
    • Increased the dash cooldown from 3 seconds to 5 seconds.
    • Decreased the velocity gained from boosting while in the air by 33%.
    • Adjusted the variability of spawn rates for storm phases 1, 2, and 3 in core modes.
      • Note: These adjustments do not affect the spawn rates in Arena and Tournament playlists. You can find those spawn rates in the v10.10 Patch Notes.
      • Storm phase 1
        • Increased the maximum number of B.R.U.T.E. spawns from 5 to 6.
