The B.R.U.T.E is a ground vehicle in Battle Royale. It is a giant mech suit that can be mounted by 2 players at a time. The driver has a dash, stomp and superjump attack that is capable of harvesting materials as well. Additionally, the passenger seat has a shotgun and missile attack while being shielded by a forcefield. The B.R.U.T.E can also use player materials to create a overshield that protects the mech. It additionally has a self-destruct function, which causes it to explode after 5 seconds and damage any nearby players for 100.

Alongside the X-4 Stormwing, it is one of the most controversial additions to Battle Royale.

What's New?

  • B.R.U.T.E
