Vaulted Patch 11.00

The B.R.U.T.E was 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 super jump attack. 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 an 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.

It is one of the most controversial items in Battle Royale, alongside the X-4 Stormwing. It has the potential of being vaulted soon.

As of right now, there is a virus that is causing the B.R.U.T.E to explode once landed. It is unknown if the virus will get fixed. They still work normally in creative when spawned by a B.R.U.T.E Spawner pad.

As of the Chapter 2 Season 1 update, the B.R.U.T.E was vaulted in all game modes, being only available in Creative. It was vaulted due to the theme and is one of the most overpowered items in the history of Battle Royale.
