Epic Games added B.R.U.T.E vehicle to the game along with Fortnite Season 10. However, Fortnite fans were not happy with its inclusion as they thought it was too OP for the game and disturbed the game balance. Epic Games nerfed B.R.U.T.E in the subsequent updates, but it did not appease the players.


Apart from nerfing B.R.U.T.E, Epic Games has also vaulted a few weapons in the update V10.20.2. The weapons that have been vaulted in the hotfix include Combat Shotgun, Drum Shotgun, and Proximity Launcher. The update also brought back the ‘Suppressed Assault Rifle’ in Epic and Legendary variants.


Apart from weapons, Fortnite Season 10 has brought back many fan-favorite locations including Retail Row, Dusty Depot and Factories. Rift Beacons have been an important element of Fortnite Season 10. Whenever a ‘Rift Beacon’ got activated in Season 10, it has brought significant map changes to the game.

Now the activated Rift Beacons at Paradise Palms and Polar Peak have once again brought some map changes to the game. We have a new location called Moisty Palms, and Greasy Grove has also returned. In the Swampy Moisty Palms, players can disguise themselves as props. Have a look at the video below.

The new v10.30 update has also added a mode called Knock Town, which is solo mode and respawning is enabled under this mode. Knock Town was a top 3 contender for the LTM Creator Contest. An official description of Fortntie Knock Town Mode reads the following :

Use the grappler to jump around and dodge shots as you one-tap enemies in the air with the Flint-Knock Pistol. The player with the most eliminations at the end of the match wins!
