Fortnite Brute Mech Vehicles - Where to Find the Fortnite Mechs

Here's our complete guide to the new Fortnite mechs, also known as the special Brute mech vehicles.

With Season 10 now having launched in Fortnite Battle Royale, you can find new mechs all over the map. In this complete guide to the new Fortnite mechs, we'll be taking you through everything you need to know about the new vehicles, including how they work, where to find a Fortnite mech, and more.

Fortnite Brute Mechs

At first glance, you might think that the Brute mech can only be operated by a single player. However this isn't the case, as up to two players can fit into a single Brute mech. If one player is in the mech, then they control both the movement and firing functions with various weapons (more on that below). But if two people are in a Brute mech, then one person drives while another person uses the weapons.

If you're only able to move the Brute mech, then you've still got option for causing damage outside of weapons. The new Fortnite mechs actually have a dash feature, which can be used to cause damage to both players and structures. On top of this, you can also manually stomp down on the ground underneath you, as well as using the 'Super Jump' feature to launch yourselves high into the air, coming back down to destroy everything underneath you.

But if you're in control of the guns with the new Fortnite mechs, then you've got two weapons at your disposal. Firstly there's the new shotgun, which has a clip size of 10, base damage of 50, and a headshot multiplier damage of 1.5. Then there's the missile launcher, which can be used to fire up to 10 missiles once after the other, or all at the same time if you hold down the trigger.

In addition to all of this, there's a special shield ability. You'll note that while you're piloting the Brute mech, the head of the pilot pops up out of the top of the mech. As you can probably imagine, this is going to be a nice target for anyone lining you up with a sniper rifle.

Whenever the Brute mech crushes an object, you'll get a certain amount of the resource that you crushed. So for example if you crush a tree while in the mech, you'll obtain 100 wood. You can then spend 200 of any currency to create a brief shield encasing the pilot for 5 seconds total. Use this whenever you come under fire to protect the player piloting the mech.

Where to Find the Fortnite Mechs

But where can the new Fortnite mechs be found on the Battle Royale map? In the screenshot below of the new Fortnite Season 10 map, you'll note that we've circled the two locations of the Brute mechs in red. The locations of the Brute mechs are always shown on the map at the start of every match.

So, to find a Fortnite Brute mech for yourself, all you need to do is head to the specified location on the map. Note that although there are two locations on the screenshot above, we've experienced instances of there only being a single mech on the entire map before.

Well, it's sure to be a bloodbath in a brutal fight over the new mechs. You'll want to be extremely quick getting off the Battle Bus and down to the location(s) of any mechs, so you can be the first player to nab it.
