Does Fortnite OG Season Have B.R.U.T.E. Mechs?

At the time of writing, Fortnite OG Week 4 has just started. This is the period of time in the game when B.R.U.T.E. Mechs would have been added back in, if ever, because it covers Chapter 1 Season 9 and Season X. However, many leakers and content creators have confirmed that these Mechs aren’t in the game in its current state, and we’ve not seen them while playing either.

When Fortnite OG Season first started, leakers and dataminers found that Epic Games had updated the files for B.R.U.T.E. Mechs, indicating that they’d be used in a future week of the season. While they’re not in the game as of the start of Fortnite OG Week 4, they could be added in a hotfix over the following ten days as the game approaches the season finale, The Big Bang Event.

HypeX, a notable data miner in the Fortnite community, believed that Mechs could appear close to the end of the Fortnite OG Season, referring to it as the end of Chapter 1. These were found alongside the many other assets discovered ahead of the Fortnite O.G. Season, which launched on the morning of November 3, 2023.

The Fortnite OG Season is a huge throwback to many weapons, landmarks, items, and vehicles that haven’t been around since Chapter 1. Each week, several weapons, vehicles, items, and even landmarks will be swapped out with new ones, so expect a lot of changes throughout the Fortnite OG Season, even if it’s only set to last a month. After it concludes, it looks like Epic Games will shift over to Chapter 5, and a brand new adventure for Fortnite players.

Look for the fearsome B.R.U.T.E. Mech during the Fortnite OG Season. We’ll see if we can get any confirmation about them closer to the official release of the season. If they do come out, it looks like it’s closer to the final week, which feels fitting.
