Keeping up with the Jonesys: Weekly Fortnite recap

This week, we had a new patch that came with some significant leaks for future Fortnite content.

Let's take a look at everything you might have missed.

Leak suggests BRUTE will return

The most interesting and troubling news of the week is that Mechs - or the BRUTE - has returned to the game files.

These Mechs were some of the most hated vehicle in all of Fortnite, but they were bound to return at some point. We can only hope that they see some significant nerfs from their last interation.

Arena mode changes

In the most recent patch, Epic made some long-awaited changes to Arena Mode in Fortnite. 

These changes are pretty small, but they're a step in the right direction. You can now de-rank out of different levels, and Epic adjusted elimination rewards at the earlier stages.

Hopefully, this is just the first in a line of changes coming to Fortnite.

New Chili Chug Splash

The more signification addition to Fortnite in the new patch was the Chili Chug Splash. These are normal Chug Splashes that give players a speed boost and replaced the Chug Cannon in the Llama loot.

These are now the most powerful healing item in the game, but they took the place of a previous item that held the same role. It will be interesting to see how pro players use the new item in tournaments.
