Fortnite season 10: Rift beacon activates in Neo Tilted and mechs storm the map – CNET
Fortnite season 10, or season X, is live. The new season doesn't have any of the big sweeping changes found in previous seasons, but the island will fluctuate throughout the next 12 weeks until the start of season 11, which could be sometime in October.
On Monday, players saw something in Neo Tilted. A Rift Beacon activated creating a rift above the location.
Nothing has happened yet, but rifts could be part of the season 10 storyline. Data miners already discovered a new version of Neo Tilted called Tilted Town, which could change due to the rift.
Season X Rundown
The biggest change in Fortnite season 10 is the two-player mech called B.R.U.T.E. The robot acts as a vehicle, with one player controlling its movement while the other can use its weapons, which include a shotgun and a missile launcher. Players can also use the mech's Overshield ability, which will consume 200 materials of any type.
Fortnite players took to the game's subreddit to complain about the overpowered mech added to the game. Several threads included memes of how overpowered the B.R.U.T.E. is. One thread has a fake tweet from Epic saying it'll make changes to the mech to make it balanced. One user posted a video of himself winning a match with the B.R.U.T.E., saying he didn't deserve the Victory Royale. Even Fortnite World Cup champion Kyle "Bugha" Giersdorf had trouble with the mech in a match.
The Fortnite map for season 10 didn't change, which is odd for the start of a new season. In the v10.0 patch notes, Epic said Rift Zones will make locations from the past reappear. One data miner found assets in the update that show Neo Tilted may change to an Old West theme called Tilted Town.
As teased by Epic during the Fortnite World Cup, Dusty Depot is now back on the island. There was also one addition to the map, although it's above the island and not on it. The meteor from the season 3 -ending event that destroyed Dusty Depot is in stasis above the impact point.
