Check Mini Map for Spawn Location
The BRUTEs will show up in the mini map as soon as they spawn in. You can use this to track their location and if they're in use. The BRUTE icon will disappear if it's being piloted already.
2 BRUTEs Spawn Every Match
There will always be 2 BRUTEs that will spawn in a match on most game modes. In Team Rumble, each side will have a BRUTE Spawn.
BRUTE Gameplay Tips
You Can Be Exposed To Enemy Fire
Do not think that you are invincible when piloting this mech. If the shield on the BRUTE's head is down, you are exposed to the enemy's fire. Make sure to play aggressively only when the shield is up to protect yourself!
One Player Can Control The BRUTE
Despite being a 2-player vehicle. One player will be able to control the BRUTE alone. However, they still need to switch between being the pilot and the gunner. They cannot move and shoot at the same time.
Targeting Laser Cues Missile Targets
A new feature introduced in v10.10 Patch Update, BRUTEs will now have a Targeting Laser that will pinpoint who the missiles are being aimed at. This will work even if the target is behind structures.Check Out the v10.10 Patch Update Here
