The latest Fortnite patch, v.10.10, is so awful that loyal gamers are starting to rage-quit the monstrously popular battle royale game. | Source: Epic Games
By CCN Markets: Epic Games released the first post-mech controversy Fortnite patch, dubbed v10.10, and to say players are unhappy about it is an understatement. It may be Fortnite’s most underwhelming patch to date.
Chiefly, the update fails to nerf the BRUTE mech as clamored for by the community. If anything, the patch buffs the much-beleaguered vehicles by adding a mini-map alert that allows players to know exactly where to find them if left unattended for 15 seconds – heightening the chance of them being used.
Aside from failing to fix the mech problem, the patch features several changes that players are branding as a tipping point – and there’s a brewing sense it may time to move on.

Reddit user Surfboarder4 puts it even more eloquently:
Here are three of the worst offenders igniting gamer backlash.
In keeping with its habit of rejigging the map’s points of interest to further its grand environmental narrative arc, Epic has turned Retail Row into a consumerist hellhole teeming with zombies.
For the casual player, this might spice up the usual Fortnite formula by giving them a chance to gun down zombies and pick up some new loot.
