The latest update to Fortnite added a summer sheen to the popular battle royale. Beaches are now cropping up around the map, and beloved NPCs have a summer makeover. One such example is Beach Brutus, a summer revamp of the well-known islander, with players being asked to converse with Beach Brutus as one of the game’s challenges. Here’s where to find Beach Brutus’ location in Fortnite.
Where is Fortnite Beach Brutus’ location?
Fitting in with the summer theme, you can find Beach Brutus at Believer Beach. It’s located in the northwest corner of the map, just to the left of Pleasant Park, and was introduced for the first time this month, in Chapter 2 Season 7 of Fortnite. Once you arrive, you’ll see him hanging around there on the shore, next to the trailer and two sun loungers.
In the past, Brutus used to appear at Dirty Docks. This was during Chapter 2 Season 5, though he first appeared in Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 2. We haven’t seen him since Season 5, and Epic Games re-added Brutus in the recent 17.10 update. As with all Fortnite NPCs, Beach Brutus will give out exclusive lines of dialogue when you interact with him. He’s also a quest-giver – and one of the quests is even tied to the UFO event currently going on.
It’s currently unclear whether Beach Brutus will play a larger role as the current Fortnite season continues. Leaked data from the Fortnite update files suggest that he may one day become a playable skin, but that isn’t official yet, and we’ll have to wait and see. If he does appear as a playable skin, rumours suggest he’ll cost around 1,700 V-Bucks. If it does happen, then it’ll be pretty cool to take out other enemies with Beach Brutus’ gold chains and tattoos.
In other news, a Sonic the Hedgehog expansion was added to Minecraft today, with over 20 skins, and a whole new world, for $7.99. The most recent episode of Loki also confirmed the beloved character’s bisexuality.
