The new version of the B.R.U.T.E. is the same as the original apart from a new paintjob and some small gameplay changes;

  • Dashing now has a cooldown of 7 seconds instead of 5

The new B.R.U.T.E. Mechs will be available to activate through the in-game War Effort voting system which was introduced when Season 8 began. The vote has been estimated to go live in roughly 3-4 weeks and will require 1 billion Gold Bars to be donated in order to introduce the new B.R.U.T.E.

We'll keep you updated once the B.R.U.T.E. vote goes live in-game.
