This question is pretty self-explanatory.
The way B.R.U.T.E. is spelled out implies it's an acronym, but so far the only answers I've found as to what it means have been joke answers; Beastly Robot Unfair Terror Error, for example.

Could anybody tell me what B.R.U.T.E. actually stands for?

It might not stand for anything at all, and just be named that way to look more robotic.

The Season X Blog, and the accompanying Patch Notes for the B.R.U.T.E's introduction don't expand the acronym, and those are the most likely places for such information to appear.


According to the Fortnite archive fandom's article on it, there's speculation that:

The B.R.U.T.E's name is inspired by several items' names in Save the World. - Fortnite Archive Fandom

As for what it actually stands for, I couldn't find anything other than memes either. I hope this information helps though.
