Season 9 is brand new so we are getting a brand new assault rifle with the Fortnite Battle Royale update v9.01 tomorrow.
The Tactical Assault Rifle was leaked all the way back when the Season 8 just started and teased on the in-game news feed. By no means, this assault rifle is a traditional AR. It will possibly use light ammo and therefore falling somewhere between an SMG and a regular AR.
The description of the Tactical Assault Rifle reads “This robust and precise assault rifle is the ideal option for tight quarters.” Since this weapon is labeled as an ideal option for tight quarters, we definitely can say that it is an AR looking SMG although we are going to call it Tactical Assault Rifle. The update v9.01 is going to be the first update that Season 9 is getting so we are it will be curious to see what else the Fortnite community will be getting other than this new weapon and if there will be any special LTM’s added to the game.
Also, there are rumors that there will be John Wick special event but these are all rumors at this point but since the movie is going to be out in just 4 days, if any John Wick special events will take place, it will probably happen with this update. Stay tuned to never miss out any major Fortnite updates!
