Fortnite v9.01 Patch Notes: What’s new in update


Fortnite’s most recent fix has arrived, and with it comes the second new weapon of the period in about fourteen days, the John Wick-themed Tac Assault Rifle which looks like one he utilizes in the motion pictures, yet additionally a couple of shocks. What’s coming up for this fix? A considerable amount, really.

Drum Gun Nerf

The Drum Gun has been staggeringly prevailing as far back as fans cast a ballot to bring it once again from the vault toward the finish of last season. It has just observed its accessibility be diminished, yet that wasn’t sufficient, so we’re going full nerf this time around, and it’s a really not too bad one.

Harm has gone from 26/27 to 22/23, making it successful, yet maybe not so widespread as it was beforehand, which had been a typical grievance among players. We’ll perceive how this affects the meta since the change is live.

Minimized SMG Vaulted

This one was somewhat of amazement, however, Epic says that since the Drum Gun left the vault and the Tac Assault Rifle is arriving, they needed less fast discharge weapons on the guide, so the minimized SMG is made a beeline for the vault. Until further notice at any rate.

Tac Assault Rifle

This just landed in the diversion at the beginning of today so it’s too soon to tell how great it is. Yet, we do have all its authority details now:

Uncommon, Epic, Legendary

Completely Automatic

30 Round Magazine

Arrangements 22/23/24 harm

Headshot Multiplier of 1.75x

This weapon has a tight spread around other people however is less powerful at long range when contrasted with other Assault Rifles.

Slipstream Changes

You would now be able to incorporate with slipstreams, yet players who slam into structures in slipstreams will impact through them. Appears to be reasonable. Additionally, slipstreams are currently incapacitated after stage 5 of the tempest since individuals obviously continued getting manoeuvred into the tempest out of the blue by them.

Furthermore, that is it, truly. Not an enormous fix but rather the Drum Gun nerf is a major ordeal possibly, and adding another weapon to the blend dependably can possibly shake things up a considerable amount. This fix made ready for the John Wick LTM and deals occasion which should commence tomorrow at reset, or potentially later around evening time for the store things.

Head out there and evaluate a portion of the progressions for yourself and perceive how things have moved. I’m simply going to set up my wallet for when the amazing John Wick skin drops.
