It has been some time since Fortnite has received a consistent update with new content. The devs from Epic games have come up with update 9.40 which can be downloaded on consoles, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile.
The update brings new content in the form of varied shotguns, the creation of a giant robot and more. We suspect that the giant robot will be a feature that will star in the event that will mark the transition between season 9 and 10.
Fortnite New Shotguns
These weapons are popular but complicated to utilize in Fortnite because they vary wildly in their efficiency. The devs are constantly tinkering with their stats to try to optimize them. When players have multiple shotguns in their inventory, that’s when things get hairy.
The tactical shotgun has gotten some attention from the devs as well. It has received a couple of new versions in the Epic and Legendary classes. These can be found in floor loot, chests, loot carriers, supply drops, and even vending machines.
The maximum damage for the Tactical Shotgun is 83/87. It is capable of firing 1.5 shots per second and has a magazine of 8 shells. A headshot performed with the Tactical Shotgun multiplies its damage by 2.25.
Weapons are constantly appearing and disappearing into the vault. As well as being nerfed and powered up. One nerfing example would be the Combat Shotgun that has received lower stats overall. The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle has returned but the suppressed variant has gone away.
Fortnite Giant Robot
Well, the thing is just sitting there, not doing anything at the moment. But work at the Pressure Plant continues as the robot is expected to have a monster battle or something similar. So, get ready Godzilla.
It’s also worth mentioning that the giant robot is a pink bear with a scar on its face. The designers probably chose this style to trick monsters into falling for how cute it is and lowering their guard.
The pink bear is equipped with a whole lot of firepower thought, as multiple missiles can be seen on its torso and shoulder plates. It also has a read head guard that looks like a vampire’s cape.
