Epic Games has released a new software update for Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, changes made to the free-to-play battle royale game seeing it now on version 9.01.

The headline addition is the new Tactical Assault Rifle, which the developer explains is a “robust and precise assault rifle” that will be “the ideal option for tight quarters.”

There have also been changes to the new Slipstream, which will now no longer block buildings, will see players flying in them destroy any player built objects that they collide with, and, after storm phase five, will now see them be disabled.
