A new gun has been leaked in the v9.00 files, the Tactical Assault Rifle. You’ll find the stats of the weapon at the bottom of the article.
Epic Games vaulted a handful of items in today’s v9.00 update, two of which were assault rifles. The Suppressed Assault Rifle and Thermal Assault Rifle were both vaulted, and when Epic vault an item, it’s usually to make way for new weapons.
One of the promotional images for Fortnite Season 9 seemed to tease a new assault rifle as seen below.
Last season’s promotional images teased the release of several times including The Baller, Boom Bow, Buried Treasure and the Flint-Knock Pistol.

The stats may change when the gun is released, however Storm Shield One have displayed correct stats prior to weapons releasing in the past.
It’s likely we’ll see this gun added within the next week or two as some recently leaked John Wick challenges state players will need to deal damage with the gun.
