Fortnite Astro Assassin Skin Guide – Fortnite Patch 9.40 Leaks

It’s been nearly an entire month since the last Fortnite patch went live. In that time we’ve seen a slow trickle of content including the 14 Days of Summer event. Now, the Fortnite 9.40 patch notes are out and details are actually surprisingly slim. Luckily, we’ve been able to datamine the patch and find some of the stuff Epic has hidden away for another day. This is our look at the Fortnite Astro Assassin skin.

We do not know the rarity of the Fortnite Astro Assassin skin. Though our datamining system shows it as an uncommon rarity skin which means it’ll set you back 800 V-Bucks. That’s approximately $8 dollars in real world, physical, human cash.

We don’t know if it comes with a backpack or will appear alongside a glider or pickaxe. We suspect the backpack below might be related, however.

Out of this atmosphere.

And that’s everything we know about the Fortnite Astro Assassin skin! Looking for more details from the Fortnite 9.40 patch?

Fortnite Patch 9.40 Patch Notes

The Fortnite 9.40 patch notes have arrived! It’s the first patch in almost a month with Epic Games recent break. Highlights include the new Tactical Shotgun, some vault changes, and some new Creative mode content that has the fan favorite Kevin’s Floating Island.

We’ve included a small sample of the biggest changes to the Battle Royale game mode below. Check out the full patch notes here!


  • New Epic and Legendary Tactical Shotgun.
    • 83 / 87 maximum damage.
    • 1.5 shots per second.
    • Holds 8 shells.
    • Headshot multiplier of 2.25.
    • Available from Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Drops, Loot Carriers, and Vending Machines.
  • Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle now has reduced zoom while scoped.
    • This is a Quality of Life change to help improve the usability and feel of this weapon.
  • Combat Shotgun changes
    • Reduced Headshot multiplier from 1.7 to 1.5.
    • Reduced the long range effectiveness of the Combat Shotgun
      • Reduced the falloff curve ranges from:

        • 9.77 tiles to 6.84 tiles.
        • 19.53 tiles to 11.72 tiles.

    • Suppressed Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
      • Epic and Legendary variants.
  • Unvaulted
    • Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
