Fortnite’s New “AirStrike” Update 9.3.0 Now Live 

Written By Tech Desk | Mumbai | Published:

Fortnite has now received the new “Air Strike” update aka Update 9.3.0 that introduces a canister blowing smoke that signals for new missiles from above. This update should now already be live globally. This is part of a new content update to Fortnite. 

In fact the air strike element calls for actual air strikes to happen. These also look unique in-game. Apart from this update, there is the night-time fighting that can be resorted to via silenced weapons.  

Then, there are other updates such as Classic Squads, Catch Squads, and Blitz Squads – all of which should enhance gameplay.
