The latest Fortnite update – v9.01 – arrives tomorrow at Battle Royale and will bring a new weapon: the Tactical Assault Rifle.
There has long been speculation about the arrival of this rifle, having appeared in the game menu and revealed by data miners previously.
But how exactly does this weapon work? Everything indicates that it will use light ammunition and was created so that you can use it in close range combat – placing it somewhere between a traditional assault rifle and an SMG.
“This sturdy and accurate assault rifle is the ideal choice for tight locations.” Can be read in the description. To get an idea of its appearance, consult the photograph below.
According to leakers, the weapon comes in three different varieties – Rare, Epic and Legendary – and will have a firing rate of seven bullets per second, causing damage of 22-24 points.
