Recently the Twitter account @ lucas7yoshi_ publicly showed a series of statistics about a new Tactical Assault Rifle. Precisely today this rifle appeared in news of the game with an announcement that said "Coming Soon," and remembering that Epic Games plans to launch a new update Fortnite v9.01 in the coming days, it would not be surprising that this rifle is part of it.
Characteristics of the Fortnite Tactical Assault Rifle
According to the information provided by @ lucas7yoshi_, the Fortnite Tactical Assault Rifle will come in three different varieties:
Its capacity of damage can vary, oscillating between 22 to 24 points, everything will depend on the rarity. In addition this weapon can do a minimum damage of 14.85 to 16.20 in the maximum range.
This new rifle will have a capacity of 30 shots and will take approximately two seconds to recharge. It's estimated that it can shoot around seven shots per second, managing to generate damage equal to 25 to the structures per shot.
It is very unlikely that the Tactical Assault Rifle will replace any of the current Assault Rifles. On the other hand, it should be noted that this information is based on leaks, which means that Epic Games can modify them at any time.
There is no doubt that this season 9 in Fornite has been full of surprises as new skins and events were added, the most recent being the Fortbyte challenge, which contains 100 computer chips scattered all over the map. Until now there are 23 available located on the map or can be achieved by completing the statistical challenges.
