Tactical Assault Rifle

Tactical Assault Rifle | Fortnite - zilliongamer

Tactic take the day! This robust and precise assault rifle is the ideal option for the tight quarters.

Weapon details:

  • Tactical Assault Rifle
    • Available in Rare, Epic and Legendary variants.
    • Available from Floor loot, Chests, Supply Drops, and Vending Machines.
      • Fully Automatic
      • 30 round magazine
      • Deal 22/23/24 damage
      • Headshot Multiplier of 1.75x
      • This weapon has a tight spread in close quarters but it less effective at long range when compared to other Assault Rifles.

Weapons + Items

  • Reduce Baller health from 200 to 150
    • The primary goal of the Baller is to provide fun and exciting mobility. We feel that it still has a little too much defensive agency - this change should reduce the effectiveness there while not impacting its strengths.
  • Drum Gun Adjustments
    • Reduce base damage from 26/27 to 22/23
      • Since its unvaulting, the Drum Gun effectiveness has been slightly higher than we wanted. This change should reduce its combat effectiveness while still retaining its flavor.
  • Vaulted Compact SMG
    • Due to the recent addition of the Drum Gun and the brand new Tactical Assault Rifle, we wanted to reduce the availability of high rate-of-fire weapons. 


  • Slipstream adjustments
    • Slipstreams no longer block building.
      • Trying to build up to get into Slipstream should be an easy & intuitive experience. We noticed some cases where players would build-up to the Slipstream, but due to building restrictions would take a 'leap of faith' and not make the jump. This should make getting into a Slipstream easier.
    • Players flying in a Slipstream will destroy player built objects when they collide.
    • Slipstream is now disabled after storm phase 5. 


  • Improvements made to level streaming performance on all platforms.
    • This will reduce cases of buildings not loading in.
  • Physics optimizations to improve performance in conduits.
