The Assault rifle has always been one of the most wanted weapons in Fortnite. It was first launched in Chapter 2 Season 8 and soon it was vaulted. But due to heavy demand, Fortnite took the step of unvaulting it in Chapter 3 Season 2, and now again the deadly assault weapon is back in the present season. With the latest v21.20 hotfix, Fortnite brought back the classic combat assault rifle.
In an official blog, Epic Games said, “Wield C.A.R.’s and spend some Bars! In this week’s hotfix, the Combat Assault Rifle drops in to kick things up a notch, and deep discounts hit Character services.“ It is worth pointing out that these rifles aren’t available in competitive modes. These weapons are easy to use and are worth giving a shot.
