Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 1: Tips to find the Burst Assault Rifle in the game

The good old gun is making a comeback, be sure to know how you can equip it!

Assault Rifles are deadly weapons in the gameĀ Fortnite and are usually fan favorites in the game. The standard Assault Rifle was launched in Chapter 2 Season 8 and got really famous due to the rate of fire and ease of use, similarly, the game also offered a variation to the standard Assault Rifle by launching a Burst Assault Rifle in the game in 2017, but the rifles both standard and burst type have been subject to Vaulting and Unvaulting in the game, with the guns coming and going with updates. This time, however, with Fortnite’s v23.00 update in Chapter 4 Season 1, the Burst Assault Rifle is being introduced again in the game.

Fortnite’s v23.00 update added a lot many new features to the game, One of the changes is that it became possible to obtain a Burst Assault Rifle, a weapon that has come and gone several times since its debut in 2017. Burst Assault Rifle offers more damage as compared to standard Assault rifles but it comes at an expense of a decrease in the rate of fire. The gun is good for tagging up targets at distance but doesn’t add much while charging in on an enemy, for which standard Assault Rifle might be better, be sure to check our Standard Assault Rifle Article for Fortnite.

How to find the Burst Assault Rifle in Fortnite

Burst Assault rifle just like the standard one isn’t very hard to find and can be found on a very common and random basis, safe bets for finding the weapon would be by going through the Chests both standard and Rare Chests, the Supply Drops, and given how common the gun would be the floor loot as well. A more creative but harder way could be through fishing, with fishing holes acting as sources for the Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities of the weapon.

The gun as the name would suggest will be firing in two-round bursts, with each delivering a 1.5x headshot multiplier. The gun will be a good option for mid-range combat where you will be required to shoot enemies at distance, however, the gun will not offer anything great when in ambush and might even pose a natural disadvantage due to a lacking rate of fire. Thus usage of this gun is limited, historically Burst Assault Rifles have always been out-shadowed by standard ones due to ease in usage, it will be interesting to see how the gun will fare this time around.

Assault rifles can prove to be really deadly weapons if used properly. However, Burst Assault Rifles due to the lack of fire rate are often treated more as semi-automated snipers by players. It will be interesting to see how the gun will be used and treated by the fans in the game.
