Burst Assault Rifle, one of the controversial weapons in Fortnite history, has returned to the island with hotfix update 23.10. It is a fully automatic medium-range weapon that debuted with the Fortnite pre-season update.
The weapon was skipped in one of Fortnite’s Chapter 3 updates due to players preferring other assault rifles to the Burst Assault Rifle in matches. Therefore, the use of the burst assault rifle was relatively rare, and the developers decided to remove it from the loot.
However, Epic Games have once again decided to bring back the Burst Assault Rifle to Fortnite Battle Royale in patch 23.10. Like the other weapons in Fortnite, the AR comes in five rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary, and spawns on the ground and from chests, Rare Chests, Supply Drops, and can also be purchased from certain players. npc. .
If you’ve never used a burst assault rifle before, it’s worth noting that the weapon uses medium bullets and has a 1.5x headshot multiplier. As its name suggests, the Assault Rifle fires in bursts of two and works best in medium-range combat.

The Burst Assault Rifle is relatively useless against buildings though, so be sure to use a close-range weapon like a shotgun or your harvesting tool when it comes to destroying structures. On top of that, the second shot accuracy of the weapon is very pathetic. Therefore, avoid using it during long-range battles and stick to the plan.
