History
Introduced Patch 1.6.3
Last Adjustment Patch 8.11
Vaulted Patch 11.0

Scoped Assault Rifle (Formerly Assault Rifle with Scope until Patch 4.4) was an Assault Rifle in Battle Royale that is available in Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary variants. It uses Medium Bullets, has a head shot multiplier of x2.0, and a scope that magnifies by 2x. The Scoped Assault Rifle is 100% accurate, and fires moderately damaging bullets continuously. Its damage never changes no matter what range it is shooting from.

The Scoped Assault Rifle used to be available in Rare and Epic variants, but was demoted to Uncommon and Rare following Patch 7.20.

The Scoped Assault Rifle has now been vaulted in Patch 11.0 along with a huge amount of items, all of which have been removed from Playground mode. However in Patch 11.10, the damage has been buffed from 26/27 to 34/36 with the Uncommon variant now only having 15 ammo magazine size. This was shortly reverted in Patch 11.11, It is unknown why it has been reverted.

In the Patch 11.20, the Scoped AR has received a new texture, meaning that it hints towards its unvault in the future.

The Rare and the new Epic and Legendary Scoped Assault Rifle was unvaulted in the Spy Games LTMs during the Spy Games event in Chapter 2, Season 2.

The Epic variant can be obtained in Creative by a glitch.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Scoped Assault Rifles give players of the Mobile version a big advantage due to a large amount of aim assist present on the mobile version.
  • The fast and accurate damage output of the gun makes it viable at ranges where assault rifles and sniper rifles are typically used.
  • Carrying a Scoped Assault Rifle and a normal Assault Rifle can be a beneficial tactic as the player will have a 100% accurate long-range weapon and a slightly less accurate medium-range weapon, giving them an advantage against players who only carry one of the same kind.
  • Despite its ability to fight at medium range, carrying only a Scoped Assault Rifle is not recommended as it fires slowly, giving opponents who use a faster firing weapon an advantage at closer ranges.
  • Its magazine size of 15 or 20 is slightly limiting if holding down the trigger. This is generally advised against, as the gun is best used when carefully aiming shots as a long-range weapon rather than firing haphazardly, which is often effective and costly in ammo.
  • Its damage makes it unsuitable for destroying buildings at anything below very long ranges.
  • The gun's damage against players should not be underestimated, as it can eliminate a non-shielded enemy in four shots.
  • It is generally not advised to use the gun without aiming down sights, as it is extremely inaccurate if fired without aiming.

Pros and Cons[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The rifle is loosely inspired by the CZ 805 BREN rifle, with some duct tape on the front, and also bears some resemblance to the Galil ACE. The sides have a skull and some lines on it indicating it eliminated 12 enemies.
    • Its configuration would make the weapon a Designated Marksman Rifle (DMR), a dedicated type of weapon that bridges the capabilities of a general-purpose combat rifle with a sniper rifle.
    • The Scoped Assault Rifle could also be loosely based off of the HK416 rifle.
    • The Scoped Assault Rifle also resembles the QTS-11, A Chinese Scoped Assault Rifle which can shoot special Airburst Grenades. However, this version obviously cannot shoot grenades.
  • The Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle was an upgraded Epic and Legendary version of this weapon, but was vaulted on the initial patch of Fortnite Season 9.
  • The Epic variant of the weapon is the same as the current Rare variant.
  • The Epic and the Legendary variants of the Scoped AR has different sound effects than the lower tier variants. Also, the Legendary variant of the Scoped AR has a different model rather than the lower tier variant models.
  • The Scoped Assault Rifle is the second vaulted weapon to get a new texture. The first being the Compact SMG.
