Introduced Patch 9.01

Tactical Assault Rifle is an Assault Rifle in Battle Royale, It is available in Epic and Legendary (the Rare variant was vaulted in 9.30 Content Update #1) and uses Light Bullets as ammunition. The Tactical Assault Rifle is fully automatic, and has a 30-round magazine.

The Rare Tactical Assault Rifle is still available in Creative mode.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The weapon can serve as a cross between a Submachine Gun and an Assault Rifle: It deals moderate damage at ranges one would assign to the aforementioned weapons.
  • Unfortunately, its damage is rather low for long-range fights, in comparison to Assault Rifles that use Medium Bullets.
  • Being rather compact, it can be used at a certain extend on close ranges (i.e. 2 tiles away from the target), although shotguns are still recommemded for much closer ranges.
