History
Introduced Patch 9.01
Vaulted Patch 10.00

Tactical Assault Rifle was an Assault Rifle in Battle Royale, It was available in Rare, Epic and Legendary and uses Light Bullets as ammunition. The Tactical Assault Rifle is fully automatic, and has a 30-round magazine.

The Tactical Assault Rifle's Rare variant was first vaulted on 9.30 Content Update #1 and the Epic and Legendary variants were vaulted on Patch 10.00, making it currently only available with the Playground and Creative modes. It was probably vaulted to reduce the amount of Assault Weapons or it may have been vaulted due to the John Wick crossover event being over.

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, although what it loses in damage is made up in accuracy - it is so accurate that many people called this weapon a "laser beam".
  • 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 recommended for much closer ranges.

Changes[edit | edit source]

Patch 10.00 (August 1, 2019)

Weapons + Items

  • Vaulted
    • Epic and Legendary Tactical Assault Rifle
    • Over time, we have added many mobility options, both itemized and map-based. We feel that Season X is better experienced with a reduction in mobility. As with all changes, we’ll keep a close eye on how this affects the player experience.


9.30 Content Update #1 (June 25, 2019)

  • Vaulted
    • Rare Tactical Assault Rifle

Patch 9.01 (May 15, 2019)

What's New?

  • Tactical Assault Rifle
    • Tactics take the day! This robust and precise assault rifle is the ideal option for tight quarters.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the second assault weapon in Battle Royale to use Light Bullets, following the Minigun.
  • This is the first weapon that does not use the built-in scope.
  • It is modeled after the Taran Tactical modified SIG-Sauer MPX John Wick uses in Parabellum. However, the MPX is not classed as an assault rifle, but rather a submachine gun, which makes the Tactical AR a bit of an oddball, as it's a submachine gun classed as an assault rifle.
  • The Tactical Assault Rifle was teased in the Season 9 Battle Pass art loading screen.
  • The Tactical Assault Rifle is the third fastest-firing assault rifle, firing 7 bullets per second, then the Drum Gun firing 8 bullets per second and the Minigun firing 12 per second.
  • The Tactical Assault Rifle has a slight extra zoom, most likely to compensate for the unused scope.
  • Its Legendary version is still available in Solid Gold.
  • Tactical Assault Rifle can be considered a Season 9 exclusive as it's released in Season 9 and vaulted for Season 10.
  • Tactical Assault Rifle is the shortest lived assault weapon in Battle Royale, as it only lasted throughout Season 9.
