Fortnite Battle Royale v18.30 - November 9 Hotfix: The Combat Pistol Appears!

The Fortnite Team

As part of the war effort, you voted with your Bars to fund the Combat Assault Rifle, a new Assault Rifle variation. Now another Combat class weapon enters the war against the Cubes. Already manufactured, the new Combat Pistol is on the Island now!

Combat Pistol: Power with a Kick

Fortnite Combat Pistol

Like the Combat Assault Rifle, the Combat Pistol sports a tight bullet spread and exceptional power. This power coincides with strong recoil, so it takes a savvy yielder to fire its full potential. 

Combat Pistols can be found in Chests, on the ground, and from fishing. The standard Pistol has been vaulted as the Combat Pistol has been distributed throughout the Island. 

The Sideways Rifle Enhanced

The Sideways Rifle has seen some refinements! It now reaches its superpowered state (or “close to overheating” state) faster, stays there longer, and is more accurate. Pick one up and take advantage of these changes.


Competitive notes:
  • The Shadow Flopper has been vaulted in competitive playlists.
