Combat Pistols

  • The combat pistol gets added during the v18.30 update. It’s also one of many “Combat” weapons Epic has added during Season 8; alongside the Combat Assault Rifle and Combat SMG.
  • The Combat Pistol is one of the solid new addition to Fortnite, it works similar to a combat assault rifle and it can also use as a regular pistol.
  • It is a semi-auto pistol but doesn’t have the same fire rate as SMG but you can make an impact with this combat pistol if you could land the shots.
  • While using the ADS make sure that you hit the fire button as fast and often as possible, the Combat Pistol will tear through enemies if you are accurate and fast with it.
