Fortnite: Lock-on Pistol – Effective Range

In the YouTube video clip that TG Plays shared, he successfully eliminated one player by shooting from a distance. It is thought to be between 40 and 50 meters distant from him. Given that it was a pistol intended for close-quarters combat, TG Plays was surprised by how far the range was. The Lock-on Pistol can efficiently “lock on” opponents within an estimated maximum range of 50 meters, as seen in the video clip below.

Fortnite’s Zero-Build vs Build Mode: Lock-on Pistol Effectiveness

It is suggested to only use the Lock-on Pistol in Fortnite’s Zero-Build mode. It is because you have to aim it for a little bit longer for it to be more effective. In build mode, players must be masters of multitasking, every second counts. This might cause some players not be able to aim, shoot, and build at the same time.

Nonetheless, it has been shown that certain skilled players may soon be able to properly manage and wield this weapon in whatever other modes they want. In Fortnite’s Zero-Build mode, casual players can train with and become proficient with the Lock-in Pistol.
