Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle Stats: Everything You Need to Know

The Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle has been leaked recently ahead of the release of Update V4.2 that will come sometime later this week. This new weapon is sure to be a hit with players as it is one of the most important new additions to the arsenal that players can use in Battle Royale.

We are going to have a deep dive into how the Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle works exactly from stats to what it’s best used for and more. Now, you might have comparisons in your head already to the Assault Rifle variants already available but this one is a little different. Codenamed the Bullpup Burst, specifically, this baby is not one to mess with.

Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle Stats Explained

Now, how about those Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle stats? Well, the leak only had stats available for the Epic and Legendary variants so that’s what we’re going to give you. That doesn’t mean there aren’t other variations of it out there (though that certainly could be the case), but adjust the stats for the uncommon and rare versions in your head accordingly.

As for the Epic Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle, this one has 32 damage to the body of a player, while headshots are 64 damage to the head, which is pretty darn solid. Reload time is 2.5 seconds, which isn’t too bad.

Meanwhile, the Legendary Fortnite Burst Assault Rifle has stats of 33 damage to the body and 66 damage to the head. This is pretty solid as well, with a reload time of 2.3 seconds. But what’s the best way to utilize the Bullpup Burst Assault Rifle?

Players will want to use the Bullpup Burst Assault Rifle as a solid way to take out enemies from mid-range like you’d expect, but it’s also pretty good at taking out player creations. Need to quickly blast down a few walls or stairs? This baby is a great way to do that. Good luck!
