The Tactical Assault Rifle has returned to Fortnite, so here’s how you can get the classic AR weapon in Chapter 5 Season 2.

Fortnite’s 29.30 update has unleashed the Tactical Assault Rifle on the island to wreak havoc in Chapter 5 Season 2.

It was first introduced in Season 9 and has reappeared multiple times. The fully automatic AR has been given some further tweaks by Epic but still boasts high accuracy with its tight bullet spread and low recoil, making it particularly strong at medium-long range.

Here’s how to get your hands on the Tactical Assault Rifle in Fortnite for Chapter 5 Season 2.
