Although the regular DMR has now been vaulted following the 22.10 update, the new Cobra DMR has taken its place. This weapon is described as a “long-range, high fire rate marksman rifle” and is great for long-distance takedowns.

What’s the difference between the DMR and the Cobra DMR?

Considering there’s already a popular DMR in Fortnite, you might be wondering what’s so special about the new Cobra DMR. They are very similar guns, but there are a few key differences to point out.

The main benefits of the Cobra DMR are that it has a much higher fire rate and it also has a mag size of 20, which is double the amount of the regular DMR. This means you won’t need to reload as often.

On the flip side, the Cobra DMR deals less damage per shot than the regular DMR and it also takes longer to reload, so when your magazine does run out you’ll be out of action for slightly longer.

The regular DMR has been vaulted, so the Cobra DMR is your only option for now. The two weapons aren’t that different, though, so it shouldn’t take long to get used to this new addition.
