With the recent V18.30 update, the Combat Pistol has been added to Fortnite. Just like any weapon that makes its way to the Battle Royale Island, everyone is trying to figure out how to get their hands on the brand new piece of weaponry. Luckily, I am here to steer you in the right direction, though the word “luck” is going to be the operative word here. This guide will show you where to find the brand new Combat Pistol in Fortnite.
Where to Find the Combat Pistol in Fortnite
The new Combat Pistol in Fortnite is included in the regular weapon pool, replacing the standard pistol which Epic has confirmed on their website has been vaulted. This means that it can be found in multiple different rarities, ranging from uncommon up to legendary. Since the weapon acts like other regular weapons in the game, you can find them in many of the same places. These weapons can be found from chests, on the floor as ground loot, and can even be a reward for fishing. There is no location that you will be able to guarantee that you get the new Combat Pistol, but knowing that it is a regular weapon should let you know to keep an eye out in spots you would usually expect to see pistols.
The official weapon description of the brand new pistol compares it to the Combat Assault Rife as it has a “tight bullet spread and exceptional power. This power coincides with strong recoil, so it takes a savvy yielder to fire its full potential.” It is going to take a bit of luck, but now you know where to look when it comes to the brand new Combat Pistol. Happy hunting and good luck!
