Epic Games recently removed the Travis Scott's Fortnite emote removed Item Shop following the Astroworld tragedy, and one day later, on 9th November 2021, released a Fortnite v18.30 hotfix update. While there isn't much to write home about in hotfix updates in general, the developer did release the Combat Pistol and vaulted the standard pistol in the process.

Here's what you need to know about the Combat Pistol, including where you can get one on the Fortnite island, as well as the full stats for this new weapon, for all its rarities.

Just like the Combat AR, the Combat Pistol has low bullet spread making for accurate shots and features high damage. The downside, however, is that this sidearm has a lot of recoil.

Due to the standard pistol being vaulted by Epic Games, players can easily find the Combat Pistol, as it is part of floor loot, found in chests, defeating a Caretaker (drops high-quality weapons) and even from fishing.

The only other gameplay change is the Fortnite v18.30 hotfix update sees refinements to the Sideways Rifle.

The Sideways Rifle now reaches its "close to overheating" aka superpowered state faster and stays there longer. It is also more accurate, so it's definitely worth adding to your arsenal during a match of Fortnite battle royale.
