How to get Fortnite Combat Pistol and stats

Epic Games has released a brand-new weapon in Fortnite v18.30: the Combat Pistol. Here's the location and stats of the Combat Pistol during of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8.
Epic Games has finally rolled out its much-anticipated v18.30 gameplay patch to Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 8. This latest gameplay update brings bug fixes, the Cube Queen's secret skin, the Combat Shotgun vs Boogie Ball vote, new Punchcard Quests for players to enjoy, and two new weapons: the Combat Pistol and Icy Grappler.

For the most part, the update builds upon The Convergence (Cube Town) update, which introduced massive monsters, new items and rewards, and the Halloween-themed LTM, Fortnitemares, to the battle royale.

Here's everything we know about the new Combat Pistol, including how to get it and weapon stats at the start of Fortnite v18.30!

How to get Fortnite Combat Pistol

The Combat Pistole is described as a "Semi-automatic pistol that benefits greatly from aiming down sights." It appears to be a potent weapon, boasting decent damage (if you can land your shots).

The Combat Pistol will be available to all players as floor or chest loot when it arrives later in the season. Therefore, you should have no trouble finding the weapon at typical loot spawn locations.
