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.
Fortnite Combat Pistol Stats
The Combat Pistol comes in various rarities, including Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary. We've included the stat range of the Combat Pistol at each rarity below for your convenience.
