The 29.30 update has unvaulted the popular Tactical AR in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2. The current iteration of the reliable rifle first appeared during Chapter 4 Season 1 and quickly became a fan-favorite thanks to its range, accuracy, and low recoil.

Modeled after the custom Assault Rifle wielded by Keanu Reeves in John Wick 3, the weapon can do plenty of damage in the right hands. So, here’s how you can get the Tactical AR in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 2.

You can further enhance the weapon’s capabilities if you mod it at a Weapons Bunker.

The Tactical AR is best suited for medium-ranged combat where its range and tight spread come in handy. While it can be outfitted with a scope, the weapon is not ideal for long-range engagements as you’ll likely come up against Sniper Rifles and DMRs that have a higher damage output.

The same can be said about close-range battles as well, as SMGs and Shotguns should be the first choices when facing enemies head-on.

How to purchase Tactical AR in Fortnite

You can buy an Epic rarity Tactical AR in Fortnite from the Apollo NPC for 300 Gold Bars. The NPC can be found at the Summit Temple landmark located near the Mount Olympus POI.
