The Scoped Assault Rifle is an Assault Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was introduced in the Pre-Season.


The Scoped Assault Rifle is a mid to long ranged fully-automatic weapon with a low zoom scope equipped. It fires slowly, does similar to damage to the Assault Rifle, but its key purpose is engagements at ranges where un-scoped weapons cannot effectively hit targets. The weapon is weak at close range due to its low fire-rate and low damage per second, but excels at long ranges where it can hurt targets using hitscan.

Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.

  • The Scoped Assault Rifle can be a good replacement for a sniper rifle, especially if you are not good at compensating for slow moving bullets affected by gravity. Using this weapon allows the player to aim directly at targets and at least deal some damage.
  • Carrying a Scoped Assault Rifle and a normal Assault Rifle can be a beneficial tactic as the player will have a 100% accurate long-range weapon and a slightly less accurate medium-range weapon, giving them an advantage against players who only carry one of the same kind.
  • Despite its ability to fight at medium range, carrying only a Scoped Assault Rifle is not recommended as it fires slowly, giving opponents who use a faster firing weapon an advantage at closer ranges.
  • Its magazine size of 15 for low level or 20 for high level and is slightly limiting if holding down the trigger. This is generally advisable against, as the gun is best used when carefully aiming shots as a long-range weapon rather than firing haphazardly, which is often effective and costly in ammo.
  • Its damage makes it unsuitable for destroying buildings at anything below very long ranges.
  • It is generally not advisable to use the gun without aiming down sights, as it is extremely inaccurate if fired without aiming.
  • Make sure you have some walls built around you before reloading a Scoped Assault Rifle, or switch to another rifle, then reload once your target is eliminated or fled
