Here are the stats for Fortnite’s Rapid Fire SMG

The Fortnite map is highly varied when it comes to its terrain. While a part of the map is covered with mountains, the other areas can be a tropical paradise, each favoring a different playstyle.

There are many kinds of weapons in the game and only five inventory slots that you can use to store them. Each weapon shines in different situations and you can only play with so many variations, meaning you’ll need to choose the ranges that you want to excel at.

While sniper rifles are perfect for covering long distances, you’ll need a submachine gun (SMG) or a shotgun to ensure you’ll have the highest odds of winning any close-range skirmish. Assault rifles may feel like they’re also fine for short-range use, but they’ll be bested by SMGs and shotguns on most occasions. There are a handful of SMGs to choose from to complete your loadout and each does something that the other fails to do so.

The Rapid Fire SMG has been the preferred choice of players with stable aim since it requires a good deal of tracing your opponents as they move. It has a considerably higher fire rate than other SMG weapons in the game, meaning if you’re spraying while you’re off your target, you may run out of bullets. It’s a weapon that rewards precision and can help you quickly burst down an opponent during a build fight.
