    • Available in Epic and Legendary variants.
    • Fires Medium Ammo.
    • Holds 6 rounds.
    • 63 / 66 damage per shot.
    • Headshot multiplier of 2.
    • Available from Floor loot, Chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Loot Carriers.
  • Vaulted
    • Rare Tactical Assault Rifle
      • With the unvaulting of the Suppressed Submachine Gun, we wanted to make sure loot distribution in this class of item was well distributed.
    • Impulse Grenades
    • Rift-To-Go
    • Pirate Cannon
  • Unvaulted
    • Uncommon and Rare Pump Shotgun
      • Available in floor loot and Vending Machines
      • There’s been a lot of feedback around the Tactical Shotgun and Combat Shotgun effectiveness, and so we’re experimenting with a world where the Pump Shotgun joins the current shotgun lineup.
    • Shockwave Grenade
    • Suppressed SMG
      • We feel the Suppressed Submachine Gun can fill a complementary role to the Burst Submachine Gun as a viable alternative.

  • Tactical Shotgun
    • Availability from floor loot reduced from 8.19% to 5.4%
    • Headshot Multiplier increased from 2 to 2.25

    • Balance adjustments
      • Base accuracy increased by 13.6%

      • Sprinting accuracy penalty reduced from 30% to 20%
      • Base damage increased from 23/24/25 to 24/25/26
    • The Burst SMG was dropping a bit too frequently for the role it was intended to fill. Additionally, it was underperforming when compared to similar items.

  • DrumGun
    • Reduced clip size from 50 to 40
    • Reduced fire rate from 9 to 8
    • Since the unvaulting, the Drum Gun has outperformed in unintended areas. This adjustment should help create more counterplay in combat.
  • Heavy Assault Rifle
    • Increased damage from 36/38/40 to 38/40/42
    • The Heavy Assault Rifle usage rates aren’t quite where we’d like. This adjustment to Damage is intended to offset some of the downsides of the weapon.
