Fortnite's map   is very varied in terms of terrain. While part of the map is covered with mountains, the other areas can be a tropical paradise, each with its preferred playstyle..

There are many kinds of weapons in the game, and only five inventory slots to use to store them. Each weapon shines in different situations and it is possible to play with so many variations that you have to be able to choose the scopes with which you excel.

While snipers are great for covering long distances, it will require an SMG or shotgun for closer combat. Assault rifles may appear to be suitable for close range use, but they are outmatched by SMGs and shotguns in most situations. Here are a few SMGs to choose from to complement their gear, and each does something the other can't..

The Rapid Fire SMG has become a favorite with players with stable aiming, as it requires good tracking of opponents when they move. It has a tremendous rate of fire, higher than other SMGs in the game, so if you miss your mark you'll quickly find yourself without bullets. It is a weapon that rewards precision and can help you take out an enemy quickly during a fight.

Here are all the in-game technical statistics of the Rapid Fire SMG on Fortnite ..

Rapid Fire SMG's DPS, damage, magazine size, cooldown, and building damage increase with each rarity level. Some arrive after a certain rarity, but the general potency of the weapon always increases as you move up the rarity scale. The fiercest competitor of the Rapid Fire SMG is the SMG (Submachine Gun), one of the oldest weapons in Fortnite

Should you use an SMG or the Rapid Fire SMG on Fortnite ?

The Submachine Gun and the Rapid Fire SMG might look similar, but they are different in terms of playstyle. Checking the stats of the Legendary SMG should be enough to give you an idea of ​​what makes them different.

Despite having higher base damage and a larger magazine, the SMG deals less damage than the Rapid Fire SMG. This is due to the DPS stat which takes into account all of the weapon's data like its rate of fire, reload time, and even accuracy. DPS will reflect reality if you still hit your target, which should be more difficult to accomplish in real life.

Which choice you take should depend entirely on your playstyle and whether you value a more regular weapon or a more bursty one.


The Rapid Fire SMG has been vaulted with the 14.00 update  , which means you will no longer be able to find it in a normal game of Fortnite for an indefinite period. Keep your eyes peeled for the patch notes to see if the Rapid Fire SMG becomes available again, so you'll be the first to wreak havoc with one of Fortnite's fastest weapons .
