Havoc Suppressed Rifle

This is one of the newly added weapons in Chapter 4 Season 2. The Havoc Suppressed Rifle is a fully automatic and silenced weapon that can deal heavy damage to your enemies. If you can lay your hands on the Mythic version of the Suppressed Rifle, you can wreak havoc. To get the Mythic version of this weapon, you need to defeat the Highcard boss.

This weapon is best for medium and long range combat. It is highly accurate, suppressed, and allows you to reload while you aim down sights. The weapon has 39 magazine size with a 2.12 second reload time and deals 26 damage per bullet. This rifle shares some similarities in terms of looks with another weapon, the Phantom from Valorant. You can find this weapon from Common to Legendary variants.

Havoc Pump Shotgun

The Havoc Pump Shotgun is another new weapon that was added in Chapter 4 Season 2. It is an excellent short range weapon that can deal above 120 damage via headshots to your enemies. You can even get the Mythic version of the shotgun from the vaults after you defeat Highcard NPC.

The vaults will be indicated by lock icons on the map once you have the keys. The Havoc Pump Shotgun can be found from ground loot, chests, and even vending machines. You will also need to grab this weapon to complete a weekly challenge that requires you to deal 750 damage to your enemies using it.

Heavy Sniper Rifle

The Heavy Sniper Rifle was unvaulted this season. It is an extremely powerful rifle that uses heavy bullets, but the downside is the slow reload rate. The magazine size of the weapon is one, which means you you get a single shot. You need to have decent aim if you want to maim your enemies using this rifle. This weapon comes in four rarities: Rare, Epic, Legendary, and Mythic.

The best part is that you can demolish walls and vehicles, so if your enemies are hiding behind some build, this weapon can break through your opponent's cover during combat. You can find this weapon from ground loot, chests, and can look for more keys to get a better variant of this weapon.

Red-Eye Assault Rifle

This weapon was introduced in Chapter 4 Season 1 and is sticking around for Season 2. The weapon is fully automatic and has 25 magazine size with a 3.5 fire rate, and uses medium bullets. The Red-Eye Assault Rifle is one of the most popular weapons that allows you to aim down sights using the first person point of view, which is extremely accurate. This weapon works better in long and medium ranged combat. You can find it from ground loot, chests, and can get a better variant of this weapon by finding more keys.

Twin Mag SMG

The Twin Mag SMG is another popular weapon added in Chapter 4 Season 1. The best part about this weapon is the dual magazines attached to one another that makes the reload time significantly faster. You can find this weapon from Common to Legendary variants. The Twin Mag SMG uses light bullets, so the damage is not that great but the fire rate is extremely quick, which makes this a great weapon. It works best in close-quarter fights with enemies. You can find this weapon from ground loot, chests, and can look for more keys to get the better variant of this weapon.

Cobra DMR

The Cobra DMR, introduced in Chapter 3 Season 4, is one of the best weapons that you can use during long range combat. You can find this weapon from Common to Mythic variants. The Cobra DMR is another weapon that has made its comeback in Chapter 4 Season 2. The best part about this weapon is the bigger scope compared to the Red-Eye Assault Rifle, quick rate of fire, and the fast reload speed. You can find this weapon from ground loot, holo chests, vaults, and supply drops.
