Strategy

  • The Makeshift Rifle is a good choice for early game until one gets their hands on either a Primal or Assault Rifle. It has decent range and damage.
  • The weapon does not have first shot accuracy, so this weapon is better only at close-mid range.
  • It has a slower fire rate compared to the Assault Rifle and Primal Rifle, making this slightly worse than the other.
  • It has a low magazine count, so it is better off to get rid of it as soon as possible when you get the Primal or Assault Rifle.
  • Even bows can take a player down using this, so be careful

Changes

Trivia

  • The Makeshift Rifle bears a resemblance to the Buzzcut Rifle from Save the World.
  • It bears slight resemblance to the old Burst Assault Rifle.
  • This is arguably the worst AR to use in late game scenarios, due to it having a low magazine and fire rate.
  • It is one of the five Makeshift weapons in Battle Royale.
