Strategy

  • The Primal Rifle is a good choice for mid to late-game scenarios.
  • The weapon does not have first shot accuracy, so this weapon is better only at close-mid range.
  • It has a faster fire rate compared to the Assault Rifle and Makeshift Rifle, making this slightly better in terms of fire rate.
  • Even with its benefits, all bows can take a player down using this, so be careful.

Changes

Trivia

  • The Primal Rifle bears a resemblance to the Black Metal weapons from Save the World, but only due to its design since there is no other weapon in Save the World that looks like it.
  • This and the Assault Rifle are the best ARs in Season 6, however, this can beat the Assault rifle at close range
  • It is one of the four Primal weapons in Battle Royale.
