Update v23.40 also includes new exotic weapons from battle royale. One of the most notable is the new Heisted Breacher Shotgun that can obliterate any destructible object in one shot!

Another new exotic weapon worth mentioning is the Heist Explosive Assault Rifle. What makes this gun unique is that it’s equipped with special bullets that explode upon impact. This is perfect for those who have poor aim because the enemy will suffer from splash damage if you shoot at the ground close to them.
