Fortnite Battle Royale is still one of the most popular games in the world. Even though the game lost some players over the years, Epic Games still managed to consolidate a big chunk of players. The game is getting constant updates each month and the developers are trying to keep the community happy, with events and updates. With that said, remember to get some Google Play Gift Cards to equip yourself with the weapons we’re about to show you.
Fortnite has a unique system when it comes to weapons in the game. The game does not have attachments like most Battle Royale titles, every weapon is unique in the game. Epic Games is using a vault system to ensure the meta of the game changes nearly every month. Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 5 brought many changes into the game.
Today we are going to take a look at the best weapons available in Fortnite.
SCAR or the Epic/Legendary Assault Rifle is one of the best weapons in the game without a doubt. This weapon can shred your opponents with ease. SCAR is rare in the game but if you can get your hands on it, you will be at an advantage over your opponents. SCAR makes 35 damage to the body. In mid-range you can not wish for a better weapon, even at close range SCAR is formidable, but of course, it does not have the burst damage of a shotgun. But if you can pair it with a shotgun you will not regret it.
Maybe not the best weapon to get when you land, however, if you trust your aim, Bolt Action Sniper Rifle is definitely one of the deadliest weapons in the game. The ability to one-shot players in the game is a huge advantage. The only downside of this weapon is the reload time. Bolt Action Sniper Rifle can make the difference between winning and losing a match. One of the biggest advantages of this weapon is that there is no damage falloff at a distance, and if you can match this weapon with an Assault rifle, it will be a deadly combination for sure.
This shotgun is one of the strongest weapons in the game. Especially in the end game when you are in a building battle, the Tactical Shotgun will give you the CQC action you need. There is a reason why Fortnite created so many different shotgun variants since players love them and they are extremely useful weapons. Depending on where you shoot you can even one-shot your opponents. Of course, you will need to pair it with a mid-range weapon. Even the common variant of this weapon does 108 damage and with a 1.5x headshot multiplier, it is an amazing weapon.
Rocket Launchers are formidable weapons in the game, that is why Epic Games are having a hard time balancing it. In the right hands, Rocket Launchers can obliterate any opponents and buildings with ease. The reload time is the only drawback of this weapon, however, even if you miss, the blast radius will damage your opponent. The weapon is extremely rare right now, but if can find it never let it go for an inferior weapon.
If you are looking for a weapon with high DPS then the Compact SMG is the one for you. Epic Games nerfed the weapon several times because it was definitely overpowered, but still, with 200 DPS it is still one of the best weapons in the game. However, this weapon might be vaulted at any time, because it is still considered overpowered by some of the players.
One of the most exotic weapons in the game is the Dragon’s Breath Sniper Rifle. This weapon is unique on its own, and a bit pricey. But it sure is fun to use. You can set your opponents on fire with this weapon. It shares identical stats with the Bolt Action Sniper Rifle. However, its unique fire ability makes it special. One of the upsides of this weapon is that it is effective against buildings as well. You can set their structures ablaze. Since it shares the same stats with the Bolt Action Rifle, you can still one-shot your opponents from any range. Remember to compensate for bullet drop though.
Maybe the most common item on this list is the Assault Rifle. This weapon has been in the game since its release. So it’s hard to get a SCAR in the game. But the Assault Rifle’s other variants are still reliable weapons. You can easily find an assault rifle at any time in the game. This weapon will produce good results at mid-range. The downside of this weapon is definitely the CQC fights as a shotgun or an SMG will easily produce more DPS than the Assault Rifle in close quarters. But it is still considered one of the best weapons in Fortnite.
We can only say one thing about the Double Barrel Shotgun, it is one of the coolest weapons in Fortnite. The Double Barrel Shotgun is deadly with only one drawback, the magazine size. The weapon has only two buckshots, and if you miss both shots you are at a disadvantage. However, if you are a player with a good aim then this will destroy your opponents with ease in the game. Be sure to pair it with a good mid-range weapon to compensate for the reload time and the magazine size of the Double Barrel Shotgun.
As we have said before, Fortnite Battle Royale has changed over the years. Epic Games is trying to keep the experience unique as time goes by. But the competition is fierce especially after the release of the Warzone.
Even though many developers created battle royale games, Fortnite is still as popular as ever. Fortnite still offers the best events in the gaming world – just take a look at the concerts and events we have seen in the game. Epic Games did make several mistakes over the years, but they are still trying to care for their baby with new weapons and amazing events. After all, we are talking about one of the most influential games of all time here.
