Pump Shotgun is one of the most preferred weapons of choice when it comes to close quarters. Shotguns are very well known for being the most lethal weapon once you get close to your opponent. Pump Shotgun uses Shells ‘n’ Slugs. It is the most effective ammunition in close range and it can hit multiple targets in a single shot. Although this ammo type has one of the highest damages per shot, it has the lowest firing rate.
Just like most weapons in Fortnite Battle Royale, Pump Shotgun comes in four different rarities, common, rare, epic, and legendary. Each tier of Pump Shotguns has different stats. Amount of damage that you would deal to the enemy with this weapon would change dramatically depending on the tier. For instance, common Pump Shotgun has 66.5 DPS, 96 Damage, and 45 Structure Damage while the legendary tier has 77 DPS, 110 Damage, and 54 Structure Damage.
Without a doubt, legendary Pump Shotgun is one of the strongest weapons you could get your hands to. It can be hard to find but once you see it, never miss taking it. It has a chance to appear among the same weapon classes. Players will have, give or take 35% chance to find this weapon in Chest Loots and 1% in floor loot.
At point blank range, headshots with all rarities except common can eliminate enemies with 100% health and shield with a headshot. It is the only shotgun that deals over 200 damage with a single shot. We recommend equipping a fast firing weapon with Pump Shotgun. If you manage to deal damage to your enemy with it, switch it to an SMG for example and finish off your enemy since it would take more time to reload and shoot again. Once you get comfortable with the weapon, arguably you will realize that it is the best gun in Fortnite right now.
