The Heavy Shotgun and Thunder Shotgun may have been replaced, but the new Havoc Shotgun is just as good. Here is everything you need to know about the new weapon and where to find it.

Fans of the Heavy Shotgun and the Thunder Shotgun will be disappointed, as the two weapons have officially been removed from Fortnite Chapter 4, Season 2. Do not worry though, the Battle Royale added a brand new shotgun that hits just as heavy.

There may be no more quick hip fires with the Thunder Shotgun and no more chances to snipe people with the Heavy Shotgun, but that does not mean we are missing out on the shotgun meta.

With the new season, Fortnite has decided to add a brand new weapon called the Havoc Pump Shotgun, and this bad boy hits much heavier than the Heavy Shotgun.

The Havoc Pump Shotgun packs quite a punch compared to the Heavy Shotgun and Thunder Shotgun

In recent Fortnite seasons, all shotgun variants had been nerfed to deal less than 200 damage per headshot, no matter their rarity. This created a bit of controversy within the scene simply because players liked to take another player out with one shot.

Even big hitters like the Heavy Shotgun were not able to just take a player from 200 to 0 health with one shot.

This has all changed with Fortnite's new Havoc Pump Shotgun. With incredibly insane stats and the same fire rate as the Thunder Shotgun, we should expect some swift eliminations with this gun.

Havoc Pump Shotgun Statistics

The new Havoc Pump Shotgun should create quite a bit of competition between players choosing to utilize its firepower. The weapon's stats are high, making it the strongest shotgun of the season.

Here are the stats of the Legendary Havoc Pump Shotgun:

  • Ammo: Shells
  • Damage: 132
  • Headshot damage: 190
  • Fire rate: 0.75
  • Magazine size: 6
  • Reload time: 0.75 seconds

The new gun is a powerhouse and is not a weapon you want to go up against. Not only does this weapon have a version in all rarities, but there is also a Mythic Havoc Pump Shotgun.

The new Mythic rarity of the Havoc Pump Shotgun is easily one of the strongest weapons ever seen in Fortnite. While the Legendary variant does 190 max damage per headshot, the new Mythic variant does up to 250 max damage per headshot.

Get ready Zero Build players, because that over-shield is not going to protect you like you think it will.

Now the biggest question is where exactly can one find the new Mythic Havoc Pump shotgun? The answer is simple; vaults.

Vaults are littered throughout the island, but can only be opened by using a keycard. Keycards are available only by defeating a boss. Get prepared and ready to battle, because that is the only way you will be able to get a Mythic shotgun.
