While the Tactical Shotgun may have been in the game during parts of Chapter 2, it was still one of the first weapons ever added to the game. Many were sad to see it eventually leave the game. It had a heavy hit while also having a fast fire rate for a shotgun. Its large magazine also was what made it a favorite.

The Pump Shotgun is arguably one of the best weapons to ever be in Fortnite. Now, its sibling, the Sharp-Tooth Shotgun, gives players a similar resemblance to what it felt like to wield this legendary weapon. Still, the Sharp-Tooth does nowhere near as much damage as the Pump did. It was strong, and anyone who heard its sound would be struck with fear.

Known especially for its "Scar" variant, the Assault Rifle stands as possibly the most famous weapon ever to be in Fortnite.
