  2. Unusual: green
  3. Rare: blue
  4. Epic: purple
  5. Legendary: orange

Sniper Rifles

Sniper rifles or sniper rifles are essential for gaining an advantage over enemies at long range. As soon as you pick up such a weapon, you should consider moving to an elevated position where you can enjoy a wider viewing angle.

Sniper AWP Sniper Rifle

  • Common: 31.4 DPS, 95 damage, 1 ammo
  • Uncommon: 33 DPS, 100 damage, 1 ammo
  • Rare: 34.7 DPS, 105 damage, 1 ammo
The Sniper AWP is one of the favorite weapons of Fortnite players. In the long distance, it is practically unbeatable for the damage it causes. One drawback is its manual reload or bolt reload system, which forces the player to take their eyes off the crosshairs. But with a lot of training, it's easy to get the hang of it. Grade: 9 Real Inspiration: Artic Warfare Police Sniper Rifle

Epic and Legendary Hasp Sniper Rifle

  • Epic: 36.3 DPS, 110 damage, 1 ammo
  • Legendary: 38.3 DPS, 116 damage, 1 ammo
Despite the different look, it is practically the same weapon in the Epic and Legendary versions, with a higher reload speed. Grade 10 Real Inspiration: Remington MSR Learn how to become the best sniper in Fortnite!

Shotguns

These weapons are ideal for using at close range from the enemy, as you can eliminate him with just one shot to the head , if you are good at aiming. Although their damage is very significant, shotguns are still slow weapons, so don't waste your shot. These weapons are a favorite of many players and absolutely lethal in the right hands.

Tactical Shotgun

  • Common : 106.5 DPS, 71 damage, 8 ammo
  • Uncommon : 112.5 DPS, 75 damage, 8 ammo
  • Rare : 118.5 DPS, 79 damage, 8 ammo
One of the most recognized weapons in Fortnite. It does a lot of damage and, in the right hands, is a versatile and effective weapon at close range. Grade: 7 Real inspiration: Possibly a Remington 870, with cosmetic elements

Pump Shotgun

  • Common : 49 DPS, 70 damage, 5 ammo
  • Uncommon : 56 DPS, 80 damage, 5 ammo
  • Rare : 63 DPS, 90 damage, 5 ammo
A very popular and common weapon, capable of causing a lot of damage in short and even medium range. Despite the creators nerfing the popular Double Pump, the "12" remains a formidable weapon in the right hands. Rating: 8 Real Inspiration: Remington 870

Epic and Legendary Pump Shotgun

  • Epic : 70 DPS, 100 damage, 5 ammo
  • Legendary : 77 DPS, 110 damage, 5 ammo
Basically, this is a vitamin version of the Common Shotgun. It does not automatically reload, but its damage compensates for everything. Grade: 9 Real inspiration: Possibly a Kel Tec KSG

Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are very good at mid-range combat situations and generally at all distances, taking the melee apart. They are the most versatile weapons in the game.

Assault Rifle "M16"

  • Common : 165 DPS, 30 Damage, 30 Ammo
  • Unusual : 170.5 DPS, 31 damage, 30 ammunition
  • Rare : 181.5 DPS, 33 damage, 30 ammo
A very versatile automatic rifle. Rare and Unusual versions can even rival other weapons for good shooting efficiency and little retreat. It is a common and popular weapon. Grade: 6 Real Inspiration: It's inspired by a Colt XM177, from the same family as the M16 and M4.

Epic and Legendary Assault Rifle "SCAR"

  • Epic : 203 DPS, 37 damage, 30 ammo
  • Legendary : 214 DPS, 39 damage, 30 ammo
The best automatic rifle in the game (and possibly one of the best weapons). It is lethal, accurate and does a lot of damage even over long distances. The rate of fire is great. If you get one, use it well. In Chapter 2 this weapon does slightly less damage, but it's still worth it. Rating: 8 Real Inspiration: Naturally, a SCAR

"FAMAS" Burst Assault Rifle

  • Common : 132.5 DPS, 27 Damage, 30 Ammo
  • Uncommon : 142.2 DPS, 29 damage, 30 ammunition
  • Rare : 147.3 DPS, 30 damage, 30 ammo
The three-shot blast of this weapon lets you deal damage faster than a SCAR, but its accuracy is not the best. It is a great weapon for "shoot and run", firing quickly while moving. The Common and Uncommon versions are slightly better than the classic Assault Rifle, but the Rare version is effective. Grade: 7 Real Inspiration: A FAMAS. Who would say?

Epic and Legendary Blast Assault Rifle

  • Epic : 157 DPS, 32 damage, 30 ammo
  • Legendary : 162 DPS, 33 damage, 30 ammo
One of the new additions to the arsenal in Chapter 2, this powerful rifle is accurate and lethal with its incredible bursts. It is possible to get shots even at long distance with some ease. Its major disadvantage is that the comb is relatively short for such a high cadence, even in a burst. Rating: 8 Real Inspiration: An AUG

Submachine guns

These weapons are effective at close range, but their speed in firing will not completely replace the power of a strong and accurate shotgun blast. Depending on your playing style, you may prefer more rate of fire and movement than a brute shotgun attack.

Submachine gun

  • Common : 204 DPS, 17 damage, 30 ammo
  • Uncommon : 216 DPS, 18 damage, 30 ammo
  • Rare : 228 DPS, 19 damage, 30 ammo
Common, accurate and with a good rate of fire, the SMG is a good starter weapon when everyone is trying to loot and stay alive. On the other hand, the rare version is very effective in tight places. Such a bullet may not do much damage, but dropping an entire magazine into an enemy's face makes up for that lack. Grade: 7 Real Inspiration: A MP5

Epic and Legendary Submachine Gun "P90"

  • Epic: 240 DPS, 20 damage, 30 ammo
  • Legendary: 252 DPS, 21 Damage, 30 Ammo
With an insane rate of fire, this weapon is a real terror, so much so that the creators decided to remove some damage to avoid imbalances. If you are lucky enough to get one, use it well, as it is really effective on short and medium distances, despite spending ammo quickly. Grade: 9 Real Inspiration : FN's P90

Explosive Weapons (Bazookas)

Explosive weapons (bazookas) do a lot of damage to both buildings and unprotected players. They are rare and very effective weapons for their destructive power, wide range and damage radius. However, watch out for shots too close or the explosion will hit you!

Rocket launcher

  • Common : 52.5 DPS, 70 damage, 1 ammo
  • Uncommon : 63.7 DPS, 85 damage, 1 ammo
  • Rare : 75 DPS, 100 damage, 1 ammo
Like the grenade launcher, this weapon can be destructive to your opponents. Aim and detonate buildings or other obstacles with ease. Don't waste shots, ammunition is rare. It is a good weapon to keep for the final game rounds. Grade: 9 Real Inspiration : RPG-7

Epic and Legendary Rocket Launcher

  • Epic: 86.2 DPS, 115 damage, 1 ammo
  • Legendary: 96 DPS, 130 damage, 1 ammo
Basically, it is an improved version of the normal rocket launcher, but it does fearful damage. Enjoy well. Grade 10 Real Inspiration: A Carl Gustav M2

Pistols

These weapons are essentially for you to protect yourself in an emergency. It is very important to hit the opponent in the head to take advantage of the damage done.

Gun

  • Common: 162 DPS, 24 damage, 16 ammo
  • Uncommon: 168 DPS, 25 damage, 16 ammo
  • Rare: 175 DPS, 26 damage, 16 ammo
Against an unprotected enemy in the early stages of the game, it is well worth it. Empty the charger without fear. Other than that, it's not worth it. Grade: 4 Real inspiration : Beretta M92

Epic and Legendary Pistol

  • Epic: 189 DPS, 28 damage, 16 ammo
  • Legendary: 196 DPS, 29 damage, 16 ammo
A vitaminized version of the pistol, this weapon is beautiful and stylish, but it is not worth keeping it for long. Rating: 5 Real Inspiration: Colt M1911 ACP

Grenades and Explosives

Grenades are explosive to throw. You can use grenades to detonate enemies that are protected, ruin buildings or clean up a room without exposing yourself too much. At this point, it is the only throwing explosive available in battle royale.

Fragmentation Grenade

The explosive that everyone knows, loves and fears at the same time. Use and abuse whenever possible. They are everywhere. They are very useful and the 400 impact points are excellent.
  • Common: 210 DPS, 105 damage, per grenade
