    #2Heavy Assault Rifle

    Heavy Assault Rifle

    The Heavy Assault Rifle is an AR weapon in Fortnite that does highly significant damage. Although it has a slow fire rate, it's more rewarding for a player that is patient when it comes to shooting rather than someone who is prone to spamming.

    "A beast of an assault rifle. Hands down the best assault rifle at pumping out damage however it does lack in fire rate compared to all the other ARs. If you're the type of player whose more methodical when it comes to firing your gun rather than the more common spray-and-pray strat, then definitely keep an eye out for this gun."

    "This gun can literally one-shot people, and I mean LITERALLY. Find a guy peaking his head out of a building and watch him get one-shotted. Accuracy is key for any player using snipers. You really have to practice your aim when using this weapon, if not then you're better off not using it at all. It's also the best gun if you're into making trick shot montage videos."

    "Easily the gun that I have the most fun playing. I just love blowing people up, especially when they just build and build and build rather than actually fight. I use it to destroy buildings but most of the time I just use it when I wanna fool around and have a good time."

    #5Legendary Pump Shotgun

    Legendary Pump Shotgun

    The Legendary Pump Shotgun is a weapon in Fortnite that does a ton of damage and has a relatively tight spread. It can one-shot opponents if you hit them at very close range. However, it lacks accuracy when used in mid-to-long range combat.

    "It has great damage, probably the best among all shotguns however the thing that I really hate about shotguns is their inconsistency. It's as if sometimes the hitbox registration on players is just pure garbage whenever I use a shotgun. Still, I would have to say that the legendary pump has the ability to one-shot opponents especially in closed quarters."

    "Spray and Pray. That's all you need to know about this gun. Builders easily hate this gun cause it shreds their structures before they can even build or edit. If you catch somebody hiding inside of a structure, whip out your P90 and watch how it demolishes structures and your opponents."

    "A better alternative to the pump shotgun. Because of the increased clip and fire rate, you're more than likely to hit your enemies and you won't have to worry about running out of ammo during an engagement."

    "It's basically a SCAR but quieter. I mainly use it to catch my opponents off guard and by surprise. It's just as well-rounded as the SCAR but as soon as you start fighting with your opponents and they're aware of your position, it's no different than a regular AR."
