The strength of shotguns in Fortnite: Battle Royale has been at the center of a debate among community members.
Now that SMG’s have become some of the most powerful weapons across Fortnite following numerous updates by Epic Games, shotguns have started to take a ‘back seat’ when it comes to close quarters combat.
After dropping in Paradise Palms and quickly finding a Pump Shotgun, Tfue, a professional Fortnite player for FaZe Clan, found himself going head-to-head against a ‘no skin’ player that was wielding a pistol.
Even though it appeared as if he got a good shot off against the opponent, Tfue’s Pump Shotgun only dealt six damage, which left him in shock after being killed.
Epic Games has been receiving a myriad of community feedback concerning the state of Fortnite: Battle Royale at the time of writing, with many believing that the shotguns have been nerfed too much.
However, with updates dropping weekly, it is unknown if the developer has any ideas to implement major changes down the line to further adjust the ‘meta’ of the game.
