There are a lot of different weapons in Fortnite Battle Royale, but popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins believes one might be the most underrated.
Playing Fortnite live on stream as usual, Ninja found himself in an engagement with an enemy player, and the weapon he chose in the fight was none other than the Epic rarity of the Dual Pistols.
What proceeded was relatively light work; two bursts from the pistols gave Ninja the easy elimination and prompted him to make a bold claim about the weapon.
“Well then,” he said nonchalantly. “‘Dualies’ might be the most underrated gun in the game.”
It’s hard to argue with his statement, considering how fast he wipes out the enemy player using the Dual Pistols, although it also could have something to do with Ninja being insanely good at the game.
Introduced to Fortnite via the v4.5 Patch, the Dual Pistols are a set of two Rare or Epic rarity pistols that are equipped at the same time, allowing the user to shoot both with one pull of the trigger.
However, despite its apparent advantages, the weapon never became a popular option among the player-base, with many of the top echelon of players preferring SMGs as the followup to their main AR weapon.
But as Ninja proved in the clip, if used correctly and with accurate aim, the weapons can prove to be devastating, even at relatively long range.
Considering Ninja’s influence in the Fortnite community, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see more players start using the Dual Pistols just based on his stated opinion.
