Tfue explains why Fortnite Chapter 2’s shotguns are completely “broken”

Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has been playing Fortnite Chapter 2 since the new season kicked off on October 15 and has now identified one weapon that he will be refusing to pick up again in the future. 

Epic Games shuffled the pack in almost every way possible with the arrival of Chapter 2, Season 1, and with that major update came the arrival of not only a fresh map, but various new weaponry options as well.

While Tfue has been chiefly positive about the battle royale title following the arrival of these new features, he’s discovered that one gun just isn’t working for him.

Epic GamesFortnite Chapter 2 has seen the introduction of a new Pump Shotgun, but Tfue doesn’t seem convinced of its qualities.

The popular Twitch streamer took aim at one of the new shotguns during a broadcast, explaining why nobody should even be bothering with it. 

“I can’t use the Pump man. I can’t do it. It just doesn’t f**king ever hit over 70 damage. If I hit a perfect headshot, it doesn’t f**king hit,” he said, after being eliminated with the Pump Shotgun in-hand. 

Then, after continuing to try it out on stream, he landed another shot with the weapon and it only dealt 28 damage to his opponent’s shield, before he switched it out and eliminated them with an assault rifle.

“Never, ever in my f**king life am I picking it up again bro. I don’t care. I don’t care, I’ll use a grey f**king pistol over any f**king pump. I don’t care, I’m not using it anymore. It’s literally the worst f**king gun in the game,” he added. “It literally doesn’t work. Like, it’s not me, the gun is actually broken.”

While it might seem unlikely that the former FaZe Clan member will keep his promise and “never” pick one up ever again, the fact of the matter is, he just can’t seem to deal enough damage with it. 

The damage, depending on which rarity you have, for the Pump Shotgun in Fortnite is between 70 and 90 when striking the body, meaning that it’s not possible to eliminate a player in one shot with it – if they have a full health bar. 

Epic GamesThis new shotgun in Fortnite Chapter 2 replaces the old Pump – which was a fan-favorite.

The same can’t be said for its Epic and Legendary variants, though, which deal 100 and 110 damage respectively. 

Perhaps Tfue will just gamble on finding better rarity shotguns later in matches instead. We’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, though – he’s hardly impressed by this new addition.

Fortnite Season 4 is now entering its final week, but before it wraps up, you’ve got one last batch of Challenges to get through in order to claim some huge last-minute experience.

After what feels like forever, the current Marvel-themed takeover is about to reach its conclusion. Galactus is hurtling towards the map, and the Nexus War is finally set for a major in-game event on December 1.

If you’re worried that you might not have time to fill out your Battle Pass before then, fear not. Epic Games has come through with more XP boosts this week than any week prior. You’ll be able to catch up and finish things off in no time thanks to this week’s XP Xtravaganza Challenges.

From where you’ll need to go and what you’ll need to do, we’ve got everything broken down. Here’s how you can complete Week 14’s XP offerings.

Foil skins for the current Marvel lineup will soon be gone forever.

There are a whopping 12 Challenges to get through this week, plenty to keep you busy. Many of these can be kept in the back of your mind while you focus on some of the more tricky ones. However, there’s nothing too complex here, so you should be able to get them all done in barely a few hours of playing.

Some Challenges ask you to use certain weapons and items. Be sure to track down Assault Rifles and Boogie Bombs in every game while keeping an eye out for vehicles as well.

One unique task requires you to keep your full health bar intact along with full shields. Obviously, this might need you to camp things out and play it safe. Eight minutes is the set time so try to find a safe spot, barricade yourself in, and wait this one through.

For more casual Challenges like fishing from a motorboat or riding zip lines to and from Upstate New York, your best bet could be to drop into some Team Rumble. Trying these in the standard Battle Royale playlists might prove frustrating. The full list of Week 14 Challenges can be found below.
