Fortnite Guns: Which Are Considered the Best of All Time?

When deciding which Fortnite guns would be considered the best of all time, you have to account for a few factors. The amount of damage a weapon does is not enough, but its aim, recoil, and simply just how legendary it was when it came out all play a part in deciding how good of a weapon it is.

Here are the greatest Fortnite guns ever made.

7. Tactical Submachine Gun (SMG)

The Tactical Submachine Gun (SMG) was first released in the early days of Chapter 1 and has barely seen the light of day since it was vaulted back in 2018. There is a reason for that too. This weapon was extremely accurate and powerful, especially for an SMG, and could absolutely shred through the competition.

The Tactical SMG is easily one of the best guns ever to be in Fortnite.

6. Drum Gun

You cannot have a list of the best Fortnite guns without including the Drum Gun. First released in Chapter 1, this weapon had a massive clip, allowing players to push through boxes with no stopping. Then, in Chapter 2, the game released a mythic version of the weapon, which was universally loved by everyone for its damage strength and fast fire rate.

The Drum Gun will go down in history as one of the greatest Fortnite guns ever.

5. Tactical Shotgun

Also introduced in Chapter 1 (I am seeing a pattern here), was the Tactical Shotgun. Fortnite has tried to replicate this weapon multiple times, but no other gun has been able to hit the mark that the Tactical Shotgun did. Its quick fire rate, but heavy damage, made it perfect for box fighting and more.

The Tactical Shotgun is historical within the Fortnite community and is easily one of the best guns to ever be in the game.

4. Burst Assault Rifle

The Burst Assault Rifle has seen many different variations within Fortnite, and each one was better than the last. While this gun originally had a three-shot burst, even its two-shot burst variant was extremely powerful and one of the last weapons you wanted fired at you. The gun has been in and out of the game since its release in Chapter 1, and will probably continue to find itself playable from time to time.

The Burst Assault Rifle is easily one of the greatest Fortnite guns ever to be in the game.

3. Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

Known for the unique clips players used to hit with it, the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle has been a fan favorite since the beginning. Not only was it the first Sniper Rifle to be in the game, but it has been known as the best ever since. The gun periodically gets added back into the loot pool every once in a while and is just as legendary each time as it was before.

The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle has stood the test of time as one of the greatest Fortnite guns ever made.

2. Assault Rifle

The Assault Rifle is a legendary gun in Fortnite. Its Epic and Legendary variants, known as the purple and gold Scar, are still known as the best secondary weapon to hold within the game. Its accuracy, fire rate, and power are all that make this weapon so useful when fighting. In the competitive world, the Assault Rifle is often considered the greatest Fortnite gun ever.

The Assault Rifle will always be known as one of the best Fortnite guns of all time.

1. Pump Shotgun

Hands down, the Pump Shotgun might be the most historical weapon to ever be in Fortnite. Between both the casual community and competitive community, this weapon was loved by everyone. Being able to take someone from 200 to zero health with one headshot was the greatest feeling. Fortnite has added new variants of the weapon into the game, but none have fit the bill that was provided with the original Pump Shotgun.

The Pump Shotgun is an easy number one pick for the best weapons to ever be in Fortnite.
