– The Colors of Weapons
Fortnite is a very colorful game. But in the case of weapons, the colors that we see in the icons at the bottom of the screen are not quite complete. Each color represents the rarity of each weapon. As this color changes, the damage and spray capacity changes as well. Check out the table below that demonstrates how colors work from worst (gray) to best (gold).
- Ordinary - Grey
- Unusual - Green
- Raro - Blue
- Epic - Purple
- legendary - Orange
- Mythical - Gold
The Mythic category is reserved for very rare in-game items, which are only added in events. A good example was the Infinity Gauntlet, added in the event where your character transforms into Thanos from the movie Avengers: Infinity War.
– What is the best Shootgun (shotgun) in Fortnite?
Unlike other shooting games, Fortnite places a special emphasis on shootguns. Thanks to the building mechanics, it's common to stay in small areas with other players. In this scenario, shootguns are excellent.
Out of them all, the Pump Shootgun and the Tactical Gun are the best. The Tactical Shotgun is semi-automatic and has a fast rate of fire, while the Pump Shotgun (famously “fucking”) has a more powerful shot but a slower rate of fire. The Pump is a favorite shotgun for many players, but it can be difficult to master for newbies.
Recently, Epic added a short double-barreled shotgun. It's kind of funny that the developer has responded to the current shootgun meta by adding another shootgun. The weapon came very powerful in the color "purple", with 143 damage when fired at close range. Basically you can take down an enemy with full health and shield with two shots in a row.
– What is the best Rifle in Fortnite?
In any online shooter the AR, Assault Rifles or simply Rifles are the most popular weapons in the game. Ideal for medium and long distance.
Fortnite is no different. In the game, you will find color reproductions of AK and SCAR. They are the two strongest rifles in the game. The AK, as in any game, has a very bad recoil. But if you master it, this weapon will be great. The SCAR is that average rifle that is good in any situation.
Epic has recently added new weapons like the Thermal Scoped AR. It's a Rifle with a Thermal sight. This weapon is fantastic for long range, as it allows you to see enemies well highlighted in the crosshairs (thanks to the heat signature). Ideal to give that 360 view and see if there are any players around. However, the recoil is horrible. Be sure to just tap the button to fire one shot and not fire multiple ones.
Finally, we have the Scoped AR. It's basically an M4 rifle with a 4X scope on it that only appears in the Blue and Purple versions. For long-distance shooting, thanks to aim assist, this rifle is excellent, the best in the game. But if you don't get it, you can get by with a SCAR and a Sniper Rifle without any problems.
– Are Rocket Launchers any good?
Rocket Launchers are one of the best weapons in Fortnite. Ideal not only for taking down another player, but also for destroying buildings.
As in any shooting game, pay attention to the aim and where the rocket will hit. At long range, try to hit an enemy and their building. At medium range, aim for the ground where your enemy walks. But be careful not to use in close range, you can blow up your character.
– Best Fortnite Sniper Rifles?
When it comes to giving that OTA from afar, the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle, nicknamed just the AWM is the ideal weapon. It is only available in orange, which says it all. A bullet to the head and "bye" is 240 damage.
This Sniper is already equipped with an 8X scope. In other words, the complete package for long-distance shooting fans.
- And the other weapons
The other weapons are good in the "epic color", however, you can't think about reaching the end with them. Surely your opponents will find better weapons (mentioned here) and will have a huge advantage against you at the end of each game.
