Top 5 Fortnite: Battle Royale weapons – a list with my favorites and the reasons why I think these are the best.
M16 (Assault Rifle)
If you want a relatively common weapon, that is also a perfect all-rounder, M16 is something accessible to everyone. From a short distance, thanks to its damage and accuracy, you can easily eliminate opponents, using just a few accurate shots. But, when it comes to long range battles, this weapon can create discomfort; the bullet spread becomes too extensive and you can easily lose control on the weapon. The problem can be solved, though, by slowly pressing the weapon’s trigger. This needs some accurate shots in order to put down the opponent.
Pump/ Tactical Shotgun
Both Pump and Tactical are the perfect weapons for dominating the close-range duels; an absolute necessity for any inventory.
The Pump Shotgun has a slower fire rate because it’s very powerful. An accurate shot in the enemy’s head can eliminate him. Missing with a shotgun like Pump can ruin all the game, because the enemy will end up with plenty of time to eliminate you.
The Tactical Shotgun has a high fire rate and can create significant damage for the opponent. Plus, you can continuously jump around your enemy and take shots to eliminate him.
Bolt Action Sniper Rifle
It’s essential to have a weapon like Bolt Action Sniper Rifle, for taking out long range targets. This weapon can significantly increase your chances of winning the game. A headshot with this weapon will instantly eliminate the opponent. Of course, you’ll need a lot of practice to be able to do this. After a while, anyone can be able to pull such a victorious shot.
Think of how useful this weapon can prove to be. It is used more as a tool rather than as a weapon. Why? This kind of weapon creates multiple damage, which can be very useful sometimes for destroying an enemy fort. Always remember that ammunition is very hard to find for this weapon, so the best thing you can do is collect as much rocket ammo as possible. You never know what will happen next in Battle Royale!
SCAR (Assault Rifle)
This weapon is by far the strongest in the game! It’s simply a weapon that will handle any situation you can encounter in a battle. It’s strong in every regard, like damage, accuracy and precise long-range shots.
