Underrated Weapons in Fortnite

Some weapons in Fortnite just don't get enough love...

The Top Ten

1 Remote Explosives

Has highest explosion radius of any explosive in game and controlled demolition. - kuledude

I like nuggets from McDonalds australia. Yummy chicken nuggets.

Been nerfed so hard - ethanharrisx

1 nerf wasnt enough.
c4 is super good

2 Minigun

Not best gun to use in open or when opponent has shot on you, but is great for taking down forts or sneaking up on someone with its fast fire rate. - kuledude

3 Suppressed SMG

Won't hold ground against more powerful guns, but make a great compliment to a shotgun. - kuledude

4 Hunting Rifle

More accurate and easier to get off a quick shot than a bolt-action sniper rifle. - kuledude

Great for peeking

Boom 1, boom 2...
boom 10

5 Heavy Shotgun

More range, and sometimes higher damage than pump, and faster in between shots. - kuledude

This is not underatted

6 Grenades

Can cause more damage than you would think if you throw 3 at once. - kuledude

One shot to an unshielded player
Is actually kinda good

7 Burst Assault Rifle

Not always the best gun since it doesn't has a steady fire rate, but a triple shot to the head can be devastating to an enemy. - kuledude

8 Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle

Doesn't do as much damage as a bolt, but usually is a kill on a head shot and leaves more margain for error and it's possible to get off another shot after a miss before the enemy starts building. - kuledude

9 Revolver

Does over 100 damage on head shots and has better range than shotgun, making it a decent substitute. Not as good as a shotgun, but still effective. - kuledude

10 Suppressed Pistol

People don't use this weapon, but if you have the accuracy and a good trigger finger, you will dominate. - ethanharrisx

Does high damage on headshots with a fast fire rate and is very quiet so it won't give up your position to others. - kuledude

The Contenders

11 Scoped AR

Very good for long range sniper battles

12 Thermal Scoped AR
13 Hand Cannon
14 Tactical Shotgun

This shotgun is not as good as the pump, but if you come across it while looting with no alternative, don't pass it up. With a faster fire rate and shorter reload time than the pump and an adequate body-shot damage, this is a good option for close encounters (of the first kind.) Plus, the headshot is absolutely LETHAL.

15 Gold Scar

It's so lit

"Under rated"

16 Double Barrel Shotgun

Absolutely deadly if used at close range (you have to be very very close)

17 Common Pistol
