Best Weapons in Fortnite

Fortnite has a Lot of Weapons. Some Good, Some bad and Some Great. Add your Own and Vote what you Consider the Best.

The Top Ten

1 The Legendary Scar

The gun is just so balanced. While it is rare to find it is rewarding if you do find it. 36 body shot damage and 72 headshot damage, and great accuracy. It is also balanced because of it having a perfect fire rate giving players a decent amount of time to react, but you've already hit them enough to where you can most likely come out on top. This gun is just too good

I love it and the gun shoots so quick

This is a no brainer bro

Accurate. Decent damage. Recoil is easy to deal with.

2 The Legendary Rocket Launcher

When I first started playing in season 3, this gun was how I would kill john wicks with love ranger wings who built the twin towers

the best - AliHadiBaloch

Really good, does more than 1000 damage and it has splash damage

OP weapon, splash damage, Most deadly with defaults. Problem: Sometimes hard to find ammo

3 The Legendary Bolt Action Sniper

I'm an epic gamer an only use 360 no-scopes niji

I wish it could be permanently unvauted

R.I.P. in Peace gold bolt

Love snipers! Not very good with it yet, but it’s so powerful! - Userguy44

4 The Legendary Heavy Shotgun

It does hella load of damage and it has such low spread and also a super sonic rate of fire, it is so effective at kind of long range. It can also penetrate up to 14 people if they are 8n a straight line perfect if there is a squad in a line. OP

This weapon is OP buy far the best shotgun in the game and good with dance bombs =p

This gun sucks the max with a headshot GOLD heavy is 77. It is ridiculous - fwed

I prefer the blue pump shotgun, it does 2x damage than this - MaxPap

5 Bolt Sniper

Best sniper to one shot Got 5 kilos in a minute!

6 The Epic Tactical SMG

Must be top 3

264 DPS is better than an L scar - Unnamed Google User Remade

I wish the tactical SMG was still in the game. - sadical

I can solo squad with only this gun - fwed

7 Scar


Purple scar - WorldPuncher47592834


The blue m16 above this? Lmao

8 Homing Rocket Launcher

It is not even in the game it SUCKS

This doesn't exist though... - B1ueNew

It's so op and its called guided missile launcher

What I like about this is that it actually isn't overpowered, yet is very fun to use. Chasing players around with missiles and hitting them can be easy...but only if you are fight a default. The best (or maybe just the average) know that they can either block your incoming missile or get enough distance before it explodes. This creates a balance that determines who’s a better player: the rocket guider, or the runner.

9 Rare Pump Shotgun

It is the best

I think it deserves #3 no higher no lower

One shot one kill
And how are the heavy shotgun and the purple tac above this beast?

Super good gun

10 The Epic Tactical Shotgun

It went night night forever - sadical

Rip the epic tac

I think I shouldn't make my pizza

They removed it because it's so OP... - MaxPap


The Contenders

11 The Rare M16

Best Weapon

M16is 3 round burst ya dinguses

Simple to find and easy to use

It's actually an M4 Carbine, not an M16

1 Comment
12 Hand Cannon

Yo this gun is a wall breaker I switch between this and my pump for kills

Bro this thing shreds through wood

SO powerful

Better than a sniper

13 Uncommon Hunting Rifle

Good for no scopes


14 The Rare Semi Auto Pistol

Why is this on the list? I think you should swap it out for a suppressed pistol or hunting rifle instead - P-Bro-N-J

All pistol r semi auto expect the one in pubg P18C - JayJayPlayzzz

Why the h*** is this number six what do you mean I think the legendary bolt is the best gun

15 Infinity Gauntlet

I got to use it once! So cool!

This should be in


It's only in the LTM so does it count? - fwed

16 Blue Pump Shotgun

My favorite guns in fortnite are all the ones that need shells

Roses are red,
my pump is blue
it does 6 damage
this game is doo doo
Whoever created this list is an OG player

17 Minigun


It is so good ever since the buff, imagine without cool down in creative. - fwed

It's good for spamming if you have good aim. - B1ueNew

I'm with u JayJayPlayzzz

18 Compact SMG

This thing is a killing machine if you can aim unlike me

My favorite is not the compact SMG, but its still OP

You shoot awesomely well with this gun breee

Really f-in good

19 The Legendary Silenced Pistol

So good with it

This is the best gun.8 shots to kill someone with full shield and health.

Love the gun so much and it works as a sniper for me.

20 Scoped AR

Awesome for field gunners

Probably the worst long range gun in the game

Had to be better then regular AR

The best gun and don't deny it

21 Grenade Launchers
22 Drum Gun

Not good enough to beat a simple turtle tactic - fwed



What it was the best gun in the game

23 Legendary Guided Missile

OP #1 without question if they don’t need I.T very soon I.T will destroy the entire game

24 Port-A-fort

Extremely useful to have late game if you don't know how to build quickly or if you don't have materials. - MaxPap

I agree with the low on materials part but I think you still need to learn building.. - Qryzx

OH it's a weapon now... >:)
*ninja suffocated in a wall. that's low dude.*

25 Legendary Burst Assault Rifle
26 Epic Scar

What the flick

27 Clingers

If you hear someone coming in the house you're in, hide in a room and when he's there just put a clinger on him. And there you go, you 'sploded someone. - MaxPap

28 Impulse Grenades
29 Legendary Pump Shotgun

Huh its 38 it does 110 pure shot

Why this worse than purple tac shotty - fwed

This is OP with a dance grenande and I get dubs with this

30 Grenades
31 Thermal Ar

This thing op as frick

yea boi

32 The Legendary Heavy Sniper

Come on just think. Your in a duel with someone and your both the last ones standing. You both build a tower and try and snipe each other.
"I can't win this, I only have my SCAR! "
Then as if a miracle comes through, you notice your legendary heavy sniper sitting there idly saying,"Hello I'm here to be used."
You take it out then line up the headshot. Your opponent wouldn't know what hit them and seconds later you are doing the HYPE because you won.
So yeah the legendary heavy sniper. Destroys any material in one shot and in my opinion the greatest weapon ever - ImNotEagle

This is my all time favourite

Heavy sniper. AR. Tac shotgun. Rocket launcher.

33 The Legendary Grenade Launcher
34 Launch Pad
35 Green Pump Shotgun

Pumps are amazing. Should replace Tacs

R u serious?!? This should be top 3. If you are a god at fortnite like me the green pump can get u like 10 kills in 2 mins or less

36 Pickaxe

There is no point having common rare etc pickaxes they all do 20 damage

Best starting game weapon - fwed

This is epic

Why is this so low!? You can literally kill anyone with this, unless you suck!

37 Blue Burst Assault Rifle

This thing shreds better than any ar if have good aim

This does like 75 a hit it should be in the top 5.

38 Double Pump

It's hard not to kill someone with this - Unnamed Google User Remade

39 Legendary Compact Suppressed Submachine Gun

Compact suppressed is not even gun

That’s not a thing - sadical

LOVE IT - Diamondhunter123YT

40 Rare Tactical Shotgun
41 The Legendary Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle
42 The Rare Scoped Assault Rifle
43 Revolver

The common was bad but the uncommon and the rare was good

Amazing gun

Worst gun in the game

44 Bush
45 Blue Assault Rifle
46 Famas

47 Grappler

Is it really a weapon? - fwed


It's alright - B1ueNew

48 The Epic Heavy Shotgun

49 Legendary Semi-Auto Sniper
50 Common Pistol

Got killed a lot with these. - Userguy44

Oh my goodness these things are too op, need removed..

Too op needs removed

No joke, this thing can laser. It does 16 damage a shot and fires so quickly. Pistols are overlooked because they seem simple but they can actually SHRED. (though if u face a shotty or smg, lights out) - fwed
