The Top Ten

Easy for however you play close of mid but pretty good on for even though its not a sniper

Just cool

2 The Legendary Rocket Launcher

A noob who had started playing a week ago could easily get his first kill or first hit on a player with this (if the player is lucky enough). But this is about how good the weapon is, not how rare it is. I almost forgot to mention that rocket riding is one of the most fun ways to play around in the fame

Very easy to win if you have a Rocket Launcher. In late game, when everyone is building bases, just destroy them with your Rocket Launcher and then snipe them or shoot them with a rifle. - MaxPap

Fun fact: you may not believe this, but the purple RPG is more rare then the gold RPG because you can't find the purple one in supply drops or on the ground.

Really this is goosd

8 The Epic Tactical Shotgun

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

I think I shouldn't make my pizza

It's better then the pump in my opinion, slower reload time and higher dps

It's literally the number 1 item removed from the game it's to OPness - Popularmmos

9 The Rare M16

It's actually an M4 Carbine, not an M16

Simple to find and easy to use

M16is 3 round burst ya dinguses

Thank u M4s are fully auto M16s are 3 round bursts

10 Homing Rocket Launcher

It's so op and its called guided missile launcher

Awesomest is not a word. - mattstat716

No 75 damge

The Contenders

11 Rare Pump Shotgun

This is how I play fortnite when it comes to snipers I'm all about the hunting rifle but for shotguns I rock the pump

Lil pump does one shot and better than tactical

Most other guns are just the same as other - B1ueNew

YOUr doo doo

12 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

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

13 Hand Cannon

It's like a god revolver

Better than a sniper

It's ultimate

14 Uncommon Hunting Rifle
15 Infinity Gauntlet

Scar, rpg, bolt sniper are legendary but this is MYTHICAL

This Weapon Means Game Over

Bro this is the most overpowered thin Fortnite has ever added in history. It goes above any gun ever added like the scar, bolt action sniper rifle, and even the blue suppressed smg. If you are confused why the blue smg, it’s because epic games did a massive buff on it around July 2018 making it more overpowered than the scar. One more thing, this weapon is NOT Mythic it is legendary just like any other weapon in Fortnite, although in save the world there is a Mythic rank for your heroes but not for guns. Good day.

OK lets go home

16 The Legendary Silenced Pistol

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

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

17 Scoped AR

Probably the worst long range gun in the game

Had to be better then regular AR

The best gun and don't deny it

Awesome for field gunners

18 Minigun

Boom house gone

Very good for destroying other people's bases in late game - MaxPap

It should be dam higher

Should be called baseripper

24 Port-A-fort

28 Grenades
29 Impulse Grenades

43 Legendary Semi-Auto Sniper
44 Boogie Bomb

45 Bush
46 Common Pistol

It's almost as good as a scar

This weapon is the best in the game. it's been used by every pro at least once, meaning it's a pro weapon. even if you are outgunned by someone else, fortnite statistics have proven that the player that eliminated you will have the curse of ligma, thus preventing them from winning the game. what's better than a weapon that prevents others from winning?

47 Revolver

Worst gun in the game

Amazing gun

48 Double Pump
49 Burst Rifle
50 Jetpack
