The Top Ten

1 The Legendary Scar

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

Easy headshot damage ping ping

Really,it's just as good as the green assault rifle

2 The Legendary Rocket Launcher

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

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

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.

8 Homing Rocket Launcher

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.

Awesomest is not a word. - mattstat716

13 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

17 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

18 Compact SMG

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

Really f-in good

19 The Legendary Silenced Pistol

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 Legendary Guided Missile

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

23 Drum Gun

Not good enough to beat a simple turtle tactic - fwed



What it was the best gun in the 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 Grenades
30 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

31 Thermal Ar

This thing op as frick

yea boi

32 The Legendary Grenade Launcher
33 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.

34 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

35 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!

36 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.

37 Legendary Compact Suppressed Submachine Gun

Compact suppressed is not even gun

That’s not a thing - sadical

LOVE IT - Diamondhunter123YT

38 Launch Pad
39 Rare Tactical Shotgun
40 The Legendary Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle
41 The Rare Scoped Assault Rifle
42 Revolver

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

Amazing gun

Worst gun in the game

43 Double Pump
44 Famas

The second best gun after bolt

It is to op

45 Grappler

Is it really a weapon? - fwed


It's alright - B1ueNew

46 Legendary Semi-Auto Sniper
47 Bush
48 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
