The Top Ten

1 The Pickaxe/Gathering Tool

It's not even meant to be a weapon. It is supposed to be a gathering tool for materials...

Lol nubs

At least they buffed it in the most recent patch update

Its not that bad since it does 20 damage now

It’s annoying when players panic and start hitting you with it.

8 The Common Burst Assault Rifle

This gun is so bad. It sucks at long range and close combat

You can do 10 damage every 5 seconds, whats not to love?

I won't even pick it up at the start of the match

Frick the burst AR. I would gladly take a common m16 over a blue pile of crap. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

9 The Common Silenced SMG

Its like poking a guy with a stick blindfolded and it eats the ammo very fast. Worst thing you could find at the start of the match.

Disgusting aim, needs to be buffed or removed entirely

It's been buffed so this should go lower

9 dmg/hit and bad aim.
not very good

10 The Uncommon SMG

I love the the uncommon SMG


The Contenders

11 Clinger Grenade

I've gotten tons of kills with it. In my opinion, I think it's a pretty good grenade

Same apart form the fact than the blast radius can kill you through walls. - monkeyman999604

12 Common Pistol

Should be the worst anyway

My first kill Was with a common pistol

Got 2 kills with it today

Good if used right in early game
I suck with it though - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

13 Quad Launcher
14 Double Barrel Shotgun

Stupid takes forever to load...

15 The Epic Scoped Assault Rifle

People would think this is trash, but no
If you have or didn't see a sniper but you saw a scoped ar and the enemy base is far away you have two choices:
Choice 1: launchpad to enemy base and get shot midair
Choice 2: take the scoped ar and shoot the enemy or its base with the scoped ar and finally maybe you can kill the enemy.
Any way please choose between choice 1 or 2
Tell me in the comments below!

Best scoped weapon besides bolt-action

Low accuracy, low rate of fire, low damage. It sucks!

it sucks

16 Uncommon Revolver

How is this above the SCAR, like what the heck, the scar is awesome

Poor accuracy and slow shooting

Slow shooting Costs a lot if if u miss it doent even do much damage

17 The Rare SMG

Just Horrible

18 Gray burst AR

It is a pretty good weapon but not too good

19 Common Revolver

How the heck did this get lower than its uncommon form, and the legendary scar? It seems like every gun is hated nowadays.

Worst gun in game. Terrible Accuracy, terrible reload time, even if you DO manage to land a shot, it doesn't do enough damage to do much harm.

Even the storm troopers could aim better than this pile of garbage

Wow the srtorm trooper burn is such a burn but its true

20 The Common Semi Auto Pistol

Trash boi also wut why common smg we are in season 6

21 Legendary Scar

Its all round good but everyone goes for you and it eats at you bullets like mad

Someone put it here as a troll

It's the best weapon dude

Hmm - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

22 Hunting Rifle

Completely useless

Better than bolt

It's actually pretty good!

It actually works pretty good, in all honesty. It’s not that bad once you get past the fact that it has no scope. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

24 The Uncommon Tactical Shotgun


But y though

25 Pistol
26 Jetpack

It only lasts a few seconds If you use It a lot.

27 Bolt Action Sniper



28 Guided Missile

Wut? This ain’t trash it better than you

29 Zapranon

Best gun to have

30 Green Hunting Rifle

This is just awesome unless you're against a purple semi-auto or something

31 Boogie Bomb


When I was a noob I thought it did damage🤯 still the best weapon in the game

I got kills with this. No joke 😂

32 Common Tactical Shotgun

It is so garbage and only does 9 damage on headshots. Get rid of it EPIC GAMES YOU stupid forTNITE MAKER

33 Purple Scar

I think the purple scar is an amazing weapon

34 Smoke Grenade

It is not long they need to make it 10 sec

They suck bad

If you are around a ton of enemies then you can throw the smoke and get the revive in but otherwise its trash, or its good to run away. - monkeyman999604

35 Minigun

It's only for base destroying and it's useless for solo

Ah. Defaults with miniguns. You never know what will happen...
You just know it will be stupid and hilarious. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

36 Trap


37 Thermal Scope

Only good for spying on people through walls and bases

38 Suppressed Pistol

When I see the legendary glow and only find this I want to shoot myself with it instead of the enemy. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

I can never get a kill with it

Worse than silence smg in just about everything except reload time. Doesn’t live up to epic legendary standards

DuDu Gun

39 Zach Snow

This guy is absolute ass at the game. If you could ban him and never let him play.

40 Uncommon Pistol

Worst ever

41 The Impulse Grenade

It is bad yeet

42 Handcannon

Pretty much the revolver all over again, just a little more accurate.

I SUCK WITH THESE - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

43 Legendary Bolt Action

This weapon is useless becuase you have to reload after every shot and it is not even that good. Go back to call of duty dumb noob bolt action sucks

You may have to reload after every shot but if you hit a head shot then it's a kill and two body shots, but with the semi auto it's a max two shot and at the least a four shot I think your outrageous. - monkeyman999604

It’s is insane

44 Normal Grenade

I think this has its ups and downs mainly because you can get lucky bounces and you can get unlucky bounces it's just how it works. - monkeyman999604

I don't like grenades they almost never do damage for me

45 White Tactical Shotgun

It does 250 head and 100 body, why is this in the game it doesn't do enough damage to kill an opponent, please remove this from fortnite.

46 Dual Pistols

It’s jush two pistols mix together but still better than you and your mom

Bad grammar and spelling and making mom jokes, yep definitely a dumb fortnite kid - B1ueNew

47 Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle

Awful - B1ueNew

48 RPG

I hate RPG now because when guided missile is removed and RPG released. Guided missile is better than RPG. RPG is worst weapon ever and people avoid it and low damage. Lower damage than sniper

One of the best in game by far

Best gun in game

How tf is this on here? - Fat_Turtle_Gamez

49 Grenade Launcher

It is good for taking down bases

50 Pump Shotgun

Only 5 ammo and slow shooting

Yes but its consistent you can land a 180 head shot and then its just one more shot, but with the tac it does like 13 damage to the body and 26 to the head. - monkeyman999604

Terrible if you’re bad, amazing if you’re good. Personally, I prefer heavy to pump, but that’s just me. - Fat_Turtle_Gamez
