The Best Weapons To Use In Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1

Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 is here, and with it a ton of new weapons and items for players to test out and eliminate the competition with. Many older fan favorites are gone in place of newer, updated versions. Even staples like the standard AR and Pistol are gone.

Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Weapons Tier List

There are a good amount of weapons available in Fortnite that you can choose from. However, not all weapons work out effectively in most scenarios so it's good to know which weapon to pick.

That being said, here's a detailed ranking of all the weapons that you will find in Fortnite.

  1. MK-Seven Assault Rifle
  2. Stinger SMG
  3. Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle
  4. Grenade Launcher
  5. Sidearm Pistol
  6. Ranger Assault Rifle
  7. Auto Shotgun
  8. Striker Pump Shotgun

Tier 1

The weapons in this list are the ones you can trust blindly.

However, if you manage to use them correctly, you'll end up scoring a frag or two in every gunfight.

Although the chances of getting a victory royale depend highly upon how you use these weapons in a gunfight, you will stand a chance of winning if you use them properly.

  • MK-Seven Assault Rifle
  • Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

Tier 2

The weapons in this tier are reliable as well, but there's a slight learning curve.

Although these weapons are good, not everyone will run for these weapons in the first instance.

For example, you're in the middle of an extremely close gunfight within a confined space. Using the grenade launcher here will score you a kill, yes. But it will kill you too.

  • Grenade Launcher
  • Sidearm Pistol
  • Auto Shotgun
  • Stinger SMG

Tier 3

These weapons are the ones that most loopers stay away from.

you might want to go for these weapons if you don't have any other alternative. Although they do pack a punch, their accuracy even at close range, is equivalent to putting the tail on a donkey while being blindfolded.

  • Striker Pump Shotgun
  • Ranger Assuault Rifle

No Tier

There are some weapons/items in the game that are more functional tools than actual offensive weapons. Items Tents that allow players to rest or even store weapons and items for a future match are really useful, and more often than not worth keeping an inventory slot open for!

The Best Weapon for the Job

And with that, we come to an end with our weapon tier list. Now, the weapons stacked in here are based upon our experience with them.

So feel free to choose any weapon you come across. Don't let this guide influence you. Everyone has their own playstyle so there's a high chance that some Tier 3 weapons will be useful in a particular playstyle.
