Fortnite might be a silly game where silly characters shoot each other with silly weapons on top of silly forts but it can still have its serious moments, at least if you really want to win.
As a ninja once said “the phrase ‘it's just a game’ is such a weak mindset,” etc so if you don’t want to upset somebody with internet presence or yourself, you’ll want to know what the best weapons are in the game.
Fortnite: What is the Strongest Gun in Fortnite?
Believe it or not, there are fans who take the damage of Fortnite weapons seriously because they want to be the best and need the best equipment to do that.
According to many fans the Rapid Fire SMG, the legendary kind at least, is currently the best weapon in the game thanks to plenty of ammo, all of which deal a ton of damage.
Even after a good amount of patches, it seems like few weapons are better than the legendary Rapid Fire SMG.
Believe it or not, the weapon was so strong that Epic Games had to vault it for a while but the weapon was eventually made available to the public again, with fans being able to make the Rapid Fire SMG through crafting.
That obviously takes a lot of grinding, which is easier when you have a Battle Pass, but once you’ve upgraded it enough, few people will get in your way.
Unless it’s Thanos but that guy hasn’t appeared in Fortnite for the longest time and thank goodness for that, he broke the game.
While having the Rapid Fire SMG is great for mowing down foes, keep in mind that it does not make you invincible so when you die, you’re dead for a good amount of time.
It will be interesting to see if Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 6 decides to change things up by making a new weapon that’s even better.
Fortnite is now available on the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
