Is The Pump Shotgun Back In Fortnite?

This weapon is back in Fortnite's Season 6!

As part of the unvaulted weapons, this fan favourite shotgun has returned to cause havoc in the new season.

This will take the place of the Tactical Shotgun, Charge Shotgun and Lever Action Shotgun.

The Pump Shotgun uses Shells as ammo, has a headshot multiplier of x2 and fires ten pellets in a spread to deal damage.

PUMP-PUMP: The Pump Shotgun returns to Fortnite


Firing from a limited magazine, the Pump Shotgun outputs immense damage up close, but very slowly.

It is completely lacking in ranged combat ability, because of a wider spread of the bullets, and does not constantly shoot when the trigger is held down.

It comes in five variants - Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary.

This weapon originally released in Chapter 1.
