For Save The World weapons, see Weaponry (Save the World).This page lists all weapons and weapon stats for Fortnite: Battle Royale. A critical hit (aka headshot) deals double the base damage. Shotguns, due to the spread of the weapon, will have varying damage outputs depending on shot accuracy and distance from the target. When comparing damage to DPS, remember that a high damage rating won't always equal a high damage per second due to varying firing rate and reload speeds.

Rarity

While exploring the map, players can discover weapons, each with varying levels of rarity. Stats depend on rarity, ranging from common to legendary. Rarity and its corresponding color, from weakest to strongest, goes as follows:

Battle Royale Weapon Grades
  • Common
  • Uncommon
  • Rare
  • Epic
  • Legendary

Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are fully automatic weapons in Fortnite. They deal moderate to high damage, and have a moderate fire rate. They use medium ammo, and can be found in all rarities from common to legendary. There are two main types, the regular, and the burst. The regular Assault Rifle is fully automatic and does more damage per bullet than the burst. The Burst Assault does less damage per bullet than the regular Assault Rifle, but if the player can get one hit, it is likely that at least one of the other two will as well.

Pistols

For schematics, see the schematics page.

Pistols are short to medium range weapons with low to moderate damage and a small amount of recoil. Reload speeds tend to be quick while fire rate is either quick (for Pistols) or slow (for Revolvers and Hand Cannons), with weapons using anywhere from Light to Heavy Bullets.

Notes

  • Go for headshots whenever possible, especially using the crouch plus aim down sights technique. This is especially important with pistols that have a long delay between shots.

Trivia

  • The Pistol appears to resemble an M1911; however, the M1911 could only carry 7 bullets in one cartridge, whereas the Pistol carries 16.
    • The Suppressed Pistol shares a striking resemblance to the FN FNP 45 with a holographic sight (like the Heavy Shotgun) and a suppressor.
    • Likewise, the Hand Cannon is distinctly based off of the Desert Eagle (or Deagle), a handgun that is infamous for its incredible power (hence the name). Because of this, many players will call the Hand Cannon by its real-life name.
    • The Revolver looks like a Colt Navy mixed with Python.
  • The Suppressed Pistol and Hand Cannon can be considered more powerful versions of the Pistol and Revolver, respectively.
