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

Trivia

  • The Common through Rare AR's appear to be based off the M16 rifle, while the Epic and Legendary variants are based off of the SCAR, most likely the SCAR-L. Because of this, the community often calls these weapons by these names.
    • Likewise, the Epic and Legendary variants of the Burst AR are often called "FAMASes", do to the resemblance to the FAMAS, while the Common through Rare variants resemble an IMI Galil .
    • Finally, the Scoped AR seems to loosely resemble an AK-12 or H&K G36 that has been modified to act more like a DMR (designated marksman rifle), which combines certain elements of both assault rifles and sniper rifles.
  • The Epic and Legendary models for the Assault Rifle have several gashes and scars cut into them, a reference to the gun which the model is based on.

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 Suppressed Pistol and Hand Cannon can be considered spiritual successors to the Pistol and Revolver, respectively.
