Published 12/06/2020, 10:25 AM EST


Fortnite Season 5 rolled out changes to the map, XP system, weapons nerfs & buffs, and added a secret Mandalorian quest. The changes to the map might have received a lukewarm reaction, while the new XP system is winning the fans over. Season 5 is looking to take the franchise to unprecedented heights of success by partnering up with NFL and Twitch in an upcoming streameer bowl charity tournament.

The Dragon shotgun of Fortnite is hauntingly powerful

Getting one of these bad boys is easy. Just spawn at the edge of the map, as shown by SypherPK in the video, and challenge the NPC for a duel. If you get knocked back, then it confirms they have that weapon. Proceed to kill the NPC, take the gun, and it’s time to rain hell.

The significant buff allows the players to engage at a much longer distance along with a respectable 150 damage per shot on the body. It deals fire damage to the enemies with every shot you connect, and the thing about extra damage is it’s always helpful. If you are feeling crisp or how what they call feeling ‘cracked’ you can deal upwards of 190 with a headshot from close range.

The limitations of Dragon shotgun

The only drawback of running the Dragon Shotgun would be the insane 4 seconds reload. The gun has a magazine size of 4, and after every shot, it takes a bit of time to load the next one. So run this gun with a follow-up secondary weapon that can be literally anything, even another shotgun.

The improved damage and range will compensate for the low rate of fire, as the weapon is going to assure you a kill every time it connects with the enemy.
