The pistol has always been one of the weakest weapons in Fortnite. Not only does it deal very little damage to your opponents, but it also features a semi-automatic fire pattern. It is also one of the most despised weapons in the game due to its extremely high spawn rate resulting in many players being eliminated at the start of the game itself.

The hand cannon returned to Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 7. This weapon is essentially a hard-hitting pistol that favors bullet damage at the expense of fire rate. While the hand cannon can be extremely effective from medium or long-range for skilled players, in a 1v1 combat situation it has far more weaknesses than strengths.

One of the best utility weapons in the game comes in the form of the Recon Scanner. It shoots orbs that provide data on an enemy’s current location. However, when it comes down to a matter of damage, the Recon Scanner scores a big zero.

When Epic Games introduced the pulse rifle into Fortnite, they were probably trying to emulate Bungie’s work on Destiny 2. However, the gun just ended up becoming a less accurate version of the Heavy Assault Rifle. Guns like the Rail Gun or regular assault rifle are far more beneficial for the meta of the game.
