Fortnite introduces a new shotgun and an exotic weapon

It is no surprise that shotguns have been an essential part of Fortnite from day one of its release. Popular streamer SypherPK believes that they are the “core gun” in the game. Just to name a few, these include the Pump Shotgun, the Charge Shotgun, and the Double-Barrel Shotgun.

With the update, the developers have added a new name to this list, the Lever Action Shotgun. With a single well-aimed shot, this gun can knock down opponents and has the potential to be a fan favorite.

While the latest Lever Action Shotgun is part of the regular loot pool, the newly introduced Hop Rock Dualies belong to the exotic-class. Exotic weapons in Fortnite stand out among the others owing to their explosive damage and stats.

The developers have even extended the discount on the price of these weapons; hence, players should make no delay in trading bars with the NPCs and get their hands on the Hop Rock Dualies.

This reduces the possibility of editing errors and ensures that players get the right piece every time.
