Vaulted Weapons in Fortnite

The Fire Trap made its way to Fortnite in Chapter 2, Season 4 as an uncommon trap. It fired fireballs that cause 50 damage on contact with a player. It could travel for three tiles but launched only when a player was in reach.

The uncommon and rare variants of the Scoped Assault Rifle are no longer a part of Fortnite. It boasted a 100% accuracy, and no recoil, but had slow mobility and inefficient close range.

With a slightly wider spread than the Charge Shotgun, the Pump Shotgun was one of the most powerful weapons in the game. It dealt slow but extensive damage at close range.

Weapons finally coming back with the latest season

The Tactical Shotgun has a headshot multiplier of x1.5, and fires faster than the Pump Shotgun or the Charged Shotgun. Over the years, it has gone through a series of vaults and unvaults. Every variant of the Tactical Shotgun returns again with season 5 of Fortnite.

The Sub-Machine guns in Fortnite have a significant addition in the form of P90. It has a x1.75 headshot multiplier but lacks first shot accuracy.
