On the flip side, Jack “CouRage” Dunlop has discovered the “biggest disappointment” of the season already.

Changes in the weapon arsenal of Fortnite

Over the years, Epic Games has never failed to alter the game meta by adding and removing certain weapons. Accordingly, the developer has now removed prominent weapons like the Pump Shotgun, and brought back the Tactical Shotgun, Charge Shotgun, and Double-Barrel.

Epic introduced the Charge Shotgun in Chapter 2 Season 3 as a replacement for the Pump Shotgun. Ever since, the weapon has gone through a series of vaults and unvaults.

Most recently, the Fortnitemares 2020 update removed the weapon from the game; however, it is back with the latest season.

Why is the Charge Shotgun a bone of contention?

Along with a headshot multiplier of x1.5, the Charge Shotgun boasts the following damage statistics:

  • Common: 80/102
  • Uncommon: 85/127
  • Rare: 89/134
  • Epic: 94/141
  • Legendary: 98/148

The gun has a 0.85 fire rate and a long reload time.

As for now, the Fortnite community seems divided on the inclusion of Charge Shotgun in the game. While some players feel that the gun requires skill and proper aiming, others feel that it easily breaks the meta with easy one-shot kills. Certainly, CouRage is a part of the latter faction.

Also, a lot of fans believe that CouRage should not comment on Fortnite since he does not stream or play the game anymore. A lot of his fellow streamers like Nickmercs, TimTheTatman and Cloakzy have returned to the game. Do you think CouRage will follow their lead and return to Fortnite?
