Earlier this month, the developers vaulted the Grey Charge Shotgun from Fortnite because it was too weak as compared to the other Charge Shotguns in the game. However, some NPCs in the Chapter 2 Season 5 map still offer a rare chance of dropping the gun.

SypherPK not only acquired the gun from an NPC but tried to fetch a victory royale with it. Even though the streamer is not a big fan of shotguns, he successfully completed some bounties and dominated the game with a Double Barrel-Grey Charge Shotgun combo.

“Vaulted Charge Shotgun just destroyed this lobby. I hope this thing stays vaulted, cause it’s just too dangerous in my hands,” boasted SypherPK after he won a game with eight eliminations.

SypherPK has a long history of taking on Fortnite challenges

Winning a game with a Grey Charge Shotgun is certainly a feat that not many players can achieve. Having played Fortnite since its release, SypherPK could do so effortlessly.

Sypher leaves no opportunity to spice things up with such unusual challenges. A few days back, the streamer surprisingly won a game by only using NPCs, and also broke a world record while recording a challenge with fellow creators.

Another big name to continue this trend is Ninja, who tried out some “impossible” Fortnite challenges recently. While these creators make these challenges look easy, their exceptional skills are a delight to watch for fans around the world.
