Fortnite Combat Shotgun Is Here. Pump Shotgun Vaulted

Fortnite Combat Shotgun

Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 started today. Players were waiting eagerly for the new season to unfold. So what has changed exactly?

The Season map looks relatively the same. However, there are changes that will make the gameplay more fun like Slipstreams. But Fortnite Battle Royale is known for their gun variety. The game has a lot of weapons and sometimes some favorite guns can be vaulted when a new gun comes along. Last Season we have seen many guns vaulted. However, none of them was as drastic as Fortnite Battle Royale Season 9 opening day. Today we have seen a new shotgun called the Fortnite Combat Shotgun coming in and the iconic Pump Shotgun vaulted.

Combat Shotgun Performance
So how does the new Fortnite combat shotgun perform? Well, the combat shotgun shots fast with a tight spread. This semi-automatic shotgun holds 10 shells. The combat shotgun fires 9 pellets with 73 damage for Rare 77 for Epic and 81 damage for the legendary variant. However, the headshot multiplier is x1.70. This means a single headshot will not take out an enemy with a full shield in close range.
On top of this, Tactical Shotguns are also getting damage to increase. Their damage is increased from 66/70/74 to 71/75/79. In all honesty, both of these shotguns are very similar, however, the Fortnite Combat Shotgun has a tighter spread.
Grenades are getting unvaulted also. But that’s not it. There’s a bunch of other items that are getting the vault.
  • Clingers
  • Buried Treasure
  • Pump Shotgun
  • Poison Dart Trap
  • Scoped Revolver
  • Suppressed Assault Rifle
  • Thermal Assault Rifle
  • Balloons
All of these will be vaulted as well.

Here is a look at, Youtuber Akaidan TV who includes a specific video of the new Fortnite Combat Shotgun:

The new gun Combat Shotgun is certainly interesting. However, Fortnite is becoming a shotgun game rather than a Battle Royale. We will see how the pro’s will react to this.
