Epic Games is adding the Epic and Legendary variants of the Tactical Shotgun into the game.
Fortnite Tactical Shotgun Variants Are Coming
Epic Games continues to release updates every week, and this time it’s about the Tactical Shotgun. Fortnite Battle Royale already has a massive weapon. But this is clearly not enough for Epic Games. Honestly, at this point, another shotgun addition is going to overflow the shotgun use. Therefore, Epic are adding new variants to the game.
The news came via an in-game message to the players. It does look very different from the current Tactical Shotgun. Here’s a picture of what players see in-game:
It does look extremely nice. However, we do not have the current stats on these new variants. Therefore we can’t say for sure if they will be worth using or not. But a Legendary version will be a lot closer to a Pump shotgun damage and a faster rate of fire. Therefore, it might annoy some players. Adding another shotgun to the game is also not welcomed many. Of course, nobody wants to get eliminated by a lucky headshot to a player with 10 health.

The Fortnite Battle Royale World Cup Finals are coming close. Therefore, we do hope that Epic Games made the calculations for the shotgun’s damage. Because in the hands of a Pro Playe,r one of these Legendary Tactical Shotguns will be extremely effective. On the other hand, there is a chance that one of the shotguns, or at least, their variants, are getting vaulted with this update. Epic Games vaulting system sometimes works great, but sometimes it backfires like taking a beloved weapon from players. Hopefully, Epic Games gave this a nice thought before adding it into the game.
