Pump shotgun in Fortnite. In this article, I want to talk about pump shotgun in Fortnite and compare it with charge and combat shotguns. The pump obviously is fantastic. It is really clear of which is superior, which is obviously the pump. If you watch any pros play today, the majority of them were all one to use the pump. Not just because of the nostalgia, but honestly because it was just bare. You can one pump with the purple. The range is obviously not as good as the other shotguns. Let’s be real, that doesn’t matter. When it comes to something, that can one pump you and most players are fighting their shotguns up close.
I’m pretty sure the combat only comes in the blue version on the floor.
If you want to go to the purple or gold versions, you’ll have to upgrade it, which isn’t worth the materials. The gold version does 82 damage to the head, while the blue does 75, and all of them kill in three shots, so it’s not worth upgrading for. If you just fire it once without charging it, it will do much less damag. There will be a long delay, which will make building and box fighting difficult while you’re trying to fight with it. The charge rover does have a range advantage, but I don’t think it’s worth it compared to the pump because the pump can do things faster and better.
With a pump, a headshot from two tiles away does 79 damage.
With a combat, it only does 65. So, if you’re two tiles away or more, you can do much better with the combat. If you’re too far away, you’re better off using an assault rifle. If you want to use the combat, the best way to do it is to either use it like a tactical shotgun. You can get in someone’s face or keep your distance and keep hitting them with those high-damage shots. Sure, you can one pump someone with the blue charge, and the blue pump’s max shot is 180. In all honesty, most people switch to their ar or smg after max pumping someone. So, I don’t see this as much of a problem. When I asked on Twitter, most people agreed that this wasn’t a big deal.
The pump is just the superior weapon, everyone seems to be preferring.
Yes, all three these shotguns are really viable. it’s really personal preference and down to the person’s playstyle i’m just basing this off of day one saying that these pumps are going to be way more viable and way more consistently to use but if you’re really good with the charge and not so good of the pump you’re good at your spacing you’re good at using it.
