New Heavy Shotgun is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale

The in-game news feed on Fortnite Battle Royale has been updated by Epic Games: It’s telling us that a new Legendary Heavy Shotgun is on it’s way!

As we all know, Epic Games has been very keen on keeping new updates coming on a regular base. It’s one of the main reasons why the game is so popular. That, in combination with great communication to their community, fast fixes and a game which is unbelievably fun to play, make for great success.




There’s no actual release date yet for the new shotgun, but out of experience, it’s probably going to be added as part of the next big patch that’ll be hitting the game.

We don’t know much yet about the new shotgun. It does come with a brief description, saying: “Pump shotgun with a large magazine. Fires slugs for medium-range effectiveness” and that it will only be available in Legendary (Gold) and Epic (Purple) versions.

Some of Fortnite’s community members who’ve read the description have dubbed the Heavy Shotgun as a “pump on steroids”.
