Two new shotguns are being added to Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode this week.

Both an Epic and Legendary variation of the Pump Shotgun are being added in this week’s v6.31 update.

The shotgun is an upgrade of the Uncommon and Rare Pump Shotgun and is expected to have a low rate of fire while dealing some hefty damage.

Call of Duty fans have compared the Pump Shotgun to the SPAS-12 from Modern Warfare 2 which dealt ridiculous damage and had excellent range for a shotgun.

It looks similar to the Heavy Shotgun, which is a different beast altogether. Some players are worried that the addition of these two weapons will mean that the Heavy Shotgun could be vaulted or nerfed, so we’ll have to wait and see what the update brings.
