New Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3

There were a lot of different types of weapons that were in circulation in the previous chapter, from normal ones to primal, mechanical, mythic and other kinds. This time around, things are a bit more normal per se. There are some notable ones added to the game’s arsenal like the Auto shotgun, Striker Pump Shotgun, Stinger SMG, MK-Seven Assault Rifle, Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper and other utilities like the tent and the Med-Mist. In this article, we will be focusing on the weapons that you can use to solidify your chances of winning.

Auto Shotgun

You need a shotgun in a battle royale for all those close-quarter fights. This one right here is not massively overpowered and is pretty well-balanced. It packs a lot of shots for a Shotgun and is very helpful when used correctly.


Striker Pump Shotgun

This shotgun is slow-firing but inflicts a lot of damage to the enemies. It holds five shells at a time and has a decent pellet spread to its name.

Stinger SMG

This one is a decent new SMG that works wonders in close range fights. It is far better than its previous version with rapid-fire potential. But it isn’t helpful in mid-range battles so you should not consider it for that.

MK-Seven Assault Rifle

Rifles are the best way to go in any shooter game. The MK-Seven Assault Rifle is a great addition to Chapter 3 and lives up to the expectations. The best part about the weapon is that when you right-click to aim down sight with it, you enter first-person mode. It stands its ground in close, mid and long-range battles.
