Fortnite Battle Royale v21.30 Update

New Weapon: Prime Shotgun

Deal the most damage with the first shot of the clip when using the new Prime Shotgun — no warm-up necessary! The Prime Shotgun is a unique shotgun that rewards players who frequently reload. This shotgun deals bonus damage when firing with a full clip! Reload that first round over and over to maximize your damage.

The remaining three shots deliver a constant damage rate across all three bullets, while not being as potent as the first. Of course, the on-screen ammo counter allows you to keep track of how many shots are left, but you can also use the shotgun’s light display to do so.

New Super Level Styles are now available

Remember that the Player Marker is not visible unless a player has a nameplate attached to their player. If you don’t see the additional information when testing your island, make sure you have nameplates turned on.
