Coming to the game at 12:00 GMT today, the Heavy Shotgun is already a controversial topic among many Fortnite players with the current shotguns filling their niche quite nicely.

But just how powerful will the Heavy Shotgun be? Here are the stats:

ShotgunDPSDamageFire RateReload TimeMagazine Size
777715.627
73.573.515.947
111741.55.78
66.5950.74.625

 
Before completly dismissing the Heavy Shotgun, you have to remember that it’s advertised as a shotgun with higher effectiveness at medium range, making up for the relatively low DPS when compared to the current Tactical Shotgun.

As always, until the gun is in-game and players have a chance to try it out, it’s hard to judge whether it’s a good addition or not. We will find out soon enough.
