Fortnite is has dedicated an entire in-game event to Summer with 14 Days of Summer that unvaults one weapon every 24 hours. June 29, the fifth day of the event, saw the temporary addition of the Heavy Shotgun.

Epic Games kicked off 14 Days of Summer on June 25 which also includes the unique mechanic of unvaulting a new weapon every day of the event.

The weapons that were temporarily unvaulted are the Light Machine Gun, Quad Launcher, Burst Assault Rifle, Crossbow, and now the Heavy Shotgun.

The weapon was originally added back into the game during Season 7 but only lasted a short while.

Heavy Shotgun temporarily available

The Heavy Shotgun was meant to be a combination of the tactical and pump shotgun, but the gun’s inconsistent damage lead to it being vaulted.

They were removed the next season, but 14 Days of Summer bought them back for a quick encore.

The Heavy Shotgun is available for only 24 hours and comes in Epic and Legendary rarities.

  • DPS: 74/77
  • Damage: 74/77
  • Fire rate: 1
  • Magazine size: 7
  • Structure damage: 79/83
  • Reload time: 5.9/5.6

On June 30 there will be a new unvaulted weapon that will arrive in Fortnite.

  1. Light Machine Gun
  2. Quad Launcher
  3. Burst Assault Rifle
