A feature that was originally found in Fortnite Season 5 has returned in Season 6, allowing players to use the old “Double Pump” strategy from back in the day.
The shotgun meta is always a topic of conversation in Fortnite, and Season 6 is no different. Players have been complaining about the effectiveness of the Primal Shotgun, while strongly disliking the Makeshift variant.
Fortnite Season 6 brought back a few Exotic weapons from Season 5, along with a heap of new ones for players to try. One of the returning weapons is The Dub – a Double Barrel shotgun that pushes both the shooter and the opponent back when fired.
The Pump has also returned to Season 6, giving players the ability to use The Dub and The Pump as a double-pump replacement.
For those who don’t know, the Dub Shotgun is unique in one special way. There’s no cooldown timer attached to The Dub, which allows players to use a Pump and Dub together without facing a delay.
Here’s a video from YouTuber, OrangeGuy, showing how this works. He made the video back in Season 5, but the information still applies. In fact, the “Double Pump” strategy lives up the name now more than it did last season.
Initially, when we reported on this feature, we weren’t sure whether or not it was intended. After over a season of The Dub shotgun, it’s safe to say that Epic know that the cooldown works this way, and are okay with it.
If you want to try the Season 6 Dub shotgun for yourself, you can find it from Burnout south of Steamy Stacks

Fortnite characters locations Season 8 map
Luckily, the folks at Fortnite.GG has an interactive map of all of the NPCs in Season 8.
Here’s a map of all of the NPCs in Fortnite Season 8. We’ll keep this updated over the course of the season as more appear or are found around the map. Bigfoot, for instance, is missing from this list. We’re not sure whether that’s because he isn’t there or just hasn’t been found yet.
- Disguised man: offers a prop disguise
- Pink Rift: allows you to activate a Rift
- Yellow Cloud: Reveal Future Storm Circle
Compared to seasons past, the number of Fortnite character locations in Season 8 is very minimal. As well, players can no longer upgrade weapons through NPCs. The pool of Mythic weapons has also been minimized.
