Fortnite Weapon Ranking

Weapon Rarities
There are five different rarities with regards to weapons in Fortnite: Battle Royale. As you collect items from the map and from the loot chests that are sprinkled around the place, it’s possible to get the same weapon, but with a different rarity. The better the rarity of that gun, the better its stats will be.

Starting with the weakest and ending with the strongest, here’s what you need to know about weapon tiers in the game:

Gray – Common
Green – Uncommon
Blue – Rare
Purple – Epic
Orange – Legendary

 

Weapon list

In this section you’ll find a breakdown of the Fortnite: Battle Royale weapon list with the most important stats for each one.

Note that we’ve also attempted to provide a ranking of the best weapons within each category. Some of these are simple to parse, and are based purely on the relative DPS output. In other case you need to look to the broader stat spread and weigh up the pluses and minuses in each case.

All stats are subject to change as the game is patched.
