Best Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2

Fortnite Chapter 2 brought tons of new things, and with everything new, it can create a huge confusion as to what are the best weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2. With a multiple choice of weapons that are constantly being tweaked around here are some of the best weapons you can get your hands on in Fortnite Chapter 2.

As of right now, there are a total of 8 weapons in the game, but tier differentiates which one you should pick.


Best Weapons IN Fortnite Chapter 2


The S-Tier weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 are the finest of all and the weapons in this category are the best in the game. To make the best use of S-Tier weapons you should probably pick.


Assault Rifle

  • Common: 30
  • Uncommon: 31
  • Rare: 33
  • Epic: 35
  • Legendary: 36

The all trusted Assault Rifle is one of the best weapons in Chapter 2, the S-Tier Assault Rifle is stable enough and powerful enough for you to take down your opponents from a medium to close distance.


You get two modes with the gun, automatic and semi-automatic which works best how you want the gun to behave. The Epic and legendary version of the Assault Rifle is the SCAR which like its name is pretty scary.

Tactical Shotgun

  • Common: 71
  • Uncommon: 75
  • Rare: 79
  • Epic: 83
  • Legendary: 87


If you love getting close to the action then getting a Tactical Shotgun has to be your go-to weapon, the Tactical Shotgun is a mighty weapon, if you check out any streamer online you will see this in their arsenal.

Having a Tactical Shotgun gives you an upper hand not only with its insane firepower but also the way the bullets spread as you shoot the weapon. A great weapon to have, just make sure that you do not try any long-distance shots with this.

Submachine Gun

  • Common: 17
  • Uncommon: 18
  • Rare: 19
  • Epic: 20
  • Legendary: 21

A close relative of the Assault Rifle, this is a little bit of downgrade but with faster fire rate, you can easily stun your opponents with the constant barrage of bullets that you can spray your opponents with.

A great weapon in the close to medium rage, you can become lethal if you get someone in your crosshairs if you possess this weapon. Make sure that you try to get either this or an Assault Rifle in any game of Fortnite Chapter 2 that you play.


The A-Tier weapons are a bit of a step down in terms of quality, but if you believe in your abilities then it wouldn’t matter if you have an A-Tier weapon or an S-Tier weapon.

Burst Assault Rifle

  • Common: 27
  • Uncommon: 29
  • Rare: 30
  • Epic: 32
  • Legendary: 33

As the name suggests the Burst Assault Rifle only works in Burst Mode, which if you prefer is great and all but this gun has its limits. A direct comparison can be made with the Assault Rifle but if you get a Epic and Legendary versions you will certainly land a upper hand in the battle.

A tad less reliable but once again a great weapon to have in your arsenal, depending on the tier of the weapon you get you can opt for long-distance shots or medium range shots with this weapon.

Pump Shotgun

  • Common: 70
  • Uncommon: 80
  • Rare: 90
  • Epic: 100
  • Legendary: 110

Another gun with amazing stats for players who like to play close to the chest in the literal sense, if you love close combat this should probably be one of the guns that you are vying to get in Fortnite Chapter 2.

It suffers a bit when it is compared to the Tactile Shotgun in the fire rate comparison but as you can see the damage stats are higher giving you a higher score for landing every successful shot.


The weapon is great if you have them, but if you don’t have them there is nothing to fret about as you can probably get the job done with something else entirely. The weapons in B-Tier can be swapped for others and these are good as secondary weapons.

Rocket Launcher

  • Common: 70
  • Uncommon: 85
  • Rare: 100
  • Epic: 115
  • Legendary: 130

The Rocket Launcher is great for dismantling other players’ builds and structures, getting huge damage to other players or just letting your friends ride one to the enemy.

The Rocket Launcher is the most noticeable weapon in Fortnite Chapter 2 and owning to its size your opponents can easily dodge attacks, but if you can land a hit with the Rocket Launcher you are certainly going to cause a lot of damage.


The weapons in this list are least favored by players in Fortnite and though they are not bad weapons per se, you can always have a better alternative than to carry these weapons as you will probably be outgunned.

Saying that the weapons in this tier are great when you have just landed and need something to start the offense.

Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

  • Common: 95
  • Uncommon: 100
  • Rare: 105
  • Epic: 110
  • Legendary: 116

The Sniper Rifle is great if you have the time and space to take a perfect shot, with a game as fast-paced as Fortnite, you will rarely get the chance to get in cover, take aim and shoot your opponents from a distance.

You have to be great at it, as the versatility of the Sniper Rifle isn’t that good and if you aren’t sure of yourself, you should simply leave this and grab something else that is around.


  • Common: 24
  • Uncommon: 25
  • Rare: 26
  • Epic: 28
  • Legendary: 29

The Pistol is good if you have just landed, but if you carry this game later in the game there is a huge chance that you will certainly be outgunned by your opponents.

Grab the pistol if it is the only thing lying around but make sure that you look for an alternative, the Pistol works great at close range but you will have to be good at wielding one if you are going to succeed with it.

These are the best weapons in Fortnite Chapter 2 and make sure that you check out other guides as well only on GamerTweak.
