Does the new update have these ranged weapons?

No, there are no Sniper Rifles in Season 6. With the new update, Fortnite has removed the long-range weapon in the game. And it isn’t the only one that gets the ax. The Charged Shotgun, Assault Rifle, Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle, Dragon’s Breath Shotgun, Heavy Assault Rifle, Lever Action Shotgun, Lever Action Rifle, Pistol, and Tactical Shotgun are also other weapons that have been discontinued or ‘vaulted’.

However, a surprising return is that of the Pump Action Shotgun, a fan favorite that was removed in Season 5. Unfortunately, its stats have been lowered meaning you have to get even closer now. The Pistol also makes a return this time around.


In the new update, you get the ability to craft weapons and you can look at our complete crafting guide to learn how. The weapons you can craft are the Mechanical Explosive Bow, Mechanical Shockwave Bow, Primal Stink Bow, Primal Flame Bow, Mechanical Bow, Makeshift Bow, Primal SMG, Makeshift Submachine Gun, Primal Shotgun, Makeshift Shotgun, Primal Rifle, Makeshift Rifle, Primal Pistol, and Makeshift Revolver.
