Fortnite best weapons: Our tier list for the best Fortnite loot, plus Rift-to-Go stats

The Rift-to-Go has the following characteristics, according to Epic Games:

  • Rift-To-Go is a portable Rift that can be carried in inventory and deployed immediately.
  • When activated, you are teleported into the sky and placed in skydiving mode.
  • The Rift will remain at the location it was deployed for 10 seconds, allowing other players to use it.
  • Epic rarity. Drops in stacks of 1 with a max stack size of 2.
  • Can be found in chests, Vending Machines, Supply Drops and Loot Llamas.

The introduction of the Rift-to-Go suggests that Rifts on the map – which were added with the arrival of Season 5 – could be a thing of the past in Season 6 onwards.

What’s particularly interesting it is adds a rift at that location for a short period – allowing squad members to use it, or even rival players, if they want to give chase.

Our picks for the best weapons in Fortnite

You could argue about the ins and outs of weapon stats all day and which is the best based on hard, cold numbers but what’s really important is how they perform in combat. For example, just because the M4 Assault Rifle has the highest DPS in the game, it doesn’t mean it’s going to outshine a Rocket Launcher in the final circle.

Weapon ranking changes based on strategy and the current situation, therefore your play style often determines what guns work best for you. We’ve rounded up our favourite guns from each category based on how they perform when playing a match.

Assault Rifles

The AR is every player’s essential weapon for scoring fast kills during medium-range skirmishes due to its spacious 30-round magazine. They can be used during close-range combat, but they don’t pack as much of a punch as other gun types. The SCAR – the Legendary variant of the AR – is our favourite of the bunch as it packs a massive 198 damage-per-second output, although it has a slightly slower reload speed compared to its Common, Uncommon and Rare brothers. If you’re unable to find the elusive Legendary beast then the Burst Assault Rifle almost as good.


If you’ve just dropped and the Common or Uncommon M4 Assault Rifle is the only gun you can grab, you’ll be at an advantage during medium to long range combat but maybe consider running away if your opponent has a shotgun because your chances of prevailing during an ambush is slim.

The Thermal Scoped AR is also a fantastic contender, although it unfortunately has a heavy recoil so make sure you tap-fire instead of holding down when shooting it. It comes in Epic and Legendary variants and gives you a gigantic advantage over other players even if you don’t use it to shoot as its thermal scope shows unopened chests, Supply Drops and enemy heat signatures.

Lastly, the Scoped AR is our favourite weapon in the mobile version of Fortnite specifically since it works wonderfully with the game’s aim assist. It also packs 100% accuracy so it’s a great gun for those who struggle with staying accurate consistently. Just make sure you use it at medium to long range as it sadly has a slow fire rate.
