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



Finding the Sheet Music and piano locations is the objective of one of Fortnite’s many Weekly Challenges, with this one…

The Tactical Submachine Gun is the best gun for early circles because it has a huge fire rate compared to others, meaning it can deal almost as much harm as more powerful, slower weapons despite having a low damage output.

It comes in Uncommon, Rare and Epic versions and all three pack a punch – the latter is the one you want though as it deals a whopping 260 damage-per-second as opposed to the base variant’s 234.

Update: As of the week of July 23rd, the Compact SMG and Submachine Gun have replaced the Tactical Submachine Gun, which has been added to the Fortnite vault. We’ll have our impressions of where it sits alongside other weapons after some playtime soon.

Packing a gigantic 50-round magazine, our favourite is the recently added Rifle-SMG hybrid, the Drum Gun. With its Rare variant firing at a rate of 27, it’s fantastic for tearing down structures quickly – perfect for the final handful of circles.


Machine Guns

Whilst the Minigun isn’t the best gun to use during combat due to its delayed firing, it is perfect for ripping opponents’ forts to shreds, even if they’re reinforced due to its unlimited magazine and absolutely no reload time. Our favourite machine gun is the Light Machine Gun though as it is incredible in close-range combat due to its 100-bullet magazine.

It doesn’t work too well when in long-range combat though so you’re better off switching to a different gun type entirely if you want a chance at winning a brawl against a foe with a more suitable weapon.


Sniper Rifles

If long-range distance combat is your thing, then the Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle is your best friend. It’s the best sniper rifle in the game in our opinion as it can obliterate opponents with a single headshot, even if they have maximum health and shields.
