Fortnite did a great job at the start of Season 5. Players get a lot of new content along with some leftovers from the past. Nostalgia is a big topic at this Battle Royale game, and they’ve done a great job of addressing it.
Some of the content, old and new, revolves around Fortnite weapons. New ways to finish off other players have arrived, but the classic method remains as well. There only a few crazy weapons to hold to do serious damage on the way to Victory Royale.
Top 5 weapons in Fortnite Season 5
1. Rocket Launcher
Rocket Launchers are very hard to find in Fortnite. It’s still a fun and explosive way to get some eliminations. When a player takes the Rocket Launcher, an explosion will happen.
Rocket Launchers have created so many unforgettable and wild moments throughout Fortnite history. The fact that it remains in Season 5 gives it a place on the list of best weapons.
2. Tactical Assault Rifle
Fortnite’s players will remember this as the John Wick pistol. It was back in Season 5, obtained by defeating henchman characters all over the map. They knock it down, players take it and dominate. Taking on this AI-focused battle is invaluable.
The Tactical Assault Rifle has a high rate of fire and does a massive amount of damage.
3. Double Barrel Shotgun
The Double Barrel Shotgun has also returned to Fortnite in Season 5. The damage this shotgun does is unmatched. The two shots are more than enough to net an elimination. The reload and low ammo per magazine is the only setbacks.
Players who rarely miss their shots will have a field day with the Double Barrel Shotgun.
4. Epic/Legendary Assault Rifle
Known as the SCAR, this weapon has been a game staple. It was always considered a top tier weapon. In 1v1, higher rarity Assault Rifles are a good investment and can almost guarantee a win.
Having one game over will be the difference between slamming the keyboard or snatching the Victory Royale.
5. Amban Sniper Rifle
This Mythic Sniper Rifle is a unique weapon of Din Djarin, the Mandalorian. This single-shot sniper also functions as a melee weapon with little knockback factor.
Compared to other Fortnite snipers, Amban has a larger zoom. It even has a thermal vision. Players have to eliminate The Mandalorian in Razor Crest to get this weapon, but once done, this weapon will finish off opponents on the left and right.
