Best Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3



With every new Fortnite chapter and season comes a fresh set of unvaulted weapons. Bringing some of our favorite weapons from previous seasons back into rotation. At the same time, a handful of weapons get vaulted, which means we won't see them for some time. Regardless, the meta has shifted this season. So, read on to find out what the best Fortnite weapons are in Chapter 4 Season 3.

8. Tactical Pistol

We know many players may not consider the standard Tactical Pistol one of the best Fortnite weapons this season, or any season for that matter, but it does have a strong case in Chapter 4 Season 3. Instead of being single-fire, it's fully automatic. What's more, it has a 2x headshot multiplier. As a result, if you're running low on options, it's never a terrible idea to have it in your loadout. Because it has your back this season more than ever before.

7. Drum Shotgun

If you'd rather have the assurance of more shots in your shotgun at the expense of less damage, the drum shotgun is the way to go. It's one of the unvaulted weapons for Chapter 4 Season 3, and many players that enjoy spamming shots in quick succession will have this shotgun in their arsenal. Although it may not have the same damage as the Havoc Pump Shotgun, it has 12 bullets in its drum mag. Allowing you to switch back and forth to your shotgun without having to reload it each time.

6. MK Alpha Assault Rifle

The MK Alpha Assualt Rifle is one of the new weapons added to Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. Fancier than most assault rifles we see in the game, the MK comes with a red dot and a foregrip to reduce recoil. Because of its long-range precision and damage, we believe it is one of the best weapons in Fortnite. However, if you're going to run it, we recommend picking up a solid SMG since the MK won't be your best friend in close quarters like other assault rifles that are reliable at both long and short ranges.

5. Combat SMG

Speaking of needing an SMG to run alongside the MK Alpha assault rifle, our pick is the Combat SMG. It's a fan-favorite SMG that has been unvaulted for this season, so you can expect to see it in a lot of players' loadouts. The main reason is that it's a great all-around pick. It deals good damage, has a low bullet spread, and very controllable recoil. As a result, we regard it as one of Fortnite's most well-rounded weapons, capable of fitting in with any weapon setup.

4. Flapjack Rifle

That Flapjack rifle is another new weapon introduced in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3. It's Epic's latest take on a LMG sub-machine gun and we won't lie, it's extremely fun to use. Its 45-magazine size makes it exceedingly fun to just spray at close and mid-range. As a result, it can also be used to knock down structures or blow up cars. Overall, pick up the Flapjack rifle if you want to be a pest who is continually harassing enemies.

Although we consider the Flapjack rifle one of Fortnites best weapons this season, we'd be lying if we said it didn't have its flaws. The first flaw is its reload speed, which is painfully slow. Secondly, it is practically useless at long ranges, where you will be lucky to connect on a couple of shots. As a result, you have to be a bit choosy when using the Flapjack rifle since its glory is dependent on the situation you use it in.

3. Heavy Sniper Rifle

There's a reason the Heavy Sniper Rifle isn't in Fortnite competitive playlists; it's highly versatile and, as a result, a tad overpowered. Despite its limited magazine size and slow fire rate, the Heavy Sniper continues to hit for massive amounts of damage. So, as long as you can hit your shots, it'll be your best friend. Furthermore, it is an excellent choice to break and push through builds, as well as land a finishing blow on a vehicle. Time and time again, the Heavy Sniper remains one of the best weapons in Fortnite.

2. Havoc Pump Shotgun

Most players found their groove with the Havoc Pump Shotgun last season. That's why we're not shocked it's back this season because Epic would most likely have a riot on its hands if it wasn't.

Nonetheless, the Havoc Pump Shotgun is one of the best weapons in Fortnite owing to its massive damage output. It excels exclusively at close range and consequently requires you to hit your shots or your toast. However, when you're hitting your shots, you'll be walking through other players as if they didn't exist.

1. Havoc Suppressed Assualt Rifle

In the number one spot of the best weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 3, we have the Havoc Suprresed assault rifle. Returning again this season like its shotgun counterpart, the Havoc Suppressed assault rifle has you covered at long, mid, and close range. As a result, it allows you to get very versatile with your loadout, making more room for utility and heals.

There really is no downfall to using this weapon. It's got great damage output, the recoil is manageable, and there's even a suppressor to make it sound cool; not that it doe's anything in terms of performance. Nonetheless, if you get a chance to add a good variant of this rifle to your loadout, we don't see another weapon you'd pass it up for.
