"Fortnite Battle Royale" Chapter 2 Season 5 had a controversial beginning due to the vaulting of the Pump Shotgun. Fire Trap and Scoped AR were also vaulted but due to Pump Shotgun's satisfying eliminations that send opponents back to the lobby in one shot, players were not happy with the idea of the weapon being sent to the vault.

However, to compensate for Pump Shotgun's vaulting, Fortnite welcomed a new shotgun called Dragon's Breath Shotgun though the weapon was not powerful enough to completely replace the Pump Shotgun. Other shotguns such as the Tactical Shotgun and Charged Shotgun were also unvaulted.

'Fortnite' shotgun adjustments

The Dragon Breath Shogun deals low damage however, it can set fire to players and materials, just like a Firefly jar. But this feature is rarely required in clutch battles. "Fortnite" recently made an adjustment to the weapon and increase its range and damage. Furthermore, the Charge Shotgun was buffed as well, increasing its ammo capacity, damage, and reload speed.

The exact numbers of the buff were provided by "Fortnite Battle Royale" dataminer Lucas7Yoshi who stated that the clip size of Charge Shotgun was increased from 3 to 4 and from 4 to 5 for other rarities.

For Dragon's Breath shotgun, the buff was mostly ranged based although the weapon now has a stronger knockback as well.
