Fortnite – Ranger Shotgun Stats, Location, and More

Now that the Ranger Shotgun has been unvaulted, you’ll be able to find the spread throughout the map. You can get your hands on this gun from certain vendors, chests, supply drops, and many other spots around the new Season Map.

The Ranger Shotgun does have some drawbacks, but it makes up for them quickly. You’ll have to reload between every shot, making this a bit of a last-ditch effort if you’re looking to bring your enemy to their knees, as shotguns are normally rapid-fire and deal significant damage. However, you’ll notice that this does a massive amount of damage, and has a much longer range than most shotguns, so you may be able to master it quickly.

However, while it is a single-shot gun, the reload animation is quite speedy, so you’ll be able to utilize it up-close and personal if needed. You could effectively eliminate a player with two shots if you’re within the proper distance, and depending on how high their shield level is, those that are comfortable with the way that the shotguns feel could easily find a new favorite weapon.

  • Damage to player =117
