Complete Fortnite Battle Royale Weapons Stats List

The Battle Royale weapons list is very different from Fortnite's base gameplay. This stats list will give you the edge you need to gain Victory Royale!

Editor's Note: Updated with current stats on 7/3/19. All data is current as of Season 9. Several weapons have been removed, tweaked, or changed in rarity since our last update.

While exploring the Fortnite Battle Royale map and opening golden loot chests you may discover the exact same weapon with different levels of rarity, and their stats will change along with color.

An orange sniper rifle is going to deal more damage than a green one, for instance. Here are the weapon breakdowns, in order from weakest / most common to strongest/rarest:

  • Common – Gray
  • Uncommon – Green
  • Rare – Blue
  • Epic – Purple
  • Legendary – Orange

Fortnite Battle Royale Weapon List

Below we list out each type of weapon and its basic stats including magazine size, damage, and reload speed (in seconds).

If you want to calculate a weapon's DPS from this data, remember that a high damage rating won't always equal a high damage per second value due to varying firing rate and reload speeds.

Rocket Launchers for instance actually have a lower DPS than their damage rating would indicate, due to slow firing speed and the fact that they have a clip size of 1.

Keep in mind that Battle Royale is still in development, with stats being tweaked and new weapons being added in regular updates. We'll work to keep this updated as often as possible, but in some cases, outdated values may be listed. 

Have you found any of the weapon rarities we don't have listed below, or have you noticed an incorrect stat? Let us know in the comments and we'll get it updated!
