About Heavy Shotgun in Fortnite

Heavy Shotgun is a heavy version of the common and uncommon tactical shotgun. You can find it on Rare, Epic, and Legendary ratings.

It is powered by a Pump-action mechanism and is reputed for its x2.5 Headshot multiplier. The powerful weapon was vaulted in Patch 7.30 and was available only in Playground and Creative. The Heavy Shotgun was made obsolete due to the addition of the Epic and Legendary Pump Shotgun.
