Fortnite Weapon tier list July 2020 has the best weapons for the waterlogged map of Chapter 2 Season 3. The increased mobility from the waterways shake up the game in interesting ways, giving players varied ways of engaging. Here are the best weapons to use in Fortnite in July 2020.
Fortnite Weapon Tier List July 2020
- Rocket Launcher
- Assault Rifle
- Bolt-Action Sniper
- Tactical Shotgun
- Jules' Glider Gun
Rocket Launchers are harder to find in Chapter 2 Season 3, but once you have it you'll be hard to stop. It kills enemies and breaks structures efficiently. The water map also lets long range weapons shine, as you can predict the movements of enemies and see them in the open easier. By the same merit, the added mobility lets you get the drop on opponents with the classic Tactical Shotgun.
The Glider Gun, while not a true weapon, gives unparalleled mobility that can blow out the enemy. Going into glider mode after jumping gives you supreme control over your positioning while the enemy struggles to track you.
- Flare Gun
- Hunting Rifle
- Compact SMG
The new Flare Gun serves a similar purpose to the Rocket Launcher, setting fire to structures to literally smoke out your enemy. It even marks enemies in the explosion range.
The Hunting Rifle is also another good choice for long range that you can get early on.
Unlike the other SMGs, the Compact didn't get any nerfs and is a surprisingly versatile weapon even at medium range.
- Burst Assault Riffle
- Submachine Gun
- Charge Shotgun
Burst ARs and SMGs got a nerf this season, with their clip size and firing rate reduced. They were quite the force last season, but the nerfs have made them fall down the list slightly.
The Charge Shotgun is more situational that its Tactical counterpart, but you can use it as a structure buster as well as an ambush tool.
The pistol is always the lowest on the list, as you need a relatively high level of skill to even make it work at the level of the others.
