Fortnite Weapon Tier List May 2020

Now that players are no longer watching Scott perform over them in towering fashion, they're back to build-battling one another with varying classifications of weapons. Here's a look at our May 2020 weapon tier list for Fortnite:

S Tier

Skye's Assault Rifle: The best AR within the game deals high damage along with a fast fire rate. Assault Rifles are typically the best flexible weapons in Fortnite, allowing for players to be versatile in their positioning while still packing a punch; this weapon is the best at that.

Tactical Shotgun: Players opting for a quicker, flashy style of Fortnite play can utilize the Tactical Shotgun to their advantage. With a magazine size of eight shells and DPS of 130.5, this weapon will continue to blast enemies away.

Midas' Drum Gun: With superb firepower and high fire rate, Midas' Drum Gun will allow you to win almost every gun fight within a close-to-medium range. Being a drum gun with a gargantuan magazine size, this weapon can still fire while your enemies are reloading. It can also take out their cover more rapidly.

A Tier

Legendary Scar: What was once the game's most formidable AR has since been surpassed. Nonetheless, the Legendary Scar still packs heat with a DPS of 198 and quick reload time. It will irrefutably melt your enemies away.

Burst Assault Rifle: The Burst AR in Fortnite is a great weapon of choice, dealing a DPS of 162 while still dealing 33 damage to players and buildings. While the burst option might turn some players away, it will certainly aid those with controllable recoil and saving magazine loads.

Suppressed Sniper Rifle: Fortnite's most lethal option at long range has to be the Suppressed Sniper Rifle. This bolt-action lacks the loud, echoing sound of an non-suppressed sniper and can surprise your enemies from great lengths. Headshots are immediate downs or eliminations.

B Tier

Rocket Launcher: The Fortnite Rocket Launcher is effective at destructing your enemies' buildings and as well dealing massive damage to them when hit. Within your arsenal, this weapon will be more effective when used in strategic fashion and not for killing potential.
