Fortnite Double Barrel Shotgun (Epic/Purple)

By | November 21st, 2018 | Categories: Double Barrel, Fortnite Weapons

The Epic/Purple Fortnite Double Barrel Shotgun is a member of the Shotgun class that is simultaneously the most fearsome close-quarters weapon in the game and the most laughable. Despite the overwhelming damage that it puts out per shot, the two-shot clip keeps it in the running as one of the more lethal weapons in the game without it becoming too powerful. It requires virtually no aim as the reticle is nearly the size of a player’s torso. The only reason that it is not overpowered is that it requires extremely close range to be effective. A player using one has to be nearly standing on top of an enemy to bring them down. However, for quick, fast build battles, it can be one of the best choices, seeing as it only takes one shot in most cases. Its biggest drawbacks are the range difficulty and the fact that it only has two shots.

The Lowdown

  • Color: Purple (Epic)
  • Thrill factor: Very high. A fight with one can be over in the blink of an eye, but missing a shot or two often means death. Failure using the Double Barrel is generally not tolerated, making it a high-risk, high-reward weapon.
  • Popularity: Now that the excitement of the newness has worn off, people are straying further away from them. A dedicated group use them and have perfected the art of playing with them. The simplicity of this weapon makes it a wonderful choice for beginners as well as very experienced players.
  • Odds of finding the weapon: This weapon, despite not being picked up all the time, is hard to find on the floor. However, it can often be discovered in piles of loot.
  • Interesting Note: The best way to use the Double Barrel is to have a backup plan in case the first two shots don’t land. It’s often combined with another shotgun or a “spray and pray” weapon, such as a P90.


In summary, the Epic/Purple Fortnite Double Barrel Shotgun is a fantastic weapon for anything close range. Since a single shot can bring down most players, it’s often an excellent choice in Squads or Duos as well as Solos. It’s most recommended for people who enjoy close-quarters combat.
