Fortnite SMG Compact Gun/P90 (Epic/Purple)
Once a laughable weapon class, the guns that use light ammo have made an unbelievable comeback and none demonstrate their surge to popularity as much as the Epic/Purple Fortnite SMG Compact Gun, also known as the P90. It barely joined Fortnite before being nerfed and yet is so dangerous that losing to one makes a player shrug and say “Oh, well. He had a P90.” With an impressive clip of 50 and a smooth 21 damage-per-shot, it shreds both enemies and structures alike with close to no recoil. The only weakness it seems to have is that it is best at close to medium range at best, and functions poorly past a certain point.
- Color: Purple(Epic)
- Thrill factor: High. Its high rate of fire and large clip allow a player to spray to their heart’s content, making most fights end in frantic build battles or exciting chases. Beware that it does take more than 3 seconds to reload. Watch your ammo and make sure to not attack when you’re low.
- Popularity: Extremely high. They’re powerful, fast, and they look cool. Also, it’s becoming more common for streamers to abandon shotguns and use instead of this type of weapon, making it all the more alluring to your average player.
- Odds of finding the weapon: Finding a P90 off drop is unlikely, but in the cases where it does happen, more often than not the player will go on to slaughter most of the rest of the people.
- Interesting Note: It’s often used as a way to get through structures. In the case of build battles, one of these can destroy the barriers and is still excellent at fighting people when you get through. It is often used with a shotgun, firing with especially the Double Barrel before switching.
The Epic/Purple Fortnite SMG P90 is a standout in close quarters combat. It’s helpful for both accurate and inaccurate players because of how quickly it can fire. It’s most recommended for any player as even the most accurate of people struggle to match the damage the P90 can put out so expeditiously.
