Fortnite OG Zero Build Best Classic Weapons Explained

Pump Shotgun

The Pump Shotgun is one of the most loved and powerful shotguns that players have been wanting to return for a long time. With its high damage, long range, and precise shots, this gun is best for those who have had some experience playing Fortnite. It’s a truly powerful gun in the right hand, but even for the inexperienced, it’ll still deal a huge amount of damage.

Assault Rifle

The classic Assault Rifle is a well-rounded weapon. No matter which loadout you put this gun in, it’ll be a reliable main weapon as well as the perfect fallback to take out escaping opponents at long range. While it may not be the most powerful, its easy-to-use nature makes it an essential gun to have in your loadout when playing Zero Build mode.

Tactical Shotgun

The Tactical Shotgun is a reliable gun to use during Zero Build as it gives beginners some grace with the number of rounds it has. Although this shotgun may do less damage than other shotguns that have been in Fortnite, the Tactical Shotgun will allow for quick shots when running and gunning in Zero Build.


The SMG is a simple but effective weapon, as when paired with other guns, it almost becomes unstoppable. This is especially true when it’s paired with the Pump Shotgun, as the SMG helps shoot through your enemies’ shields and the Pump Shotgun allows for high damage shots.
