Fortnite Leak reveals creepy upcoming OP gun
A new Fortnite The leak revealed a new gun coming to the game, presumably with Season 7. Word of the gun comes courtesy of new files added to the game with a recent update. In other words, the leak not only reveals the existence of the weapon, but reveals that it seems to be happening very soon, hence the projection that it will release later in Season 7. Whatever Either way, when and if it’s added it can shake up the meta.
Not only did the pistol – a legendary drum shotgun – leak, but its stats did as well. And at the surface level, some of those stats aren’t that impressive, especially damage, which is only 5.3. However, it shoots 10 pellets at a time, which means it does 53 damage if you hit them all. During this time, it shoots four times per second, which means that if you connect to each pellet, you will deal 212 damage in one second.
Even if you factor in the weapon’s other stats, it’s an absolute beast. That said, it’s not only possible that these stats aren’t final, but they’ll never even be added to the game itself.
A Legendary Shotgun has been added in this update but it is not listed anywhere, I don’t know what it will be used for. It also has prize value for NPC sales!
The damage is multiplied by 10 pellets, then x1.25 if you want to get the head damage! pic.twitter.com/jHinJHknx2
