Here’s something that’s bound to make an overwhelming majority of the Fortnite community happy: the Pump Shotgun, which was Vaulted right at the start of Season 9, has been returned to the game after Epic mentioned that they were “experimenting with a world where the Pump Shotgun joins the current shotgun lineup”. It’s being reintrodyce
This is huge news for the meta of Fortnite with the Pump’s Uncommon and Rare variants returning, but it’s only just the start. In return, Epic have vaulted the Rare Tactical Assault Rifle, Impulse Grenades, Rift-to-Go (!) and Pirate Cannon. The latter was a Season 8 hangover so it makes sense but the rest are quite the surprise.
To make up for that loss, Epic have also added back the Revolver in a new form. The Shockwave Grenade is back, so too is the Suppressed SMG. There has also been a huge array of nerfs and buffs across the board. Epic have also shown the Llamas some respect, giving five per match and increasing mats from 200 to 350.
