The above tables include the Common and Legendary rarities of the Auto Shotgun.

The Auto Shotgun works a lot like the Primal Shotgun from Chapter 2 – Season 6 in that it can do absolutely huge damage at close range. It also takes a long time reload, so beware before you start just firing away.

The Legendary version of the gun offers a significant damage and reload time increase, but doesn’t change the fire rate or amount of shells it can carry.


Auto Shotgun Location

As a weapon available in all rarities, the Auto Shotgun can be found anywhere where loot normally spawns.

Find the Auto Shotgun as floor loot, in chest, vending machines and generally anywhere across the Fortnite map.

Fortnite is free-to-play on PC via the Epic Games Store, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Android.
