How much was the Fortnite Combat Shotgun buffed in the last update

In the last update of Fortnite, 14.30, the shotgun was strengthened. But how exactly?


Epic decided to strengthen the combat shotgun during the last patch. The problem is that the studio does not provide any conversion factors or additional information, except that something has been strengthened and should now be better.

How has the shotgun really changed?

  • Rare – Base damage increased from 50 to 57
  • Epic – base damage increased from 53 to 60
  • Legendary – base damage increased from 55 to 63

Is it a lot or a little? You can definitely feel the difference, as shown by various gameplays and shotgun damage presentations after buffs.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to test a modified combat shotgun, it’s definitely worth trying how it is doing now. Perhaps it will turn out to be really useful in some situations and will positively surprise you with its power.
