Fortnite has to change, create a new meta and combine with mechanics. Epic has got its community used to it, which dislikes the game being the same for many months. That is why seasons have been created that sometimes change a lot in the subject of various items or weapons.
In Season 5, the issue of shotguns is the most difficult for players. They used to be the core of Battle Royale, today they seem to be losing their importance. Why?
These are NPCs that do not upgrade weapons
One of the people who started talking about this problem is the popular Youtuber SypherPK. According to him, collecting gold and the idea of an NPC itself is really cool. Unfortunately, not all NPCs upgrade their weapons.
And while the purple and gold shotguns are really good, there’s rarely a chance to actually upgrade them. There are loads of NPCs in the center of the map, but few upgrade weapons. In previous seasons, it was done thanks to special stations, which were more than NPCs.
The problem is the amount of NPCs on the map that upgrade weapons. There are definitely fewer of them than upgrade stations. I have 8,000 gold bars, and I really have nowhere to upgrade the AR or the tactical shotgun.
Can it be repaired? Of course. The easiest way would be to simply add upgrade options to all NPCs on the map. It’s not a change that requires a lot of work, which is why the community started asking for it so hard and often.
Rather, such changes should not be expected in the next update, but later in the season, definitely. It all depends now on Epic and whether the developers want to listen to the community.
