Fortnite Battle Royale Patch v.3.0.0 brought the controversial nerf of the double pump. Many didn’t like the double pump, because it does so much damage in a short amount of time. Also it was an easy way to kill opponents since all you needed was two pumps and to press two keys over and over. But then Epic saw how it wasn’t the fairest way to play and decided to try and put a stop to it. So everyone thought that it would be the death of double pump with Patch v.3.0.0 and a New Fortnite Battle Royale Meta would have to be found. But some supporters of it decided to search for a way to bring the Fortnite Battle Royale double pump back from the dead.
A New Way to Double Pump – Fortnite Battle Royale
This new Method isn’t easy as the old, just push two keys over and over. To make this new way work, you have to be precise when it comes to timing. This method isn’t as strong as the old, but it is still the double pump. To use this new method, here’s what you have to do.
- Shoot with you first pump shotgun.
- Switch to your second pump shotgun and wait until you hear the “pump” sound, that means the cool down is over.
- Shoot your second pump shot gun.
- Then swap back to your first, shoot, and repeat.
When swapping to your original pump shotgun, you don’t have to wait for the “pump” sound. As you can see though, it’s not as easy as the old way but still possible. Here is a video demonstrating this method.
From this video you can see how this method works and the mechanics of it. This way isn’t perfect and will take time to get use to, but have fun trying it out and getting those kills!
