How to Use Fortnite’s Lever Action Shotgun – Everything You Should Know

As Chapter 2 Season 5 of Epic Games Fortnite Battle Royale rolls along, a new update has introduced a new weapon. Here's everything you need to know for how to use Fortnite's new Lever Action Shotgun.

The new season of Fortnite has introduced fresh content across the board for Epic Games. And now update v15.20 has brought along a new weapon.

After months if not years of players requests, it appears as though Epic Games has produced. Chapter 2 Season 5 introduces a brand new Shotgun reminiscent of Fortnite Seasons past.

The Lever Action Shotgun is here to give players another close-range option for Battle Royale. It has some slight tweaks from what players are used to, so here's everything you need to know.

Update v15.20 Lever Action Shotgun

Update v15.20 went live on January 13, 2020 bringing new twists to the island. Here's how to use Fortnite's new Lever Action Shotgun for all your close-range encounters.

Fielding calls and complaints for the return of the Pump Shotgun, Epic Games has finally delivered, sort of. The new Lever Action Shotgun operates faster than the Pump Shotgun and Charge Shotgun, but fires at a slightly slower rate than the Heavy Shotgun.

It's likely that Epic Games wasn't interested in re-adding the exact same weapon from a previous season. So the Lever Action Shotgun was a way to satisfy requests while still providing fresh in-game content.

Lever Action Shotguns can be found as standard Floor Loot, in Gold Chests, or Supply Chests. The weapon can also be upgraded at various locations throughout the map.

The Lever Action Shotgun is available in Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants. It's chamber carries 9 shots (Shells ammo type), and has a headshot multiplier of x1.45.

The Common variant of the Shotgun deals out 10.4 damage per shell, and has a reload time of 6.6 seconds. While the Legendary version deals 12.7 damage per shot, with a reload time of 5.4 seconds.

Coming Soon in Chapter 2 Season 5
