a brand new regular weapon called the Lever Action Shotgun. It is said to be a short range companion
for the currently available Lever Action Rifle.
Here is everything we know about Fortnite Lever Action Shotgun including its damage, reload time, and where you can find one.
Which is the new Fortnite Shotgun?
According to Epic Games the official description for the Lever Action Shotgun is as follows: “Pump-Action. Deals high damage at a moderate fire rate. Short range and limited magazine size.”
Developers says that this new shotgun is a replacement for the old fan-favorite Pump Shotgun,
which was unfortunately vaulted at the beginning of Season 5.
This new shotgun has a one of a kind reload animation which may attract many players to use it in-game.
The shotgun is not yet marked as Legendary weapon which makes it super easy to find out

varieties of the weapon available in-game.
It’s available in common, uncommon, rare, epic, and legendary variations.

As we mentioned earlier the weapon has not been in the list of legendary weapons so you
can find them anywhere on the map lying on ground rather than buying it from different
Damage stats of new Shotgun weapon
The common version of the Lever Action Shotgun deals 10.4 damage per pellet and has a reload time of 6.6 seconds. The legendary version deals 12.1 damage per pellet and has a reload time of 5.7 seconds.
