Fortnite Save the World Best Assault Rifles

Assault Rifles are the most universal and often the best weapon in Fortnite Save the World as they are easy to use and deal tons of damage. Additionally, almost any class can make great use of these weapons!

Siegebreaker

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Light Bullets
  • Weapon Type – Fully Automatic Rifle

Siegebreaker is considered one of the best, if not the best, Assault Rifle in Fortnite Save the World as it is fully automatic, has decent durability and does a lot of damage. Other stats like Crit Chance and Damage are similar to most other Assault Rifles but Siegebreaker stands out in medium to close range combat due to its high rate of fire, good damage and durability. Nocturno is another option as it is nearly identical to Siegebreaker in Fortnite Save the World but much harder to find as it is available only through Ultimate Edition Founder Packs or online marketplaces.

Wraith

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Medium Bullets
  • Weapon Type – Fully Automatic Rifle

Wraiths are quite rare as they were only available during the Road Trip and some other Fortnite Save the World events. They are still quite easy to find through trading or buying online and can be amazing Assault Rifles. Wraiths stand out due to their high headshot damage, incredible accuracy and an added suppressor. Anyone that likes to land headshots for massive damage should give the Wraith a try.

Bobcat

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Light Bullets
  • Weapon Type – Fully Automatic Rifle

Bobcats are unique Assault Rifles as unlike most of their counterparts they are meant for close-range engagements. While their accuracy quickly falls off if the targets are far away, in close-quarters Bobcats are most likely the best AR in the game. They were only available through the Event Store during the Blockbuster event but rumor has it that Bobcats will make a comeback in Season 9.

Honorable mentions – Hacksaw, Pain Train, Hemlock, Grave Digger. All these Assault Rifles are great weapons and are a worthwhile addition to any loadout. They are all still top tier but in certain scenarios will be outclassed by the ones above.

Fortnite Save the World Best Sniper Rifles

Sniper Rifles in any game are the measurement of a player’s accuracy and skill. In Fortnite Save the World a great Sniper Rifle will take out Husks with ease and remove any remaining threats quickly.

Super Shredder

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Shells n’ Slugs
  • Weapon Type – Shredder Sniper

Super Shredder is a unique Sniper Rifle as it is one of the few that does not have a scope but this does not reduce its effectiveness. Boasting incredibly high damage per shot, minimal spread and amazing accuracy, the Super Shredder will take out any opponent in Fortnite Save the World with ease. Aiming might be slightly more difficult without the scope but a player that can be accurate without one will absolutely demolish any Husks coming his or her way.

Obliterator

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Heavy Bullets
  • Weapon Type – Sniper Rifle

Obliterator is one of the slower Sniper Rifles in the game but packs an incredible punch as it has very high base damage. Obliterator will be suited towards players who like to line up their shots with deadly accuracy and take out anything coming their way. Its small magazine size requires careful management of ammo but in the right hands this can be the best Fortnite Save the World weapon.

Ralphie’s Revenge

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Heavy Bullets
  • Weapon Type – Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

Slow and powerful are the two defining characteristics of Ralphie’s Revenge. Landing headshots with Ralphie’s Revenge is the name of the game as it has an incredibly high headshot multiplier (+500%!). This is the Fortnite Save the World weapon to buy for those who like to slowly take out enemies one by one.

Fortnite Save the World Best Pistols

Pistols are important weapons in Fortnite Save the World as many classes have buffs for them. Having a good pistol will often make missions and taking out enemies significantly easier and, for some classes, be the main point of their loadout.

Bald Eagle

Rarity – Legendary

Ammo – Heavy Bullets

Weapon Type – Semi-automatic Pistol

Bald Eagle is sweet and simple – 7 bullets, good accuracy and high damage and impact. The Bald Eagle has quite a slow rate of fire and a somewhat small magazine but it can quickly deliver the killing blow on a Husk. Accurate shots are required with this weapon but taking time to line up a few headshots will take care of most enemies.

Whisper

Rarity – Legendary

Ammo – Light Bullets

Weapon Type – Semi-automatic Pistol

Whisper is the best mid-range and all-around pistol as it has a decent magazine size, good damage and fire rate, and an added suppressor. Aiming might be more difficult with this weapon, though, as it has reduced aim recovery. Whisper requires a little time to get used to but becomes a deadly pistol once its full potential is unlocked.

Fortnite Save the World Best Shotguns

Shotguns are the classic close-range weapon in any game or action movie. In Fortnite Save the World they can be extremely useful in certain situations, especially if a close-range Assault Rifle or Pistol is not available.

Helium Shotgun

Rarity – Legendary

Ammo – Energy Cells

Weapon Type – Neon Shotgun

Helium Shotgun stands out from other weapons by doing energy damage. This damage type pierces elemental resistances making it significantly easier to take out all types of Husks. The Helium Shotgun also has great damage and minimal accuracy drop off creating one of the best close-range Fortnite Save the World weapons.

Husk Buster

Rarity – Legendary

Ammo – Shells n’ Slugs

Weapon Type – Semi-automatic Shotgun

One of the easiest Fortnite Save the World weapons to use. The Husk Buster has a high fire rate, lots of damage and a decent magazine size. Its durability might be an issue but since Husk Buster is easy to get, the main drawback becomes non-existent.

Fortnite Save the World Best Explosive Weapons

Noble Launcher

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Rockets
  • Weapon Type – Energy Explosive Launcher

The Noble Launcher is probably one of the best weapons in Fortnite Save the World. It fires powerful and piercing shots and has two firing modes as the shot can be charged up to deal more area of effect damage. The Noble Launcher has one large drawback – incredibly low durability. Outside of the low durability, The Noble Launcher is one of the best weapons in the game.

Trash Cannon

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Ammo – Rockets
  • Weapon Type – Spammy Launcher

The Trash Cannon is a simple spammy launcher that does not consume ammo. It has very low durability but great damage, area of effect and is easy to craft or buy online. The Trash Cannon is a simple but effective explosive weapon in Fortnite Save the World.

Fortnite Save the World Best Melee Weapons

Melee weapons are not very popular in Fortnite Save the World (outside of the Ninja class) as taking out enemies at range can be done just as effectively without putting oneself at risk. Most melee weapons make up for their range disadvantage by having massive amounts of damage making them useful if other close-range weapons are unavailable.

Founder’s Blazing Masamune

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Class – Swords

Founder’s Blazing Masamune deals lots of fire damage and has a good attack speed making it a simple and effective tool to deal with Husks. Unfortunately, this weapon is only available through Founder’s Packs or by buying them in online marketplaces.

Six Feet Under

  • Rarity – Legendary
  • Class – Rat Rod Weapon

Six Feet Under is a shovel that is considered to be a lighter sledge hammer. Six Feet Under is a decent all-around option for any player that wants to use a melee weapon as it has great damage and a knockback effect.
