The 21.51 Fortnite update didn't bring a ton of new stuff to the island, but at least we got the Fire With Fire Week challenges. You'll have to get acquainted with a few of the unvaulted weapons that are out in the wild on the Fortnite island - like the Dragon's Breath Shotgun.

If you want to get your hands on the recently unvaulted shotgun and see what its stats are, you have come to the right place! We'll show you everything you need to know about the Dragon's Breath Shotgun in Fortnite.

Dragon's Breath Shotgun In Fortnite - Where To Find

Luckily for you who's looking to get your hands on this weapon, Epic Games has made sure there's no shortage of them around the Fortnite island - the Dragon's Breath Shotgun is available on the ground and in chests of all rarities.

Sadly, you won't be able to purchase it from vending machines, so you're better off spending your Gold Bars buying other stuff like Chug Cannons, which can now be acquired this way.
