Today we say goodbye to Fortnite Season 4 weapons and welcome our Season 5 overlords! Let’s take a look at all Fortnite weapons that are vaulted and unvaulted for season 5.

Some major shake-ups to the Fortnite weapon-meta are going down as top tier guns like the Pump Shotty are out and some newcomers enter the Battle Royale’s arsenal. The Dragon’s Breath Shotgun and the Amban Sniper Rife are new weapons players can loot and shoot.

  • The Dragon's Breath Shotgun shoots four shells per shot. It seems to only do splash damage and deals a whopping 70-140 body damage, 83-175 headshot damage, and takes 4.2 seconds to reload. Damm son, step aside Pump Shotty!
  • The Amban Sniper Rifle is from The Mandalorian TV show if you're living under a rock and haven’t heard of this amaze-balls series. You can switch between ranged and melee combat with this gun making it the first of its kind. The stats are similar to a sniper rifle and it also has a thermal scope! Yes, please hook me up Mando!

Other New Mythic Weapons:

  • Boom's Sniper Rifle
  • The Dub
  • Shadow Tracker
  • Night Hawk
  • Mandalorian Jetpack

These weapons are upgraded versions of existing guns and just do more damage, but you can read about more Mando’s Jet pack in our other article.

Season 4 Weapons Entering the Vault

Aside from the Scar and Pump Shotgun, nothing will be missed, unless your a memer, and then you'll probably miss the dirty Revolver.


  • Revolver
  • Fire Trap
  • Scoped Assault Rifle
  • Epic/Legendary Pump Shotgun
  • Legendary Combat Shotgun
  • Scar
  • Epic/Legendary Tactical SMG

Unvaulted Weapons for Season 5

Great, Balloons are back! Hate them or love them they do add some style to your games and nothing is funnier than dunking on someone with a Balloon or getting that easy snipe from a slowly falling target dummy! At the very least we look forward to some sweet kill clips in season 5.

Unvaulted Items:

  • Charge Shotgun
  • Double-Barrel Shotgun
  • P90
  • SMG
  • Storm Scout Rifle
  • Tactical Shotgun
  • Balloons
  • Heavy AR

The meta shouldn't change too much but the Mandalorian's weapons seem to be wild cards and will wait for the pros to inform us what's OP and what is Revlover tier in season 5.
