Fortnite Update v6.31 is currently live in the game and the latest update of the game has brought significant changes for the game. The new update has introduced all new LTM mode for the game called as Team Rumble. Also, a new pump shotgun has joined the weaponry list of the game. Apart from these enhancements and bug fixes, last week Epic Games Design Lead Eric Williamson stated the balancing will be coming for the shotguns in the update v6.31
Well, the latest update has brought many changes to the shotgun damage stats which has been mentioned below
Pump Shotgun Stats Changes
- Pump Shotgun maximum damage increased from 80 / 85 to 95 / 100
- Pump shotguns will do higher damage in shorter range buckets but damage falls off quicker. This means you’ll do more damage to closer targets but less damage to farther targets.
Shotguns will now always apply at least 3 pellets worth of damage if only 1-2 pellets hit the target.
NOTE: Bonus pellets can never be critical hits.
These are details about Pump Shotgun Stats Changes
We believe that many players will now again shift back from SMG to Pump shotguns, which were getting neglected by some players with the introduction of SMG’s to the game
Also, the latest update has increased the damage rate of the shotguns, which will be very favourable for the players in close encounters
