Fortnite players will be glad to know that one of their favorite weapons is about to become stronger. That’s right, it has been confirmed that the Tactical Shotgun is soon going to get two new variants, meaning that its power is going to increase. This is something that has happened in the past with some other weapons, but it is the first time the Shotgun is getting some upgrades.

New Variants of Tactical Shotgun Confirmed

The in-game News Tab revealed this which confirmed that the Tactical Shotgun will get Epic and Legendary Variants. Although we currently don’t know exactly when this is going to happen, it is safe to say that it might happen through the next update as it is marked as “coming soon.” In the past, there have been times when other weapons such as the Burst Assault Rifle also got new variants. Just like them, the Epic and Legendary Variant of the Tactical Shotgun is going to feature a brand-new look. This has been done to make it look different from the previous variants.

A Weapon Will Get Vaulted

One thing to keep in mind here is that once the new variants of the Tactical Shotgun are added to the game, Epic is going to vault some other weapon. This is something which is done in order to keep balance in the game. Fortnite players are well aware of the fact that whenever a new weapon is added, a previous one gets vaulted.

What Can You Expect from It?

Fans are definitely going to enjoy the new Epic and Legendary Variants of the Tactical Shotgun. At the moment, shotgun fans are able to choose from the Drum Shotgun, Combat Shotgun, and the Pump. While we currently don’t know exactly how much better the Tactical Shotgun’s new variants are going to be, players can surely expect to see higher accuracy as well as damage. In addition to this, the new variants will most likely load faster than the other shotguns.

For those wondering when the new variants will arrive, it will most likely happen through this week’s update. Many fans currently believe that the next update is going to arrive on Thursday, but Epic Games is yet to confirm whether this will happen or not. In any case, the new Epic and Legendary variants of the Tactical Shotgun are surely going to take the game to a whole new level.

On the other hand, the Fortnite World Cup Finals are all set to be held from July 26 till 28. The tournament is currently believed to be one of the biggest Esports tournaments of this year, as it will feature a prize pool of $30 million. In addition to this, Epic Games is currently inviting some Fortnite pros to the tournament as alternate players. They are inviting only those players who were close to qualifying for the finals. These players will basically replace a qualified player if he fails to make it to the finals because of some reasons.
