Fortnite’s Pump Shotgun is Getting Some Balance Changes

If you like to think of yourself as a surgeon when shooting the pump shotgun in Fortnite, you’ll need to update your degree when they change the weapon. Word came down from Eric Williamson, the design lead on Fortnite, that the gun would be getting a rebalance soon, which may or may not make your day awesome depending on how good you are with the current make.

I know for a fact there are people who love the way the gun works right now and base their entire build-game around getting an advantage and double tapping people out of the game. So whatever change may come to the gun will drastically affect a good chunk of their playerbase. No word yet when they plan to implement it, but if they’re talking about it openly¬†on social media, expect the update right after Thanksgiving.
