Many weapons have come, gone, and come again. With every update, some players wonder what will make a return and what’s being thrown into the vault. The Tac Shotgun is one of those weapons. As Fortnite Chapter 3 sees more updates, players are wondering if the Tac Shotgun weapon will ever make a return.
Will the Tac Shotgun Return in Fortnite Chapter 3?
The Tactical Shotgun has seen some things throughout the past chapters. Epic Games tossed it into the vault. They buffed it. They even nerfed it. Honestly, it seems like Epic Games did everything possible to the weapon before shuffling it off into the vault yet again back in Chapter 2, Season 6.
Fans of it might be disappointed in the news. For now, there’s no mention of bringing the Tac Shotgun weapon back in Fortnite Chapter 3. Even so, there are other shotguns to try.
For the weapons removed from the vault, players can use the Heavy Shotgun. When it comes to new weapons, there’s a Striker Pump Shotgun and an Auto Shotgun. As it works, the Auto Shotgun seems to stand in as a placeholder of sorts for the Tac Shotgun. However, some may not view it as a reliable replacement.
There are some concerns about these new shotguns not holding a candle to the Tac Shotgun. For instance, many players feel the Auto Shotgun is a nerfed version of the Tac Shotgun weapon in Fortnite Chapter 3. The firing rate seems a bit subpar to its predecessor, and it doesn’t have as much power behind the shots either.
Fortnite players have long learned to accept that sometimes their favorite weapons can up and disappear. The Tac Shotgun, for now, remains tucked away in the vault and unavailable for Fortnite Chapter 3. You’ll just have to stick to the new ones to get your shotgun fix and enjoy everything else there is to like about the new updates.
Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1 is available on PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, Nintendo, PC, iOS, and Android.
