The anticipation for the new season has been building, with five teasers already released, each hinting at exciting features such as the return of certain items and a sneak peek at the Battle Pass skins. Most notably, one of the teasers has confirmed the return of a beloved weapon model, the OG pump shotgun.

Throughout previous chapters, Epic Games has introduced various shotgun models, including some pump shotguns. However, players have been eagerly awaiting the return of the OG Pump Shotgun. Finally, the wait is over, as a recent teaser has unveiled that this fan-favorite weapon will be making a comeback in the next season.

To truly appreciate the return of the OG Pump Shotgun, let’s take a look at its stats and the teaser that confirms its reintroduction in the upcoming season. The OG Pump Shotgun was initially introduced in the v1.6 update in both common and uncommon variations. Over time, it has undergone several buffs and nerfs, with changes made to its damage fall off.

Now, let’s delve into the stats of the different versions of the OG Fortnite pump shotgun prior to its removal:

  • Common:
  • Damage: 90
  • Fire Rate: 0.7
  • Magazine Size: 5

These are the stats that players fondly remember and will once again get to experience as they wield the OG Pump Shotgun in Fortnite: OG.

But that’s not all. With the return of the OG Pump Shotgun, there is speculation among players about the potential comeback of the Double Pump Shotgun meta. However, it’s important to note that this has not been officially confirmed. The Double Pump Shotgun strategy was once a popular technique in Fortnite Battle Royale, where players would carry two pump shotguns and swiftly switch between them after firing each shot. This allowed them to bypass the intended slow rate of fire for the weapon and gain a significant advantage. However, this strategy was patched in season 3 and season 5.

As the community eagerly awaits the launch of Fortnite: OG and the return of the OG Pump Shotgun, excitement is building. Players will soon be able to wield this iconic weapon once again, bringing nostalgia and a renewed sense of gameplay possibilities.
