Fortnite became a BR title in the form of Save the World when gamers were young. Although the games entrance to the Battle Royale genre was the main reason for its impressive success, Fortnite remained long before it became a BR title.
STW is a PvE tower defense game that features quite similar features to its younger BR brother. However, STW isnt free, which creates a small barrier of entry for newer players. While the game is relatively simple as a viewer, it becomes somewhat more difficult if you don''t know your way around the meta.
Epic Games keep up with the best weapons in the game, helping you stay on top of your game and help you choose which ones you should aim for in the game.
While completing the following list, the STW community may look modest, but it still has excellent content creators who strive to guide the players towards the highest possible outcomes. Beasts quarterly rankings and Diezens tier list were vitally helpful in helping complete the following list, and each weapon will allow you take that one extra step to achieve success in STW.
STW. The best weapons in Fortnite
List of the Best Fortnite STW Items and Weapons
Sniper rifles are essential for almost all missions, even if it is for collecting information. It is also one of the most powerful rifles in the game, and it can shoot through the walls.
In a couple of hits, it can also break down walls, which allows players to demolish obstacles. This is mostly useful for allowing your teammates to assist you and increase your vision around the map.
Siegebreaker is a powerful tool that shines in any particular context, but it does what it does the best and provides reliable damage. It''s quite simple to use with nice recoil control.
It is dependent on less benefits than Typewriter, making it a safe choice for anyone who is just starting to play STW.
melee weapons can be quite useful in STW, unlike the BR version. While mythical ones will just run away with the competition when comparing base stats, they are difficult to obtain, making them into unicorns you should pursue throughout your STW career.
Spectral Blade can still beat the early game even in its base form. Even in its damage-stacking perk, it''s almost a necessity to take it to the next level.
In close-quarter-combat situations, a stacking damage buff that goes up to five times.
As you enter the STW, single firing all of your enemies will become more difficult. A time will come when youll need to clear your trusty bow and begin dealing with the area of effect (AoE) damage.
Vacuum Tube Bow has the necessary tools and capabilities to take it to the next level, but what makes it unique is its passive. Chain lightning causes six monsters to strike, so it even has a large AoE.
If you have any mobility problems, this bow will be the perfect choice to become your main DPS source. In any case, your setup is lacking ways to slow down, and The Powder Keg also turns into an excellent option owing to its snaring ability.
As of today, the shotguns are in a strange situation. Most of them are incrediblely powerful and powerful and capable of shreddling through almost anything you throw at them. Ground Pounder is somewhat more powerful than the rest due to raw damage output and flexibility.
With the correct benefits, the gun gets extremely quickly. If you do not have AoE damage, you may even compensate for Ground Pounder. Since Ground Pounder may be, you should still observe your movements, because youll be fighting in a close-range situation against all the monsters. Try not to corner yourself and avoid your journey by one-shotting everyone you follow.
Most SMGs feel almost identical. It''s quite difficult to discern the difference between the two. Thrasher, according to statistics, is simply the crown because to its sheer damage output.
It''s almost a better spinoff of Founders Quickshot just because it''s still obtainable inside the game. Thrasher just starts off and turns into a laser beam.
Thrasher is, hands down, the best SMG in the game. It''s unlikely that you would compare Ratatats'' base statistics to Thrasher. It''s unlikely that the competition will be close.
Ratatat excels different, though. Gun perk options transform into an absolute powerhouse, and it suddenly becomes almost better than Thrasher. But it''s just another damage-stacking flaw that allows Ratatat to stand off from the rest.
Each shot is awarded 1.8 percent more damage for a second, and this buff increases by up to 15 times. Considering this is a rapid-firing SMG, getting those shots in will only take seconds, and as long as you have monsters in your line of sight, the rest will be smooth sailing.
Everyone has a friend who rolls around with a launcher no matter the mission, but they don''t have to observe the light of day as often. They are extremely situational, and when you need them, youve to make sure you use the best one to clear all of the monsters as quickly as possible.
The De-Atomizer is also one of the most powerful launchers in the game, but its perk potential allows it to transform into a demolition machine. Using the increasing ring of damage perk can greatly ease clearing people, and it is also a complex hit machine.
The Huskcleaver is one of the best melee weapons in the game, offering an incredible critical chance even at lower levels. This buff allows the Ninja class to have a large impact on close-range combat.
While the weapon is a little slower, it has a heavy attack that propels the player forward, causing three hits in succession. It will be very easy to destroy Husks in a couple of strikes.
Youll notice that all of the weapons listed do have close competitors that show up in comparison. If you have an alternate that has almost the same stat line, you may be in a position to avoid any disadvantage. These weapons increased because of their perk options, thus making them more flexible.
We were kept from naming any mystic, founder, or event weapons, just because it''s almost impossible to get your hands on them, and they''re certainly the finest weapons in the game with no doubts.
Keep an eye on the patch notes, since today''s best weapon can suddenly fall out of the meta with a simple patch. This spreadsheet will help you see how your arsenal stacks up against the rest, as well as monitor any improvements to the power rankings in the future.
