A new season is upon us, and everyone's wondering what the best weapons are in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4. With only five inventory slots and tons of options, building the ideal loadout in Fortnite can be challenging. This primer will overview the absolute best weapons to use in the game during Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4.

  • While this guide purposely leaves out Exotics and Mythics, these high-rarity items are definitely worth using if you manage to come across any during your adventures on the Island

What are some of the best weapons to use in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4?

Rocket Ram

Brand-new in Chapter 4 Season 4, the Rocket Ram is a must-have in every Fortnite player's inventory. While not technically a weapon, this multi-use utility/mobility item can dish out damage, but that's not even the best part.

Activating the Rocket Ram will send you flying in whatever direction you're facing, destroying any structures in your way and dealing impact damage. With that, you can use the Rocket Ram to escape a sticky situation or to chase enemy players who are fleeing.

Rocket Rams are easy to find, too, so there's no excuse not to reserve one of your five inventory spots for a Rocket Ram. Without a Rocket Ram, you lose access to the best repositioning tool in Fortnite.

Infiltrator Pump Shotgun

Another new addition to Chapter 4 Season 4, the Infiltrator Pump Shotgun may be the best iteration of a shotgun ever released in Fortnite. The Infiltrator Pump Shotgun has good range and a tight spread like the classic Pump Shotgun, but it also shoots fast, like a Combat Shotgun or the Tactical Shotgun.

If you're after pure damage, opt for the Sharp Tooth Shotgun. Otherwise, the Infiltrator Pump Shotgun is superior. This hybrid shotgun is an all-around beast and perfectly suited for the average Fortnite player.

Twin Mag Assault Rifle

Joining the catalogue of new weapons in Chapter 4 Season 4 is the Twin Mag Assault Rifle. The Twin Mag Assault Rifle gets its name for its double-sided magazine that makes every other reload faster.

This new assault rifle deals a surprisingly high amount of damage combined with a decent fire rate and mag size to boot. The recoil can be difficult to control, but once you get used to it, you'll love the Twin Mag Assault Rifle.

What vaults the Twin Mag Assault Rifle into the upper echelon of Chapter 4 Season 4 weapons is its flexibility. Because the Twin Mag Assault Rifle is hitscan, has a scope, and has first-shot accuracy, it's serviceable at extended ranges. However, the Twin Mag Assault Rifles also sports impressive hip-fire accuracy, allowing it to function completely fine as a clean-up weapon for spraying weakened enemies that are up in your face.

Thermal DMR

The Infiltrator Pump Shotgun and Twin Mag Assault Rifle will cover all your close-quarters and medium-range combat needs. That said, for long-distance fights, the Thermal DMR is one of the best weapons to use in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4. 

The Thermal DMR is a Marksman Rifle with a thermal scope that you can toggle on and off. Even if you're not a fan of the Thermal DMR, the thermal sight is excellent for spotting enemies you might not see with the naked eye.

Even though the Thermal DMR deals 32 to 40 damage per shot to the body, it shoots relatively fast and has a bulky magazine. With a steady trigger finger, you can use the Thermal DMR to make quick work of foes.

Suppressed Sniper Rifle

The Suppressed Sniper Rifle is undoubtedly one of the best weapons to use in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4. Being able to one-shot kill players is a game-changer, and the Suppressed Sniper Rifle can do just that.

A single precise shot of the Suppressed Sniper Rifle will send your opponent back to the Lobby. The Suppressed Sniper Rifle is a high-risk, high-reward weapon. Nevertheless, if you can land your shots with it, the Suppressed Sniper Rifle can turn a losing fight in your favour.

The pool of weapons in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 4 is extensive, but the guns listed above are, by far, the best options to pick up and put to use. You can only hold five items in your inventory, so grab some healing items, a Rocket Ram, and fill the remaining slots with a combination of the Infiltrator Pump Shotgun, Twin Mag Assault Rifle, Thermal DMR, and the Suppressed Sniper Rifle.

Crafting your Fortnite loadout with the best weapons in Chapter 4 Season 4 will go a long way in unlocking the Prized Llama Back Bling and all the Survivor Medals
