Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3 marked the start of a huge party on the island. Epic Games has continued to keep the season fresh by adding new content throughout. The latest weapon to join the Fortnite loot pool is the Prime shotgun and this guide will tell you everything you need to know about the weapon.
The Prime shotgun is an extremely strong weapon to have in your back pocket. When the weapon is fully loaded, the first bullet will hit your opponent with a huge amount of fire power. The three remaining bullets will then deal a consistent amount of damage. If you want to continue taking advantage of the hard hitting first bullet, you can always reload straight away. However, you will have to take into account that the reload speed is on the slower side.
