Best Weapons to Deal Critical Damage

We have compiled a list of popular weapons in Fortnite to aid you in selecting a weapon that excels at dealing critical damage.

  • Havoc Suppressed Assault Rifle – 1.5x
  • Havoc Pump Shotgun – 2x
  • Combat Shotgun – 1.75x
  • Overclocked Pulse Rifle – 1.5x
  • Heavy Sniper Rifle – 2.5x
  • Combra DMR – 1.65x

The Rare Blue Havoc Pump Shotgun could serve for this in an effective way as it deals with 120 DMG per regular shot and it’s CRIT DMG is 240.

You can even multiply these weapon’s regular damage and add CRIT DMG multiplier to it according to your requirements. You can add it according to the amount of critical damage you want to deal with.

It is also important to note that Melee weapons do not have a critical damage rating. One of the most popular item in Fortnite Chapter 4 Season 2 is the Blade. But despite being so popular it is not capable of dealing critical damage due to lack of the critical damage rating in it. This is the same reason why other weapons without critical damage like Pickaxe, Lightsabers, and other similar weapons are also not ideal for completing the Critical Damage task in Fortnite.

There are also ranged weapons in Fortnite like the Rocket Launcher that have no critical damage either. But thankfully Fortnite has many of the other weapon options with high critical damage that you can use to complete this task.
