PRIME SHOTGUN: PRIMED AND READY
It’s prime time.
With the new Prime Shotgun, deal the most damage with the first shot of the clip — no warm-up required! Though not as powerful as the first, the remaining three shots offer a consistent damage rate across all three shots. Of course, you can keep track of how many shots remain with the on-screen ammo counter, but you can also keep track with the shotgun’s light display.
Want to deliver only heavy hitters? You can reload after the first shot, but if you need to deliver a fast follow-up, the other three shots have your back. The Prime Shotgun can be found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, fishing, and sharks.
UPCOMING SUMMER CELEBRATION
Don’t see summer festivities in-game? No need to sweat — this year’s summer celebration begins in just a matter of days! Keep an eye out for celebration details this week.

FORTNITE X DRAGON BALL— Shiina (@ShiinaBR) July 6, 2022
Last year, I was made aware of a possible Dragon Ball collaboration in Fortnite, but until today, there hasn't been much news about it, so I thought it was canceled.
Today, Epic has added a logo to the files identical to a logo from Dragon Ball. pic.twitter.com/1aBo3r3El3
