Fortnite Lever Action Shotgun – how to get it, stats, and more

It’s an odd one.

The Lever Action Shotgun was added to Fortnite in update 15.20, bringing yet another style of Shotgun into the game. You can find this weapon from chest, supply drops, and as floor loot anywhere on the map.

It can drop in five different rarities, all of which seem to be active in the game right now. The Lever Action Shotgun can drop as Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. To get your hands on it, all you need to do is play the game as normal, and search every chest and supply drop that you see.

The weapon can also be upgraded at relevant NPCs, so if you do get a lower rarity weapon you can always increase the rarity of it by spending some gold.

As for how it plays, we have managed to get our hands on it in a couple of roads and so far we are really likely it. We need to spend more time with it in the game before deciding how good it is in the long term, but there is nothing about it right now that is offputting in the same way as the Lever Action Rifle was a bit of a turn off for a lot of people.
