Charge shotguns are a highly disliked class of shotguns as they have a longish wind-up time. Fortnite players largely dislike this shotgun and prefer almost any other shotgun over it. However, professional players have been utilizing the weapon and timing their edits with the wind up of the weapon.

Moreover, many players had tried this weapon back in Season 3 when it first came out and gotten used to it. Therefore, this shotgun can be lethal when put in the right hands.

Tactical Shotguns are the best replacement for pump shotguns in the game, and they deal enough damage to even two-shot enemies at a close range.

At a higher rarity, they can dish out serious damage and are pretty accurate as well. However, they could feel a bit underwhelming if the players are missing shots in rapid succession or simply using a lower rarity of the weapon.
