Hand Cannon Overview : Fortnite Battle Royale

So Epic release a new weapon in the Battle Royale or PvP mode of their game Fortnite. Pistols have always been under powered in Fortnite Battle Royale.

So here is a tiny Hand Cannon Overview for you Fortnite lovers.


Hand Cannon Overview : Fortnite Battle Royale


So far there are only 3 things that we know about the Hand Cannon in Fortnite Battle Royale :

  • Fires Heavy ammo.
  • Epic and Legendary rarity.
  • Found in Floor Loot, Treasure Chests and Supply Drops.

That is all Epic has to say about their new weapon but we won’t be able to realize properly how it works until we test it by ourselves. Here is a small teaser of the Hand Cannon. In the video, the Hand Cannon was able to break the ramp easily with a single shot. From this we could conclude that it is going to be a very high damage gun. Who knows, it might be able to kill a guy with a single shot even when he has full shield and full health. But it is definitely going to come with it’s negatives and we are guessing that it could have a very high recoil which may require some skill to control.

Whatever it is, we are pretty sure that is going to make the “pistol” category more popular than it was before in Battle Royale. And we are hoping to see some amazing plays with the Hand Cannon from the players and especially the Pros.
