Fortnite Season 3 has finally begun and there’s a lot of new aspects about the Chapter 2 entry including a flooded map and Jason Mamoa’s Aquaman. However, in addition to the hunky king of the seas, Season 3 has also provided a new charge shotgun that you’ll discover how to get and use here.
With a map that resembles the movie Waterworld in parts, Fortnite Season 3 is a partly flooded affair that comes with a whirlpool, great white loot sharks, and more. There’s also a “cool twist to Umbrellas,” as well as some fresh weapons.
In regard to weapons, below you’ll discover how to use the new charge shotgun to deal extra damage.
Where to find new mythic charge shotgun in Fortnite
You can find the new mythic charge shotgun in Fortnite as normal loot to pick up off the floor.
Either that, or you can find the new mythic charge shotgun by opening Fortnite chests.
Once you do get the weapon, you should notice a circular charge/gage when aiming.
This is so you can deal an extra amount of damage as opposed to a standard amount.
How to charge the charge shotgun in Fortnite Season 3
You charge the new charge shotgun in Fortnite Season 3 by holding down the shoot button.
Aim the new charge shotgun and hold the shoot button until the meter in the gage moves to red to deal the most amount of damage in Fortnite Season 3.
While it does deal lots of damage, some of the Battle Royale community have complained about the weapon online.
These complainers claim that the weapon is not appropriate because Fortnite is about split-second decisions making a weapon that requires charging impractical.
