The Overpowered Nature of Fortnite’s Mythic Havoc Pump Shotgun
Players of Fortnite have realized that the Havoc Pump Shotgun, one of the new weapons in Chapter 4 Season 2, is capable of taking out rivals with a single shot. Epic Games is known to shuffle the available content in Fortnite each season, and the weapons are no exception. The Havoc Pump Shotgun is a fresh addition to the game and gamers will have to adjust quickly.
The second season of Fortnite Chapter 4 has begun with an abundance of new additions. The most prominent transformation is the completely new Mega biome which replaces Faulty Splits and the southeast corner of the island. It has been themed as a cyberpunk-inspired, anime-styled Neo Tokyo. Additionally, two new vehicles, the Rogue Bike and the Nitro Drifter are now available for players to traverse the map with. There is, of course, much more than that to explore in the new season of Fortnite.
Attracting considerable interest is the fresh Fortnite weapon, the Havoc Pump Shotgun. Even at a low rarity, it stands out as a highly efficient and accurate choice. The only drawback of the Havoc Pump Shotgun is its slow reload speed, which offsets its high damage. This makes it an ideal switch to or to fire off when making walls in build mode. Where the Havoc Pump Shotgun shines is its Mythic rarity form.
The Mythic rarity Havoc Pump Shotgun offers the highest possible damage output of any single shot, with an impressive 250 damage. This means that an opponent with full health and a shield can be eliminated in just one shot when using the Mythic version. The gold version, however, has a maximum damage potential of 190 and is still a force to be reckoned with.
Getting hold of a Mythic rarity Havoc Pump Shotgun is exceptionally difficult. There is no certainty of it dropping at all. Nevertheless, those who desire to search for it do have a few options. One of them is taking out the Mega City boss Highcard. The only other known way is to find it in Fortnite’s vaults. There is also a theoretical possibility of an NPC selling the gun.
The Havoc Pump Shotgun may be a powerful weapon, but it is not a surefire way to victory in Fortnite. Its reload time is long, so staying out of range and making the opponent miss is wise. It is most effective in close quarters, so try to keep shotgun-wielding enemies at bay. An alternative is to secure the Havoc Pump Shotgun first and fire the initial shot. Health and shield may not be enough to guarantee success, since it may be a bit overpowered, so try to be the one with the gun more often.
Fortnite can now be played on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, as well as Xbox One and Series X/S.
