Dual Pistols: Semi Automatic.

Functionality

The Dual Pistols perform differently to other pistols, in that the player uses two of them at the same time, working as a 2 round burst. The guns are actually fully automatic and the single press of the fire button will fire both weapons together.

Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • Be wary of the Dual Pistol's magazine size, at it fires both guns at once, meaning half the number of shots per magazine.
  • Dual Pistols can act as a good substitute for Submachine Guns, primarily due to how high headshot damage is and their fire rate.
    • Assuming you have damaged an opponent and they are below 100 HP, you can kill them within 1-2 shots.
