The Minigun is a weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Mechanics

The Minigun is a unique type of gun that spits out small ammunition at an outrageous fire rate. However, its main difference from other sub-machine guns is its chaotic and unpredictable spray, unlike the much more specific targeting on other guns. Being introduced in Season 2, the Minigun used to fire non-stop, but was later received a nerf in Season 7 by applying an overheat effect, which meant it couldn't be used for a period of time during cooldown. This effect is the also on the Mounted Turret. After the, "The End" event; when Chapter 2: Season 1 was introduced, it, along with many other weapons, were vaulted.

The Minigun was brought back in patch v12.00, obtainable by killing Henchmen, or you can obtain the Mythic variant, Brutus' Minigun by killling Brutus at The Grotto.

Notes

  • There was a glitch that allowed people using the Deadpool skin were able to deal more damage with the Epic Minigun.
  • It has the phrase "Huska La Vista" engraved into the side of it. This is a reference to Terminator 2, where the Terminator would come to say, "Hasta La Vista" when using a minigun.
  • It has a Vindertech logo on it.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 2, a Mythic variant was introduced: Brutus' Minigun, which can be obtained by killing Brutus.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 2, you could only obtain the Legendary variant through an Upgrade Bench.
