Pistols are a type of weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. The purpose of these weapons is for short range to medium range combat. Pistols use a variety of ammo types.

Functionality

Pistols fill the role of a short to medium range weapon and are often used for up close engagements or medium range gunfights. Pistols are the most versatile weapons in Battle Royale, as they have a range of uses across all ranges. Some pistols are for closer ranges, have high fire-rate caps and good hipfire, whilst others are for long range, have slow fire-rates and deal high damage at distance. Depending on the Pistol in your hand, the uses it will have in combat have great variation across the board.
