The Revolver is a Pistol in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in the Pre-Season.

Functionality

The Revolver is a slow firing, 6 round pistol, with a good headshot multiplier. It has first shot accuracy, and uses medium ammo, so its range values and uses are comparable to an Assault Rifle, minus the fast firing. The revolver suffers at close ranges due to its slow fire rate and wide hip-fire spread. The weapon can function at long ranges, as it is hitscan, but it can be difficult due to the lack of a scope.

Upgrading and Crafting

The Revolver can be created from upgrading a Makeshift Revolver using 2/4/6 Mechanical Parts depending on rarity. As such, only an Uncommon, Rare or Epic Revolver can be crafted.

Stats

Revolvers range from dealing 54 Damage per shot to 66 Damage per shot (81-99 damage per second). All Revolvers use Medium Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Medium Ammo. The Revolver has a headshot multiplier of 2.0x.

Strategy Guide

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


  • The Revolver has a low firerate, and so accuracy is important when using it. Missing a shot with a Revolver can be very unforgiving due to the long time to take a second shot.
  • Head-shots with any rarity of the Revolver do over 100 damage at close ranges, allowing for instant eliminations early game.
  • Revolvers are weak against builds, and enemies using high fire-rate weapons. Although the burst damage of a revolver is decent, you can be quickly outpaced by rapid low damage shots from an opponent using almost any other weapon.
