Submachine Guns, abbreviated as SMGs, are class of weapons available to players in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

Submachine Guns are usually good in close-range combat.
Ranges across all 5 rarities. It is usually a go-to weapon to bring anywhere.
Available in Epic and Legendary rarities. With a magazine size of 40, it can do good damage.
Ranges from Uncommon to Rare (includes Legendary in Starry Suburbs). It can do so much damage especially when headshotting the opponent.

- These are meant more for close to mid-range; their damage drops off very quickly at higher ranges.
- A high rate of fire makes SMGs great for countering structures, especially when an opponent is attempting to build at the same time.
- It is very easy to run out of ammo due to its high rate of fire, so keep an eye on ammo while using one.
