Strategy

  • The Revolver has a somewhat decent fire rate and does not take that long to reload, so it is best used for medium-range attacks or as a substitute to a sniper rifle when the player doesn't have one.
  • A little known fact about the Revolver is that headshots do over 100 damage at close ranges, allowing for instant kills in the early game. Due to this extreme headshot damage, it can also be considered worth it to run the Revolver with a Pump Shotgun, as it can be sort-of considered a single-pellet shotgun of sorts.
  • The Hand Cannon and the Legendary Revolver are close in power, but the Revolver has a higher DPS and fire rate than the Hand Cannon, while the Hand Cannon has Higher damage per shot and needs fewer shots to kill at long ranges (min damage 50, 100 on headshot).

Trivia

  • The Revolver seems to be based off a Vintage .357 Magnum Revolver with some custom engravings on it.
  • The Legendary Revolver is based off the Chiappa Rhino, possibly a 40 or 50DS. The Fortnite version does not have a 6 o'clock bore axis like the Rhino.
  • The Revolver was modified and re-introduced as the Six Shooter.
  • The Six Shooter was vaulted, and replaced by a closer variant to the original Revolver called the Scoped Revolver. That has also been vaulted, and the Six Shooter is no longer vaulted, but the Six Shooter is only available in Tilted Town. Because of the Batman crossover introduced in Patch 10.31, the Six Shooter has returned to the Vault.
  • The weapon is way faster than the Hand Cannon with 1.5 fire rate beating 0.8 fire rate.
  • There are three revolvers in the game, the Revolver, the Six Shooter and the Scoped Revolver, all of which were vaulted once. The Revolver and Six Shooter were returned to the game, but the Six Shooter is only available in Tilted Town. Because of the Batman crossover introduced in Patch 10.31, the Six Shooter has returned to the Vault.
  • The Revolver used to use Light Bullets before being changed to Medium Bullets following patch 2.5.0.
  • This was the Sixth item to head to the Vault after the Tactical Submachine Gun.
  • The Revolver deals the highest damage for a weapon that uses Medium Bullets, with the Legendary variant dealing 66 damage.
  • The reason why the Revolver was not used often was because of the damage drop off with the weapon that made the Hand Cannon better.
  • There were Epic and Legendary variants of the Revolver that were leaked in the files of Patch 9.30.
  • This is the third weapon to be available in all five rarities. The first being Assault Rifle, and the second being the Burst Assault Rifle (currently in the Vault).
    • This is also the first pistol to be available in all five rarities.
    • This is also the first firearm to be available in Fortnite with rarities that were not available before unvaulting.
  • This is the eleventh item to be unvaulted, following the Pump Shotgun.
