History
Introduced Patch 6.20
Vaulted 7.10 Content Update #3

The Six Shooter was a pistol in Battle Royale. It is available in Uncommon, Rare, and Epic variants. The Six Shooter holds 6 bullets in its cylinder (hence its name). The Six Shooter could be hip-fired for rapid fire rate, or aimed for better accuracy. It uses Medium Bullets. The Six Shooter may have been a spiritual successor to the Battle Royale Revolver, another handgun that was vaulted at the beginning of September. It was released as part of the Fortnitemares event. The Six Shooter was vaulted on Patch 7.10 Content Update #3, therefore making it only available in Playground, Creative, and 50v50. The Six Shooter was Vaulted to make room for the unvaulting of Dual Pistols and it was not used a lot in game. However the Six Shooter was unvaulted on 10.00 Content Update but could only be found in Tilted Town. With the removal of Tilted Town in the Batman Update, the Six Shooter has been added back to the vault.

The Six Shooter was unvaulted for 24 hours on July 3rd, 2019. Following the Thermal Scoped Assault Rifle, This is the 9th item to be unvaulted for the 14 Days of Summer event

The Six Shooter can still be looted in the Wild West LTM, Playground, and Creative.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The player should have been at least one tile (a floorpiece) away from the target when hip-firing, as the Six Shooter had an incredible amount of crosshair bloom, though aiming reduced bloom drastically while suffering more obvious fall-off.
