Weapons are items that can be crafted by the player that are used to kill monsters in Fortnite. Weapons are color-coded based on their Rarity and are given a Power Level (indicated by a lightning bolt icon) based on both their rarity and upgrade level, this also decides the amount of damage that can be done with this weapon. Within missions, players can Craft weapons from their inventory using schematics (although this requires certain materials) or they may be found in containers and loot chests scattered across the map. They come in many different forms, including laser, elemental, and normal weapons, all having certain perks and drawbacks to using them.

Durability[edit | edit source]

Durability is the measure of how long the weapon lasts. When durability reaches 0, the weapon breaks and is unusable, but it can be crafted again using the available schematic.
