Go Close Proximity with the Machine Pistol

Fortnite Machine Pistol

Like to fight your battles up close and personal? The Machine Pistol deals intense damage when your opponent’s near at hand. It’s effective at longer ranges too, as long as you’re firing at shorter bursts to maintain accuracy. This Pistol has an extended magazine size for slightly more sustained fire.

Find Machine Pistols on the ground, in normal Chests, Rare Chests, and Supply Drops, and from fishing and sharks. 🦈


Competitive Notes

  • The Machine Pistol is not included in competitive playlists but is subject to an evaluation period.
