Shotguns got some major improvements in Update v20.30 for Fortnite’s Creative mode. The developers from Epic Games implemented changes that increased the damage for most shots, especially headshots.

The headshot damage for the Ranger Shotgun and Drum Shotgun, for example, increased significantly, but no change in the base pellet damage. Still, if you’re good at landing headshots, this is a noteworthy improvement.

Fans of the Striker Pump Shotgun and Auto Shotgun will be happy to know that both pellet damage and headshot damage are increased.

While all shotguns have their damage improved, a damage cap has been implemented that affects the maximum damage a single shot can do. In other words, with the exception of the Legendary Dragon’s Breath Shotgun, all shotguns will no longer deal 200 damage per shot.

Anyway, do you want to drive the Armored Battle Bus? You can now because Update v20.30 introduces this heavily armored vehicle in Fortnite Creative. All you have to do is use the Armored Battle Bus Spawner and place the bus on the ground so you can start driving it.
