Our guide to Fortnite: Battle Royale's top Legendary (or Yellow) guns and other weapons that can be found on the map.

Whether you classify them as Yellow or Legendary items, gaining the top-tier of guns and weapons in Fortnite: Battle Royale will grant you a significant advantage in the thick of battle.

Legendary weapons don't differ from their more common counterparts when it comes to how they feel to shoot. Drill down to the numbers and you'll find basic stats like "Damage" and "Reload Time" will be better overall. They may not appear stronger, but they'll be the deadliest, most efficient model of the gun available.

By the time the frantic end-game battle rolls around - where there's a constant balancing act to be had between taking defensive measures and delivering outright obliteration - you'll be glad you took the time to rummage around every nook and cranny on the map, in the hope of getting a more and more powerful collection of weapons together.

In this article you'll find all of the stats and insight you need to know about each type of Legendary gun or weapon in Battle Royale. Just keep in mind that this is a continuously evolving article, and we'll update it when any other Legendary Weapons are added. Do bear with us on this front!

Once you're done here, make sure you check out our weapon tier list, and our guide to the best guns and weapons which takes a bigger overview of the arsenal on offer in Battle Royale.

Legendary (Yellow) SCAR Assault Rifle

It's always handy to have an Assault Rifle about you, as they're effective at both short and mid-range combat. The damage is good, the accuracy is pretty solid, and it's a great all-rounder that will help you live just a little longer.

Here are some quick facts about the Legendary version of the SCAR Assault Rifle.

  • DPS: 234.5
  • Damage: 36
  • Fire Rate: 5.5
  • Mag: 30
  • Reload: 2.1

Legendary (Yellow) Burst Assault Rifle

While the SCAR fires in full-auto, the Burst rattles off remarkably accurate three shot bursts. It's less of an all-rounder in this regard, but it excels even more when it comes to mid to long range fights.

Here are some quick facts about the Legendary version of the Burst Assault Rifle.

  • DPS: 134.1
  • Damage: 33
  • Fire Rate: 4.06
  • Mag: 30
  • Reload: 2.3

Legendary (Yellow) Shotgun

A heavy hitter in every regard, the Heavy Shotgun fires off booming rounds that can devastate enemies up close. It lacks power at range, but as soon as things turn close quarters this weapon packs a huge punch. Land a headshot and it's almost always an instant take down.

Here's a breakdown of all the Heavy Shotgun's stats.

  • DPS: 77
  • Damage: 77
  • Fire Rate: 1.0
  • Mag: 7
  • Reload: 5.6

Legendary (Yellow) Grenade Launcher

We probably don't need to explain to you what a Grenade Launcher does (although it is worth pointing out that it uses regular grenades as ammo), and the Legendary version is very handy to have in your toolkit.

Here are the basic facts on the weapon's stats, correct at the time of publishing this article:

  • DPS: 110
  • Damage: 100
  • Fire Rate: 1
  • Mag: 6
  • Reload: 2.7

Legendary (Yellow) Rocket Launcher

Rocket Launchers are enormously helpful when it comes to smashing end-game forts to smithereens. It is also, of course, an extremely blunt yet effective weapon for handling opponents too. Just don't forget to bring a mop to clean up afterwards...

Here's everything you need to know about the core stats of the Legendary Rocket Launcher in Fortnite: Battle Royale.

  • DPS: 90.7
  • Damage: 121
  • Fire Rate: 0.75
  • Mag: 1
  • Reload: 1.6

Legendary (Yellow) Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle

Far better than finding yourself in a frantic duel is, of course, to eliminate the opponent before they've even seen you coming. To that end, you have the humble yet effective Sniper Rifle.

We reckon the Legendary Semi-Auto is the one to track down, and these are the stats you can look forward to taking advantage of if you do happen to find one in the field.

  • DPS: 79.2
  • Damage: 66
  • Fire Rate: 1.2
  • Mag: 10
  • Reload: 2.3

Legendary (Yellow) Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle

A slower fire rate than the Semi-Auto, but packing far more of a punch - the Bolt-Action is a must-have for taking out opponents from afar.

  • DPS: 38.3
  • Damage: 116
  • Fire Rate: 0.33
  • Mag: 1
  • Reload: 2.7

Legendary (Yellow) SMG

Classed as an SMG, the Minigun is an excellent method of obliteration. Just be warned that you're unsteady on your feet while using it, and it's not exactly the most precise weapon of destruction.

The Minigun's stats look a little like this:

  • DPS: 204
  • Damage: 17
  • Fire Rate: 12
  • Mag: 0
  • Reload: 4.5

Legendary (Yellow) Suppressed Pistol

Silent but deadly, the Suppressed Pistol is perfect for taking out enemies at close range in a matter of seconds. Just remember to tap the trigger rapidly when they're within range as it's a weapon that relies on landing shots in rapid succession.

  • DPS: 189
  • Damage: 28
  • Fire Rate: 6.75
  • Mag: 16
  • Reload: 1.3

Legendary (Yellow) Hand Cannon

The beefiest pistol of them all, the Hand Cannon delivers booming shots with extreme stopping power. What it lacks in accuracy and fire rate, it makes up for in damage. Land a headshot and you'll be laughing.

  • DPS: 62.4
  • Damage: 78
  • Fire Rate: 0.8
  • Mag: 7
  • Reload: 2.0
