Fortnite v21.30 Patch Notes:

Prime Shotgun:

With the new Prime Shotgun, deal the most damage with the first shot of the clip — no warm-up required! Though not as powerful as the first, the remaining three shots offer a consistent damage rate across all three shots. Of course, you can keep track of how many shots remain with the on-screen ammo counter, but you can also keep track with the shotgun’s light display.

Want to deliver only heavy hitters? You can reload after the first shot, but if you need to deliver a fast follow-up, the other three shots have your back. The Prime Shotgun can be found from the ground, Chests, Supply Drops, Reality Saplings, fishing, and sharks.

Stats for the different Prime Shotgun variants are given below-
