The weapon has been enabled in all rarities after the arrival of the v19.20 February 8 Hotfix for Fortnite Chapter 3, Season 1, so you can collect different variants of it by exploring the Island for a short while.

This weapon is ideal for close-combat situations as it can deal up to 19 damage to enemies, and you can use it over longer ranges as well by firing at shorter bursts to maintain your accuracy during combat.

The Fortnite Machine Pistol also boasts an extended magazine size for slightly more sustained fire, so you’ll be able to shoot your opponents continuously without having to worry about reloading too often.
