In Battle Royale Weapons are the main items that are used to deal damage towards opponents. Weapons can range from Assault Weapons, Shotguns, SMGs, Pistols, Sniper Rifles, Crossbows, Melees and Explosive Weapons. Each weapon can have up to seven possible rarities: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Mythic and Exotic. The higher the rarity, the better the stats are, but are also quite hard to obtain.

Weapons can be obtained from Chests, Supply Drops, floor loot, Supply Llamas, and the loot of eliminated players. Newly unvaulted weapons and boss weapons can be obtained from Bosses and Traders. Some weapons can be obtained by defeating AIs such as Henchmen, Marauders, or IO Guards. With the new crafting system, some weapons can be found from crafting.
