As you might imagine, the Fortnite Solid Gold mode is themed around golden weapons, also known as Legendary tier guns. These are the best weapon variants out there and are usually extremely rare.

The Fortnite Solid Gold mode makes every weapon drop a Legendary. This gives all players a chance to wield a golden gun, and likely means increased drop rates for the hand cannon, minigun, rocket launcher, suppressed pistol, and sniper rifles.

Do remember that you’re not the only player rocking a full Legendary loadout. Literally every other player will have access to the best weapons in the game. Stay on your toes, have fun with some top-tier guns, and try to survive until you’re the last man/lady standing!
