Fortnite players were habitually picking the Blue Tactical Shotgun over the Purple and Gold variations as a result of decrease pullout time. The Tac Shotguns were buffed by A recent update.
The current condition of shotguns is a topic of debate in the Fortnite community. Most players favor the Tac within the Pump now — until the Pump is Purple or Gold.
More interestingly, though, was the option of a Blue vs. Purple Tac Shotgun. The Blue Tac needed a quicker pullout time, which was sufficient for many players to choose it over the Gold and Purple variations, such as popular streamer NickMercs.
A recent update to Fortnite has seemingly buffed the pullout time of the Gold and Purple Tac shotguns, however, making them even quicker on the draw than the Blue version.

There were some complaints about the pullout times before Epic made this change. As gamers, Purple and Gold guns should always feel more valuable than Blue and Green guns. This wasn’t the case for many Fortnite players before the recent update.
