The Shoot Button in the Armory is a button introduced in the 12.6.0 update. It makes the player shoot using the currently selected weapon. The player reloads just like in the battle, but there is actually is an infinite amount of magazines/clips in the weapon, no matter how much time is spent when shooting with a weapon. This button is found under the character in the Armory, and it only appears when the player is in the weapons section. The player shoots 1/3 (rounded) of the magazine, if there is a magazine. After reloading twice, the player shoots full magazines before reloading until the button is released.
- The Armory has been changed several times:
- In the 4.0.0 update, the Armory UI has changed for the weaponry. Instead of "Guns", "Melee", "Premium" (Heavy) and "Special", the Armory UI has divided the weaponry in 5 categories: Primary, Backup, Melee, Special, and Premium.
- In the 8.0.0 update, the Armory's UI has entirely changed. The player can scroll in through the weapons from each category. The same with the Accessories (hat, cape, boots), Armor, Gear and even Skins.
- In the 11.0.0 update, the Armory's UI has changed into a modern-looking armory.
- However, that UI of the Armory looked similar to the PC counterpart's Armory UI.
- In the 14.0.0 update, drastic changes didn't happen, but the Armory's UI has a more futuristic theme, it looks slightly bigger and the player is found on the right part of the screen instead of the left.
- Gear was entirely removed from the Armory in the 10.2.0 update, and instead, the gear was used as pick-ups, until the 11.1.0 update, which introduced Gadgets.
- The Sniper category for weapons was introduced in the 10.2.0 update.
- Masks were introduced in the 10.3.0 update, as a replacement for the Helmet.
- In the old updates, in the Gear section, players were able to buy extra health, ammunition and armor.
- In the 11.0.0 update, the Skin section was divided into multiple groups: "Male, Female, Special, Premium and Editor". However, ever since this section has been merged to the Wear section, the groups were removed.
- The "Wear" logo has changed into the "Armor" logo in the 11.2.0 update, due to the fact that Skins and Armor have been merged into one category.
- In the 11.0.0 update, the Leagues section was added, due to more League-exclusive items being introduced in the same update (For more information, see Leagues).
- However, it was removed in the 12.5.0 update and brought back again in the 12.5.3 update.
- Pets and Gadgets were introduced in the same update, the 11.1.0 update.
- As of the 11.4.0 update, several sections have new sound effects when selecting one of those sections.
- For mobile phones, there are 4 columns of content available in the Armory, while in tablets, there are 3.
- In the 12.6.0 update, the "Shoot" button has introduced. Pressing this button will make the character shoot a selected weapon.
- In the 16.4.0 update, when the player shoots the weapon, they would only shoot around 33% of the weapon's capacity, then reload, instead of 100% of the weapon's capacity, then reload, just like before.
- However, once the player reloads twice while constantly shooting, the third time they would shoot would make them use the full capacity of the weapon instead of one-third.
