Unluckily, at this time of writing, pumps are not back in Fortnite during this season. According to SypherPK, the weapon may come back this year. In his opinion, instead of reintroducing the gold or purple pump shotgun, the green or the blue would work.
Also, the pumps in Fortnite are accessible in creative mode. So the players who are missing their favorite weapon can still relive the experience from time to time. Pumps in Fortnite can make an emergence in LTM (Limited Time Mode) as LTM attributes keep changing and Pump shotgun might soon feature there.
There is one more issue i.e. Upgrade stations. Even though we have NPCs on Fortnite island which enables players to upgrade their weapons in exchange for gold bars. But the number of NPCs who actually let players upgrade the weapons is way less than the number of upgrade stations.
