The Drum Gun Finally Makes Its Way Into Fortnite With Patch v4.5, Here’s The Full Patch Notes

The Drum gun has to be the most interesting gun introduced to Fortnite. After the rocket launch created an inter-dimensional rift last week, its evident that the rift would spit out things from the past.

Among the first things making their way into Fortnite from the past is the Drum Gun, a gun that has been leaked for a while and was officially teased a few days ago. The Drum Gun obviously resembles the weapons found in the World War 2 era.

The Drum Gun offers a fast shooting rate similar to an SMG making it lethal for those close-range fights. The Drum Gun could be found in two variants, an uncommon variant and a rare variant. Both of these variants offer a 26 or 27 base damage respectively, pretty typical for a gun that packs Medium ammo, and would definitely be an excellent choice for those willing to fasten their seatbelts.

Next, Epic Games also introduced the Stink Bomb, along with the Freedom Herald Pistol to the “Save The World” campaign in Fortnite.
