Fortnite fans who play the game often will be well aware of the Drum Gun. It was one of the most powerful guns in the game. Note the use of was in that sentence but this gun is no more. Epic Games has retired Fortnite’s Drum Gun as part of a minor update that’s rolling out for one of the most popular games on the planet right now.
The Drum Gun has been available in Fornite since July this year. It did allow for a lot of action in the game as it had a 50 round capacity and a high rate of fire. The gun allowed players to take out multiple opponents at once with just a single magazine.
The gun also proved to be useful when trying to stop an opponent from building a structure like a shelter when they’re being hunted. Players could let loose on the structure and still be let with ammo to take down the opponent once the structure was destroyed.
Since Fortnite developer Epic Games taketh, it also giveth. It has added a new Suppressed Assault Rifle as part of this minor update which is more focused on stealth and precision. It’s not like the Drum Gun in any way and that’s really why Epic Games is now adding this game to the title.
