In this Fortnite Drum Gun Guide, we will guide you on the newest weapon introduced in Fortnite called the Drum Gun. The game is currently nearing the end of its fourth season and the developers are busy churning out new updates for the game with each one coming with new weapons or new game modes. Drum Gun was recently introduced in the massively popular Battle Royale mode and we have all the details about it for you here.
Fortnite is a Battle Royale game and it is one of the most popular ones out there at the moment. The game is now an year old and it is still running in its early access mode with developers constantly adding or removing content from the game. With each update, they seem to add new game modes, weapons and remove some of the items which are not generally popular among the community.
Fortnite Drum Gun
Our Fortnite Drum Gun Guide details everything that you need to know about the latest weapon to join the roster of diverse weapons in Fortnite. We will guide on its different rarities and their base damage. We will also tell you where to find this sweet weapon and share some other tips and tricks to help you score some kills with this retro weapon.
Drum Gun Rarities
Currently, the Drum Gun is available is two different rarities i.e. Uncommon and Rare. We currently do not have a Common or a Legendary Dum Gun in the game. We do not know if they might be added in the future but if the weapon is successful in the game and developers tend to keep it in the game, we might get Common and Legendary versions as well.
The Uncommon version of Drum Gun has 26 base damage while the Rare Dum Gun has 27 damage. The Rare Drum Gun benefits from a quicker reload time of 3 seconds, which is 3.15 seconds for the Uncommon Drum Gun. They both use Medium Ammo. Each Drum Gun carries 50 bullets in the magazine with a fire rate of 9.
Dum Gun Locations
As with any other guns in the game, there are no fixed locations to find a Drum Gun. You will have to look around in chests, houses, corpses of killed players or normal places where you normally find guns from. They can also be obtained from Vending Machines scattered around the map.
Tips and Tricks
The most important aspect while using the Drum Gun is that despite the big magazine, the recoil and ammo spread is huge. This makes continuous fire useless and less accurate. We recommend that unless the target is standing right in front of you, you use controlled bursts to take down targets.
This will help you land more hits on the target and less on the area around him.
If you get the option of choosing either a Drum Gun or an SMG, we recommend that you go for the Drum Gun. Although SMGs are also a good weapon, Drum Gun offer greater damage and more range than most SMGs. We do not recommend that you pick a Drum Gun over an Assault rifle of any sort since it does not fall in the same category.
At this moment, the best Drum Gun combination is to use it with a high damage output shotgun for close encounters. The Drum Gun’s recoil and weapon spread can sometimes make it harder for you to hit moving targets at close range so keep a shotgun handy just for those pesky jumpers.
