Perhaps the most exciting leak to come from the Fortnite Battle Royale V4.5 patch so far comes in the form of an all-new Assault Rifle which will be called the “Drum Gun”.

The June 27th V4.5 patch for Fortnite Battle Royale introduced the highly anticipated Playground Limited Time Mode and the all-new Dual Pistols, making it one of the most exciting updates in recent memory.


However, it looks like Epic Games is just warming up as data miners have now discovered files for another brand new weapon which should be arriving some time “next week”.

The leak comes from the well known @TwoEpicBuddies account that is known for its accurate and regular leaks, so this information should be on point.


The new weapon will be called the Drum Gun and be part of the Assault Rifle class. As for rarity, you should be able to get your hands on one pretty soon after it goes live as it will come in Uncommon and Rare varieties.

The first image of the Drum Gun can be found below. It seems to be more of an “old school” weapon than we are used to and has a lot of similarities to the look of a Thompson submachine gun.

Naturally, new weapons are always greeted with a great deal of excitement, so expect to hear a lot about the Drum Gun over the next few days!


We will keep you updated with more information about the weapon’s features, release date, and more as it becomes available.

We’re now in the seventh week of Fortnite’s Marvel-themed season meaning that there’s not long to go until the current battle pass items are locked away for good. Here’s everything you need to know about the latest challenges to help with your experience gains.

As with every other season, XP is vital in Fortnite. Whether you’re trying to unlock one of the 100 base tiers in the Season 4 Battle Pass, or you’re pushing beyond that for ultra-rare skins, there’s always something to pursue.


Challenges are often the best way to help boost your XP gains. Most can be knocked off in a matter of minutes for some of the biggest XP dumps possible in the battle royale. If you’ve already been ticking objectives off each week, you’ll feel right at home this time around.

From searching chests to tallying eliminations, the Week 7 challenges couldn’t be simpler. Here’s our complete overview of the eight unique tasks on offer.

Be on the lookout for enemies near Doom’s Domain this week.

You’ll be jumping around the map quite a bit this week as almost every challenge will take you to a new location. Finding eliminations at Craggy Cliffs should be a breeze as this is sure to be a hotspot over the next few days. Just be prepared for an immediate fight every time you drop here in Week 7.

The same can be said for Doom’s Domain as players will be looking to enter the vault for easy XP. Make sure you have a decent loadout before heading in as you’re sure to face some opposition here.

One rather unique challenge this week asks you to deal damage in a very specific way. First, you’ll need to find and equip Storm’s Whirlwind Blast ability. Once you’ve got an enemy in your sights, use this ability to knock them back. Once they’re pushed off course, you’ll then need to swap your weapons and deal 1,000 damage.


To tick off multiple challenges at once, you could always find Storm’s ability, then head to Craggy Cliffs, or even Coral Castle. The full list of objectives for Week 7 can be found below.

Fortnite Season 4 Week 7 Challenges:

  • Search Chests at Catty Corner (7)
  • Eliminations at Craggy Cliffs (3)
  • Enter the Vault in Doom’s Domain
  • Destroy Cobwebs at The Authority (3)
  • Discover Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House laboratory
  • Drive a car from Sweaty Sands to Misty Meadows in less than 4 minutes without getting out

  • Deal damage to opponents at Coral Castle (500)

Stark Industries will be swarmed by teams looking for the secret Lake House

If you’re struggling with the unique tasks this week, here’s a few quick pointers. Storm’s ability can be used to knock enemies off high ground vantage points. Any fall damage will count towards your weekly objective.

Additionally, Tony Stark’s hidden Lake House can be found just North of the Stark Industries POI.
