Lots of leaks surfaced after Epic Games released its v9.30 patch for Fortnite, and now data miners have managed to grab stats and footage for two upcoming weapons: the Drum Shotgun and the Revolver.

A new Fortnite update means a field day for data miners, as they try and extract any information on future content lined up for the game. The release of the v9.30 patch was no different, with leakers stopping at nothing to provide fans with an insight into upcoming additions.


While fresh skins and cosmetics were revealed, alongside the new Air Strike item, details on two new guns were also extracted: the Drum Shotgun, and the Revolver. Now, data miners have also obtained footage and stats for the weapons.

Epic GamesThe Pump Shotgun was controversially removed in May – could the Drum Shotgun replace it?

The Drum Shotgun

Infamous Fortnite dataminer Lucas7yoshi leaked the Drum Shotgun upon finding it in the update files, but now he’s managed to dig out statistics for it too, giving players more of an insight as to how much damage it can deal.


The gun will be available in Common, Uncommon, and Rare rarity options, and could deal between 4-5 damage per second with a fire rate of 4 per second. Its reload time is also suspected to be between 4.3 and 4.7 seconds depending on rarity, with a magazine size of 12 bullets.

Another leaker KrispyLeaks also provided fans with footage as to how the shotgun could perform in-game.

The Revolver

The leaked Revolver stats are a lot more detailed than the Drum Shotgun’s, and give players a more detailed look into how they could use the gun in the game.


The weapon is said to come in Epic and Legendary rarities, and will have a fire rate of 1.5 per second, with a 1.8/1.9 second reload time depending on rarity.

The Epic version will deal 63 damage per second, while its Legendary counterpart will deal 66. In-game footage for the Revolver was also leaked by KrispyLeaks.

There’s currently no word on when these guns will be debuting in Fortnite, with some assuming they’ll arrive during the 14 Days of Summer event.


But who knows? We’ll be sure to keep you updated when more information on the weapons’ release date surfaces.

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.
