Ninja left speechless after ‘broken’ Drum Gun glitch makes weapon useless

Popular Twitch streamer, Tyler ‘Fortnite Battle Royale.

To give back to long time fans of Fortnite Battle Royale, Epic Games announced that they would be unvaulting one old weapon of players’ choosing and returning it to active play.


The fans had the power to vote in-game for which weapon they wanted to see return from ‘The Vault’ and the Drum Gun came out as the clear favorite.

Epic GamesThe Drum Gun was brought back to Fortnite Battle Royale during the Unvaulting Event.

After its return to active play, it appears that it still has some of the issues that got it vaulted in the first place, with many, including Ninja himself, deeming it as overpowered when it returned and many others noticed a bug with the gun, causing it to fail to fire completely.


Ninja experienced this bug first hand on stream while playing Duo’s with fellow streamer DrLupo and was left stunned at what happened to him.

During the battle with an enemy player, Ninja switched to his Drum Gun and attempted to start firing at the other player, however, the bug prevented him from doing so and he was forced to try to build for safety, to no avail.

Ninja initially thought that he might have forgotten to reload the Drum Gun and figured that was the reason for his death, although during the clip it clearly indicates he had 50 bullets reloaded already.


Many players are calling for Epic Games to either vault the Drum Gun once again or update the weapon so it is properly balanced and free from bugs and glitches.

Epic did nerf the weapon significantly in the v9.10 update, but it clearly hasn’t solved all the issues.

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

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.
