Fortnite gets new weapons added on a regular basis and the latest leaks point towards the Drum Shotgun as the next addition. New video footage of the weapon has now surfaced.
Epic Games is never afraid to experiment with new weapons in Fortnite. The most recent addition was the Proximity Grenade Launcher, which received an overall negative reaction due to balance issues.
The next move for the game dev giant seems to be a possible fix for the Shotgun meta. Tactical Shotguns are far outperformed by the Combat Shotguns, so the Drum Shotgun could serve as a smart replacement.
New Drum Shotgun Footage Leaked
Earlier in the week, we had a first look at the ‘Drum Shotgun. The initial reactions were naturally skeptical, but further inspections and details might change minds.
The Combat Shotgun might be one the most controversial mix-ups of the meta, but balancing has gotten its power into check. However, the Tactical Shotgun still drags far behind even with the small damage buffs.
Now, we’ve got some in-game footage of the new Drum Shotgun courtesy of @KrispyLeaks.

As stated by Kripsy, the sounds and animations of the shotgun are not accurate. The shotgun was imported into the game by swapping meshes. This means that the shotgun retains the stats, sounds, and behaviors of the original shotgun.
While this means that you can’t draw too many conclusions from this, you can get the general idea for how the weapon will look in your hands. We’ll report on stats and official features once that information is leaked or released.
The general idea of the Drum Shotgun seems to replace the Tacitical Shotgun. The shooting speed in the leak is not accurate to its real performance, but a semi-auto drum mag shotgun would inherently overpower the Tac.
At initial impression, the weapon looks good in the player’s hands and we’re excited to see if Epic can bring a balanced end product. The Tactical Shotgun may be a long time heirloom of Fortnite, but its time in the light has probably passed.
What do you think of the upcoming Drum Shotgun based on this information and video footage? One thing is for sure, we’ll miss the classic Tactical Shotgun when it’s gone.
When Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends, Season 2 start date
Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends and Season 2 starts. The season is off to a wild start, and it’s only going to get crazier.
Fortnite Chapter 3 just started, and it’s going to be a long one. Here is when Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 ends and Season 2 starts.
Fortnite Chapter 2 ended with The Island flipping over revealing an entirely new map. This marked the start of Fortnite Chapter 3 which also took players back to Season 1.
With a new Chapter, there is plenty for players to discover. On top of a new map there are new weapons, mechanics, and more. This also means that Chapter 3 Season 1 is going to be a long one.
Whether you love or hate the new season, you might be wondering when the next one will start.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 End?
Fortnite Season 1 will end on March 22, 2022. This means the first season of the new chapter will last for more than 100 days.
There is a chance that Chapter 3 Season 1 could end on March 19 as an in-game timer indicates this as the season’s end date. Regardless, this season is going to be a long one.
When Does Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 Start?
New Fortnite seasons usually start within 24 hours after the previous one ends. Players can expect Chapter 3 Season 2 to start on March 23.
That being said, there’s always a chance that Season 2 gets delayed. A series of delays happened at the start of Chapter 2 which caused Season 1 to stretch far beyond its original end date.
Is There a Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1 Live Event?
As of now, we don’t know. We likely won’t have this information until the final weeks of Season 1.
However, we will keep this article updated as more information is provided.
What Season is Fortnite on?
Fortnite is currently in Chapter 3 Season 1. This is the first season of the third chapter which started after Chapter 2 Season 8. While most players refer to this season as “Season 1”, it’s technically Season 19.
There were 10 seasons in Chapter 1 and 8 seasons in Chapter 2.
For now, that’s everything we know about Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 1. This chapter will likely span the next year or so and will be filled with exciting events.
