During the Fortnite Unvaulting event, the players' community expressed support for the return of the popular Drum Gun . There was a very specific reason, however, if this weapon had been placed in the warehouse: it is too powerful.
It is not surprising, therefore, that after his reappearance on the battlefields he started to create serious headaches at balancing. After a careful analysis, Epic Games has decided to intervene: with the update 9.01 of Fortnite published today it has weakened the Drum Gun reducing the damages of the uncommon and rare variants from 26 / 27 to 22/23 . The developers commented this way: "Since its return from the warehouse, the Drum Gun has been more effective than we wanted. This change should reduce its effectiveness in combat without sacrificing its spirit. "
Empowerment also due to the much-discussed Girosfera which saw its maximum health reduced from 200 to 150. The purpose of this vehicle, in fact, is to make travel enjoyable and exciting, not that of providing excessive protection. His strong defensive skills have therefore been reduced without sacrificing his spirit. Finally, the compact machine was placed in the warehouse . The reason is very simple: after the return of the Drum Gun and the addition of the new tactical Assault Rifle there were far too many weapons at high cadence in the Royal Battle.
