Drum Gun Wins Convincingly at Fortnite Unvaulting Event!

The payoff to weeks of intense speculation on what's going to happen at Loot Lake has commenced! The event transported you into a different area and there were six available items that had been vaulted in the past: Bouncer, Drum Gun, Plane, Tactical SMG, Grappler, and Infinity Blade. Players were tasked to hack away at the one they wanted to see brought back from the vault! The players have spoken, and they have brought back the Drum Gun from the vault!

You all chose as one and made your pick. The Drum Gun has been unvaulted.

If you are a competitive player, however, you don't have to worry about the Drum Gun (at least temporarily) because it will not appear in the Fortnite World Cup Online Open Tournament:

This vote shows the vast difference between the mindset of a casual player and a competitive player. Most competitive players were either focused on the Tactical SMG or Bouncers and hated the idea of the Drum Gun returning. The casual base, which makes up the majority of players, seems to have loved the Drum Gun and made their voices heard by voting it back into the game.

Once the weapon was released from its enclosure, players were then sent back onto the map where they witnessed the volcano erupt! The eruption caused some casualties, and these were focused on Retail Row and Tilted Towers which have been largely wiped off the map.

  1. Polar peak got hit by one of the volcanic rocks, suggesting it would be destroyed, so where would the infinity blade have spawned if that won?

  2. Incorrect title. The drum gun did NOT win Unanimously – nor no where even close. To have a Unanimous win – there would have to be ZERO votes for the other contestants, there were hundreds of thousands of votes for the other items, they just didn’t come close to the Millions of votes for the Drum Gun – But regardless that still makes your headline title incorrect.

    1. You’re right, thanks.

  3. How did planes not win?

    1. Because the planes sucked man, kamikaze pilots and noobs planecamping until the very end? Not cool.
