Epic Games has released their new 5.40 Fortnite Update in which they have decided to remove the Drum Gun, which is surely going to hurt some players. However, the replacement is considered to be vital since the developers have added the new Suppressed Assault Rifle.
The new suppressed weapon shares the same weapon model as the already available SCAR. As Epic Games noted, the most beneficial type of gameplay when using this weapon will be precision tapping over a rapid fire.
Furthermore, this update also gets an improved LTM, The Getaway. Below you can find the full Fortnite Battle Royale patch notes.
