Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The Drum Gun is best used in close to mid range combat as its high spread and recoil makes it unreliable beyond that, as well as the lack of first-shot accuracy.
  • It can be considered the lower-tier version of the machine guns, as it is pretty common to find one.

Changes[edit | edit source]

4.5 Content Update (July 3, 2018)
Drum Gun added
  • The Drum Gun is a hybrid weapon that combines the stopping power of a rifle with the suppressive ability and fire rate of an SMG.
  • Available in Uncommon and Rare variants.
    • 26/27 base damage.
  • 50 round capacity.
  • Uses Medium Ammo.
  • Can be found from floor loot, chests, and Vending Machines.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Drum Gun is based on the Thompson submachine gun, with a drum magazine and foregrip.
  • It is similar to the LMG, with both using medium bullets, having a large clip size, a rapid fire rate, and a long reload time. The differences being that the Drum gun has a faster fire rate and slightly higher damage, and the LMG having a much larger clip size and more damage per bullet and DPS on structures.
