- Patch 4.5 - Released
- Patch 5.40 - Vaulted
- The Drum Gun is best used in close to mid range combat as its high spread and recoil makes it unreliable at longer ranges, as well as the lack of first-shot accuracy.
- It can be considered a lower-tier version of the Machine Guns, as it is pretty common to find one.

- 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.
- 50 round capacity.
- Uses Medium Ammo.
- Can be found from floor loot, chests, and Vending Machines.
- The Drum Gun is based on the Thompson Submachine Gun (Tommy Gun) M1928, with a drum magazine, Lyman 55B rear sight, Cutt compensator and a foregrip.
- The Drum Gun 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 slower fire rate and it deals slightly higher damage to players, and the LMG having a much larger clip size and it deals more damage to structures.
- The Drum Gun is the only SMG that doesn't use Light Bullets
