Fortnite players are convinced they’ve spotted popular Save the World shotgun the “Black Drum” in the latest Season 6 teasers, as well as what appears to be a modernized version of the single-player game’s “Brood Slicer” pickaxe.
Dexerto says”Fortnite Season 6 is around the corner, and fans can’t wait to see what Epic Games has planned. As usual, they’ve teased bits and pieces to kick-start the hype, and it’s worked like a charm.Their latest teaser featured Jones rambling about losing control of the Zero Point and reality coming to an end. However, it also showcased snippets of cropped abstract images, andone of them has gotten fans talking.”
The image, which appears twice at the bottom of the teaser, shows a glimpse of what appears to be a unique-gun. People have been digging around trying to figure out what it is, and it seems like they’ve found an answer.
Fortnite data miner Twea confirmed it’s a gun that already exists in Fortnite: Save The World. But, it’s apparently being introduced to the battle royale in Fortnite Season 6.
Twea put the two images together to help the fans get a better look at the gun. It appears to be a shotgun with a spikey metallic aesthetic. The post also included a picture of ‘Brood Slicer’ with a modernized look.
“If it is the “Black Drum” shotgun, players should expect a new close-quarters gun that packs a mean punch. Here’s all its stats from Save the World”:
- Ammo: “Shells ‘n’ Slugs”
- Reload Time (Seconds): 2.8
- Magazine Size: 10
- Damage to Player: 15.7
- Info: “Drum Shotgun that fires Shells in 2 round bursts.”
Season 6 starts on March 16, which isn’t too far away.

Dexerto says “While most of Fortnite Chapter 2 Season 7’s weekly challenges have so far revolved around alien invaders, Week 7’s Legendary quests are a little more obscure, with players needing to find Records and collect Parenting Books from various locations. Another strange quest asks players to construct a Wooden Hatchery, which is used to hold eggs. Whether this is meant for the chickens that run wild around the Island or the recent Alien Parasite invaders, we’ll have to wait and see. We doubt players are going to spend too much time debating the purpose of this quest, though, so let’s get straight to the
