Epic Games has released the patch notes for Fortnite's 5.40 content update, confirming everything that is being tweaked, changed, and added to the game's Battle Royale and Save the World modes on PS4, Xbox One, PC, Nintendo Switch, and mobile. Also, without any warning at all Epic seem to have vaulted the Drum Gun - a fan favourite weapon. The Suppressed Assault Rifle comes in both epic (Purple) and Legendary (Orange) rarities.

While recent nerfs brought the Drum Gun's accuracy and falloff damage down a bit, the weapon continued to spark debate among the community. This will be the first patch in September, and possibly the last big patch in season five, so gamers can expect it to be huge.

Head to the Fortnite website on your mobile device or, if you're on a computer, select the "Android Beta" option in the top left corner of the website. Considering how useful the Drum Gun was for cutting down structures quickly, and peppering players at close-range, we wouldn't be surprised if we weren't the only ones mourning the fact it's been vaulted right now.

You can find the full set of patch notes for the v5.40 content update of Fortnite below that also include the addition of the recently announced suppressed assault rifle weapon to the battle royale game below.
