— In-Game Description

Jules' Drum Gun is an Assault Weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Chapter 2: Season 3. It is a Mythic version of the Drum Gun, obtained by eliminating Jules at The Authority.


Like its original counterpart, Jules' Drum Gun is a fully automatic, fast firing, closer ranged weapon. It is best used like an SMG, dealing high amounts of damage in a close quarters environment, but being much weaker at extended ranges due to poor accuracy. As it stands, Jules' Drum Gun plays closer to a Submachine Gun than an Assault Weapon, similar to the Light Machine Gun.


Jules' Drum Gun deals 24 Damage per shot (204 Damage per second). Jules' Drum Gun uses Medium Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Medium Bullets. Jules' Drum Gun has a headshot multiplier of 1.5x.

  • Jules' Drum Gun is essentially an SMG in all but name, so it should be used accordingly. This means close range hipfire against opponents for the best DPS.
  • Jules' Drum Gun has a large magazine size so it can be useful for attacking builds for longer periods of time.
