Season 8 of "Fortnite Battle Royale" is just three days away, and the game creator has announced some big changes that will be released with the season. One thing that many players want to see in the game is the Double Shotgun technique, and Epic Games developers recently talked about it. This technique was in the game before, but it was removed since the developers believed it was overpowered.

The Double Shotgun return?

During the Reddit AMA session on February 22, three Epic Games developers answered questions asked by players.

Thanks to these questions, we have found out some information regarding Season 8 and some future plans by the "Fortnite Battle Royale" developer.

One of the questions that was asked was about the Double Shotgun technique, as one player wanted to know if it will return to the game at some point. "We do not have any plans to bring back the double shotgun. The main issue is that the high damage of the weapon is balanced by its slow rate of fire, and bypassing that weakness makes it too powerful," is what Eric Williamson, Design Lead, answered to this question.

Epic Games tried to make "Fortnite" players happy by releasing the Double Barrel Shotgun, but this weapon was recently vaulted. Even though a lot of players would like to see the return of the double shotgun, there is no doubt that the game is much better without it. While this technique did have some disadvantages, the fact is that players who were using it were lethal at the close range. Considering that players have many more mobility items at their disposal right now, bringing the double shotgun back would ruin the balance.

Will Drum Gun come back?

Another weapon many "Fortnite Battle Royale" players would like to see return to the game is the Drum Gun. This weapon was vaulted a few months ago and the community was shocked that this happened. However, Epic Games hasn't revealed anything about the potential return of this weapon, but it won't be surprising if we see it on Season 8!
