Epic Games has, once again, done a fantastic job with another live in-game event. "Fortnite Battle Royale" players had a chance to participate in the Unvaulting event on May 4, choosing one of the vaulted items to bring back to the game and witnessing the destruction of two major places on the island. Unfortunately, a lot of players have experienced glitched lobbies and they haven't been able to witness the event live in the game.

The Unvaulting event is arguably the biggest event to ever happen in the popular battle royale video game. It has brought some massive changes to the game, and it also allowed players to have some control over the game. It will be interesting to see how players will adjust to all the changes that have happened with the event, especially considering that Season 9 is just around the corner!

Drum Gun is back

The Drum Gun was originally introduced to "Fortnite Battle Royale" with the v4.50 content update during Season 4.

This gun is a hybrid between an assault rifle and a submachine gun, and it was one of the most popular weapons in the game. The weapon was a must-have in this season, as well as in Season 5. It was an essential part of the spray meta, which many players considered overpowered. With the v5.40 content update, the "Fortnite" developer vaulted this gun.

The weapon has appeared in the Unvaulted, limited-time game mode, but it has now returned to the regular playlists.

Fortnite

Players were able to vote for this item during the Unvaulting event, which is exactly what happened. The majority of "Fortnite Battle Royale" players picked the Drum Gun to return from the vault, and Epic Games has brought it back right after the event ended. The other choices were the X-4 Stormwing, the Grappler, the Tactical Submachine Gun, the Bounce Pad, and the Infinity Blade.

It will be interesting to see how players adjust to the unvaulted weapon. It is still very strong and a lot of players are expected to use it. Season 9 could bring some adjustments to this weapon, however.

Two areas are gone

Shortly after players picked the weapon to unvault, the volcano erupted, destroying two major areas in the game. Tilted Towers and Retail Row have now been destroyed, but they will most likely be rebuilt within the next few weeks. This is similar to the meteor destruction which introduced "Fortnite Battle Royale" players to Season 4. A lot of areas have been partially destroyed by this event, but they were eventually rebuilt.

Considering that Tilted Towers had been the most popular landing spot for almost a year and a half, the destruction of it will force players to adjust. We can expect more balanced landing zones in the final days of Season 8.
