After almost 1.5 years, the unvaulted Submachine Gun is back as an available weapon for players to use in their games, but do you know how to find the unvaulted Submachine Gun in Fortnite?

How to find the unvaulted Submachine Gun: Fortnite guide

The unvaulted Submachine Gun can be found in major POIs, including Shattered Slabs, Brutal Bastion, Citadel, Mega City Frenzy Fields, and other places. You can get it from the ground, as it is still categorized as ground loot. You can obtain the gun in chests and holo-chests in your games. Fortunately, Fortnite kept the weapon as it was and included it in the weapon rotation.

The unvaulted Submachine Gun is a must-have weapon in your backpack for close and mid-range duels. It is very useful in these types of battles, and you can place it somewhere between a shotgun and an assault rifle.

It wasn't available for players since late 2021, as Epic took it down during Chapter 3, Season 1. However, it is now back on the weapon list, and players can equip it to get the upper hand in close and mid-range duels.
