Oh boy, the Fortnite heavy sniper look like it will be amazing.
There have been so many changes coming to Fortnite in recent weeks that it is hard to keep up with it all. While there have been two almost game breaking SMG’s, it looks like we’re going to get another super strong weapon.
The Heavy Sniper Rifle will be able to go right through buildings; once again the niche of Fortnite – building – becomes less useful. According to the stat-tracking website, Storm Shield One, the Heavy Sniper Rifle will be included at some point this season; most likely in two patches time.
Heavy Sniper stats
It is going to be a pretty dangerous weapon, that will do 157 damage at any range; regardless of if it goes through a building or not.
Thankfully, the rest of its stats aren’t too crazy. It takes 4 seconds to reload, it’s only a one bullet magazine, and has a fire rate of just 0.33. This will become the first ever non-explosive weapon to pierce through buildings, and it will be any base-builders worse nightmare.

While there has been no confirmation from Epic Games, it is likely that it will be added to the game; there hasn’t been a new sniper rifle since the hunting rifle.
It looks like it will be another way for Epic to deal with people sitting in buildings – something which they seem pretty against.
