Fortnite Heavy Sniper (Legendary/Gold)
The Fortnite Heavy Sniper (Legendary/Gold) is a weapon that even highly skilled players dread. Despite its slow rate of fire, this bolt-action sniper packs a serious wallop. A single shot can level any structure in its path, such as a tree, wall, floor, or ceiling. It works very well in medium to long range, and because of the low bullet drop, it can be used to pull off amazing snipes from extremely long distances. The damage output is breathtaking, as a headshot is more than capable of eliminating someone with full health and full shield, with a body-shot nearly doing the same.
- Color: Gold (Legendary)
- Thrill factor: Very high. As all snipers, it’s fun and exciting to use, but this particular version of this weapon is the video game version of riding a roller coaster. Every shot even no-scopes and quick-scopes is a rush of adrenaline.
- Popularity: Extremely high. It’s extraordinarily rare that someone leaves one of these rifles behind, even if it’s so their enemies won’t get it.
- Odds of finding the weapon: This weapon is only relatable to the Golden Scar or Golden Rocket Launcher. It is never left behind and the odds are tiny of finding one in floor loot or in post-fight loot, making chests the most likely place to obtain one.
- Interesting Note: In the end game, this weapon’s loud firing sound can be a beacon to anyone nearby. Shoot with care, because you may be drawing unwanted attention to yourself.
The Fortnite Heavy Sniper (Legendary/Gold) is a rifle that strikes fear into the best of them. It is reliable, lethal, and powerful. It could easily be the best sniper rifle in the game at this time, despite its slow reload time. It is most recommended for anyone, regardless of play style.
