Heavy Sniper Rifle is the name of a Sniper Rifle in Fortnite Battle Royale. This one is available in Epic and Legendary variants and has a head shot multiplier of 2.5x. The weapon delivers devastating damage at the cost of having a long reload time and being very loud. It deals huge damage to buildings, can destroy anything except metal containers in a hit.
Heavy Sniper Rifle uses Heavy Bullets. This one is able to only be found from eliminating Shadow Henchmen or opening Shadow Henchmen Chests. It was vaulted in Patch 11.0 to free up space. It was supposed to be the first weapon unvaulted on December 17, 2019 for Winterfest but was postponed due to the event being delayed a day onto December 18. However, it was eventually unvaulted on December 30, 2019 for 24 hours and was the 13th weapon to be unvaulted for the event.
The thing called Heavy Sniper Rifle has been unvaulted on Path 12.0, replacing the Bolt Action Sniper Rifle. On the Patch 12.1, this one is now able to be found from Shadow henchman’s itself and the Shadow safe chests.
In Patch 12.50, the damage of Heavy Sniper Rifle was reduced from 150/157 to 126/132. The main reason why it was nerved because if the player had 100 HP and 50 shield, they will get a shotted instantly by both Epic and Legendary variants. Aside from that, it was also overpowered. However, it still one shots builds with the exception of metal containers.
