Fortnite Leaks Powerful New Sniper Rifle

A recent leak in Fortnite reveals that the game may soon be getting a powerful new sniper rifle. This new weapon has the potential to fundamentally alter the metagame of the current Battle Royale season.

Despite the fact that there is no concrete evidence regarding the potential statistics and attributes of the new long-range weapon, which is rumoured to be called the Heavy Impact Sniper Rifle, according to a reliable Fortnite leaker and dataminer, it appears to be capable of inflicting significant damage.

A vehicle-focused, desert post-apocalyptic theme is featured in Battle Royale, which is currently in the middle of Chapter 5 Season 3 of the ever-popular free-to-play game.

This theme is similar to that of the Fallout and Mad Max franchises, although only the former has official Fortnite crossover content.

Fortnite has just recently revealed its Metallica collaboration content, which brings a wide variety of new content to the game across a variety of different game modes.

New items are being added to Battle Royale, including a loot island with a Metallica theme, a new mobility weapon called the Ride the Lightning guitar, and more.

ShiinaBR, a well-known dataminer and leaker for Fortnite, recently posted on Twitter what appears to be a cinematic screenshot of the Heavy Sniper Rifle from a few years ago.

This leak gives the impression that the upcoming new sniper rifle will be released in the near future.

Given that the leaker claimed Fortnite’s most recent content update patch does not include the Heavy Impact Sniper Rifle, it is still unknown whether or not the Heavy Impact Sniper Rifle will be similar to the old fan-favorite ranged gun or when it may actually enter the loot pool.

The current season is dominated by vehicles, but if it is anything like its predecessor with a similar name, it has the potential to help turn the tide of the season.

The Heavy Sniper Rifle was a ranged weapon in Fortnite that was capable of dealing massive amounts of damage to vehicles and structures.

For those who are unaware, it was an extremely powerful weapon that did not load quickly.

ShiinaBR may be referring to the same Fortnite sniper rifle that was leaked a few weeks ago, although this has not been confirmed as of yet.

One more pair of trustworthy Fortnite leakers and dataminers shared a video of a new sniper in action.

According to the video, the new sniper will supposedly deal triple damage to vehicles, which is a feature that is comparable to the Heavy Sniper Rifle that was introduced in the game.

The Tow Hook Cannon is another weapon that is geared towards vehicles, and it has already been added to the game while players wait for the potentially vehicle-destroying Heavy Impact Sniper Rifle.

Players can drift from left to right and jump while being towed thanks to this one-of-a-kind item that hooks onto the back of a vehicle.

Players can switch to their other weapons once they have attached them, which allows squads to make better use of two-seaters and makes it much simpler for enemies to attach themselves to vehicles and either steal them or destroy them.

As the offensive power of Fortnite continues to increase throughout the season, there are some players who are hoping that two items that have been locked away, namely Med-Mist and Chug Splash, will be brought back.

There were a significant number of players who expressed their disappointment on Reddit regarding the absence of the healing items; however, given the dynamic nature of the item pool in Fortnite, it is only a matter of time before these items are brought back. When the new sniper arrives, they very well may require it.
