Ninja Talks About The New Heavy Sniper Rifle In Fortnite

Recently Ninja released a YouTube video based on one of Fortnite’s newest weapons, the heavy sniper rifle.  At around 11:57 in the video Ninja finds a heavy sniper rifle on the ground from a dude he killed. Of course, Ninja takes that sniper rifle and completely destroys everyone with it!

*NEW* Heavy Sniper Rifle! – Fortnite Battle Royale Gameplay – Ninja

The Heavy Sniper Rifle released in the game Fortnite on August 14th had a good bit of hype going for it! On August 12th, before the sniper was even released Fortnite Battle Royale News tweeted out “Here’s our first in-game look at the upcoming Heavy Sniper Rifle weapon”.

Many more tweets, thoughts, and pictures were posted in the days leading to the ultimate release. All of this talk eventually lead to the actual release on August 14th, 2018. The heavy sniper rifle features a shot that can take 157 damage from another player, just by hitting them in the body. Topping that off with a whopping 392 damage headshot.

That’s not even all this new release has to offer. The gun can also destroy most walls in one shot, making it easy to knock a player with some fall damage. Stats wise, this gun can hit a building with up to 1,100 damage depending on which version of the gun you have.

Although ninja personally found his heavy sniper from another player he took out, you are able to find it in chests, supply drops, and in unlikely circumstances, the floor of a building.

Going back to all the hype leading up to the release of this gun, not everyone was super happy. A lot of people were saying the gun would be able to shoot through structures, making players very disappointed when it couldn’t.  @_xnoah on twitter said “everyone said the heavy sniper was gonna be able to shoot people through walls and I’m very disappointed you can’t”


However, someone replied to this tweet saying it would entirely defeat the purpose of the game, which I pretty much agree with. If that happened then there would be absolutely no way to defend yourself from people with the sniper, leaving you dead. Maybe fortnite can release bulletproof pans or something to counteract a gun like that #Pubg.

Speaking of new items, a blog post by Pro Game Guides talked about how maybe Fortnite will release a pill that gives you 200 hp for a certain amount of time. Personally, I think that would be awesome!
