Fortnite Patch 5.21 arrived earlier today and it brings a lot of new content to the battle royale game. One of the highlights from the Fortnite Update 5.21 includes the addition of a brand-new weapon, the Fortnite Heavy Sniper. The Heavy Sniper is described in the patch notes as being capable of delivering “devastating damage to enemies and even more to structures.” Read on below to find out the Fortnite Heavy Sniper Stats, plus, if you want to find exactly where to find the weapon in-game, we’ve covered the Fortnite Heavy Sniper location as well.
Fortnite Heavy Sniper: Fortnite Heavy Sniper Stats
In the Fortnite Update 5.21 Patch Notes, it is stated that the Fortnite Heavy Sniper can dish out around 150/157 damage to players, as well as increased damage against structures and buildings at 1050/1100. It should make for a great anti-building weapon, especially for those skillful enough to use the Heavy Sniper.
However, developer Epic Games has made sure that the new weapon won’t be too overpowered, as the high damage output is countered by long reload times in comparison to other Fortnite Snipers. The lack of a bullet drop, though, may require a patch in future. Additionally, the Fortnite Heavy Sniper is also available in two variants, Epic and Legendary.

Players can find the Fortnite Heavy Sniper from floor loot, chests, Supply Drops and even Vending Machines. This means that the new weapon probably won’t be too hard to find. With its high damage output and what looks like a generous drop rate, the Heavy Sniper might turn out to be a popular weapon.
