Fortnite Glider

Epic Games has updated the news section within Fortnite Battle Royale to alert players that a new sniper rifle is coming to the game this week, the Heavy Sniper.

While details are scarce, the news pop-up describes the new Heavy Sniper as one that’s “capable of dealing high damage to structures.” It’ll also come in Epic and Legendary variants. The rifle itself seems to be styled off of the familiar Barrett .50 cal.

This rifle is likely a welcome addition to Fortnite as it’ll allow players who face those who insist on building like mad during the last moments of the game, to take them out with one swift blow without drawing too much attention.

Fortnite‘s weekly patch is set to arrive tomorrow, so stay tuned for patch notes as soon as they arrive.
