Every new Fortnite season sees the unvaulting and vaulting of several weapons, and Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3, entitled "Vibin," is no different. According to prominent data miner iFireMonkey, a new Mythic Heavy Sniper Rifle is on its way to the Fortnite Island.
The leak unveiled the Heavy Sniper Rifle's insane firepower and headshot damage, meaning that Fortnite players will undoubtedly be rushing to get their hands on it this season. Here's everything you need to know about the Heavy Sniper Rifle in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3.
Fortnite Heavy Sniper Rifle - Weapon Stats
Fortnite leaker iFireMonkey shared details about the upcoming Mythic Heavy Sniper Rifle over Twitter on 5th June 2022.

"Powerful and accurate rifle with a bolt-action mechanism, with an extremely slow reload," the description read.

According to the weapon's stats, the Heavy Sniper Rifle will be capable of dealing a total of 138 damage, in addition to a whopping 207 headshot damage. The only apparent drawback is that the weapon will be able to carry only one bullet at any given time and take 3.4 seconds to reload, which is remarkably slow.
Overall, the Heavy Sniper Rifle seems like a fantastic addition to the current weapon pool and is capable of doing substantial damage to enemies. Moreover, given the gun's insane headshot damage, it can prove to be a deadly weapon in the hands of the right player.
We should add that numerous other weapons are slated to arrive in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 3; however, only two have been added to the game thus far. Epic Games will release more as the season continues in subsequent patches.
