Now that the rifle is back in the game, people want to know where to find the Heavy Sniper in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2. It’s a beloved weapon, because it packs a huge punch from a long distance, allowing you to clear enemies out while remaining safe. So, for those of you that prefer to be a terror from afar rather than get into close-proximity shootouts, let’s show you how to get the Heavy Sniper Rifle in Chapter 3 Season 2.
Where to Find Heavy Sniper in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2
To find the Heavy Sniper in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, you need to loot chests, rare chests and supply drops. And bodies of enemies once you shoot them down, of course. If you’re very lucky, it might crop up in a vending machine or even as ground loot, but I wouldn’t put too much hope into that. So, there’s no exact place that we can point you towards which will guarantee you’ll get a Heavy Sniper; you’ll just have to look for them like any other weapon. Still, if you like picking people off from a distance, it’s worth the effort.
So, is the Heavy Sniper back in Fortnite? Yes, it absolutely is, and according to the patch notes, it comes in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. Apparently, the damage it does to vehicles has been buffed, but damage to enemies have been nerfed, but we haven’t been able to confirm that. It’s not the most common of drops, you see. As for where to find and how to get the Heavy Sniper in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, loot supply drops, chests and rare chests until you get lucky. And that’s about all there is to it.
Now, there are some weapons in the newest season of Fortnite that do only come from specific NPCs. We cover those in our Where to Find Exotic Weapons in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 guide. However, the Heavy Sniper is sadly not one of them.
