Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2 has seen the return of the community’s favorite Heavy Sniper and if you are wondering where you can find the Heavy Sniper in Fortnite, then you aren’t alone. The recent couple of seasons has been quite a trip down the memory lane, with Epic Games bringing OG Chapter 1 items, locations and more back into the mix.
Chapter 3 Season 1 saw the return of the Tilted Towers POI and with Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, the developers have added the Heavy Sniper back into the game. Here’s all you need to know as well as where you can find the latest weapon in the game.
Where to Find Heavy Sniper in Fortnite
Heavy Snipers made their way into the regular matches in Fortnite with the 20.10 update and are available in the latest Zero Build playlist as well. You can find Heavy Snipers in Fortnite in chests, rare chests and supply drops.
These will be available in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities and have seen some major nerfs in terms of damage.
Heavy Sniper Nerfs
Currently, the Heavy Sniper does a body damage of 120/128/132 (depending on the rarity), while headshots are no longer an instant kill thing.
Instead, headshots deal 180/192/198 damage based on the rarity. Furthermore, the developers have also nerfed the build damage to 600/630/660. Heavy Snipers in Fortnite deal 640 damage to vehicles.
Back in the Chapter 1 days, the Heavy Sniper was the most OP weapon and capable of inflicting almost nearly 400 damage via headshots.
However, Epic Games has significantly nerfed the weapon in Fortnite Chapter 3 Season 2, so as to balance the overall game.
