Leaks from data miners AllyJax and RyanDoesLeaks show the new Sniper Rifle takes a heavy-duty appearance with the following information (stats are subject to change):

  • Damage: 138
  • Headshot Multiplier: 2.5x (345 damage)
  • Structure Damage: 193
  • Firing Rate: 0.64
  • Reload Time: 2.7s
  • Ammo: 1

While these numbers aren’t finalized, the Sniper Rifle may deal around 138 damage to players per shot at a legendary rarity. Its projectile Speed/ Gravity is the same as that of the Reaper Sniper.

The Sniper Rifle fires one high-damaging bullet before requiring a lengthy 2.7-second reload. Footage shows it can equip attachments, enhancing its capabilities.

Its biggest strength, however, is an enormous 3x damage multiplier against vehicles. If it deals 330+ damage to cars/trucks, it could eliminate weaker ones in just 5 shots in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3.

Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 made vehicles incredibly powerful with upgrades like:

  • More Health
  • Rechargeable boosts
  • Vehicle Mods like grenade launchers and bulletproof tires

These buffs made driving essential for winning matches. Right now, there aren’t many good counter options besides the limited Nitro Fists.

If released as leaks, this devastating sniper rifle could help balance the vehicle-centric gameplay in Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3. Its single high-damage shot and long reload make it high-risk, high-reward against opponents using armored vehicles.

Other leaked Fortnite Chapter 5 Season 3 content includes a rumored Lethal Company crossover with related cosmetics.

However, Epic may avoid releasing an overpowered direct vehicle counter too soon, so keep an eye out for more Sniper Rifle details in future Fortnite updates.
