Being behind cover may no longer be sufficient protection for Fortnite players if a new leak is accurate. Various Fortnite leakers are reporting a datamine showing a new weapon called the Heavy Sniper Rifle that can shoot through walls is on its way.
“Powerful and accurate rifle with a bolt-action mechanism with an extremely slow reload,” reads the weapon’s description on Storm Shield One. “Shots pierce through the first wall it hits.”
Twitter’s Fortnite: Battle Royale Leaks tweeted the rifle’s sound effects and a look at the rifle’s coding revealing it to be a Barrett .50 caliber rifle. Meanwhile, DieBuddies tweeted out the official item image.
