Fortnite Battle Royale just introduced the New Automatic Sniper Rifle. Here’s everything you need to know about the new weapon including damage points.
The Automatic Sniper Rifle
Fortnite Battle Royale Season 10 began just a few days ago. Players were expecting many changes with this season. However, Epic Games decided to take a different approach. For example, they decided to change the map slowly. The Rift opened up and Neo Tilted became Tilted Town. It is an interesting addition to the game and the reason is you cannot harvest materials or build structures in the Tilted Town. Of course, this also brought the question of will these changes be temporary or permanent. If these changes are permanent we will be looking at a very different map soon.
Also with the Fortnite patch v10.00, there is a new weapon in the game. The new weapon is called the Automatic Sniper Rifle. It does look like the Russian Dragunov Rifle. Let us check out the stats. Automatic Sniper Rifle.
Sniper Rifle Details
The Automatic Sniper Rifle will be available in Rare, Epic, and Legendary variants. It does use Medium Ammo. The Automatic Sniper Rifle bullets travel faster than other Sniper Rifles. The damage is (according to the variant):
- headshot damage is 62/66/70
The Rifle can shoot 4 rounds per second. It has 16 rounds per magazine. The weapon uses a reduced zoom scope. Players can find it from Floor, Chest, Vending Machines, Supply Drops, and Loot Carriers.
The feeling of the weapon is a lot like the Scoped Assault Rifle. When you look at the damage values they seem similar however the Automatic Sniper Rifle does have a faster Fire rate as well as higher damage. Therefore we can understand why it was introduced. The game does favor shotguns a lot at the moment. However, this can be a nice addition to the game. It is not a bad weapon to use at all. Also, even though the fire rate is same as the Infantry Rifle the scope will play a big role in hitting those headshots and eliminating your opponent.
