Fortnite season 10 is here, and a new season always means something is about to get vaulted. For those who don’t know, Epic Games has a habit of vaulting some feature and items whenever they release a new season. The same has happened with the arrival of season 10 as some weapons are now vaulted. However, this always makes room for new weapons to arrive, and it seems like something amazing is coming.
Automatic Sniper Rifle Might Arrive Soon
One of the weapons that got vaulted is Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle, and its replacement is already in the works. Recently, some data miners were able to discover a new weapon in the game’s files, which is in fact the Automatic Sniper Rifle. Not only this but we also got to know how the weapon will work and what will it feature.
To start with, the Automatic Sniper Rifle will be available in all four rarity variants, that are Uncommon, Rare, Epic, and Legendary. Epic Games will usually release it either in low-variants or high-variants. Although it can also release it in all four variants, it will be something unusual.
How Much Damage Will It Do?
As for the damage, it will depend upon the rarity level. It will be 30, 31, 33, and 35 damage per shot depending on the rarity. In addition to this, it will feature a clip size of 16 bullets, and it reload time will also depend upon its rarity. The uncommon variant will have four seconds reload time whereas the Legendary variant will have 3.42 seconds reload time. The other two variants will be somewhere between this.
At the moment, we currently don’t know the weapon will work, but we can get an idea from its name. For instance, the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle fired a bullet whenever a player would click to shoot without the need of reloading it after every shot. If we take things into consideration, then it is safe that you will be able to fire bullets from the Automatic Sniper Rifle continuously if you hold down the trigger button.
Can It Become the Favorite Sniper?
In any case, the Automatic Sniper Rifle might not become the favorite sniper rifle in the game. The Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle was not used a lot because players always prefer the Heavy Sniper Rifle. The reason behind this is that most players prefer landing a single heavy shot on their opponent instead of hitting multiple low damaging shots. So, the chances for the Heavy Sniper Rifle to remain as a priority will be high.
Fortnite season 10 has also added some new content to the game. It has added a new vehicle, which is a two-player mechanical robot. One player gets to control its weapon, while the other one gets to move it around. In addition to this, an old location the Dusty Depot has also once again appeared in the game.
