New Sniper Rifle is coming to Fortnite Battle Royale Game

New Sniper Rifle Fortnite Season 7

Fortnite Season 7 has brought a lot of significant changes to the game, majorly the planes and snow-covered Fortnite map which includes two new locations. Apart from this, we have seen a few new items and weapons in Fortnite Season 7, like Infinity Blade (Vaulted ) and Boombox. The Fortnite Content Update #3 is going to be released on upcoming Tuesday and Dataminers once again started digging into the content files.

Dataminer @lucas7yoshi_ has found a new weapon while digging into the content update # 3. He has found a suppressed version of the Sniper Rifle in the Athena files.

He came across with two files namely :

‘WID_Sniper_Suppressed_Scope_Athena_SR_Ore_t03,’ and in terms of its appearance its looks like “Frostbite Sniper” from Save the world mode, which is without Suppressor

He has also found some audio files for this Suppressed Sniper, to give us a reference, how exactly the upcoming Sniper will sound in the game

The inclusion of Suppressor in the front of Sniper can make a huge impact in the player game because currently, it’s quite easy to track the location of the shooter with the amount of sound it makes.

The release of Suppressed Sniper Rifle is still a matter of speculation, as these leaks does not confirm the addition of this weapon the game for sure. We have to wait for Epic Games to confirm this officially
