The Heavy Sniper Rifle is a Sniper Rifle in Battle Royale. It is available in Epic and Legendary variants and has a head shot multiplier of 2.5x. It delivers devastating damage at the cost of having a long reload time and being very loud. It deals massive damage to buildings, able to destroy anything except metal containers in one hit. It uses Heavy Bullets. It can only be found from eliminating SHADOW Henchmen or opening SHADOW Henchmen Chests.
The Heavy Sniper Rifle was vaulted in Patch 11.0 to free up space, also probably because it was overpowered.
The Heavy Sniper Rifle was supposed to be the first weapon unvaulted on December 17, 2019 for Winterfest but was postponed due to the event being delayed a day onto December 18. However, the Heavy Sniper was eventually unvaulted on December 30, 2019 for 24 hours and was the 13th weapon to be unvaulted for the event.
In Patch 12.50, the Heavy Sniper Rifle's damage was reduced from 150/157 to 126/132. The reason why it was nerfed because if the player had 100 HP and 50 shield, they'll get one shotted instantly by both the Epic and Legendary variants. It was also very overpowered. However it still one shots builds except metal containers.
