The third and final V7.10 Content Update officially released on Fortnite Battle Royale on Tuesday, January 8, and brought with it a brand new weapon. Titled the Suppressed Sniper Rifle, this is a long-range weapon that packs a massive punch with a minimal audio cue to help you catch your opponents unawares.

The weapon is related for the Frostbite sniper identified in Fortnite's other game mode, Save The World, and is bolt action, which means players will have to load an additional bullet into the chamber each time they fire a shot.
Because of the silencer, the rifle makes a much quieter sound than the normal Bolt Action Sniper. Nevertheless, this noise reduction comes at a value, because the suppressed version makes five fewer damage points per shot than its counterpart.
Right here would be the information of the rifle's core stats, the locations you can discover it in-game, as well as the rarities that it is out there in. For more Fortnite in-game weapons, check out U4GM fortnite save the world weapons for sale list.
