The brand new Heavy Sniper in Fortnite has faced criticism within minutes of being live after it turned out you can’t wall bang with it.
Epic Games launched update V5.21 on August 15, and the main attraction was the Heavy Sniper that’s capable of taking down opponents with one shot, as well as dealing structure breaking damage to builds.
However, despite the sheer power, it appears that the Heavy Sniper won’t damage opponents beyond a wall, as FaZe Clan member TFUE found.
Launching into the Sniper Shootout LTM to try out the new gun, he quickly found a no skin opponent standing behind a wooden wall.
The pro player is considered one of the best in the world, and he expressed his disbelief that it didn’t kill his opponent, and even went as far to say it was broken.
You can view the full information on the new sniper rifle below, taken from the V5.21 update patch notes.
