The Bolt-Action Sniper Rifle is a weapon in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It deals 105-116 damage, which is enough to eliminate an unshielded person in one shot. A headshot damage can range from 210-232, which is enough to eliminate a fully shielded player. However, it is limited by its 1 ammo capacity, meaning that the player has to reload after each shot. This weapon needs Heavy Ammo to use.
With this rifle, it is best to wait until you have a clear shot of the enemy before firing. Guessing and missing a shot will delay your time to fire again, and will probably alert your opponent to your position. Also try to wait until the player you‘re targeting stops or pauses so you can get a good shot on them.
