Strategy Guide

Calculated - Emote - Fortnite.png
The risk was calculated... but man am I bad at math.
This section outlines a strategy. Feel free to add tips, tricks and general advice about the topic.


  • Players should aim above targets at long ranges to compensate for bullet drop. The further the target the higher the player should aim.
  • Like with all snipers, players should aim in the direction a target is moving at long ranges to compensate for the bullet travel time. The faster the target is moving and the further they are away the further the player should aim ahead of the target.
  • It functions much like the Semi Auto Sniper Rifle and due to it’s faster-than-average bullet rate and low bullet drop in some cases it could substitute for your Assault Rifle though substituting it is not recommended.

Trivia

  • The Rifle is likely based off the Henry Rifle which served as the basis of the Winchester 1866.
  • The Lever Action Rifle has a faster rate of fire when not aiming down sights, and its spread in all rarities is similar to the Hunting Rifle in Epic and Legendary rarities.
    • This means that it is more effective in close range when not aiming down sights.
  • The Lever Action Rifle shares the same firing sound as the OG Hunting Rifle from a nearby player.
