— In-Game Description

The Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle is a Sniper Rifle in Fortnite: Battle Royale. It was added in Pre- Season with the launch of Battle Royale.

Functionality

The Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle is a slow firing, fully-automatic, weapon equipped with a medium sized Scope. Firing the weapon from the hip is very inaccurate, by also having no indication on which direction the bullet will go. Unlike other Sniper Rifles it has multiple bullets in its magazine, allowing for repeated fire.

Stats

The Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle ranges from dealing 75 to 78 Damage per shot (90-93.6 damage per second) and uses Heavy Ammo - Icon - Fortnite.png Heavy Bullets. The Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle has a headshot multiplier of 2.5x.

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.


  • The Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle can be fired several times before reloading, and so the player can afford to be less accurate when firing in order to add constant pressure to an enemy, when playing in team based Gamemodes.
    • However, because the weapon uses 10 bullets per mag, and you can only carry a maximum of 50 heavy bullets, try to minimise your ammo consumption.
  • As the scope does not zoom in as far as other sniper rifles do, the Semi-Automatic Sniper Rifle is better to use at mid range, as it can hit decent damage multiple times before reloading.
    • Although you can still use it al long ranges because of its faster bullet velocity and more linear projectile than most bolt-action rifles.
  • Try to hit headshots, as it has an 2.5x damage multiplier. Headshots deals the same damage as the Heavy Sniper Rifle, Hunting Rifle and Hunter Bolt-Action Sniper, which, in comparison, they deal more body damage than the Semi-Auto.
