It looks like a suppressed sniper rifle is on its way into Fortnite’s Battle Royale.
The suppressed sniper is referred to as Athena in the files, but exists as Frostbite in Save the World, and isn’t known for being particularly powerful.
Stats for the weapon have also been leaked, but as with any of these details, they may be subject to change.
The Epic variant will have 100 damage and a reload time of 2.85 seconds. The Legendary variant will mete out 105 damage and have a 2.7 second reload time. The rifle may possibly have a headshot multiplier of 2.5, but Lucas7yoshi notes that they “can’t say for certain”.
Heres a MUCH better render of the suppressed sniper!

It’s likely that the gun will be available after next week’s patch, but we’ll have to wait and see.
