The Heavy Sniper has returned in Fortnite Season 2, and its extra damage to vehicles makes it a must-have in Zero Build modes.
Snipers have always been some of Fortnite’s scariest weapons. The frightening sound of a sniper shot ringing out over the battlefield is enough to make players jump.
However, Fortnite has also nerfed snipers significantly since their glory days. Players can now tank 1 or 2 shots before they’re taken down making the weapon a lot less intimidating.
Now, the Heavy Sniper has returned to the loot pool! It still won’t take down a fully healed player in one shot, but it’ll doll out some real heavy hits to vehicles. Here’s how to find the Heavy Sniper in Fortnite Season 2.
Fortnite Season 2 Heavy Sniper locations
Heavy Snipers are a bit harder to find as they won’t appear as floor loot. Players can find Heavy Snipers in chests, rare chests, and supply drops.
Heavy Snipers come in Rare, Epic, and Legendary rarities. They have also been buffed to deal bonus damage to vehicles including Tanks, Battle Buses, cars, trucks, and semis.
Despite having high-caliber armor-piercing rounds, a single shot to the body still won’t take down a player. However, it will knock off their shield and then some.
The Heavy Sniper is not in Competitive Playlists just yet but will be added later. It can be found in both the casual Building and Zero Build lobbies.

All Stormtrooper Checkpoint locations in Fortnite Season 2
Players will have to visit Stormtrooper Checkpoints in Fortnite Season 2 to complete the May the 4th challenges. Here’s where they’re located!
Star Wars content has returned to Fortnite, and a few of the limited-time challenges require players to visit the new Stormtrooper NPCs.
In honor of Star Wars day, lightsabers and E-11 Blasters have returned to Fortnite Season 2. Furthermore, players can earn a free Star Wars cosmetic item by completing the limited-time challenges.
However, that’s easier said than done. Players will have to perform a variety of tasks across several matches to earn the Empire Player Banner.
A few of the quests require the player to visit a Stormtrooper Checkpoint which is home to friendly Stormtrooper NPCs. Here is where you can find each one.
Fortnite Stormtrooper Checkpoint locations
Unlike the previous times Stormtroopers have been in Fortnite, this time around they won’t attack on sight. In fact, players can talk and purchase the E-11 Blaster Rifle for 100 gold from them.
There are four challenges that have to be completed before May 17 that require players to visit the troops. They are:
- Land at a Stormtrooper Checkpoint, then place top 25
- Complete a bounty from a Stormtrooper
- Damage opponents within 30 meters using the E-11 Blaster Rifle (1,000)
- Drive a vehicle from Chonker’s Speedway or Logjam Lumberyard to a Stormtrooper Checkpoint
Since there are only three Stormtrooper checkpoints in Fortnite (and the map is so big) they might be hard to find. Below is a map that shows all three locations.
The checkpoints will be along the roadway with several roadblocks set up. While there are two or three Stormtroopers at each checkpoint, they don’t attack the player unless provoked.
