How to Get an Explosive Repeater Rifle in Fortnite

What Is the Explosive Repeater Rifle in Fortnite?
The Explosive Repeater Rifle falls under the category of Sniper Rifles, utilizing Heavy ammunition to fire bullets that detonate upon impact.
This means that you do not need to directly hit an enemy to deal damage while using this weapon. By aiming at the ground near players, you can effectively harm them with the resulting explosion.
If you suspect an enemy is hiding in a nearby bush, you can shoot bullets at the shrubbery to potentially kill them with the explosive rounds.
Has the Heavy Sniper Rifle Been Vaulted?
Yes, on June 27, 2023, the developers vaulted the Heavy Sniper Rifle in Fortnite. The Explosive Repeater Rifle replaced this formidable scoped weapon.
Sniper enthusiasts in Fortnite might find this disappointing. Although the Explosive Repeater Rifle falls under the Sniper category technically, it fails to provide the same level of satisfaction as landing shots with the long-range scoped weapon.
