and gamers and fans are really really mad about it, as usual twitter is blowing up with angry fans disagreeing with this decision they made.

Epic Games received outright criticism on Twitter from players who are dissatisfied with the Sniper Rifles being removed from Fortnite Season 6.

A huge section of the community believes that the publisher is changing the game because of the copious collaborations. Thus, the game saw a major meta shift in Fortnite Season 6, where crafting takes precedence over long-ranged-combat.

Fortnite Sniper montages, 360 no-scopes, and trick shots are popular on Tiktok and YouTube. Without Sniper Rifles, creators cannot make these videos in Season 6, which means a lot of videos will not be made, and Fortnite content creators reduces.

Players have started criticizing the current dynamic, which effectively forces them to craft weapons by killing wildlife on the map. Twitter user @taskervo remarks that the traditional system with normal weapons should return in Season 6. players has started a petition, they want Epic Games to return their beloved snipers to the game back.

Epic Games has not showed any signs of returning the snipers to Fortnite Season 6 anytime soon, Perhaps the company is tired of running the game so they’re trying to frustrate users out of it, only time will tell.
