How to get a Lever Action Rifle in Fortnite Operation Snowdown

Breath out and squeeze.


One of the new challenges for Fortnite’s Operation Snowdown event is to deal 100 damage with a Level Action Rifle. These new weapons were just introduced to the game recently, so many players out there may not be familiar with them.

The Lever Action Rifle can be gotten from chests anywhere in the game and will spawn as potential floor loot in all areas as well. You can also get the weapon from Supply Drops.

It comes in three variants, Uncommon, Rare, and Epic. It is effectively a scopeless Sniper Rifle, firing one shot with a slow enough bullet movement speed. You can fire 9 shots in pretty quick succession, and will then need to reload the weapon, which can take some time.

You only need to do 100 damage in total with the weapon for the challenge, so a clean headshot should get you there, or a couple of body shots will finish it up regardless of the rarity.
