10.20.2 Patch Notes (September 4, 2019)

Weapons + Items

  • The Automatic Sniper Rifle was underperforming to some of the other Sniper Rifles. This adjustment to damage should make it more desirable as an alternative long-range weapon.
    • Increased damage from 31/33/35 to 40/42/44.


10.00 Content Update (August 6, 2019)


What's New?

  • Automatic Sniper Rifle
    • Keep your opponents pinned down at long range with this full-auto sniper rifle.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is the first sniper rifle that uses Medium Bullets as ammunition.
  • The Automatic Sniper Rifle is inspired by the VSS Vintorez Sniper Rifle, due to the similar stock, scope, and overall design of the weapon. Also, because the weapon would be a VSS in real life, this places it into the Kalashnikov family of rifles, which essentially means that the Automatic Sniper Rifle and Heavy Assault Rifle are related.
  • The reload animation for this sniper is the same animation as the Heavy Sniper Rifle.
  • This is not the first automatic Sniper as the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle was automatic, however, it technically just fired out a bullet when the trigger was held.
  • The Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle could be considered better than this weapon because it has more damage and headshot multiplier, does not consume a lot of ammo, and pretty basic and common to find. It also reloads faster than the Automatic Sniper Rifle.
