Sniper Rifles
Bolt action sniper new.png

Sniper Rifles are ranged weapons. Almost every Sniper Rifle uses Heavy Bullets as their choice for ammo. They have a Headshot Multiplier of 2.5x, (except for one Sniper), and they're effective at Long Range. They also are one of the few weapons in the game that are not Hitscan. Instead, they fire projectiles, and therefore have travel time and bullet drop.

Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • The projectile takes time to hit the opponent so you will have to lead your shot.
  • They are very powerful at medium to long ranges if you have time to line up your shot. However, they are not recommended for close range fights because they have few rounds in the magazine and if you miss a shot, you most likely have to wait for a long reload Time.
  • If you miss or do not kill the opponent with the sniper rifle, it is recommended to follow up with an Assault Rifle of some sort.
  • Practice aiming for the body first, as it is much easier to miss while aiming for the head.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • When not scoping in, Sniper Rifles have a huge amount of bloom.
  • The Zapotron was the 1st sniper to have Hitscan.
  • All sniper rifles & crossbows have been vaulted at least once.
  • The Hunting Rifle and Zapotron are the only 2 snipers to not have a scope.
  • The biggest magazine size, is used with the Automatic Sniper Rifle, having 16 bullets.The sniper with the least damage is the Uncommon (Currently in the game files) Automatic Sniper Rifle (38), while the one with the most damage is the Legendary Zapotron (150), but we also consider the Legendary Heavy Sniper Rifle (132).
  • Most of the Sniper Rifles have very low DPS, but not every single one. The highest DPS of the Sniper Rifles is the Legendary Automatic Sniper Rifle (176), while the lowest is the Rare Suppressed Sniper Rifle, just 30.03.
