This is the first weapon in the line of Sniper Rifles that survivors can use. Like all others, it requires the Sniper Rifles Skill to equip. It is considered as a Rifle for the purposes of modifiers and damage bonuses.
This is an exceptionally unwieldy weapon - as such, it reduces a survivor's Walk Speed and Evasion by 20%.
- Sniper Rifles are slow and powerful. Users should stay behind cover and avoid melee attackers.
- Due to their low speed, snipers should always be coupled with fast firing weapons to address groups of small, fast enemies.
- Beyond their exceptional range, the sniper rifle also grants +2 Vision Range. Use it well.
