SNIPER RIFLES

Sniper rifles boast the best accuracy, range, and damage per shot out of all firearm types. Naturally, they have very low fire rates (with the exception of the Whirlwind). The opposite of the shotgun fighting style, sniper rifles are suitable for long-range gunplay, allowing you to pick off foes before they can notice and engage you. Sniper rifles are an excellent choice for Ranger and Storm javelins, especially if you’re part of a team with a Colossus who can create space for you.


DEADEYE

The Deadeye allows you to deliver heavy strike force from a long distance. This is not a rapid-fire weapon as it’s intended to be a targeted strike rifle. Use it judiciously from long range to surgically soften objectives.

Raptor's Sense: Hovering while firing increases weapon weak point damage by 40%.


DEVASTATOR

This rifle delivers tremendous knockdown force at long distance. Its ammunition also explodes on contact, increasing damage to the target. It has a limited amount of ammunition, so it’s meant to be used tactically, with extreme prudence.

Truth of Tarsis

Ammunition explodes on contact. Hitting weakpoints on enemies under a status effect will set off a chain combo.


WHIRLWIND

The Whirlwind is a hybrid between range rifles and assault rifles. What it gives up in striking power is compensated with a rate of fire approaching that of the standard assault rifle.
