Sniper Rifles are precision weapons with such long-range accuracy that they can dominate an entire battlefield. A well-placed marksman armed with one of these weapons can potentially deter the advance of a whole army.


Variants

AP Sniper Rifle

A variant of the Sniper Rifle that fires AP Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
AP Sniper Rifle 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 AP

Each and every soldier ever deployed on Dawn, the Ariadnan home planet, has learned to fear their sharpshooters. Due to the proliferation of Sniper Rifles capable of using armor-piercing ammunition, not even heavily armored units are safe against them. All foreign troops know that at any given moment they might be the target of a sniper armed with one of these powerful guns, and the last thing they feel would be a projectile penetrating their personal armor like a hot knife through butter.


K1 Sniper Rifle

This advanced version of the Sniper Rifle has been customized to fire K1 Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
K1 Sniper Rifle 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 12 2 K1 Anti-materiel

Only select troops from the more industrially advanced armies have access to the powerful K1 ammunition, a sophisticated form of ammunition capable of penetrating any form of armor like it was not even there. A Sniper Rifle firing K1 projectiles can rule over an entire battlefield, stopping even the most heavily armored enemy troops in their tracks.


MULTI Sniper Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

A modernized, more versatile version of the standard Sniper Rifle, it can fire a range of Medium MULTI Special Ammunitions that give their user the ability to choose between three different Shooting Modes on the fly.

This new Weapon Profile replaces the version previously shown in Infinity N3.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
MULTI Sniper Rifle (AP Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 AP Medium MULTI
MULTI Sniper Rifle (Anti-materiel Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 DA Anti-materiel, Medium MULTI
MULTI Sniper Rifle (Stun Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 1 Stun Medium MULTI, Non-Lethal


The MULTI Sniper Rifle is the next evolutionary step in long-range precision firearms. The versatility of this weapon stems from its munition selector. Basic models have multiple magazines and interchangeable or rotating systems, while the more sophisticated versions use adaptive ammunition that is altered in-chamber to suit the needs of the operator. Carrying only a MULTI Sniper Rifle, a sharpshooter can switch seamlessly between an anti-tank gun capable of piercing thick armor, and an anti-personnel weapon that can neutralize even the most resilient targets.


Plasma Sniper Rifle

This might be the most advanced Sniper Rifle ever created, firing Plasma Special Ammunition.

The Plasma Sniper Rifle possesses two different Shooting Modes from which players can choose.

Blast Mode possess the Impact Template (Small Teardrop) Trait and applies the Plasma Special Ammunition across the whole Area of Effect of the Teardrop Template. Meanwhile, the Hit Mode lacks the Impact Template Trait, but it possesses a higher Damage value.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Plasma Sniper Rifle (Blast Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 14 2 Plasma Impact Template (Small Teardrop)
Plasma Sniper Rifle (Hit Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 Plasma

Perhaps the most fearsome addition to the Plasma family, this long-range Sniper Rifle has been seen covering the battlefields of Paradiso with high-powered Plasma blasts, much to the dismay of human troops. Plasma Sniper Rifles blend the accuracy of other sniper weapons with the strongest power of any Plasma weapon in use by the Combined Army. This weapon is a clear example of the superiority of VoodooTech arms, which Humanity can only aspire to imitate, and that only if they can reverse-engineer its workings first.


Smart MULTI Sniper Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

A highly sophisticated long range BS weapon.

This weapon allows its user the ability to choose between four different Shooting Modes on the fly: the usual Medium MULTI Special Ammunitions, and another which applies the Guided and the Impact Template (Circular) Traits but with a lower Damage value.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Smart MULTI Sniper Rifle (AP Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 AP Medium MULTI
Smart MULTI Sniper Rifle (Anti-materiel Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 DA Anti-materiel, Medium MULTI
Smart MULTI Sniper Rifle (Stun Mode) 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 1 Stun Medium MULTI, Non-Lethal
Smart MULTI Sniper Rifle (Guided Mode) -- -- -- -- 13 1 DA Anti-materiel, Guided, Impact Template (Circular)


The Smart MULTI Sniper Rifles come with special projectiles equipped with state of the art tracking rounds able to follow and hunt its target throughout the battlefield. This is a light support weapon with less destructive capabilities, but which compensates for that fact thanks to its longer range than traditional Smart Missile Launchers. The fact that it can also be used as a MULTI Sniper Rifle gives it a versatility highly appreciated by the special operation units.


T2 Sniper Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

This version of the Sniper Rifle is loaded with T2 Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
T2 Sniper Rifle 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 T2 Anti-materiel


The T2 Sniper Rifle was designed specifically to be used against heavy military gear. Its design is quite similar to a regular sniper rifle, with high caliber shooting capabilities at long ranges with great accuracy, but fitted with a chamber capable of holding a heavier caliber, usual of T2 ammunition. As a result, this weapon presents very high destructive capabilities per hit. However, T2 ammunition is very rare, very expensive, and bit heavier than the standard sniper rifle ammunition, which can cause certain logistics problems in prolonged campaigns.


Viral Sniper Rifle

Human Sphere N3 Content.

Variant of the Sniper Rifle that fires Viral Special Ammunition.

Name Range (inches) DAM B Ammo Traits
Short Medium Long Maximum
Viral Sniper Rifle 0-8" -3 8-16" 0 16-48" +3 48-96" -3 15 2 Viral


Viral Sniper Rifles have been nicknamed "Divine Resolution" because of their combination of deadliness and effective range. The name is completely justified because on many occasions the sniper is at such range that, even with unsilenced weapons, the hit happens before the sound of the shot arrives, due to the projectile being faster than the speed of sound. Furthermore the high lethality of Viral ammunition tends to kill the target before it hits the ground. This weapon is used not only as a conventional offensive element but also to obtain extra tactical advantages from the psychological hit to the enemy's morale.
