The Sniper Rifle is one of the strongest weapons in the game. With a high Firearms skill, it can take out a White Strain zombie with a single shot to the head. It can be very useful when raiding looters: by drawing them away from their hideout, they can be shot down one by one without any damage taken. The Sniper Rifle can shoot four rounds before it needs to reload. It also increases the character's range of view, allowing the player to see further.
|“||The Sniper Rifle does a high amount of damage but it's hard to aim and has a big kick, making it a better choice for those with a high Firearms skill. It also takes a long time to reload, and has a small clip which can make it difficult to use when being swarmed by enemies. On the other hand, due to its scope you can see further when carrying it.||”|
