Sniper Rifle is a man-portable, high precision, shoulder-fired rifle, designed to ensure more accurate shooting at longer ranges than other small arms. A typical sniper rifle is built for high levels of accuracy, fitted with a telescopic sight and chambered for a military centerfire cartridge.
Sniper rifles are highly accurate and extremely powerful rifles with several firing modes, including bolt-action, semi and/or fully automatic. This weapon class allow the operator to oversee longer distances and to have better accuracy when using the scope. For these reasons, sniper rifles are mainly used for long range combats in medium to large maps.
