The DKS-501 Sniper Rifle is an excellent long range projectile weapon. Originally .308, this version is chambered in the more common .223 caliber.


This rifle allows the user to do insane damage to the critical body areas, if player has the stats to back it up. The Sniper Rifle does not share the same reduction in accuracy when enemies close in as the Scoped Hunting Rifle.

The Sniper Rifle boasts good damage, max range, and ammo for it is quite common. It has two glaring flaws however - it has a small ammo capacity, and costs an extra AP to fire. This means targeted shots, although accurate, take 7 AP to fire.

If you look closely, the sniper rifle looks quite similar to the Wattz 2000 Laser Rifle
