Variants

.308 variant

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

The original variant of the rifle.

.223 variant

Gameplay articles: Fallout, Fallout 2

Originally .308, this version is chambered in the more common .223 caliber.

7.62mm variant

Gameplay article: Fallout Tactics

Originally .308, this one is chambered in the more common 7.62mm caliber[1].

Victory Rifle

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

While identical in strength and appearance to the basic .308 Sniper Rifle, the Victory Rifle is a more durable version. The projectiles also possess extra force, and are capable of knocking a target down on some occasions.

Reservist's Rifle

Gameplay article: Fallout 3

Also identical to the basic variant in base strength, the Reservist's Rifle has an incredibly high critical hit chance and a substantially higher rate of fire, but only holds 3 rounds in a magazine.

Notes and references

  1. Apparently, the makers of Fallout Tactics were not aware of the fact that .308 is the same caliber as 7.62mm, just in inches. By .308, they probably mean 7.62 × 51 mm NATO (as the commercial version is widely known as .308 Winchester) and by 7.62mm, they probably meant 7.62x54mm or 7.62x39mm, the Russian equivalents

A Sniper Rifle has been featured in every Grand Theft Auto game since Grand Theft Auto III with the exception of Grand Theft Auto Advance. It is often required in missions to shoot enemy gang members at a distance, especially when the goal is to protect an ally from far away. At long range, the sniper rifle usually provides a stealth kill, however it is not silenced, and should be fired far away from pedestrians and police. The rifle's magnifying scope is a valuable reconnaissance tool, and is also useful for viewing small game details like magazine covers and in-car objects.

Like in many computer games, the rifle's bullets fly straight to the targeted point (it is a 'hitscan' weapon) - real life variables like distance, wind, or target movement don't affect the bullet.

In Grand Theft Auto III, Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories and Grand Theft Auto IV, the sniper rifle is based on the Remington 700. Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories is the lone exception; its sniper rifle is based on a Springfield M21, reflecting the game's setting of 1984, but it functions incorrectly as a bolt-action rifle.

The GTA IV Sniper Rifle is said to be twice as powerful as the Combat Sniper rifle; it is, however, a bolt action rifle, and thus can't fire nearly as fast. It provides a one-headshot kill in single player and multiplayer, unless the target is heavily armored.

The sniper rifle only appears in certain missions of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, where the player has to assemble the rifle using the touch screen. The whole top screen is then used to display the scoped view.

Broker

  • East Hook - Can be found on a gantry crane at the docks where the Platypus is berthed, which is located on Mohanet Ave. Specifically, the gantry crane closest to the bow on the starboard side of the ship.

Dukes

  • Steinway - Can be found atop a ferry terminal-type structure in Gantry Park, located off Dukes Drive. From the leftmost portion of the docks, the rifle is located atop the second structure.

Algonquin

  • Northwood - Can be found atop a crude oil refining tower at the intersection of Exeter Ave and Grummer Rd, near the water's edge.

Trivia

  • The Sniper Rifle in GTA San Andreas has three weapon skills defined in the game's files, however only one is used in the game. The unused skill levels can be attained with cheats.
  • Shooting at the moon in every Grand Theft Auto game with the Sniper Rifle will make it bigger and smaller.
  • In Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, the icon for the Sniper Rifle resembles the PSG-1 from Vice City and Liberty City Stories. However, while being assembled, the rifle resembles a cross between the Remington 700 of Grand Theft Auto IV and the M21 of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories.

A DC-15x Sniper Rifle.
"A well-built sniper rifle is a beautiful thing. Ours has two separate levels of zoom: 'Up-close-and-personal' and 'Hello-you're-dead.'"
RC-1207

Sniper rifles were long-range weapons, either projectile or, more commonly, blaster-based. The purpose of a sniper rifle was to kill a target at extreme distances. A blaster-based sniper rifle fired a long beam of energy, capable of killing with a single headshot. Tusken Raiders on Tatooine often used projectile sniper rifles to take potshots at podracers. A sniper rifle was used by Zam Wesell to destroy her ASN-121 droid during the plot to assassinate Senator Padmé Amidala in 22 BBY. Another was used by Aurra Sing during the Senate hostage crisis.

The Tenloss Criminal Syndicate was the maker of the notorious DXR-6 disruptor rifle, which, when fitted with a zoom scope, became an especially deadly sniper rifle.

In the days of the Old Republic, Aratech was notable for their highly-accurate sniper weapons.
