The Alien Sniper Rifle is a Sniper Weapon introduced in the 14.0.0 update.

Description

It is a sniper rifle that is alien-themed, which shoots a laser beam with a ricochet. It has good damage, a decent fire rate, good capacity, and high mobility.

 Appearance

It has the same color scheme and style of the other "Alien" themed weapons in the game, having a White body, light blue lighting, a dark blue muzzle, and some dark blue details and accents.

Performance

This weapon emits a light cyan laser beam with instant bullet travel time that is visible to opponents. This laser beam can bounce through walls and can pierce through players. Moreover, this weapon has a 6x zoom optic sight, allowing it to fight in longer-range battles.

When reloading, the magazine is taken out and is replaced by another.

It receives a delay if weapons associated with Three Category Spam like the Thunderer and the Reflector were shot, then quickly switched to this weapon.

Strategy

This weapon is best used and medium to long ranges, though it can be used in some short-ranged scenarios within closed rooms and hallways.

Tips

  • Use this similarly to the Laser Bow, both work almost exactly the same, except this requires the user to reload.
  • The laser bounces on the walls multiple times, use its Ricochet attribute to attack enemies around walls and corners.
    • You may also try to aim for the ground for it to bounce off to the enemy, but this takes quite some skill.
  • Aim for the head and take full advantage of this weapon's scope.
  • Switch to a non-luminescent weapon if you wish to go in a dark place since it features glowing parts, which allows enemies to track you down.
  • Use this in hallways to make use of the ricochet attribute.
  • This weapon has quite a high capacity, so feel free to spam the weapon in hallways without running out of ammunition.
  • This does high damage so if the enemy is hit but not killed, using a high fire rate primary will finish them.
  • This weapon is able to be used for Three Category Spam because it doesn't have any delay when switching.

Counters

  • You can counter this weapon similarly to how you would counter the Laser Bow or the Alien Gun by strafing and making yourself a difficult target.
  • Try attacking in close ranges using high efficiency and high damaging weapon.
  • Move swiftly in close ranges to confuse the enemy, simultaneously attack them with a shotgun or a melee weapon.
  • Perform the Category spam to kill the user and remember to rocket jump. But be aware of the caveats using this strategy such as slow pullout time for some weapons.
  • Attack its users from behind or while he is reloading.

Trivia
