A sniper rifle of a super-soldier. You will need to rack a slide a lot, but an 8x zoom and a thermal visor that allow you to see enemies through walls will make you forget about this disadvantage.

Strategy

Tips

  • Use this weapon at long distances to maximize the scope's usefulness.
    • Use it like the Third Eye, but with 8x zoom.
  • Be sure to aim for the head to maximize Efficiency per shot and conserve ammunition.
    • When against an unarmored opponent, aim for the center of mass instead. They will be downed in a single body shot, and aiming for the center of mass can make aiming easier.
  • Take the time to aim first if locked in a sniper duel.
  • In Team Fight, pick off key targets (i.e. Ghost Lantern users) to prevent enemies from getting fast easy kills.
  • This can one-shot players so try to be accurate so you can get fast kills.
  • As always, don't stand still while shooting.
    • Keep moving while sniping, since being stationary will make you an easier target.
  • It is a low/medium mobility weapon, so use any mobile guns to run away or a heavy to Rocket Jump.
  • Try to switch to a area damaging weapon after this so your target will get killed immediately.
  • This weapon can also be used for Three Category Spam, although it does have a delay when switching with some weapons.

Counters

  • Get in close with a weapon with lots of damage. However, if you approach head-on, experienced players can kill you without using the scope. Ambush the user or attack from behind for the best results.
  • A fast-firing weapon with a scope such as the Adamant Sniper Rifle will make the most of the weapon's slow firing speed.
  • Avoid routes that other users are known to frequent.
  • Area damage or fast firing weapons can disorient the users' aim and make quick work of them.
  • Don't try to hide, because the player will be able to detect you with the X-Ray vision. Moreover, even if you hide, try running and strafing constantly.
  • Jump around to ensure that he/she will waste his ammo or time in an effort to fire at you.
  • Experienced users can easily no-scope with this weapon, so strafing regardless of the range is recommended in that case.
