The Semi Auto Sniper Rifle is a Sniper weapon that was introduced in the 10.6.0 update.

Appearance

The weapon has a design of a bullpup sniper rifle. It has a red body, a black handguard, a grey barrel and magazine, a 10x scope, muzzle brake and retractable stock.

Strategy

It has medium-high, a very high rate of fire, large capacity, average mobility, and high reload time for levels between 12 and 21.

Tips

  • This gun is useful in taking down air targets with its high damage and fire rate and low recoil, the same goes with ground targets while you are in the air.
  • Due to the burst fire, the recoil will affect the number shots that hit the target so aim for the middle of the body to conserve ammo.
    • If using this weapon in Sniper Tournament, it is absolutely recommended to equip Steel Hands.

Counters

  • Strafe around the player to avoid being shot by the weapon.
  • Hide behind an object, or outflank the user.
  • Any Primary weapons can overwhelm the user due to its fire rate.
  • Area damage can make short work on its users in close range.

Supported Maps

Weapon Setups

Have a Backup weapon if engaged in close quarters.

Trivia

  • It is somewhat based on the Barrett M95 or the Barrett XM500, a similar bullpup rifle.
    • The pistol grip and handguard are fairly similar to that of the conceptual MR-C assault rifle.
  • It has the highest firing rate of any weapon located in the sniper section.
  • It may be based on Respawnables' Semi-Automatic Sniper.
  • The name is misleading, as this weapon is technically a burst-fire, not semi-automatic.
    • Furthermore, the attribute (Semi-Auto Semi-Auto) that was introduced by this weapon should have been named "Burst Shot", considering the mechanics of the firing system that this weapon features.
  • This, Champion/Mercenary and Sakura are the only weapons that can fire in bursts.
  • Burst-fire sniper rifles seem to have the fire rate of 98, which is somewhat misleading.
  • As in 16.5.0, this rifle is 5 headshots kill (1 and 2/3 bursts).
  • The triangle on the weapon maybe a reference to the Atlas Corporation from Call of Duty: Advance Warfare,due to the triangle bearing similarities to the Atlas Corporation logo.
