|“||A Kraunian rifle modified for long-range engagements. It doesn’t have the range or stopping power of other marksman rifles but more than makes up for it with unmatched reliability in a range of environments and a superior effective rate of fire.||„|
|— In-game description|
This sniper rifle stabilizes faster than its Warden counterpart but still nowhere near conventional Rifles. It is lighter and possesses a larger magazine but a shorter range. Although its theoretical fire rate is 0.5 rounds/s, you need to wait for your accuracy to recover between shots to be effective. In practice the maximum effective fire rate is around 0.2 rounds/s (5s between shots) which is achieve when prone behind full cover. It cannot be fired while standing without cover or from an Landing APC or Barge, similar to Machine Guns.
With its long range, the gun is the best to kill enemy machinegunners with ease and impunity (during the day at least). Tank commanders also make good targets if you manage to stay hidden. Due to the gun's weight and very slow stabilisation, you'll absolutely need to find a very stable firing position, preferably on elevated terrain and behind cover. Due to the heavy movement penalty when wielding the gun it's better to switch to your secondary weapon when you want to move.
This rifle bears some resemblance to a M1903A4 Springfield Rifle with a USMC Unertl style scope.
