Sniper rifles are a long range weapon that allows players to hang back and pick off enemies one-by-one. They are heavy hitters, high-powered and accurate.

Notes[edit | edit source]

Weapons stats can be affected by a number of factors. Obvious factors include:

Changes to a specific weapon, either through development with augmentations or through weapon mods, are reflected in the inventory entry for that specific item. They don’t appear on the blueprints.

Other explicit but perhaps less obvious factors include:

  • Profiles
  • Skill points invested in Combat Skills (other than the weapon skills) increase the bonuses from weapon skills
  • Equipped armor
  • Passive buffs from melee weapon augmentations are always active even if the melee weapon isn't in use

These effects are reflected in the blueprint stats without explicit notation.

The single-player stats shown on this page are baseline: Initiative I armor, no skill points assigned, no profile active.

Despite being classified as Rare, the single-player Pathfinder Observer only has 2 augmentation slots.

Equipped items have a green check mark Equipped Item Icon.png.

Accuracy is a different weapon property than stability. The accuracy of a weapon will change the size of the aiming reticle. Stability reduces the kickback and rise of the weapon during firing.

There is a chance that a sniper rifle purchased, crafted, found, or recovered by a Strike team Item Loot Box will drop a random augmentation on deconstruction. (See Augmentation Drops for odds of recovery). Researchable augmentations not already known will not be recovered. This drop will not be shown on the deconstruct screen and you will have to compare your inventory before/after to determine if an augmentation was dropped.

The number of sniper rifle kills can be tracked on the Accomplishments tab in the statistics menu.

The multiplayer stats shown are accurate as of Multiplayer Update - November 7, 2018.

1 The Remnant weapons (Shadow and Inferno) do not require reloading; the real firing limitation comes from overheating.

2 The Kishock Harpoon Gun is a multiplayer only weapon and can't be crafted.

3 Despite what the description says, the Isharay and Widow are not single-shot weapons but semi-automatic. Using skills to increase clip size, it is possible to get more than one shot per thermal clip.
