The Rifle appears to be a semiautomatic designated-marksman rifle that fires high-velocity 7.62mm rounds. It is primarily used as a sniper rifle by infantry, and is equipped with an optical zoom to help snipers make accurate, long-distance shots.
The default variation of the Rifle functions as a medium to long-range marksman rifle, with the ability to dispatch human targets with a single headshot. The Rifle can also be used against VS and Akrids, but only inflict small damage.
The Gold Rifle is essentially a gold-plated version of the default rifle, possessing identical characteristics aside from its appearance.
- In Lost Planet, one headshot is enough to kill a human, otherwise 2 shots are necessary.
- Players who are killed by this weapon can sometimes locate the enemy sniper and warn their teammates of his location, because of the white trail left by the shot.
