Sniper Rifles are a type of Ground Weapon. Their primary fire method shoots a bolt of energy at a target.
They also have a secondary fire mode that shoots a concentrated bolt of energy at a single target further away than any other weapon, dealing high damage with a good chance to knock back. These shots have the ability to deal a large amount of bonus damage if the target is exposed.
Depending on the type of energy used, these weapons usually come with a 2.5% chance of applying a specific effect to the target, unless otherwise stated.
