The Sniper Rifle is the Nighthawk's signature weapon, formerly referred to as the Bolt Action Rifle. Fires a high damage round at a low rate of fire and high spread (when not scoped). Like the Charge Rifle, its secondary fire is a 4-8x zoom scope, its primary fire deals double damage on a critical hit, and it can penetrate shields such as those produced by Chosen Drones. When hip fired, the rifle's accuracy decreases, but otherwise remains the same.
