The Sniper Rifle is a high caliber scoped weapon featured in RAGE. It has the highest range and accuracy of all the weapons and can be obtained from Dan Hagar during the quest "Destroy the Barricade". It will usually kill an enemy in one headshot, unless the target is wearing a helmet.
When you first acquire it, the weapon appears to be a bolt-action rifle. Despite it only having one ammunition type, it boasts high range and deals a significant amount of damage in a single shot. It is by no means a stealthy weapon, making an extremely loud sound when fired and alerting nearby enemies. The scope has two magnification settings, toggled with the "Use/Interact" button, and also includes an ammo counter and reloading indicator.
- The Sniper Rifle is required for the Achievement/Trophy "Open Minded", earned by getting ten headshots with the weapon.
