The Sniper Rifle
is one of the strongest ranged weapons in the game with the highest accuracy of any gun. It is found in the Hard Mode Dungeon
and is only dropped by the Skeleton Sniper
. It will take normal bullets like Musket Balls
, and also make use of special bullets like Chlorophyte Bullets
or Party Bullets
- It is possible to shoot an enemy through a door if the enemy is standing near one.
- Using the sniper rifle has the same zoom in/out effect as Rifle Scope, holding the right mouse button will move the FOV in the direction of the mouse, giving it wider range.
- With the right combination, this can do the highest damage in one single hit of the entire game: 1158 damage, enough to kill the Brain of Cthulhu in one shot.
- Highest prefix is Unreal.
- The Ruthless Prefix gives the highest damage of every weapon in game, making this a potentially better choice than Unreal.
- Any type of bullets work on this weapon, as long as it is a ranged bullet.
- The sniper rifle's max critical strike damage is 1042 with shroomite armor with mask and best ranged accessories.(needs confirmation for 1.2.4)
