The Sniper Rifle is the strongest ranged weapon in the game with the highest accuracy of any gun in term of single shots, but gives poor damage per second overall. It is found in the Hard Mode Dungeon and is only dropped by the Skeleton Sniper.


  • 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.
  • Highest prefix is Unreal.
  • On mobile the weapon will always zoom in, no matter what making this weapon a bad choice for close range combat


  • It is possible to shoot an enemy through a door if the enemy is standing near one.

Update Info


  • Added to the game.
