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.

Notes

  • Jumping while using the sniper rifle may cause the bullet to penetrate through the wall.
  • 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: 1042 damage, enough to kill the Brain of Cthulhu in one shot.(needs confirmation for 1.2.4)
  • Highest prefix is Unreal.
  • Ruthless Prefix gives the highest damage of every weapon in game, makes this a better choice than Unreal. 
  • Any type of bullets work on this weapon, as long as it is a ranged bullet.

Trivia

  • 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)
