GSR - Accuracy

20181121133425 1

The GSR series focus entirely on extended range and improved accuracy, at the cost of hitting power. They are a good way to balance out the poor accuracy of low-level Snipers, but are not much good at anything other than scoring headshots on basic infantry, and their low damage means that their interception fire is much easier for enemies to "tank" than that of the other sniper rifle models.

LF-ASR - 3-round burst

20181121133418 1

The LF ASR series can only be used by Elite (rank 11+) Snipers. These weapons fire three times (still only costing 1 ammo) when used in their aimed fire mode, and also fire three shots between reloads when being used for interception fire. Their damage output exceeds the other two stock sniper rifles, though their accuracy and range suffers for it.

Note that when reading the table below, it is damage for each shot fired: the whole burst does three times this amount.

Limited-Quantity Weapons

Rewards

Most of these weapons are earned by fulfilling certain criteria in Chapter 2 part 1, Chapter 4 parts 1 and 3, Chapter 6 part 1, Chapter 9, Chapter 11, Chapter 13, Chapter 14, Chapter 15 part 1, Chapter 17 part 1, and the sub-episode Squad E Assembles. Specifically, a random reward weapon (all types) is unlocked for each of the following:

  • Obtain A rank.
  • Kill all enemy Leaders.
  • Destroy all tanks (doesn't include bosses or fixed weapons).
  • No squad member deaths.
  • No squad members in critical condition or evacuated.

The quality of the unlocks appears to be based on the amount of R&D weapons researched, and is based on a rank system from 1 to 5. Post-game, Renown Points can be traded for a random reward weapon of a specified level at the Infirmary.

They feature the only appearance of the Brondel status-effect sniper rifles from the original game. Unique among them is the Gautt R, an anti-tank rifle which allows a Sniper to deal enough damage to destroy normal tanks in a single shot by aiming at the radiator.

Captured

20181121133431 1

Captured Imperial sniper rifles tend to have inferior accuracy and range, with the principle benefit being increased power: at high levels, they are as accurate as some of the stock sniper rifles, while still boasting improved damage. The DLC weapons are both anti-tank rifles: their vs Pers is so low it is actually exceeded by the late-model Brown series rifles, but their vs Armor is on par with the first model of Lance in the first case and a mid-game Lance in the second.

Trivia

  • The description of the LF-ASR series says there were not "true sniper rifles" in Edinburgh service, with the country just picking particularly accurate rifles off the production line. The thing is, this is how all sniper rifles were "made" before the advent of modern production controls that could consistently produce rifles to tight manufacturing tolerances without a lot of expensive hand-finishing.
  • If an AI elite sniper is hit with the "no ammo" debuff from interception fire, they will switch to their Intercept Fire rounds to attack. This is not something player-controlled Snipers can do, and is probably due to the engine treating the interception fire as a distinct weapon it cannot disallow the use of.
