Laser Sniper Rifle

The Laser Sniper Rifle provides a greater chance of inflicting critical damage to enemy targets. However, due to the unwieldy nature of this rifle, our soldiers will suffer a penalty when attempting to strike targets at close range.

  • An improvement on the Sniper Rifle
  • Unlike other weapons, Sniper Rifles are less accurate as the shooter's range to target decreases
  • Snipers cannot move and fire in the same turn, unless trained appropriately
  • Consider equipping snipers with the best pistols in XCOM's arsenal

  • The Laser Sniper Rifle is the first major weapon upgrade for Snipers.
  • While the listed Critical Damage (on the EW DLC) is 9-11, the actual values are either 9 (66% of the shots) or 10 (33%) due to a bug.
