Sniper Rifle is a hand held weapon in Anthem.

Unlike other weapons, Sniper Rifles do not fire when the trigger is released. They can only fire when in scoped mode.

Sniper Rifles have the lowest rate of fire and magazine sized, but the highest damage potential of all weapon classes. They can damage enemies from a long distance and on their weak points.
