Sniper Rifle

Unlike the Laser Rifle of Tribes 1 and 2, this sniper rifle fires ammo. Even though it is not an energy beam being fired at the target, energy is still used in the process. Above and below the barrel are vanes which emit energy. This energy superheats the bullet allowing it to be fired with greater energy. The ammount of energy aiding the bullet is determined by the positioning of the vanes: the closer they are to the barrel, the smaller the energy beams and therefore the less powerful, similarly, the farther away the vanes are, the larger the beam and the more powerful the energy beam is.
