S2 AM Sniper Rifle

Manual Description:

This rifle is a gas-operated, magazine-fed weapon. It is issued with a smart-linked scope with two levels of magnification (press in the Right thumbstick one for 2x, press again for 10x, and once more to deactive). Also, while still in zoom mode you can press the White button to active light amplification. It fires 14.5 armor piercing fin-stabilized discarding-sabot rounds.

WARNING: The 14.5x 114mm APFSDS round is an anti-materiel munition. It can easily over-penetrate several armored soldiers. Be sure of what is on the other side of your target before firing.

An excellent long-range weapon. Powerful shots, but slow firing speed; also, beware of only four shots to a magazine.
