L96 Rifle


A military issue high powered rifle.

The L96 Rifle is an end-game rifle featuring extremely accurate & long range capability. It fires 556 Rifle Ammo and can generally be considered a direct upgrade from the Bolt Action Rifle, with a single major drawback of instead being military quality - ultimately rendering it uncraftable by players.

Although the L96 Rifle is military-grade, it offers no additional base damage over the Bolt Action Rifle.

A majorly beneficial (yet often undocumented) aspect of this rifle is the extremely high velocity it applies to fired bullets; requiring almost no leading of shots whatsoever. When paired with HV 556 Rifle Ammo, it is comparable to wielding a hitscan weapon (at ranges before bullet drop-off occurs).
