Ragnarok: Twilight of Mankind
A specially constructed or modified ballistic weapon for use by sniper units, the term “sniper rifle" is used as a generic term that covers many variations on the theme of long-ranged precision projectile weapons. Like other projectile-based weapons, they are restricted by the need to carry heavier ammunition. The advantage the slug-thrower has over its energy-based opponent is that fewer enemies will recognize the report of the rifle, as opposed to a long las’ ruby beam.
