Design and Performance


The heavy sniper has a Picatinny rail just like the M82A3. It very much resembles the M107 and the Barrett M82 Rifle. It can be fitted with a normal scope or an advanced scope. The capacity of the mag is 6 rounds after which it reloads. The default gun has a fully black body with a few markings on the scope.


(The Heavy Sniper being held in first person perspective)


This weapon is a one-shot kill with high penetration armor piercing .50 BMG cartridges. The advanced scope can be zoomed in to quite a distance helping with a very precise shot. This gun can be reloaded even without scoping out and being semi-automatic. It can shoot rounds without long intervals in between, unlike bolt action rifles. The sniper can however not be fitted with a suppressor and hence cannot be used stealthily. The Marksman Pistol is the only gun that beats the Heavy Sniper considering the damage done by a single bullet.

Locations


  • Acquired by Franklin during Three's Company and Michael will have it by Blitz Play.

    • Both protagonists' have advanced scopes equipped on them and will remain in their inventory afterward.

  • Can be purchased from Ammu-Nation for $9,500 after completing the mission Three’s Company.


Trivia


  • Despite being semi-automatic, the sound of a bolt-action is heard when aiming the scope.

  • The HUD icon depicts the weapon with the scope mounted on the upper receiver, the upper rail moved further to the front and lacking a cheek rest, while the enhanced version depicts a more correctly modeled icon, although the vents are different compared to the in-game version.

  • The text on the left side of the gun in the enhanced version appears to be oversized and partially cut, resulting in an odd display.
