| ||For an overview of sniper rifles that appear in the Fallout series of games, see Sniper rifle.|
|The following is based on content from Fallout: The Board Game and has not been confirmed by canon sources.|
While in a fight, the sniper rifle generates one reroll if the player character has Perception and one reroll if they have Agility. As a ranged weapon, it allows the player character to attack enemies one space away from them. However, the sniper rifle does not allow the player character to attack enemies on the same space while equipped. When rolling the VATS dice, the head side of the dice always count as a hit, regardless of the enemy's vulnerabilities.
The sniper rifle can be obtained through the shop.
