The Sniper Rifle is a weapon in Just Cause 2.

For any other kind of sniper rifle, see: Sniper Rifle (disambiguation).


The weapon seems to be based on a PSL with a polymer stock and handguard, a weapon very similar aesthetically to the Dragunov SVD, but internally is more similar to a Kalashnikov rifle.


The weapon is especially good for assassinating colonels, as headshots will always result in a one-shot kill, and the scope allows a player to take them out at range, before they have the chance to shoot back. When shooting at a moving motorcycle directly front-on, there's a chance that it'll launch the motorcycle into the air. It can also, like the Revolver, kill helicopter pilots through the windshield with a single bullet, though doing so with this against an attack helicopter is much more dangerous as the player will be exposed to its guns. Otherwise, it is not recommended when facing a large number of enemies due to its low rate of fire and low reserve ammunition. It will take out any target within 1 shot after it is upgraded to level 6.

Even at level 1, Colonels can be killed in one headshot from this weapon.

At level 6, it was a noticeable change in firing rate compared to other levels, and can unofficially be used as a scoped assault rifle.
