The Impetus is a low-zoom, semi automatic Sniper Rifle. It is most comparable to the Gauss SPR, but has a lower muzzle velocity and has access to x1 - x4 scope. However, it cannot use x6 optic. It can drop targets with three body shots or two head shots. It is best used at medium range with a highly mobile play style. The VS equivalent is Phantom VA23; TR equivalent is KSR-35.
