The medium range Special Application Sniper-Rifle features a rapid bolt action that allows users to make rapid follow up shots on target before they can reach cover.
The SAS-R is a bolt-action sniper rifle that does not have a default scope and has access to scopes 1x-4x, which have no scope sway. While hindering accuracy at range, this also makes the SAS-R very effective at medium and even close ranges.

LX Tacti-Eye (3.4X)
Featuring 3.4x magnification and a simple crosshair, OcuLuxx's Tacti-Eye owes its success to its simplicity and ease of use.
Utilizing a holographic red dot and 3.4x magnification, the NC's Laser-Assisted Combat Optics has significant flexibility over other mid-range scopes.
The TrueShot makes use of a simple crosshair and 4x magnification. Its lightweight 'box' housing obscures less than typical scopes of its class.
LX Mark IV (4X)
OcuLuxx's sturdy Mark IV scope features 4x magnification and a triple chevron reticle, allowing the user to compensate for bullet drop.
The suppressor reduces the noise and muzzle flash generated by the firearm, and prevents the player from showing on the minimap when firing. Bullet velocity and effectiveness at range are reduced.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
The straight-pull bolt allows the sniper to chamber another round while aiming down sights.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil during sustained fire.
