Deadly in the hands of a skilled
Infiltrator, the bolt action TSAR-42 features a unique bolt rotation system designed to improve the time between shots.
The TSAR is the TR's iron sight bolt-action sniper rifle. It is useful for snipers who do not wish to contend with the breathing mechanic or who want to snipe at closer ranges. It has average bullet velocity and low time between shots. Best used at medium to low-long range.
RTA Reflex Sight (1x)
The TR's Rapid Target Acquisition sight provides no magnification, but uses a clear red dot sight for close-combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
MH2 Reflex Sight (2x)
The Terran MH2 features 2x magnification inside of a holographic red dot sight, giving it the advantage in urban combat situations. More reticles for this scope available, see full article.
Equipped with a combination chevron/crosshair reticle and 3.4x magnification capabilities, the TR's Designated Marksman Optics functions well at many ranges.
Using a red dot reticle with 3.4x optical magnification, the TR's Holographic Dot Sight performs well in close and mid-range combat scenarios.
Sharpshooters have long preferred the Terran Marksman Scope, praising its simple 4x magnified crosshair for its versatility and efficiency.
The Terran Republic's Advanced Combat Scope utilizes a triple chevron reticle and 4x magnification, making it a good choice for all-around use.
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 by 25%.
Ribbons and Medals Edit
It is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals for using the TSAR-42. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with the TSAR-42. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the TSAR-42.
