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.
