VA39 Spectre semi-automatic sniper rifle is the standard squad support weapon of Vanu Sovereignty Infiltrators. It is one of the few VS sniper rifles without bullet drop.

400 @ 8 meters
334 @ 98 meters
260 @ 200 meters
The 7x magnification on the TSO gives it an edge over the typical standard-issue sniper optics. It uses mil-dot sighting inside of its triangular body.
Designed as a longer range option to the standard TriGon, the TG-8 features increased 8x magnification and mil-dot sighting.
The Mach-10 scope was designed by the Vanu Sovereignty's internal AdvMat labs. It possesses 10x magnification and mil-dot sighting inside of its circular housing.
Created by the VS's AdvMat labs, the Mach-12's extreme 12x magnification and mil-dot sighting provides the user with clear shots at distant targets.
The weapon's muzzle flash and noise generation is reduced, and the player no longer appears on the minimap when firing. In exchange, the weapon's damage falls off 20 meters sooner, and bullet velocity is reduced by 15%.
The rail mounted Darklight Flashlight can illuminate hostile cloaked infiltrators and dark areas but the light can give away your position.
An advanced on-board computer compensates for the minor movements while aiming down sights, effectively eliminating scope sway for the marksman.
A forward grip increases control of the weapon, reducing horizontal recoil by 25%.
