Automatic Sniper Rifle was a sniper rifle that is available in Uncommon, Rare, Epic and Legendary variants. It uses Medium Bullets as ammunition instead of the usual Heavy Bullets. This sniper is fully automatic, has a x2.0 headshot multiplier instead of normal x2.5, holds a magazine of 16 bullets and the projectiles it fires are faster than any sniper. The Automatic Sniper Rifle has been vaulted in Patch 11.0 in order to free up space. It was also vaulted due to not many people using it in game.
The Automatic Sniper Rifle has been brought back in the Fog of Wars LTM, it was probably unintended.
This is not the first automatic Sniper as the Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle was automatic, however, it technically just fired out a bullet when the trigger was held.
The Storm Scout Sniper Rifle and Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle could be considered better than this weapon because it has more damage and headshot multiplier, does not consume a lot of ammo, and pretty basic and common to find. It also reloads faster than the Automatic Sniper Rifle.
This is arguably the worst sniper in the game due to the long reload, reduced zoom, and the low damage.
Unlike other snipers though, the point is to continuesly shoot. It still takes 0.75 seconds to kill someone.
If the Automatic Sniper had the same projectile bullets as the Scoped Assault Rifle, this weapon would be very overpowered regarding damage values and fire rate.
