The Sniper Rifle is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and Off the Record.

A sniper rifle is a precision-rifle used to ensure more accurate placement of bullets at longer ranges than other small arms. A typical sniper rifle is built for optimal levels of accuracy, fitted with a telescopic sight and chambered for a military centerfire cartridge.

It is the second most powerful gun in Off the Record per shot, with the Super B.F.G being the most powerful.[1]

Unlike the Sniper Rifle in Dead Rising, which appears to be a civilian hunting rifle, this rifle is a large-caliber military weapon. However, like the original, the sniper rifle comes with a telescopic sight, magnifying Chuck's vision while lining up a shot. The sniper rifle will kill a zombie outright, regardless of where they are shot; furthermore, a single bullet can travel through four or even five zombies.[2]

The sniper rifle is great for psychopath battles. It is recommend that players keep one with them at all times after they have reached level 30.[2]

This firearm can be found on the upper floor of the Palisades Mall in High-Noon Shooting Range or by killing the psychopaths in the mission Militia Men.[2]

  • Main: Tap X/Square to fire the rifle from the hip. This most often results in body-shotting nearby zombies.
  • Aim: Pressing and holding Ltrigger causes Chuck to shoulder the sniper rifle and line up a shot through the telescopic sight. (Then up and down on the D-pad to zoom in and out.)
