Legendary (Yellow) Semi-Auto Sniper Rifle
Far better than finding yourself in a frantic duel is, of course, to eliminate the opponent before they’ve even seen you coming. To that end, you have the humble yet effective Sniper Rifle.

Legendary (Yellow) SMG

- Damage: 17
- Fire Rate: 12
- Mag: 0
- Reload: 4.5
Legendary (Yellow) Suppressed Pistol
