The Whitworth Sharpshooter is a sniper rifle manufactured by Smoke Stack. It first appears at Rank 12, with [RED] versions appearing at Rank 35. A very mobile sniper rifle with a heavy-hitting round, the Sharpshooter is much stronger than many weapons of its level at first glance.
The strong characteristics of the weapon do not come without their price, however. The Sharpshooter is a single-shot weapon, and therefore cannot be augmented with Capacity or Overclocked and hampers it greatly with fighting hordes, despite its respectable pierce. Overall a weapon that benefits greatly from being in the back line with teammates to cover during its loading times.
- 1250 damage per shot. 2750 in the [RED] version. Deals Electric damage.
- Single-shot firing mode. Reload time is 2.50 seconds.
- Can hit up to four zombies per shot.
- 8% movement penalty.
- Ammunition cost is 240 credits for 60 rounds of ammunition, or 960 credits for 60 rounds of High Damage ammunition. [RED] ammo multiplies cost by ten.
