The Vervack R59 Pierce sniper rifle is the primary weapon of both the GDI and Nod Snipers.
The Sniper Rifle is a long rifle with a scope mounted on the top and a long barrel. It has a message warning about laser radiation on the side. Clips are loaded into the magazine part of the rifle.
The Sniper Rifle can precisely fire armor piercing bullets. Sometimes it is favored over the Ramjet Rifle because it does not leave traces that the enemy could employ to pinpoint the sniper's whereabouts after firing. The Sniper Rifle has two zoom lens levels and a nightvision integrated into its scope (press N to activate).
A headshot with Sniper Rifle is almost a guaranteed one hit kill; therefore it can be the bane of infantries if the wielder is skilled enough. It does basically no damage to vehicles or buildings.
