The only bolt-action sniper rifle used by the Untied States Armed Forces. This weapon is famous for its high damage, accuracy, and range capabilities. This weapon fires a CheyTac very-low-drag spin round effective at up to 3000 yards. This weapon is ideal for the US because it scores very high for 4/5 criteria: Range, Accuracy, Damage, and Mobility. Since the weapon is bolt-action, it scores low for fire rate. This weapon is overall the best sniper rifle to date.
2,100 more Interventions are being deployed tomorrow...
