Sniper Rifle Description:

The Sniper Rifle holds a scope that turns every shot into a deadly bolt, being capable of one-shotting unsuspecting enemies. Its reload speed is a bit slower than the ordinary Rifle, but the wait is for sure worth it.

The Sniper Rifle can be purchased from Ammu-Nation for a price of $5,000 (or 20% higher in Las Venturas).

It becomes available after completing the mission Pier 69 in Story Mode.
