Plasma Sniper (Project)

Plasma Sniper is a research project in XCOM: Enemy Unknown.

In-Game DescriptionEdit

ProposalEdit

Our continued research into the alien's plasma weaponry has finally uncovered a fault in the design - the plasma bolt itself begins to dissipate at extreme range. We have several theories as to how this issue might be overcome, and if successful, the result would be a sniper rifle of unparalleled power.

Project ReportEdit

Codename: Osprey

Perhaps it was inevitable that we eventually be called upon to develop a weapon of this kind, just as we did with the advent of laser based weapons. By concentrating our efforts on a single, focused discharge of plasma, and ignoring some of the previous design constraints regarding size, weight, and rate of fire, we've developed an extremely lethal long range weapon. Our snipers will undoubtedly be pleased with this weapon's ability to devastate hostile targets from previously unheard of distances.

In any case, this weapon is now ready for fabrication in engineering.
