For the Dead Rising 2 weapon, see Sniper Rifle (Dead Rising 2).

The sniper rifle is a Dead Rising weapon useful for taking out bosses, as it is good at long distances. The gun is preferred for bosses rather than zombies, because zombies are quite easy to kill with any weapon, whereas the sniper rifle only shoots one bullet at a time. It is not useful for clearing crowds of zombies, thus it is often best to save the sniper rifles for the bosses that need many strong hits to take down.

Hold down Tright to access the scope, and then use B and A to zoom in and out, X fires.[1]
