—Weapon's description in Gallery
The "Sunrise" is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 10.0.0 update.
It is a Steampunk themed sniper rifle that is based on the Winchester Model 1886. It possesses a 10x scope and it shoots normal bullets, despite its firing sound suggesting otherwise. It has a decent fire rate with high capacity and good mobility.
The "Sunrise" is a lever-action repeating rifle. Its body is gold and brown, with a gold and brown handle, a gold lever. A black scope with three gold rings sits on the top a blue magazine, and a brown and slightly gold barrel with a grey and blue long-barrel with four gold rings. It also has a 10x scope with a golden string near the brown and gold handle.
The sniper shoots regular, blue bullets that deal damage at an instant bullet travel time (hit-scan). This sniper's high fire rate allows repetitively shooting the bullets faster than most snipers. It has a 10x scope which allows picking off users from long range. When reloading, the blue magazine is taken out and is replaced by a new one. It has no delay mechanics.
It has high Efficiency, a good rate of fire, great capacity (For a Sniper), and surprisingly good mobility.
- Try to avoid close and medium range areas and stay in long range ones.
- While unsuspected, try to get a headshot on a target for an easy kill.
- This can be used to pick off heavily armored players or severely damaging them.
- This weapon can also be used to take down highly mobile or Jetpack users, due to this weapon dealing high damage, and a decently fast fire rate. However, try to aim well in the process, since your ammo will be put to waste if you continue to miss the shots.
- Move fast and jump quickly while strafing to make it harder for enemies to hit you.
- Stay in small areas to make it harder for enemies when they are trying to attack you.
- Make uncommon moving patterns to make the user switch to their other weapons. If they pulled out a powerful weapon. Try to Rocket Jump away from them and try to finish them off after the rocket jump.
- Kill them with the Demon Stone when they are unaware.
- Use a one-shot sniper weapon such as the One Shot or Anti-Champion Rifle, but make sure to aim well since he/she will overwhelm you with this weapon's fire rate.
Use a weapon to weaken heavily armored enemies before finishing them off at a closer range. The Sniper Cape is also highly recommended alongside with any other damage-increasing accessories.
Also, this weapon can two shot roughly by having damage increasing items, and it does have a good fire rate so you can go toe to toe with most other weapons.
- Initial release.
- Its shooting sound was modified. Its fire rate and capacity were nerfed.
