—Weapon description in the Gallery
The Alien Sniper Rifle or the ASR, is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 14.0.0 update.
It is an alien-themed sniper rifle that shoots a laser beam with the Ricochet attribute. It has good damage, a decent fire rate, good capacity, and high mobility.
It has the same color scheme and style of the other "Alien" themed weapons in the game, having a white body, light blue lighting, a dark blue muzzle, and some dark blue details and accents. The Alien Sniper Rifle's crosshair is a dot surrounded by big arrows.
This weapon emits a light cyan laser beam with instant bullet travel time that is visible to opponents. This laser beam can bounce through walls and can pierce through players. Moreover, this weapon has a 6x zoom optic sight, allowing the user to fight in long-range battles.
When reloading, the magazine is taken out and is replaced by another.
It gives delay on some weapons that are associated with Three Category Spam like the Thunderer and the Reflector. It also receives a delay if those weapons were shot, then quickly switched to this weapon.
This weapon is best used and medium to long ranges, though it can be used in some short ranged scenarios within closed rooms and hallways, and if you are doing the Three Category Spam with this weapon, make sure to use the Laser Cycler to avoid delays.
- Use this similarly to the Laser Bow, both work almost exactly the same, except this requires the user to reload.
- The laser bounces on the walls multiple times, use its Ricochet attribute to attack enemies around walls and corners.
- This weapon, the Alien Blaster, and the Alien Bouncer have no travel time (hitscan), unlike the other alien weapons.
- You may also try to aim for the ground for it to bounce off to the enemy, but this takes quite some skill.
- Aim for the head and take full advantage of this weapon's scope.
- Switch to a non-luminescent weapon if you wish to go in a dark place since it features glowing parts, which allows enemies to track you down.
- Use this in hallways/corridors to make use of the ricochet attribute.
- This weapon has quite a high capacity, so feel free to spam the weapon in hallways without running out of ammo.
- This does high damage so if the enemy is hit but not killed, using a high fire rate primary will finish them.
- This weapon can be suitable for Three Category Spam.
- You can counter this weapon similarly to how you would counter the Laser Bow or the Alien Gun by strafing and making yourself a difficult target.
- Try attacking in close ranges using high efficiency and high damaging weapon.
- Move swiftly in close ranges to confuse the enemy, simultaneously attack them with a shotgun or a melee weapon.
- Perform the Three Category Spam to kill the user(s) and remember to Rocket Jump, but be aware of the caveats using this strategy such as slow pullout time for some weapons.
- Attack its user(s) from behind or while he or she is reloading.
- Avoid corridor areas and stay above the ground, as the ricochet attribute will not be of much use.
This weapon works well at virtually all ranges provided that one is skilled enough.
Equip a fast firing, close range weapon such as a shotgun to finish players off.
- Initial release.
- This, along with the Royal Sniper Rifle turned into automatic sniper rifles by altering its fire rate of 97 (approximately 300 shots per minute) and turned into 9 headshots kill for a short period of time. However, its fire rate was changed back with a new shooting animation.
- It had 3 attributes instead of 4. Its scope, which was a 10x zoom, also got nerfed to a 6x zoom.
- This is the fourth "Alien" weapon to be added to the game, and the others are the Alien Rifle, the Alien Blaster, the Alien Bouncer and the Alien Cannon.
- It's one of the few Snipers in the game to feature a 6x zoom scope. This is because a nerf on the scope in 15.3.0 update, from a 10x zoom to 6x zoom.
- It is the very first weapon to have 4 attributes, all of the other weapons only can have 3 attributes or have some attributes not mentioned. Though it is changed to have 3 attributes shown after the 15.3.0 update.
- It was a 3 shot kill when released, but now it is a 1-2 headshot kill.
- It is the second sniper with the Ricochet attribute, the first being the Laser Bow.
- Both seem to have the same color scheme/theme as well as nearly the same stats and attributes, except the alien sniper requires the user to reload, since the other is a bow that requires no reload.
- It is currently a one-shot headshot when maxed out.
- This weapon formerly sounded like the Alien Blaster.
- It also looks similar to the Nerf N-Strike Longstrike ECS-6.
- It also looks very similar to the Third Eye.
