—Weapon's description in Gallery
It is a futuristic, long silver sniper rifle that shoots turquoise blue lasers at a fast fire rate. This weapon has high Efficiency, high fire rate, good capacity, and low mobility. It is 2-3 headshots and about 5 body shots.
This gun has a silver and gray color scheme. The lenses have a red ruby-like color. The magazine is a gray color and shows turquoise blue stripes, the handle is a gunmetal grey color and the barrel is a color similar to iron armor.
The rifle shoot turquoise blue lasers are visible for a much shorter amount of time than Prototype and even Anti-Hero Rifle lasers. These bullets can pierce through players and are shot as single shots. Moreover, this weapon possesses a 10x zoom optic sight which has a red ruby-like colored scope that allows the player to fight and snipe players in a long range.
When reloading, the player takes out the magazine, puts another one and triggers the bolt. It has no delay mechanics.
- The high fire rate can empty a magazine fast and have slow reload, make sure only fire when you spot a target,
- If absolutely need to spam the shots, wear Cowboy Hat and max Sniper Cape.
- Take advantage of piercing shot, as it can shred enemies within a short burst.
- To do so, get your targets into linear position and fire away.
- Max out this weapon to your level (if high) for it to be useful in higher levels.
- Aim for the head to increase Efficiency per shot.
- It should be used as a high priority rifle, the rifle's high ammo cap, and fire rate should be monitored as it can drain itself quickly, and its mobility is also not good.
- Taking cover is recommended when engaging a player with this weapon, due to the weapon's lack of ability to break through walls. Also, be sure to use a wall-break sniper so that way you can shoot through the wall such as the Anti-Champion Rifle. Be advised when using the Railgun to do the job, as the large recoil could cause it to misfire.
- Attack the player with a high damaging, high fire rate weapon, whilst moving around.
- Catch the sniper in close-quarter combat.
- This weapon has a low amount of ammo, so rush the sniper after they fire off a good amount of rounds.
Equip a fast-firing weapon, in case of any close encounters and finish of weakened targets.

- The word "Impulse" in the gun's name is a reference to in-game consoles commands, the "impulse" command kills off all NPCs in the game instantaneously, which might refer to the Impulse Sniper Rifle's terrifyingly high damage.
