I want to snipe some people, and so far i haven't found a real sniper rifle yet so this one has to do. However, i just can't seem to find a scope for it. I checked Wikia for it, i checked every location and it's just never there. Why?
Gun Runners vendors occasionally have them. Maybe some of the other merchants, too. Pretty much by the time it starts appearing, you should have access to the Sniper Rifle from those merchants anyways.
Ah....it must be random, i have tried several times and i didn't get it at the vendors, but just now the Vendetron has it. They also have the Sniper rifle but i dont have that money yet. So until then...i'll go with the hunting rifle. I had just bought a Varmint rifle with scope, lol...not nessecary anymore. Damn i love this game...didn't think i was gonna love it as much as Fallout 3...but i think i do.
