Day 17 - Phase Rifle

"This scope just isn't cutting it. Do you have anything higher powered?" "Well no, but here's a second one!"

Weapon Feature Video: http://www.gamespot.com/wii/action/theconduit2/video/6286415

High (really high) powered sniper rifle. Has the ability to shoot through walls, probably with a limit on how deep or the material of the wall. Nobody has survived a shot in any videos, but there is at least one perk that reduces damage and might prevent a OSOK to the leg once the game comes out. Also, nobody has fired without using the scope and the crosshairs are so far apart that it may not even be possible to hit a target without scoping. The gun has to be pointed at a target for a short time to gain a "heat-signature" through walls, but there's no word on whether that is necessary to hit an uncovered target.

Surely there's no problem with them putting me in Brawl, right?
It's ****ing satire, damnit. My quote rocks your socks.

Got a problem with a turret call your friendly neighborhood sniperman.

Sniperman, sniperman,
Shoots whatever his scope can scan,
Is it safe, am I clear,
Oh no, that's blood in my ear,
Bamm, Bamm,
Nobody sees the sniper, man!
Is he there?
In that bush?
He'll put a bullet in your toosh.
Can I hide, from his gun?
No, so I suggest you run.
Oh no,
I think I heard the sniper, man.
In the darkest room
Behind the thickest crate
All you hear is boom
Which reveals your fate.
Sniperman, sniperman
Sneaky, silent killer man
Know his name, know the lore
That may be him behind the door.
With him, he'll take your life with no hang up
Your brains will need to be scraped up
'Cause of the Sniperman.

This is my go to weapon, I love sniping and put extended mags, fast reload, increased bullet damage, and sprint on man awesome class.

HELLZ YEAH! cant wait for this, I bet it will be hard to use though. People have been saying its going to be sheap, but you have to coack it after every shot! so you have to make your shots count! plus it might take a little bit to get the heat sig., through the wall, but I cant wait for this one. I bet some people will do amazing things with it like noscopes :)!

I'm now looking forward to this game just so i can demonlish tconslayer's pitiful attempts to no scope with the Phase Rifle.

The problem is that i cant choose between the Hive Cannon, or the Warpy....

I didn't notice any weapon sway when they were aiming in the videos. Cool.

I just thought of something. I wonder if it would be possible to stand in a room with no windows and snipe people on the other side of the level. Basically, I'm wondering if you need to already be pointed at an enemy to find their heat signature or if you could just scan around a wall and find someone on the other side. We've never seen any videos of the person aiming trying to find a target.

At E3, the possible targets had little brackets around them when they were behind cover, and in the weapons trailer you can see a faint silhouette as well as some brackets.

Another thing I've been thinking: what are you supposed to do when someone is sniping at you? It's not like you can take cover...
