Funny, to Snipe you have to camp, and this is an anti camping weapon. So if someone else has a Phase Rifle and see's that person camping and sniping, he'd be wide open. So basically it's and anti or itself.
Hmm... So the enemies are alerted when they are being targeted? I wonder why none of the AI in the demonstrations try to run away then...they just sit there... Maybe just to show how it works? Or, the infinite health code messing with the program?
Also, if someone was VERY consistent with the Phase Rifle, wouldn't that just mean only Snipers dominate? What is the anti-Phase Rifle weapon? If it's just another Phase Rifle, then only other snipers can stop snipers; Thus making any other weapon useless. :(
Plus, why is it a one hit death to the torso in the Weapon Feature Video? Shouldn't it be to the head? Torso shots are VERY easy to get off. That would also mean that if people wanted to survive a Phase Rifle shot, they would absolutely HAVE to have the damage reduction perk SmallerRidley mentioned.
