A lightweight weapon, but can't two shot kill infantry consistently on Gold. A Viper X is easy to obtain, but is easily outclassed by guns such as the Incisor and even the Raptor. On a Marksman, it could be viable. I'll have to try that....
Lightweight snipers are overrated. If you're a caster, you should be using an AR,,SMG, or a pistol imbued with ammo bonuses to supplement your powers. A sniper just forces you to scope when you should be positioning yourself for sending a barrage of powers.
looking through the scope extends the lock on range of your powers and the viper is the lightest gun with a long range scope. Just thought I'd throw that out as people seam to forget it.

It's an alright gun starting out. It's in the lightest tier of sniper rifle, has acceptable fire rate and six shots, and a decent ammo supply. It was good when I started out since I liked having more than one shot per clip, and it didn't weigh too much so I could still use it on power classes.
Problem is, it's completely outclassed by the Indra, which is in the same weight class, has the multi-shot "screw shield gate" thing going on, and has much better DPS.
That and its damage is just depressing.
5/10, but I'm probably being a bit generous.
