The Bolt Action Rifle was one of the strongest and rarest weapons in the game. It used 556 Ammo and could fire three times before needing a full reload. It was primary used as a sniper rifle due to it's effectiveness at long range combat. It's effectiveness at long range could also be improved by adding a Holographic Sight and/or a Silencer. However, Silencers were known to decrease the range of the rifle.
The Bolt Action Rifle was great for raids, as one could have a teammate position themselves on a hill or rock and provide overwatch and covering fire on the targeted base. It took one shot to the head or two to the chest to kill a player regardless of what Armor they were wearing.
The Bolt Action Rifle could be found in Loot Crates.
It could also be crafted at a Workbench
