The DKS-501 sniper rifle is a long range projectile weapon in Fallout 2.

Background

The following section is transcluded from Sniper rifle. To modify, please edit the source page.

A DKS-501 sniper rifle. Excellent long range projectile weapon.[1] Originally .308, this one is chambered in the more common .223 caliber.[2]A DKS-501 sniper rifle. Excellent long range projectile weapon. Originally .308, this one is chambered in the more common 7.62 caliber.[3]

Characteristics

An excellent rifle that will likely be the mainstay of a sniper build throughout the game until the M72 Gauss rifle comes into play. While it costs 7 AP to fire off an aimed shot, the outcome leaves nothing to be desired.

Excellent choice for John Cassidy and Vic, who can turn the tide of a lot of engagements with a well placed shot.
