The Sniper Mine was the latest in long-distance target neutralization straight off the shelves of Gadgetron's "historical" weapons lineup. With the sleek, attractive lines of an ancient crossbow and the powerful explosive punch of Gadgetron's latest in ballistic technology, the Sniper Mine's Tachyon-drive self-propelling dart flew dealt more damage the more you zoomed in. The upgrade of this weapon was the Deadeye Mine. The farther away the enemy that was shot was from you in sniper mode, the redder and more powerful the bullet was.
