The Dragon Sniper is a sniper rifle, commonly featured in the Uncharted series. It is rarely found and always has a magazine of five bullets, with a maximum ammo capacity for ten, except in Golden Abyss in which it is fifteen. Due to its rarity, whenever it is available it is generally only with the express purpose of picking off enemy snipers or powerful long-distance targets in a large area. To counteract its range, accuracy, and power, it has a slow firing rate and reload speed, and ammo is always in very limited supply. If used by enemies the weapon will have a red laser, indicating their aim.

In Drake's Fortune it scopes in automatically when aimed, and can further zoom in by pressing R3. Among Thieves features an adjustable zoom function over the standard scoped view. Drake's Deception added actual recoil and now deals less damage, requiring two shots if it is not a headshot.

HistoryEdit

Drake's FortuneEdit

Race to the Rescue gameplay 3

Nate trying to pick off a sniper with the Dragon Sniper.

The Dragon Sniper is never actually used by enemies in Drake's Fortune, as the only snipers encountered use the Desert-5 pistol. It is presumed they belong to Atoq Navarro's mercenaries' arsenal, as they are typically found in their presence, and the one found in "Trapped" (behind a staircase) likely belongs to them as they also left several M4 rifles behind.

Aside from "Trapped", Nate also found and used one in the monastery's courtyard during "Sanctuary?", and again in the same area in the later chapter "Race to the Rescue". Dragon Snipers also were used in "On the Trail of the Treasure" in the graveyard, and in "Unwelcome Guests" in the bunker.

MultiplayerEdit

Among ThievesEdit

In Among Thieves multiplayer, the Dragon Sniper has had several changes made to it due to Among Thieves patches developed by Naughty Dog. Originally, it took two Dragon Sniper shots to kill an opponent, reduced to one shot when hitting the head. The firing rate was fast, with the player easily able to make rapid shots in succession.

Update 1.05 rebalanced weapon damage for all guns, including the Dragon Sniper. The sniper became a one shot kill, regardless of the body part hit, with the same rate of fire. The magazine size was reduced to six bullets in an effort by Naughty Dog to counter glitching with the sniper.

Update 1.06 added more changes to the Dragon Sniper. The rate of fire for the Dragon Sniper was also reduced by 10%, meaning no more rapid succession shooting.

Drake's DeceptionEdit

In the Drake's Deception multiplayer, the Dragon Sniper is no longer a power weapon limited to certain maps, but is instead a standard weapon. It is one of the four available long guns selectable for each player loadout. In terms of performance, the weapon is less of a true sniper rifle and more of a marksman rifle; the weapon has reduced firepower, requiring two shots at mid-range to kill an opponent, as opposed to the single-shot yet stronger T-Bolt Sniper, which requires one shot to kill a target.

The Dragon Sniper can be outfitted with modifications such as Clip Size, Call Out (lvl 14), Reload Speed (lvl 20), and Max Ammo (lvl 23). Sully's Dragon enables call out, marking enemies for teammates, and max ammo, giving more bullets. Draza's Dragon enables clip size, which increases the magazine from five bullets to eight, and increased reload speed.
