|— Weapon Description|
The Walther WA-2000 is a Sniper Rifle first introduced during the 12-22-10 Content Update.
This rifle is semi-automatic with rather high damage, enough to kill enemies with full health with one shot provided the shot lands on his stomach or head instead of the limbs or the chest. It's already superior damage can be increased with the use of mods. However, this weapon also has it's drawbacks, such as its lack for mobility and rather small magazine size. This rifle does not have full stability while running thus requiring "shift-walking" to be precise unless one has the Sniper Field Manual III. This weapon is usually turned over for a more popular weapon, such as the AWM or the TPG-1, despite the fact that it's stats are similar to a bolt-action rifle's. Its stats are comparable to the SR25 or the SV98.
The WA2000 used to cost a hefty 58k which has been lowered to a much more reasonable price,thus removing one of its biggest flaws.The rifle sees frequent use alongside the Sniper Field Manual III,as it increases its performance greatly.
