Anti Material Sniper Rifle is the 20th weapon available, costs 490 and is unlocked at level 30. It boasts extremely high Damage, Range and Accuracy, but has low Agility. It contains 5 bullets in a clip. It, including its first skin, it was the Tier 11 prize in the Ninja Path event for 12000 ninja points.
This weapon is able to kill in a quick amount of time, due to its ability to rapidly shoot 1 bullet at a time, taking one shot for a head shot and 1-2 for a shot through the body. With the added Range and Accuracy you can easily guarantee long-range kills and/or head shots. However, it does not allow you to move quickly. The scope is necessary for hitting enemies; however, it reduces your field of vision, and makes you extremely vulnerable to close-range attacks. The scope is also one of the best scopes in the game as it provides better magnification than the Sniper Rifle and the Scoped Assault Rifle.
Nevertheless, this weapon is extremely dangerous and opponents usually hope they don't run into the sniper's rifle's line of fire and for a good reason too. Unlike it's relatives, it is able to fire it's bullets without having to manually reload. The scoped cross-hairs remain as you recover from the recoil, allowing you to still lock onto your opponent after firing.
This weapon may seem like the most dangerous gun available, but there is a more powerful version of this gun, and currently debatable as the most powerful of all snipers the DMR-003 Which can be obtained by purchasing the designated marksman bundle
