Being the golden variant of the classic Sniper Rifle, the Golden Sniper features a slightly higher damage and larger clip size. The Golden Sniper retain the traditional bolt-action fire from the Sniper Rifle, thus lowering its fire rate. Its damage might not be as good as you think as it cannot kill Masked Viper in one shot.
Best used from a distance, using this weapon in large maps may be a good idea. Try to snipe enemies that are coming towards you. Do not snipe enemies from afar as the damage drop off allows your enemy to survive a shot, while giving away your location.
