The sniper rifle is a weapon that appears in Carnivores, Carnivores 2, Carnivores Ice Age, Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, Carnivores: Ice Age, and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD. Apparently a Dragunov SVD in Carnivores and a scoped rifle in Carnivores 2, it has the highest accuracy of any weapon in the Carnivores series, making it the weapon of choice for hunting Tyrannosaurus. This is not a weapon that is of any use when encountering charging carnivores. The sniper rifle has six bullets in Carnivores and seven in the other games. The menu image in Carnivores 2 and Ice Age looks exactly like the rifle, but with a scope and a slightly longer barrel.

Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn[edit | edit source]

The sniper rifle as it appears in Carnivores Reborn.

The sniper rifle returns in Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter HD and Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter Reborn as the final weapon to unlock, and is one of the most powerful weapons in the game. It is extremely accurate, and will fire exactly where the crosshairs are placed. Coupled with the X-Ray visor , the sniper rifle is arguably the most effective weapon obtainable. Despite its great power, it is the last weapon a hunter would want when confronting a charging carnivore. It is also extremely loud, and will scare away herbivores or attract carnivores. The sniper rifle costs 500 gems to use in Carnivores HD, and 400 gems in Carnivores Reborn.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The sniper rifle and laser rifle are the only weapons in the series with no 3D model.
  • The sniper rifle has gone through many changes throughout the series, the most notable include: in Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, the sniper rifle's scope is now just colored black, and the crosshairs run completely from top to bottom and left to right. The sniper rifle's scope is absent in Carnivores Ice Age, and the crosshairs are green instead of black.
  • The sniper rifle has no recoil in Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter.
  • In a massive update to Carnivores: Dinosaur Hunter, the sniper rifle underwent a couple changes. The weapon now comes with only 8 bullets (keep in mind, Double Ammo is permanently toggled on in the game), but has experienced a whopping damage increase, capable of killing smaller predators in a single shot.
