SRS99-S5 AM sniper rifle
From Halopedia, the Halo wiki
The Sniper Rifle System 99-Series 5 Anti-Matériel (SRS99-S5 AM) is a gas-operated anti-materiél sniper rifle used by the United Nations Space Command, part of the widely-used SRS99 series of weapons. The S5 model is designed and manufactured by Misriah Armory.
The SRS99-S5 AM is a semi-automatic, gas-operated sniper rifle that fires 14.5×114mm M232 APFSDS rounds from a 4-round magazine. It is, alongside its primary Covenant counterpart, the Type-27 Special Application Sniper Rifle, the most accurate and arguably the most powerful small-arms weapon in either arsenal.
It is a successor to the S2 variants used throughout the Human-Covenant War by the UNSC Navy and Marine Corps. The S5 model incorporates many features seen on the older SRS99 rifle used in large numbers by the Army. The SRS99-S5 AM is intended for use by augmented personnel of the UNSC Armed Forces. The sniper features a very strong carrying handle, standard weapon attachment rails, and a heavily ruggedized frame. The SRS99 is equipped with the Oracle R-variant scope.
The Sniper Rifle is a precision power weapon, which fires highly damaging projectiles at near instantaneous speeds. It features two levels of zoom, and a magazine of 4 rounds. This makes it a powerhouse at long ranges, capable of killing most enemies, including enemy players in multiplayer, with one headshot, and outranging other weapons like the Battle Rifle significantly. To compensate for its power, it is a relatively rare weapon, and ammo for it is difficult to find.
