The Scalpel Sniper Rifle, manufactured by Kastak Arms, is a selective-fire sniper rifle that fires 7.62 mm rounds and boasts an effective range of 120 meters. The default loadout includes Black Prism (8x Telescopic) optics, and the rifle's barrel can be collapsed for ease of use. The Scalpel is a unique and versatile weapon, featuring two barrels stacked atop one another and two firing modes. This allows for adaptability in various shooting situations, as the rifle can deliver a single, powerful shot from a long distance or fire both barrels in quick succession to create a double-shot burst.[1]
