The Dragon Sniper is a weapon featured in the Uncharted series. The Dragon Sniper appears in all Uncharted video games, and serves as the primary sniper rifle in the series.


[edit] Description

Nathan Drake with the Dragon.

As the name suggests, the Dragon Sniper is a sniper rifle. Therefore, it is a very accurate and powerful weapon. However, it is hindered somewhat by slow reload times. Using this weapon usually guarantees the player one-shot defeats of opponents, unless facing a heavily-armed enemy.

The Dragon Sniper first appears in Uncharted: Drake's Fortune. It is rarely encountered in the game, but when it is encountered, it is usually being used by Atoq Navarro's mercenaries. The weapon returns in Uncharted 2: Among Thieves, being somewhat more common. In Among Thieves, the gun is mostly used by Zoran Lazarević's soldiers - namely Lovac.

The Dragon Sniper returns in Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, and gameplay demonstration videos have revealed that the weapon will be available in the PlayStation Vita video game Uncharted: Golden Abyss.[1]
