Usage & Description

The Nailer is a semi-automatic sniper rifle. While it does wield slightly increased damage, it has part restrictions that prevent exceptional Nailers from spawning.

Drop Guide


  • The Nailer is the only unique weapon to feature a parts code in its name, on its item card.
  • The Nailer's name and red special weapons effect text is possibly a reference to pneumatic nailing guns used in construction, the red text specifically after the sound they make when driving a nail.


The Nailer is distinguished by its unique Nailer_barrel3 barrel, which is barrel3 with more damage. Its material, Nailer_Material is equivalent to Material_Dahl_1. The Nailer is restricted to spawning with sight3 and body2. It always spawns with mag5. The Nailer can spawn with any accessory or stock. Please see stat modifiers for an explanation on how to interpret all of these modifiers.
