Usage & Description
The Patriot is an unusual weapon, boasting a high damage and rate of fire, but very low accuracy for a sniper rifle. This low accuracy also ignores normal sniper rifle behavior, as the bullets will deviate from the crosshair even when using the scope. This makes the weapon impossible to use at long ranges, and difficult to use even at medium range when bullet speed is factored in. While the high damage might seem to offset these problems, the effective damage is only marginally better than what can be found on standard Jakobs sniper rifles, and is inferior to the damage of standard Muckamuck variants, to say nothing of other unique sniper rifles.
The Patriot is best considered a high powered assault rifle replacement, suitable for close to medium range encounters. Unfortunately the low carrying capacity of sniper ammo makes it impractical for most classes other than Salvador, especially if they use any other sniper weapons, and the weapon's reduced magazine and high reload time also further undermine its usefulness. It can be considered at best a niche weapon.
- The Patriot is a variant of the Droog sniper rifle.
- Uses the same Vladof sickle skin as seen on the Stinger, a pistol with the opposite effects of the Patriot (very high accuracy, decreased aim sway, decreased damage, higher fire rate and reload speed, very low recoil and very high accuracy recovery rate)
