Snider is the title of a group of sniper rifles and are manufactured exclusively by Maliwan. This title is saved for sniper rifles using a Maliwan or Dahl barrel. The Snider is obtained randomly from any suitable loot source.

Usage & Description

The Snider is an extremely potent weapon that possesses increased elemental damage and a very high elemental effect chance at the cost of base damage, as well as optional recoil reduction on variants spawning with the Dahl barrel.

The Snider deals an additional 50% damage as a splash. This splash cannot crit, and is not boosted by grenade damage bonuses.
