A rifle is an advanced ranged weapon which shoots bullets out of a long barrel, propelled by a flammable substance known as gunpowder.[1][2]

A rifle possesses excellent accuracy at range, comparable to a crossbow, and twice as deadly. The technology to produce rifles is beyond the ability of the humans of most worlds.


The automatic rifle allows 30 shots to be fired before reloading. Its fast rate of fire allows the wielder to spray an area with shots, shooting ten bullets inaccurately around a wide area.

The hunting rifle is slightly more lethal than the automatic rifle, but can only fire five shoots before reloading.
