The rifle.

Used by Fox McCloud, the Demon Sniper Rifle serves as a long ranged energy based incineration rifle, and a precursor to the Demon-class weapons. 

Characteristics and History

The Demon Class sniper rifle is a rather compact, but incredibly powerful weapon used briefly as a prototype by the Cornerian Army. By the time of the Galactic Chat War the rifle was somewhat commonly used by the elite forces of the Army (e.g. Star Fox). A few of these special weapons survived the slip-space rift incident and still are carried alongside Fox. While it has impressive stopping power, the shorter barrel means it lacks the range of other rifles.

  • Lightweight.
  • Fires shards of light, which cause burns and melt armor.
