The Sniper SX-1A is a large caliber sniper in Crackdown 2. It is found on high level Cell members. Its damage and effective range is greater then that of the agency's starting sniper but has a slower fire rate and a small magazine of 5 rounds. Therefore a class 2 sniper.
This 50cal. Marksman Rifle is for those who are willing to assassinate key targets from afar. Popular with female Cell marksmen, the SX-1A is the most modern model in the world of sniping. With a low rate of fire, Agents are advised to take careful shots on targets as the small clips will punish hair-triggerers. It can kill most weak enemies in a single shot to the body, but the strongest, such as Freak Pounders, require two shots to the body or one headshot to kill them. Also, the weapon is very loud and, when shot it leaves a trail of air, which can reveal the position of the sniper.
The weapon, being a anti-personnel rifle, is useless against thick armor, instead notifying the vehicle of the sniper's presence, even the Squad Chopper can shrug off the 50 cal and return fire. However, open aired vehicles are still vulnerable to this weapon.
