Item ID:

The Varmint Rifle is a long range bolt-action rifle. It uses a clip with a capacity of 5 rounds .223 Ammo. The weapon has a large range, a long recoil delay, high critical chance and deals high damage compared to other weapons, but it takes some practice (aiming skill). The weapon is very loud and will attract nearby zombies in a large area.

The rifle is also closely related to the Hunting rifle, which has lower maximum damage, lower hit chance and higher recoil delay, but has higher minimum damage, higher critical chance and isn't as loud.

You can also modify the weapon with 8 types of modifications.

The varmint rifle along with the hunting rifle can be found in the gun shop (above Twiggy's Bar) in West Point.


Reloading difficulty can be set to either Easy, Normal, or Hardcore.

They can all be added to the rifle using a screwdriver.
