An automatic weapon which fires bolts of energy at a medium rate. Secondary fire causes an appendage to emerge from the weapon and attach itself to Tommy's eyeball, augmenting his vision with a zoomed-in "scope" view. The zoom can be further magnified too. In this mode, creatures glow brightly when the targeting area passes over them, making them highly visible. Also, while zoomed, the Rifle fires only single shots which are very accurate and deal much more damage per shot, but also consume more ammo per shot.
The damage per second (DPS) is, however, higher in automatic mode, than in sniper mode. When empty, the rifle will slowly regenerate ammo up to about a quarter of its maximum capacity, enough for a few shots.
The rifle is universal weapon that performs well in any situation.
- During idle animation, the Hunter Rifle's appendage scope will detach and look around its environment before retracting back to the weapon.
