The '''Combat Sniper''' is a semi-automatic [[Sniper Rifles|sniper rifle]] available in the series since ''[[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]]''.
 
The '''PSG-1''' is a semi-automatic Sniper Rifle based on the rifle of the same name. It is designed and manufactured by Heckler & Koch of Germany. In the GTA Series, the PSG-1 is equipped with both a telescopic sight and a red laser point sight. The rifle has a seven bullet magazine, allowing for (brief) rapid firing, in contrast to the bolt-action mechanism of the regular [[Sniper Rifle]].
 
 
The HK MSG90 rifle, a Military Variant of the PSG-1, was first featured in [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City]] and is also seen in [[Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories]]. The rifle is labeled as the "PSG-1" only in the PS2 Version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City; all other versions label it '''.308 Sniper''', and it is labeled '''Laser Sighted Sniper Rifle''' in Liberty City Stories. It also has a [[suppressor]] but serves no purpose other than athstetics. In [[Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories]], the MSG90 is replaced by a [[Dragunov]] (SVD-1) to fit the game's setting of [[1984]].
 
 
The PSG-1 (not a MSG90) in [[Grand Theft Auto IV]] is referenced in-game as the '''Combat Sniper'''. It has a ten-round magazine, and excellent range. The reticule used is not a standard [[wp:Telescopic_sight#Mil-dot_reticules|mil-dot]], but the graduated sight found on the Russian [http://world.guns.ru/sniper/sn18-e.htm SVD Dragunov]'s PSO-1 scope. During first-person aiming, if the player is standing, there is a noticeable movement of the scope due to [[Niko Bellic]]'s breathing. This can be minimized by crouching. The Combat Sniper rifle delivers a one-headshot kill in single player and multiplayer, unless the target is armored. It will also kill with about 3 shots to the body. It can easily take down pedestrians, drivers, motorcylists and, with patience and extreme accurancy, take down helicopter pilots.

"Assassination remains rifle in Vice City. Who is Mr. Black?"
―GTA Vice City Website.

The Combat Sniper is a semi-automatic sniper rifle available in the series since Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

DescriptionEdit

In the 3D universe, the rifle is equipped with both a telescopic sight and a red laser point sight. It has a seven bullet magazine, allowing for (brief) rapid firing, in contrast to the bolt-action mechanism of the regular Sniper Rifle. The H&K SR9 T rifle was first featured in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City and is also seen in Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories. The rifle is labeled as the "PSG-1" only in the PS2 Version of Grand Theft Auto: Vice City; all other versions label it .308 Sniper, and it is labeled Laser Sighted Sniper Rifle in Liberty City Stories. It also has a suppressor but serves no purpose other than aesthetics. In Grand Theft Auto: Vice City Stories, the SR9 T is replaced by a Dragunov SVD, and it is referred to as "Laser Sniper".

The PSG-1 in Grand Theft Auto IV is referred to in-game as the Combat Sniper. It has a ten-round magazine, and excellent range. The reticule used is not a standard mil-dot, but the graduated sight found on the Russian SVD Dragunov's PSO-1 scope. During first-person aiming, if the player is standing, there is a noticeable movement of the scope due to Niko Bellic's breathing. This can be minimized by crouching. The Combat Sniper rifle delivers a one-headshot kill in single player and multiplayer, unless the target is armored. It will also kill with about 3 shots to the body. It can easily take down pedestrians, drivers, motorcyclists and, with patience and extreme accuracy, take down helicopter pilots.
