The Steyr Scout is a Sniper Rifle for the Assassin. It is unlocked at level 1. It is a standard issue for Strike Force sharpshooters, and it can be derived from its namesake that this rifle was meant for use by reconnaissance battalions.

The scout is the very first weapon an Assassin can use. The Scout is a very powerful weapon with excellent head damage, along with great accuracy. However, it has a very small amount of ammo per clip. This means that the user should stay back and take his/her time. It is very similar to the Dragunov. It is also the only 'Sniper Rifle' lacking a scope (This explains why it does not have increased vision range).
The Scout is best paired with a pistol for higher damage. The best thing to do with the scout is shoot the target in the head. It might be hard at first but take time to practice, it will help you down the road. Shoot the target in the head and if they do not die, switch to your secondary and finish them off.
