—Weapon description

The Bogomol is a Sniper weapon introduced in the 15.2.0 Snipers vs. Shotgunners: Night Ops update. It can be upgraded to the Bogomol Up1.

 Appearance Edit

It appears as a rigid makeshift pneumatic air rifle .

It has a wooden frame stock with a large dark blue air tank with a grey valve and a pipe connected to the body of the weapon. The body is grey and has a grey bolt handle and ejection port, and has a makeshift scope mount with a scope taped onto it.

It also features a blue handguard with a air pipe on the bottom and a grey barrel.

When equipped, a green bar will appear near the bottom of the screen, which will decrease as more shots are fired.

Strategy Edit

When at full power, it does devastating damage, able to one shot a medium armored player when hit in the head with a secondary knockback effect, however this decreases overtime.

To regain power, the player must either reload the weapon or wait after a period of time in order for the tank to refill air, depending on how much shots was fired.

This is also paired with a slow rate of fire, an average ammo capacity and decent mobility.

Tips Edit
