Data Sources
Census API source: M77-B API Data?

The M77-B is a sniper rifle available to the Terran Republic. It is unlocked by default.

The M77-B serves as the balanced option in the long-range sniper rifle arsenal. It can neither boast the raw damage of the RAMS .50M or the ammo capacity of the SR-7, nor does it bring the velocity of either, but instead offers a relatively fast rechamber time and a fast reload speed, giving it the least downtime of all long-range rifles.

As with most bolt-action sniper rifles, the M77-B deals 210% damage on a headshot, rather than only 200%, increasing the range at which the rifle is able to kill standard infantry with one headshot.

The M77-B, Icon NC.png NC14 Bolt Driver, and Icon VS.png XM98 are statistically identical.

Damage Fall-off[]

Damage drop-off is linear, below stats only represent damage tiers fall-off.
The two intermediate ranges listed are the ranges at which two bodyshots or one headshot, respectively, no longer kill a standard infantry target.

  • 650 before 10 meters
  • 500 at 214 meters
  • 477 at 245 meters
  • 400 after 350 meters
