"A precision sniping weapon, the Phase Rifle consumes energy to fire. Unlike the BXT1, this rifle does not suffer any falloff damage. When Rage is active this weapon hits harder and charges faster."

The Phase Rifle is one of the four sniper rifle variations in Tribes: Ascend, and is an unlockable primary weapon for the Light Armor. When this weapon is equipped, it locks an Energy pack in your pack slot. It also forces the player's energy pool max to 75, 90 with Rage active. It takes 5.35 seconds for the weapon to be fully charged.
