"The BXT1-A does more damage the longer you are in Scope. This variant has a slower charge time, but can fire more shots before reloading."

The BXT-1A Rifle is a variant of the BXT1 Rifle, the only difference being that the BXT-1A holds more ammo, and takes longer to charge, 2.8 seconds for a full charge versus the 2.5 seconds of the BXT-1.

  • Internally, this weapon is named the Sniper Rifle MKD.
  • There is currently an aimbot out that can be used with this weapon because it is hitscan. Another hack uses this weapon to increase a targeted player's speed, ramming them into a wall, usually killing them.
