"The SAP20 deals more base damage than the Phase Rifle, but consumes more energy and has fewer charges before a reload is required."

The SAP20 is one of the four sniper rifle variations in Tribes: Ascend, and is an unlockable primary weapon for the Sentinel. Unlike the BXT series rifles, the SAP20 does not need to be charged in order to do full damage, instead it drains energy from the player's energy pool. A minimum of 100 energy is required to do full damage.

The SAP20 is a hitscan weapon, meaning that as long as the crosshair is on the target, it will hit instantly.


  • 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.
