Description
The Desertfox, is a high powered Sniper Rifle. Originally designed for desert combat, it wields remarkably well in urban environments. The bullpup design and steady handling makes it a perfect fit on each assassin’s long range gun rack.

The Desertfox is a bullpup sniper rifle added with the release of the John Wick Weapon Pack.

OverviewEdit

The Desertfox is a compact bullpup sniper rifle for the particularly sneaky, offering the highest Concealment value of its class. Damage-wise, it only falls behind the Thanatos .50 cal in terms of power, being able to effortlessly kill anything short of a Bulldozer in a single headshot unmodified.

The tradeoffs are the rifle's very small magazine size of only 5 shots and noticeably worst base Accuracy stat in the class, though the latter can be remedied with the right mods and boost.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • High damage for a sniper rifle, can kill most enemies in one body shot on Overkill difficulty and below, and one headshot on Mayhem and Death Wish

TriviaEdit

  • 20161021120655 1

    Cal .338 Lapua Magnum.

    The Desertfox was based on the Desert Tech SRS-A1 Covert, .338 Lapua Magnum variant as evident by its short forend, 5-round magazine and receiver texture. Modifying it with the Long Barrel turns it into the standard SRS-A1.
    • While the Desertfox's uses what looks to be a 16'' barrel by default, that barrel length is not offered in .338 Lapua Magnum. The standard barrel length for a SRS-A1 Covert is 18'', the in-game one matches that of the .308 Winchester model instead. 
    • It should be noted that while the Desertfox was meant to be a reference to the sniper rifle used by John Wick in his eponymous movie, the in-game weapon cannot be modified to resemble it. The most notable differences are the flat dark earth chassis and still much too short railed foregrip even with an upgraded barrel.
  • The Desertfox was manufactured or at least imported into the United States by Crosskill Tactical Armaments as seen on its receiver.
