Description
When looking for the cleanest, most beautiful line, every firearm excepting the sniper rifle feels clumsy and random. An instrument of precision in the hands is required if one is focused in the mind. Don't let the name fool you. The Platypus is precise.

The Platypus 70 sniper rifle is a primary weapon released for free alongside Bodhi in his eponymous character pack, to promote the Point Break DLC.

OverviewEdit

The Platypus 70 is statistically similar to the Nagant. However, it has more total ammo but cannot be modified for low concealment due to its limited mod pool.

On Overkill and below, this weapon is powerful enough to be capable of killing any unit besides the Bulldozer, Captain Winters and SWAT Van Turret with one headshot.

SummaryEdit

Pros:

  • High damage
  • Armor piercing
  • High accuracy
  • Decent fire rate for a sniper rifle

TipsEdit

  • The Platypus is hands down an "all-out" sniper rifle, only being suitable for live combat due to its abysmal Concealment.
  • Due to its high stopping power, headshots are not really necessary unless taking on special units. On Death Wish, however, it is recommended to aim for the head due to the enemies' expanded health pools making them harder to kill with body shots.
  • As with any sniper rifle, an Ammo bag is always helpful.

TriviaEdit

  • The Platypus 70 is based on the Winchester Model 70, with the addition of Fabrique Nationale's Tactical Box Magazine adapter to allow use of detachable magazines.
  • The Platypus 70 is the second weapon that has a cosmetic effect if used by a certain character, (after the Shinsakuto Katana with Jiro) in this case if the Platypus is used by Bodhi when headshotting a Taser; upon a killing shot, the Taser's head will either have a huge hole in it, his face gone, or even the removal of the head.
  • The Platypus 70 is the third sniper rifle to be able to use iron sights, after the Nagant and Repeater 1874.
  • It is the first and so far only sniper rifle to be made available to all players without the need for ownership of paid DLC.
  • The first-person animation set of the Platypus has the player character resting his/her thumb on the cap of the bolt and very close to where their cheek would be when aiming, which could potentially result in "shooter's thumb" a.k.a. getting whacked in the face with their thumb knuckle due to the recoil.
